I don’t know about you, but before I’ve even properly opened my eyes, I need to have a cup of coffee in my hands. And if you’re a coffee lover, like me, then you need a dedicated nook for this morning ritual.
Kitchen coffee stations are becoming as popular as home bars. With all the gadgets and gizmos needed to make a delicious cup of coffee, a functional setup has become more vital than ever in a coffee lover’s kitchen. And, don’t worry – no matter the size of your space, there are ways to create a pretty and practical nook.
First, think about the way you like to enjoy your morning coffee. Do you love an espresso, a cold brew or perhaps a frothy latte with lots of foam on top? This will help you figure out how much space you need for your coffee station – a French press takes up far less space than an all-singing, all-dancing barista-style machine.
If you’ve already got a larder, why not turn it into a coffee station? The doors will easily conceal the coffee machine and all the accessories, which keeps the kitchen tidy. You can also store other items in there, too, such as a kettle and toaster to create the perfect breakfast station. If you are designing your space from scratch, make sure there are enough plugs for all your appliances.
Love a barista-style cup of coffee? Then you will need a bit more space for your pro-style coffee machine, whether it’s freestanding or built-in. Also, think about where you’d like to keep your coffee beans, grounds, pods, frothing jugs, cups, and espresso shot glasses – and, don’t forget about little things such as spoons and the espresso machine tamper and dispenser. We’ve got plenty of inspiration lined up.
Now, make sure to grab yourself a cup of coffee, and let’s start exploring these kitchen coffee station ideas…
