Father's Day Gift Guide 2024

It's that time of year again. It is the time when we get to show our appreciation for all the hard work dads put in as well as to help elevate their game. Maybe it's his wardrobe or a new set of golf clubs. But if the dad in your life loves coffee, then you've come to the right place. This gift guide is for the dad who has everything, the dad who needs everything, and for every coffee-loving dad in between.

These are some of the most popular choices for the dads who are just getting into home espresso or need a welcome upgrade to their current espresso bar. Whether you’re gifting a first-timer or a seasoned barista, the equipment should be a cut above the rest.  No qualifications necessary. A love for espresso is encouraged. 

LUCCA A53 Mini

The LUCCA A53 Mini embodies the term daily driver—the dependable, little workhorse who could. What’s more prized than excellent shot consistency and café quality steam pressure? Well, we’d say it’s build quality and craftsmanship. The A53 Mini has all these qualities in spades. You can even customize the kit for maple or walnut hardwoods. Many folks’ A53 Minis are still going strong 10-plus years later. We trust that consistency.

Exclusive to Clive in the US market, the Pro 600’s sleek straight-up and-down steam wand and quick steam joystick valves make crafting your favorite drinks easy. The Pro 600 is also customizable with walnut touch points and a matte panel finish. The Pro 600 is the BMW of espresso machines. 

Eureka Mignon Zero

Moving on to grinders, the Zero isn’t simply Eureka’s most affordable and well-built single-dosing grinder, but is the most affordable and well-built out of any brand currently available. Once an outlier, single-dosing is starting to become the primary way home baristas grind coffee because it is easy to switch between coffees. Even better, the Zero has an average of .2g retention, meaning that you waste less coffee, and the dosing cup and rubber bellows make for a clean countertop.

When you’re having trouble dialing in, plug in your real-time shot stats, and the grinder’s dial-in assistant will do the heavy lifting. You can store coffees and recipes in the app library and have fun tasting different coffees at your leisure. Stop blowing through bags of coffee and get the LUCCA Atom 75. Still unconvinced by the technology? Check out this blog on how we reimagined grinding with the LUCCA Atom 75.
