With Father’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to think about ways your coffee shop can utilise this occasion to drive up sales.
Stocking up on coffee gear to sell in-store is a brilliant way to achieve this. While everyone loves to share a coffee or two, lots of people take pleasure in the physical act of gift-giving. And for those with coffee-loving Dads, finding top-quality brewing gear they can gift will be a priority.
So instead of letting them hand over their hard-earned cash to the likes of Amazon, why not stock some industry greats, so they can not only get their Dad a brilliant gift but enjoy supporting their local coffee shop in the process.
Here we have our top products to stock in your coffee shop in preparation for Father’s Day 2022.
Manual Coffee Makers
Manual coffee makers make for great gifts, and with their smaller size, they’re perfect for displaying on your shelves for people to peruse and buy. Here are some of our favourites:
- Clever Coffee Dripper – Making delicious coffee effortless. The Clever Drippers shut-off valve design is a great talking point with customers – and for those who are tired of watching their Dad drink terrible instant – this is bound to be a winner. (almost 60% off RRP when you buy 12)
- AeroPress Go – Perfect for the person on the go this bit of kit fits into a mug and allows for the perfect black coffee to be made anytime, anywhere. Start a conversation with your customers to see if this might be something they’re after.
- Chemex - Elegant and timeless - the Chemex is perfect for those who like something a little more sophisticated. With no moving parts the Chemex will work forever – an easy sell for those who want to know their money won’t be wasted.
- Brewista Tornado Glass Dripper – This stylish dripper adds a touch of class to your pour-over brew. Drippers in general are great little bits of kit to stock in your shop. They don’t take up a lot of space on your shelves and are priced keenly for a spontaneous purchase. (50% off RRP for bulk purchases)
Manual Coffee Grinders
While you know freshly ground beans are vital when it comes to a great brew, do your customers? Passing that knowledge on and giving them an easy way to get café quality coffee at home will go a long way.
We love the Rhino Hand Grinder as a great piece of kit that also won’t break the bank – perfect as a gift. At the luxury end the Brewista X Series Hand Grinder (up to 50% off RRP ex VAT) and the Comandante C40 Mk4 Nitro Blade Grinder both offer fantastic options. Make sure you know your audience here – aim for a range to suit all budgets.
Cold Brew Kit
Father’s Day is just in time for the cold brew season - with the weather warming up people will be reaching for refreshing alternatives.
We love the Puck Puck AeroPress Cold Brew (up to a third off RRP ex VAT) which allows your customers to create fantastic tasting cold brew coffee, inexpensively, wherever they go. Designed with the AeroPress in mind this is a great add-on should a customer be considering the AeroPress or have one at home already.
And for the real deal, we love the Bruer Cold Brew System – fantastic for those wanting that slow drip method previously only found in specialty coffee shops.
Another great talking point – how customers can keep beans fresher for longer. Stock up on some of the Fellow Atmos Coffee Storage Jars so you’ve got an easy answer for those who want to give the gift of fresh, aromatic brews this Father’s Day!
Again, the Atmos jars are a nice size for stocking on your shelves and the glass jars make for a great display when filled. You can even give a little demonstration of how these work by twisting the lid back and forth to suck out the air when talking to your customers (marshmallows are great to demo this). And with a retail price of £29.99 (From 18.74 ex VAT to trade customers), there’s a healthy profit margin to be had for you.
So there you have it – some of our top recommendations for gifts to stock in your coffee shop in the run-up to Father’s Day.
