Going to a little coffee shop for your morning cup of joe sounds like a fun activity if it’s not too far from your house. However, when it is too far to walk, the best idea is to create your very own coffee station right in your home!
Having a home brewing station in your kitchen—or somewhere else in the house—is a great alternative to the problem above.
This way, you are in charge of your coffee — when you can have it and when you can’t. You’ll know what you put in the coffee, the number of ingredients and everything. That sounds pretty awesome, right?
But what makes for an organised coffee station?
Here are 5 tips to get you headed in the right direction!
5 Tips for a More Organised Coffee Station
#1 Coffee Mugs are a Must — and Display Them Proudly
Keep your gorgeous mugs out and make it easy for anyone to help themselves at the coffee station. My friends love to come over and pick a coffee mug that fits them perfectly for the day.
There are different options for displaying your mugs. You can opt for shelves on the wall, a stand where the cups hang, a hanging wall rack and more.
Here is a couple that really struck our fancy.
I love that this coffee station uses an industrial metal basket with a hanging bar for the mugs. The metal’s rustic colour matches with the pallet used for the top shelf.
The metal basket is perfect for storing extra coffee mugs and holders — or your extra packs from your Blue Coffee Box.
I love how this coffee bar uses pops of colour to draw everything together. Coffee cups can be stored on one of the shelves — and this would also be a great place to store those airtight coffee containers.
#2 Store Coffee and Other Unsightly Gadgets in the Cabinet
If you have a lot of coffee gadgets like spoons, sugar bowls, creamer jars, grinders, filters, etc., the best thing to do is to store them away in the cabinets.
These are all neatly tucked away but still easily accessible.
Both of these options give you a great idea for places to store those coffee gadgets. This coffee station is located in a multipurpose cabinet, so you have one giant station for coffee and basically any kind of drink.
#3 Trays Make All the Difference in the World
One thing that I think makes a coffee bar really pop is when you utilise those adorable trays that can carry cups, creamer, sugar, milk and more.

Using trays to store cups or add a little decoration can really help your coffee bar fill a bit more organised. Not only that but if you are working with smaller spaces, then trays are your friend.
They keep items looking neat and tidy and you will be able to keep like-minded items together..
#4 Baskets and Smaller Containers Can Help With Storage
Using baskets and drawers for storage of coffees, tea bags, spoons and more will really open up some space on your coffee station. Some of my favourites are the chicken wire baskets and the cloth covered baskets.
Those baskets can really add a lot of flair to those coffee bars!
#5 Simple is Best
I am learning this more and more here lately (take it from the lady that did have 42 coffee mugs!) Sometimes the best thing you can do is to simplify your coffee bar.
Just a few cups, a place to put your pot or Aeropress and a cute sign are all you really need to make your coffee bar more organised and perfect for your home.
And the last step is to invite some friends over to enjoy some coffee with you! Now that you have your coffee bar all organised (and stocked with that delicious coffee from your Blue Coffee Box), you are definitely ready to entertain some of your closest friends and maybe even a co-worker or two!
