WACACO Nanopresso Portable Espresso Maker ($69.90)

If Dad likes his coffee just so, this travel espresso maker will make a great gift. It’s small enough for travel, so it’s perfect for the campsite, a hotel, or the office, and it only requires hot water and ground coffee. The device is hand-powered, applying up to 18 bars (261 PSI) of pressure for superior coffee extraction. And if he prefers Nespresso pods, there’s an attachment you can purchase for that!
