It’s well into December now and our national lockdown has started to ease, so it’s beginning to look a ‘little’ like Christmas — finally. With 2020 set to be the biggest every year for festive eCommerce shopping, the clock is ticking if you’re on the hunt for a special gift.
Last week we gave you a few great gift ideas for the coffee lover in your life, and we’re doing the same today. We’ve mixed it up this time — some next-level ideas for your favourite confirmed coffee aficionado, and some of our most popular products as cool stocking fillers.
Awesome coffee machines
Sage Creatista Uno Nespresso machine: One of our most popular gift ideas — the Creatista Uno is the best way to brew and go with the convenience of Nespresso, and an ever-growing range of compatible capsules. Get real barista quality coffee literally in an instant — with a three-second heat-up time, three programmable cup sizes, eight texture and 11 milk temperature settings. We have a special Christmas offer for our customers — get it for only €299, down from €379, with free delivery and 50 free coffee capsules. Order here.
Sage Barista Pro: If you’d like to turn their kitchen into a coffee shop that’s open for business 24/7, the Sage Barista Pro bean to cup machine will make the coffee lover in your life feel like an absolute pro! The compact machine grinds, brews and serves coffee shop level servings from the kitchen counter, and really does look the part. With a three-second heat-up time, they’ll make light work of divine espressos, and they’ll be pouring cappuccinos like a pro with the steam wand for sumptuous milk texture.
The Pro features a 260g bean hopper, a two-litre water tank, adjustable grind control and other perfect little touches such as an integrated tamper.
This is another machine that’s on special offer for Christmas — it’s down to €749 from €799, with free delivery and free speciality coffee beans. Order here.
