There are lots of things that come to mind when we think about summer. But, one of our favorite days is the one where we get to honor the men who have had a hand in raising us, otherwise known as Father’s Day.
Each year, dads everywhere are celebrated with love, cookouts, and gifts. While dads appreciate all of it, we all know that most of them have a drawer or closet full of gifts that missed the mark.
This year, don’t make him settle for yet another tie or wallet. Think about what he really loves – coffee! Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift can be a challenge.
That’s why we’ve done the work for you and come up with a list of 10 of our favorite coffee-themed gifts that all of the father figures in your life are going to love, and there’s not a single cufflink included.
1. VacOne™ Air Brewer
Called a "clever, quick and portable way to make a cup" by TechCrunch, the VacOne™ Brewer was designed by Eduardo Umaña - an engineer and watch designer with an affinity for the flavorful nuances of cold-brew coffee.
With a USB powered battery that can extract 100 brews with each charge, this brewer can make both hot and cold brew with just a push of a button. Get one for the coffee aficionado who has limited counter space, and pair it with a monthly coffee subscription from a premium roaster. We're obviously biased to a Nomad subscription (save 10% with code FATHERS at checkout).
If $93.00 is a steep price point, an excellent (and lower-priced) option is the OXO Compact Brewer for $23.00 and brews both cold and hot coffee.
2. Camera Lens Coffee Thermos
If the dad in your life has an artistic side, he’ll appreciate the clever and functional design of this camera lens coffee thermos. This thermos, designed to be a replica of the Canon Lens Model EF 24-105mm f / 4L IS USM Lens, holds up to 11 ounces of his favorite brew.

8. Low-Acid Coffee Beans
Know a dad who loves coffee but struggles with acid reflux or GERD? The good news is he doesn't need to stop drinking his favorite morning beverage.
A switch to Volcanica's low-acid coffee beans should do the trick.
Volcanica uses 'Z-Roasting' - an acid reducer roasting process that is designed to prevent harmful coffee acids that are normally created during the typical roasting process.
Volcanica also uses the Swiss Water Decaffeination method which is easily the best method for decaffeination because it doesn’t use harmful chemicals which are commonly used for decaffeination techniques.
