Christmas Gifts for Food Lovers

Day Four – Weanie Beans Premium Coffee:

Christmas is coming, and in a vain attempt to make sure that we all don’t get too fat I’m doing a round-up of some of the things you can give to a food lover that will NOT disappoint but won’t need to be used up during the Christmas holiday period when there’s so much food around to eat that even the best intentioned gift can be wasted.

What I’m aiming for here are things that are beautifully packaged and that I know are excellent quality.  Things that a food lover will enjoy perhaps in the months following Christmas or perhaps that will last for years.   The lovely gift packs from Weanie Beans actually cross both categories because many of them include a mixture of coffee and equipment to make or drink it.  And, for some reason, their name just makes me smile.  Which is never a bad thing!

I have to admit to a fascination with the aeropress.  It’s a device that allows you to make a single cup of fresh coffee with minimal mess.  And, all you do is pour in boiling water! No filters and no glass jugs.  Weanie Beans have a beautiful gift pack with an aeropress, a keep cup and a pack of their fabulous coffee called the ‘Commuter Pack’.  So, if you know someone who complains about the coffee on the train, the office brew or simply works somewhere without access to any fresh coffee at all, here’s the answer.


I  love the Coffees of the World gift pack.  Beautifully packaged and a great range of coffees for a die-hard coffee lover who likes to find out a bit more about their favourite drink.

Weanie Beans also have a coffee subscription club so, for a less fattening Christmas gift that goes on and on…well, why not send someone a year of coffee – a lovely pack of fresh coffee will arrive every month!.  Or if they are real addicts, you can go for the weekly subscription (fresh coffee every week for three whole months!)

There’s a lot more on offer in the Weanie Beans Online Shop so why not check it out.  And, if you think it all sounds a bit familiar, well, you might just have bumped into them at Barnes or Chiswick farmers market…or even seen their lovely packs at a London Deli or Angela Malik’s cook school.

Disclosure:  I have received a sample of products from Weanie Beans free of charge.  All views expressed are my own.

    I love that there’s “minimal mess” involved! This has always stopped me from using presses in the past…but because of the simplicity and cute packaging, I may just have to try Aeropress!
