Gone are the days when it was hard to shop for someone who was labeled "the person who has everything." Nowadays, with so many gadgets in existence, it's just too unlikely. Sure, your hard-to-shop-for targets may have a quesadilla maker, but one of those and a doughnut hole maker? Probably not. And if they do, well, there are a million other kitchen-related gadgets and accessories that may not be so common. So with the "person who has everything" dwindling away to a statistical improbability, what's a shopper to do? Luckily, we have enthusiasts to help us out.

Enthusiasts come in all shapes and sizes for all manner of stuff. What they all have in common, however, is a deep well from which to focus their attentions on. When it comes to coffee enthusiasts, they may have the exact perfectly tuned system for brewing their cup of joe, but they may not have yet conquered the grinder.

The Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder ($199.99) is a precise coffee grinder made for enthusiasts. Operating with conical burr grinders to minimize flavor loss because of heat, the 15.5-inch-tall appliance makes for an impressive display. With a deep feature set that is capable of 25 different grind settings, the coffee-related appliance is capable of automatically adjusting the amount of ground coffee each time the setting is changed. The machine comes complete with a handsome backlit LCD screen and a wide area base that allows for hands-free grinding directly into a portafilter, the grinds container, or a paper drip coffee filter basket.

And if the person who has doesn't have everything has everything coffee related? Well there is one standard gift that is guaranteed to appeal to the coffee drinker: the coffee mug.
