Here’s a gift which is bound to please any coffee quaffer while showing solidarity to the global sisterhood.
This is almost a kilo of blended 100% organic, fairtrade coffee beans grown by co-operatives from Latin America and Africa. The medium roast blend has honeyed apricot and almond notes that makes for a tasty cup and comes in at a great price for such a large stash of quality beans.Figuratively the coffee will not leave a bad taste in the mouth either. Equal Exchange have sourced their beans from groups of working female farmers in a bid to provide them with a stable source of income and means to access further training.
The profits made from the majority of fair trade coffee round the globe tend to be kept by men – even when women are integral to its production. This coffee is a means to address that and will send a positive message both to Mum and to women in the developing world.
Mother’s Day falls just 11 days after the first day of spring. With warmer weather incoming – why not get your coffee-mad mum a pitcher for making delicious cold-brew coffee?
Cold-brew is much less acidic and bitter than normal coffee and this pitcher from Hydracy makes whipping up a batch a doddle. Simply fill the central mesh basket with ground coffee, fill with water and bang it in the fridge overnight!
The unit looks great and has a spill proof lid and easy-pour spout. It’s also nice and slender so won’t take up too much space in your fridge door.

Mushroom coffee is all the rage these days and could be a great gift for any mums looking to outperform their peers. Mushroom coffee has been dubbed a ‘nootropic’, which is a substance that boosts cognitive performance.
Four Sigmatic are one of the leading nootropic brands and love waxing lyrical about the purported benefits of the drink. There is definitely a lot of scientific research into nootropics at the moment – and there is a huge body of anecdotal evidence behind Lion’s Mane mushroom coffee.
Here is a pack of 20 instant coffee sachets made from Arabica coffee, Lion’s Mane mushroom, Chaga mushroom and wild Rhodiola root.
Rhodiola is said to boost endurance and reduces stress, Chaga is known to slow ageing and support the immune system while Lion’s Mane mushroom has been proven to boost memory. In recent years coffee fans have been skipping their morning Joe in favour of mushroom coffee like this, claiming it gives them a cognitive and creative boost at work.
It tastes and smells like an earthy cup of coffee and you can add milk or sugar if you are that way inclined. It does give you a nice buzz and helps you focus and you don’t end up crashing mid-morning like when drinking normal coffee.
We’re all looking for ways to improve our day – why not let mum give this a try!
