Creating a designated space for a coffee and tea station can add a touch of elegance to your routine. With some pretty organization and great products, you and your guests can help themselves to start the morning off right!
We bought an electric tea kettle for our son-in-law as a gift and liked it so much we bought one for ourselves. Adding it to our coffee bar (along with herbal and decaf teas) makes it a spot we use throughout the day.
Creating A Coffee & Tea Station At Home
Choosing the Right Location
Consider selecting a strategic location for your coffee and tea bar, preferably in an area with a countertop you can easily access and is not too close to the working areas.
Selecting Quality Drink Machines
Invest in a quality coffee maker like Nespresso for your coffee station. We have Nespresso Vertuo Coffee Maker & Espresso Machine by Breville with Aeroccino (milk frother).
“Meet the first-ever Nespresso machine to brew both true American coffee and authentic Italian espresso. It relies on patented Centrifusion™ technology for state-of-the-art brewing. Just pop in a Nespresso capsule – the VertuoLine machine scans the capsule’s bar code, then automatically custom-brews the ultimate cup of coffee or espresso.”
You could spend more on a fancier coffee machine but this coffee is delicious.
The Smeg electric tea kettle heats water quickly and has an auto shutoff when ready. A variety of high-quality teas and coffees can turn your bar into a mini cafe! The clean lines of the kettle add to the decor.
Opt for storage solutions that keep your tea and coffee supplies handy. These small vintage looking canister from Amazon are nice. They were only around $20 for all three. I keep the decaf coffee and teas in them and the sugar stays airtight.
Incidentally, one of my favorites: Organic Sweet & Spicy Herbal Caffeine Free Good Earth. Have you tried it?
Also have a drawer below that holds an assortment of coffee and tea tins along with cocktail napkins, wine openers and other accessories in wire baskets.
Cups and Mugs
There is an extra refrigerator around the corner for the milks and creamer.
Try to keep things uncluttered but enhance the charm of your coffee and tea bar with thoughtful touches. The vintage spoons were found at flea markets. The ceramic Rue Madame mug was bought in Paris at Marin Montagut. The brown lump sugar cubes are cool from Amazon.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Dark Squares With Sea Salt And Almonds were served with espresso and herbal tea after a recent dinner party.
To sum it up… A charming coffee and tea bar setup is not just about functionality; it’s an opportunity to infuse your personal style into your daily morning routine. Cheers to creating memorable moments in the heart of your home!
