Bundled up for the holidays: Gifts for coffee lovers

• By lisapratt • Brewing, Community

This year, BC Buy Local Week runs from November 28 to December 4, but we wanted to give you a head start on the holidays. We’ve bundled up our limited-edition Celebration Blend with some of our favourite coffee gear to make local gift-giving for coffee lovers easier than ever.

A Truly West Coast Holiday

On this coast, we drink it all in. Boldly declare your Truly West Coast spirit wherever you go with our signature ceramic mug. Tuck it into your backpack for a cup of jo on the road, or enjoy it at home as a reminder of the good times you’ve had and the adventures still to come.

The Aeropress Coffee Kit

Perfect for travelers, experimenters and time-strapped coffee lovers, the Aeropress coffeemaker combines immersion and pressure to deliver a freshly brewed cup of coffee in under two minutes. Invented by Alan Adler, the man behind the Aerobie flying ring, this portable single-serving device works a bit like a French press—but without the sediment.

Art of ChemexThe Art of Chemex

Part pour-over, part French press, the Chemex coffeemaker works well for multi-cup brewing, producing a coffee that’s clean and intensely flavoured. Invented by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm in 1941, this elegant brewing device not only brews great coffee, but looks good doing it. You’ll find the Chemex in heavy rotation on Instagram and on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.

Hario HolidayThe Hario Holiday

Great for brewing one cup of coffee at a time, the Hario V60 coffee dripper is a favourite of third-wave cafés around the world. Key features, including the angle of the cone, the ribbing on the sides and the large hole at the bottom, help produce a clean, complex brew. Best of all, this simple device fits directly on top of most standard mugs—travel mugs too!—making it the perfect companion for serious home brewers.

Why buy local?

It’s simple math. For every $100 you spend with a BC business, $46 is re-circulated back into the BC economy. Spend that same $100 with a multinational company and just $18 is re-circulated. That’s because local business owners live and provide jobs in your community. They support local events, sports teams and charities, and they’re more likely to buy local services and stock local products. Where you buy your holiday gifts has major ripple effects!

What is #BCbuylocal?

Now in its 5th year, BC Buy Local Week is an annual celebration of BC-based businesses that helps put a spotlight on all the great food, drink, products and services available right in our backyards. It was started by our good friends at LOCO BC, a non-profit alliance that works to strengthen our communities, grow the local economy and build strong, sustainable businesses. It’s no secret we’re fans—we proudly support LOCO BC’s work through our 1% for the Planet program.
