Little Italy Coffee Beans

Toronto Gift Guide: Little Italy coffee beans

It's day number eleven of my quest to find some of the best gifts in Toronto. Today's pick: Niche CafĂŠ coffee beans. Niche's own line of premium whole coffee beans, sold in pound-sized red-foil bags, can also be ground upon request. Each blend, including Beaches Swiss Water Decaf and Toronto Island Certified Organic & Fair Trade, is themed to a different Toronto neighbourhood.

I'm a sucker for packaging and cute themes. I picked up a bag of Little Italy Espresso as a gift, and was pleased to discover that my bean purchase comes with a little extra - a Niche espresso beverage to go. I can safely say that the best part of this gift is not the cute-factor. Niche roasts a mean bean!

Additional specs: Also available in larger sizes

Best for: Eco-conscious commuters who opt for home-brew in a travel mug over a paper take-out cup

What it'll cost you: $15.00-$17.00 depending on variety
