Is your student going off the college? Does coffee go alongside her avocado toast or breakfast granola bowl in the morning? Are you wondering what you can do as a mom to help make the transition feel more like home for your first-time college student?

One way to make your college student feel at home in the new dorm room is a thoughtful gift. The Melitta Pour Over Coffee Maker is a functional reminder to your student of what counts at college: being awake and ready for class! What Augusta Family likes like best about the Melitta Pour Over is its clean ceramic sheen in pastel pink and the easy style of the small-batch brew. Just add hot water to coffee grounds in the filter, and, voilà, a quick beverage providing energy and focus for freshman math. Whether the 20 oz. serving is the most effective way to open your child’s morning eyes or the perfect afternoon pick up for study sessions with friends, this retro ceramic pour over is a fresh gift for your college student.

Additional colors include metallic gun metal, pastel blue, matte red, white, titan clear and translucent red.
