Joco Reusable Glass Coffee Cup

The Joco Reusable Glass Coffee Cup makes my vegan gift guides every year for a couple of reasons. First, I own one and love it. Secondly, over 500 billion disposable paper, Styrofoam and single-use plastic cups are used worldwide and this figure is rapidly rising each year.

That’s a lot of cups.

Disposable cups deplete natural resources, increase C02 emissions and most are sent straight to landfill where they add to the global waste crises. Use a reusable cup for your morning brew and help cut waste.


  • Eco-friendly Cup Made from High-Grade Borosilicate Glass
  • Glass Reusable Cup With Thermal Silicone Sleeve
  • Anti-Splash Ergonomic Silicone Lid Designed For Easy Travel With Your JOCO Cup
  • A Range Of Barista Sizing – 16oz, 12oz, 8oz Glass Reusable Coffee Cups
  • An Eco-Friendly Glass Cup That Is BPA Free & Food Safe

Birds & Beans Holiday Special

There is a dark side to coffee, one that impacts birds like warblers, orioles, tanagers, wood thrushes, hummingbirds, and other birds who migrate thousands of miles to Latin America for the winter. Coffee farming practices around the globe have eliminated critical habitat for migratory birds and other free-living animals.

The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center has developed the only 100% organic and shade-grown coffee certification available: Bird Friendly. This means that you are not only getting organically produced coffee, but it also ensures tropical “agroforests” are preserved and migratory birds are able to have a safe haven when migrating to those faraway farms.

Every bean sold by Birds & Beans is certified by independent inspectors to meet the rigorous Smithsonian standards. This is a certification based on decades of objective scientific research. Bird Friendly coffee means that migratory songbirds have a better chance to survive while on their wintering grounds in the tropics.

I’ve had the immense pleasure of brewing and drinking the Wood Thrush Breakfast Roast Coffee and can tell you, it’s fantastic. Plus, it’s organic and Fair Trade. That’s what coffee should be.

The Birds & Beans Holiday Gift Set includes:

  • Two (2) 12 oz bags Wood Thrush Breakfast Roast Coffee
  • Two (2) 12 oz bags American Redstart Light Roast Coffee
  • Three (3) 12 oz bags Scarlet Tanager French Roast Coffee
  • Three (3) 12 oz bags Chestnut-sided Warbler Medium Roast Coffee
  • Two (2) 12 oz bags Baltimore Oriole French Roast DeCafe Coffee

(Birds & Beans, $120.00)

Ekobrew Universal Single Cup Brewer

Can we all agree that single-serve coffee pods are bad for the environment? It’s estimated that over 5 billion of these single-serving pods will be sold, used, and then discarded by consumers this year alone. Most of these are non-biodegradable plastic and foil, and will eventually end up in landfills.

This Ekobrew Classic Reusable Filter solves the carbon footprint problem, plus it lowers your cost for single serving pods.


  • 100% BPA free
  • One-piece construction with reinforced hinges
  • Micro-screen and perforated laser base for clean extractions

(Amazon, $6.96)

Coffee Gator Stainless Steel French Press

For years I’ve recommended coffee lovers purchase their own french press. I use one myself, and truly believe they make a better cup of coffee. In the past, I have always used a glass french press, but all of that changed the last time I dropped it on my kitchen floor and broke it. That was it for me. I have broken three glass french presses over the years and I was looking for a replacement that would; make great-tasting coffee, keep it hot, and not break. I found all of that in the Coffee Gator Stainless Steel French Press.
