For the java fan on your list, Lokoly Coffee Club’s new “Tour of Iowa” gift box might be the boldest gift of all this holiday season.

Lokoly packaged this collection of hard-to-find Iowa coffees from roasters you likely haven’t heard of. (They’re from Ames, West Union, Fort Madison and Tama.) As part of the gift box, which retails for $89.99, you’ll receive four blends of either whole bean or ground coffee, a “Layers of Iowa” mug from Bozz Prints in West Des Moines, and two coffee club coasters. Plus, $5 of each purchase benefits the Food Bank of Iowa.

The light to medium blends include Swed & Co. Coffee’s Ethiopian Yirgacheffe (it’s thought to be the birthplace of the magic beans) and Jack’s Feed Store Blend, a medium roast with chocolatey, earthy and rustic notes from Ross Street Roasting in Tama.

Shop the site for other gift box options—including a coffee club membership and Midwest-based gift pack.
