Essential Items for a Well-Designed Coffee Station:

Upgrade to Professional

Elevate your brew with a professional-grade coffee maker, and here’s the game-changer – opt for a plumbed machine. Enjoy a continuous water supply without the hassle of constant refilling. It’s our own secret weapon at our home. Some days, the coffee is brewing until about 5:00 (when it’s time to switch to a cocktail). On those days, it’s so convenient to have a plumbed machine. Ours is the Keurig commercial plumbed coffee machine for a small office.

Designer tip: When we renovated I made sure to have the plumbing and electrical outlet in the middle of this space so the machine would hide them.

Style It Up

Now, let’s talk interior design. Infuse your coffee bar with charm and blend in some pretty decor made of metal, crystal, ceramic, whatever will make it Yours. Be sure to add art if you have room for it. Embrace the “cafe chalkboard” aesthetic and consider unique “coffee bar styling” elements. Remember, it’s not just a corner; it’s your canvas. You can go modern, traditional, coastal, zen…what’s your “flavor”?

The coffee artwork, the designer ceramics (thank you, Tatiana!), the shell spoon, the shell bowl, the large beads – all these accessories style up this coffee bar beautifully.

I’m a 2 cuppa in the morning, then in the afternoon I switch to iced coffee (it’s those Rhode Island roots!) with flavors. I’m loving Jordan’s Skinny Mixes.

As a kid, I grew up drinking coffee milk – coffee flavor syrup in milk. Yum!

The Budget-Friendly Option

It’s time to reconsider your daily coffee indulgence as retail shop expenses steadily increase. These days, I’d pay about $7 for a venti flavored latte at Starbucks. Here’s a money-saving suggestion: for the same price, get a massive bottle of flavored syrup that will last for months. You will not only save money, but you will also be able to tailor your brew perfectly.
