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…
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 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.
