Celebrate Fathers Day with coffee
Dads love their coffee. Like a lot of people its the first thing they start off with.. and getting up in the morning becomes harder and harder for Dads with age, so the coffee often ends up becoming stronger as time move on. Fathers day, for obvious reasons, is a day that Dads can sleep in a bit. This time it is up to you.. to bring the coffee.
Here are some ideas.
There are millions of Dad themed coffee mugs out there ranging from cute, slightly rude , to just plain mean. Mugs are not expensive, so this is an ideal gift, if you battle buying Dad gifts. In your Dads eyes you will have given him something for life… The Dad coffee mug is so well guarded, it almost takes on Olympic gold medal status. No one may use this cup, it is for Dad and his coffee – Alone.
Coffee making products
One of the best coffee making products around is the AreoPress. Not only does it look cool (Dads need to feel like this), but its easy to use, and makes amazing coffee.

If your dad is already a coffee guru, then adding these products to his already amazing coffee making process could only make things better (Along with the mug you bought, you’ll be in the good books for at least 1 year..)
- For the active outdoor dads – the minipresso (GR / NS)
- For the homeboy dads – Baratza Encore Grinder
- For the “out of shape Dads” – Porlex Mini Mill Hand Grinder
This is one way to kick start your Fathers Day and make something special. All dads like chocolate.
- Heat the milk on the stove, but be careful not to let it burn.
- Pour the mocha powder or hot chocolate mix into an oversized mug.
- Pour the skim milk into the mug, and quickly stir until the powder dissolves into a mocha syrup.
- When the coffee is ready, pour it into the mug with the mocha syrup and stir them together.
BOOM ! Now he is awake !
