Decide on a location
I don’t like to keep many appliances on my countertops so I opted to create my coffee bar at our dining room buffet. I needed a space that was pretty wide to store my coffee maker and supplies. The first thing I did was brainstorm what I absolutely had to have at the coffee bar to make it functional and then I started figuring out how to store it in a way that didn’t look cluttered.
Choose your storage
I wanted everything to be pretty visible at my coffee bar just like it would be at a hotel so I used labeled glass containers. I used these Ball wide mouth jars to store extra coffee and sugar. These clear glass bottles with stoppers are perfect for extra water for my coffee maker. A metal letter sorter was the perfect size to keep my coffee packets neat while white platters were a simple place to corral mugs and k-cups.
Stocking your coffee bar
I want everything I need for a cup of coffee, hot cocoa or tea without having to go to the kitchen so I stocked my coffee bar with some of my favorite white and gold mugs. I also keep these 10oz glass mugs and 15oz glass mugs at my coffee bar for my husband and kids.
Make it user-friendly
The last thing I wanted to do is make my coffee bar user-friendly for my family and guest. To do that, I printed out instructions for brewing a cup of Caffe Latte using the Keurig 575 Programable coffee maker. Having the instructions printed in a pretty frame is super helpful.
