I have a few ideas....
Thomas Hammer bin7 CoffeeThe absolute best coffee my wife and I have ever had is the bin7 blend from Thomas Hammer Coffee in Spokane, WA. It's kind of expensive, but they only sell it once a year, right after Thanksgiving, and it usually only lasts about a month or two. It comes in really nice "air release" tin. Here is the description from their website:
The description is accurate. It is a REALLY good cup of coffee.
This BIG and unique peaberry coffee boasts a balanced cup with complex layers of flavor. It offers up a citrus tartness fused with a hint of sweet chocolate, aroma of toasted cocoa and nut and a lingering, syrupy finish. Savor this one with friends -T.

Filtron Cold Brew MakerAnother favorite of mine is the Filtron Coffee Brewer. As we speak, I'm drinking a cup of coffee from our latest batch of this stuff. If you are not familiar with the cold brew method, basically, it's where you let water sit in ground coffee for a certain period of time. The end product that you drain out is extremely concentrated coffee that you add hot water to. The process of having the water sit in the ground coffee removes up to 67% of the acidity in coffee, leaving you with the smoothest coffee you've ever had. It's highly caffeinated, but it's easier on your stomach. It's pretty much the only way that my wife and I drink coffee anymore.
The brewed concentrate lasts for 5-6 weeks and stores in a container that Filtron provides. My wife and I host a lot of people at our house that drink a lot of coffee. We are able to do this fairly affordably by using the Filtron Coldbrew by purchasing the 3lb "House Blend" from Costco. It's roasted by Starbucks and it's a medium roast. It's not too bad in the Coldbrew and it's $18 for 3lbs.
This fellow demonstrates how the Filtron system works.

Toddy Cold Brew MakerA similar and less expensive system to the Filtron is the Toddy. Same process, but I think it brews less coffee than the filtron.

Capresso Infinite Conical Burr GrinderBecause we have 5 adults living in our household that all drink coffee and because we have 30-50 adults coming through our home on any given week, our Cuisinart Coffee Grinder finally bit the dust. Last month I did a ton of research on coffee grinders and found that they are not all created equal. I finally landed on the Capresso Infinitely Conical Burr Grinder. Basically what I found is that Conical Burr grinders are the best kind. They are built for the long haul and they are not near as noisy because. With our Cuisinart, people couldn't talk and hear themselves while it was going, but with this Capresso, you can totally hold a conversation while it is grinding. We paid a little about $120 for it to get the full stainless steel version, but it should last us for a very long time.

I don't know about you, but we love serving our guests great espresso drinks. We've had an older model consumer Starbucks Espresso machine for a while, but it wears out quickly when we need to make a lot of drinks. It really can't keep up. And sometimes the steamer just decides not to work. If I had the money, I would like to get my wife something like this. She's a great barista and she could do wonders with a good reliable machine. It's basically a commercial machine in a consumer package.
