Check out these Foodie Gifts for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is June 19th. Have you gotten your father a present yet?  Have no fear, because we have a guide with foodie gifts for every dad on your list! From the coffee lover to the cheese lover, there’s something for everyone!

Foodie Gifts for the Coffee Lover:
The Morning Dram Coffee is a company whose tagline is “Coffee for the spirits drinker.” The Morning Dram was created by Tommy Tardie. He has years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry. According to The Morning Dram website, The Flatiron Room (one of the venues Tardie owns) was awarded “2021 Best Whisky Bar in America” by Whisky Magazine. He knows his spirits!

The Morning Dram creates specialty coffee, specifically Bourbon, Rye and Sherry Barrel Aged Coffee. They have several gift options that would make great Father’s Day gifts. They have a subscription option, where you can have 3 bags of coffee sent for one month, 3 months or 6 months.  Dad will never have to worry about running out of coffee!

They also sell box sets. The most popular being the Morning Dram Starter Kit. This set includes everything dad will need to make a delicious cup of coffee. It includes one bag of bourbon barrel-aged coffee, one bag of rye barrel-aged coffee and one bag of House Blend No.1 (not barrel-aged) coffee. It also includes a stainless steel dripper (no paper filter needed), an enamel camp mug and a handheld burr grinder for $99.00. All of the coffee comes as whole beans, so that grinder is very handy!

The coffee beans are sourced from Colombia, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. None of the coffee contains alcohol. The beans get their flavor from sitting in the emptied spirits barrels. No extra flavoring has been added. I was able to sample The Morning Dram coffee and can say this is a bold, flavorful coffee.  I am amazed by how much unique flavor the beans get from being barrel-aged!

Tardie combines his love of spirits and coffee in an Espresso Martini cocktail that he serves 3 ways at The Flatiron Room. Dad can enjoy this cocktail at home using the The Morning Dram Rye Barrel Aged Coffee in the recipe below.

The Morning Dram Cocktail: Espresso Martini 

1.5 oz Reyka Vodka
