Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

For much of my adult life, I did not drink coffee.  Not a single, solitary drop.

Nope, I was just not that “into the brew.”
 

I know right?  Not drink coffee?  Who doesn’t drink coffee?  Well, I guess that was me.

 
 I was always an iced-tea kinda gal.  Yes, even first thing in the morning.  I didn’t drink wine, either.

Oh sorry, excuse me while I contain my laughter.

Then, two things in my life happened.  I entered my 30’s, and we moved to Europe.

I sure have made up for all those years of being a non coffee/wine consumer.

I would drink a Coffee Wine if they made it.  🙂

While I am not one of “these” coffee drinkers…

I won’t lie…
I have two dear friends who inspired me to create a Coffee Station.  Kathysue at Good Life of Design created a wonderful coffee station in her kitchen.

Her area is similar in size to mine. Kathysue, for the record, is enjoying two wonderful weeks in Paris and France as I speak.

Talk about some good coffee.  Yum!  
 
I love her tray!

Another good friend, Shirley at Housepitality Designs has a dedicated area in her Butler’s Pantry.

Shirley just may be a bean away from the “sweet kitty” above.  haha

 
Isn’t her coffee area “aweshum!”
(as my 3-yr old grandlove says)

Here are some coffee stations I found on Pinterest… you can visit my CoffeeBoard!


Our coffee maker used to be located in our English Pub Bar area, but I wanted it back by the kitchen sink.   There is just something about walking into the kitchen to get your morning grind.
So I decided to create a mini-station.

We have a Cuisinart coffeemaker, which uses the Keurig K-cups.

I added a simple white tray to hold the K-cups, and smaller, lidded-glass containers for sweetener and my green tea bags.

 I had The Hubbs cut me a small piece of wood for the bottom which I painted with chalkboard paint.  I think this will be a great way to let guests know the different types of coffees I have available.

I also had fun creating a custom set of numbered coffee mugs.  Dollar Store mugs were perfect.

30 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees, and the design is now permanent.

I can’t wait to try this out again on some other projects.

I have one more container to add, and that will be filled with my biscotti.  

(I am not supposed to have this, so let’s keep it a secret, shall we?)

I love waking up in the morning and this little spot in my kitchen is waiting for me.

 I just bought a new Italian blend and some Chocolate Almond Biscotti.

Excuse me while I go “Converse with the Cuisinart.” 🙂

Thanks for letting me share my new coffee station with you.
