Are you obsessed with coffee? Going out and buying your favorite coffee isn’t always the most cost-effective option. Click through to see how to build a perfect coffee bar so you can enjoy that premium experience at home.

 

For many people, coffee is an essential part of their day. It gets them up and gets them moving. But shelling out money for coffee at your local shop every day can add up quickly. For that kind of investment, you can make coffee right at home in your own coffee bar. Here’s everything you need to build a perfect coffee bar in your kitchen.

Identify the Right Space

The first step is to find the right place to set up your coffee bar. Kitchen space is always at a premium, so if there’s an out-of-the-way corner that can’t be used for anything else, it could be the perfect location. Keep in mind, there isn’t a bad spot for your new coffee bar as long as it’s accessible.

Build or Buy a Coffee Cart

Once you identify where you can put the bar, you need a place to store and use it. The sky’s the limit when making this decision. You can repurpose old furniture for the space by painting a dresser or cabinet. Or you can buy a bar cart, kitchen cart or shelves. If you’re feeling creative, you can build your own coffee cart.

Consider Your Equipment

Next, consider how you want to make your coffee. Some people like the convenience of single-cup pod coffee makers. Others want a more barista-like experience with a professional espresso machine. A drip coffee maker is perfectly fine, if that’s what you like. Whatever the case, invest in the coffee equipment that matches your specific tastes.

Punch It Up with Décor

Your coffee bar doesn’t have to be bare. The fun part is adding your personal touches. Some ideas include a coffee bar sign on the wall, cups and saucers on shelves or decorative touches that will help you start your morning with a smile.
