Coffee gifts? Don’t mind if I do. Give, I mean.

I admit it. I used to settle for a cup of coffee from just about anywhere, then quickly douse it with milk and sweetener. Then I had a proper cup of joe, which was like the pigeon describing a hot dog to the duck in Mo Willem’s beloved The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog: “They are a taste sensation. Each morsel is a joy!”

Thanks to this new monthly coffee subscription service that’s all about coffee, that joy is now yours to give to others.

Purchase a gift subscription to Tonx–I suggest getting the fresh whole beans to keep it fresher longer. The beans are all chosen by people who live, eat, and breathe coffee. They come from a long line of coffee experts and they are passionate about their beans. They build relationships with their growers so their roasts are far from anonymous.

What I really dig is the attention to detail that Tonx rocks. The packages are meticulously packed (the box has a real gift feel, which I totally love). Each bag is vacuum sealed and comes with a description of the pick as well as information on the grower.

Costwise, it’s not the same as a can of Folger’s from the supermarket, but you will certainly be saving money if you are a daily cafe patron.

The only problem? Your giftee may make the neighborhood cafe baristas sad when she stops showing up all the time. -Eva

    The gift bag set sounds awesome but I can’t find it anywhere on their site. Maybe it was a limited quantity?

    Craft Coffee also does this for gift subscriptions. My husband loved it last year for Christmas.

    Just checked with Tonx. They are all sold out of the gift sets. :(
    Get the beans, though! They are divine.
