Everyone on your list who drinks coffee, that is. Which is probably quite a few. More creative than a bottle of booze and more refreshing than another box of Frango mints, a bag of small-batch, freshly roasted beans from Dogwood Coffee Co. is this holiday season’s ace-in-the-hole gift. Formerly Bull Run Coffee, it’s the same painstakingly prepared, Clover-brewed cuppa you’ve been sipping at Rustica. It’s also a coffee shop, recently opened in Calhoun Square next to Kitchen Window. When you go, scoop up an armful of striking brown-paper bags stamped with the Dogwood logo and filled with aromatic coffee, tie each with a satin bow, and voila—you can cross your boss, your secret Santa, and every holiday-party host right off your list. As a gift to yourself, do have a perfectly steamed latte while you’re there.
