1.Kalita Wave Tsubame Dripper Stainless/Copper
These fabulously shiny beauties are the best ways to start this joyful list of gift ideas - Kalita Wave in stainless and in copper.
Kalita created these drippers in collaboration with “Made in Tsubame”, a brand and engraved mark that is given only to products that pass the conditions set by the Tsubame Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
This new dripper is completely handmade by the qualified craftsmen of Tsubame-shi, a well-known district in Niigata prefecture for its metalworking craftsmen and their techniques.
Produced with Kalita’s traditional three-hole structure with a flat bottom designed to extract evenly accommodating all brewers. Together with the wave filters, it enables anyone to brew a consistent flavor.
2. PORLEX Grinder Tall/Mini
The best gifts comes in the smallest boxes. This compact, minimalistic grinder is ideal for the coffee lover on the move, and will never disappoint you wherever you are. It makes a perfect gift for someone who travels a lot, who loves to keep things simple, and of course even for yourself.
THREE REASONS TO LOVE THIS:
<Ceramic blade will not affect the taste, and it is long-lasting.>

<Easy grind adjustment>
You can adjust the grind just by dialing, getting optimal results with a perfect grind.
<Easy to carry>
The compact design matches your on the go needs. With JAPAN PORLEX official Handle Holder, you can comfortably take your PORLEX anywhere.
