If you're someone who can't function without caffeine in the morning, we think a coffee advent calendar for adults is the perfect treat for you. Each morning of December leading up to Christmas Day, you'll get to try a different kind of coffee including ground coffee, capsules, instant and whole bean, depending on how you like your cuppa to be prepared.

They're a great idea if you're keen to try some different types of coffee, but don't want to commit to buying a whole bag of beans. They're also a fun gift idea for friends, co-workers, in-laws and any caffeine lover in your life, and make a change from your usual chocolate or beauty advent calendar.

We've rounded up some of the best coffee advent calendars available to buy right now to help you find the right one for you.

Best for coffee pod fans

Dedicating 24 days to the magic of coffee, this special coffee pod collection from M&S contains a surprise range of their Nespresso compatible pods, perfect for your morning cuppa. Each day you'll open a window to discover one of the easy-to-use coffee pods, featuring a range of their most loved coffee blends.

Best for ground coffee fans

We love the stylish design of this advent calendar - they'll look lovely on any kitchen side this Christmas. Inside you'll find 25 individually packed 25g sachets of coffee grounds in air-tight bags. Each bag comes with a detailed coffee card so you can read more about each blend while you're making it. You'll also be pleased to know every part of the packaging is fully recyclable.

For tea lovers, we'd recommend the English Tea Shop Advent Calendar. For hot chocolate lovers, we'd recommend the Whittard Hot Chocolate Advent Calendar for Two.
