The GG Holiday Gift Guide

The GG Holiday Gift Guide

Posted by Miranda Haney on

Happy Holidays from Team GG!  From the entertaining to the seemingly never-ending to-do list, we know this time of year can be downright stressful. To make things a little easier, we’ve compiled our favorite products for every coffee and tea lover on your list. So kick back your feet, pour yourself a cup of joe, and let us do the shopping this year. 

For the Serious Home Brewer
Stagg EKG Electric Kettle

You’re staring at the mother of all electric kettles. The Stagg kettle by Fellow comes with variable temperature control, lightning fast heat time, a brewing stopwatch and bluetooth connectivity that'll have your your beloved home brewer thanking you for years to come.

The sleek matte design comes in a handful of colors that look amazing in every kitchen.

Available now at all cafe locations

For the Adventurous Coffee Drinker
Coffee Gift Subscription

Truly the gift that keeps on giving! Each month we'll send a bag of coffee to someone you love. Perhaps it'll be a chocolatey Colombian, a complex Ethiopian or a juicy Kenyan. You can choose a three, six, or 12-month installment. Available online.

For the Die-hard GG fan
Limited Edition Holiday Blend and Mug

Treat your loved one to the most exclusive thing their favorite local roaster has to offer! That's right, this mug and blend are here for one month only and they're selling like hot cakes. The coffee is a blend of Kenyan, Ethiopian, and Colombian beans with festive notes of bittersweet chocolate and deep stone fruit. Our 2019 holiday mug was designed by local artist Seain Kennady and is perfect for curling up by the fire. (The armadillo's name is Snowflake, btw.)

Available at all cafe locations and online here

For the Entertainer
Airscape Coffee Canister

These ceramic canisters are the best way to keep your coffee fresh for longer, hands down. Airscape technology removes and locks out all air, preserving and protecting the flavor of their favorite beans from Christmas 'til Valentine's Day. Now that's a whole latte love!

Available now at all cafe locations and online

For the White Elephant
Fresh Perspective

Ahh, the gift exchange we all love to hate. Ask your barista which coffee to bring to the annual company party and they'll all say the same thing - you can't go wrong with a natural Ethiopian. One of our favorites on any brewing apparatus, this natural Guji makes them say, "I never knew coffee could taste like this!" Juicy strawberry and lavender are paired with a big chocolatey sweetness that'll leave the most talkative person in your office totally speechless. 

As always, 1 bag of Fresh Perspective = $1 donated to the Autism Society. So really, everyone wins here. Available online or at any Greater Goods location. 

For the Person Who Has It All
Greater Goods Classes Gift Card

Mom and Cousin Mel have two things in common: they're always busy and we have no idea what to get them this year.

We suggest the gift of education and an unforgettable experience. Just think - Cousin Mel will be raving about her latte art to all her friends at the country club. Here's how it works: you buy the pass, they choose the class based on their schedule. Now offering Intro to Roasting, Intro to Latte Art, Intro to Espresso, and most Specialty Coffee Association Certification courses. Available online only.

For the Tea Drinker
Curve Tea Cup and Infuser

We might be coffee people, but we never leave out the tea drinkers on our list. The Curve Asian Style Tea Cup and Infuser by Forlife is co-founder Khanh Trang's favorite accessory. Making the perfect cup of tea is a cup of tea in this dishwasher-safe stainless steel infuser. The Curve comes in all the colors of the rainbow and is available at our Bee Cave and East Austin locations.  

The Ultimate Stocking Stuffer
GG Instant Coffee

Say goodbye to the instant coffees of the past... This stuff is GOOD. We partnered with the best in the biz, SwiftCup, to create freeze-dried versions of two of our favorite specialty coffees. Whether they're planning a trip to Big Bend or running a bit late to work, these coffees won't disappoint. 

It's easy-peasy: just add 10oz of water and you're good to go. Each box contains six single-serving packets. Available online or at all cafe locations. 

The Totally-Worth-It Splurge
Baratza Encore Grinder

Nothing steps up your home brewing game more than a good grinder. The Baratza Encore is our barista's top choice with 40 individual grind settings from super fine to French Press coarse. It's a great investment for your home and it's a piece of cake to clean. Available online or at both cafe locations.
