All of us serious coffee drinkers have our own special coffee prep rituals. On auto pilot, we can crawl and grope our way to the kitchen and make our morning cup without even being truly awake. Recently, I’ve tried to streamline this process a little bit. I wanted all of my coffee paraphernalia in one place without clutter and without fuss. Most of all I wanted it to be pretty, because of course I did. This couple really hit the mark on what a fully functional, beautiful coffee station should look like. Check these pics out!
Creating a coffee station like this one isn’t as difficult as it might look. It’s all in the details. You can use a simple baker’s cart or a chunky piece of furniture like a buffet table or an armoire. Here’s a list of things you might consider including in your own home coffee station:
- Glass or ceramic containers for storing everything from coffee and tea to flavored syrups and sweeteners
- A pretty carrying tray or low top basket to organize paper cups, lids, and napkins
- unique artwork (try chalkboard signs like the Gray House above or something like this)
- any kind of houseplant or flower vase to add a little nature
