Let’s face it, what coffee fan wouldn’t love a coffee bar in the comfort of their own home? A full station dedicated just to make your favorite brew is any coffee lover’s dream and will make you the envy of your friends and family.
So now that your interest is piqued, the question is where do you start? There are so many different ideas to choose from depending on your taste and your budget. Looking online will definitely help to give you some inspiration and ideas for what you are looking for and even some building instructions if you have some talent for that.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself when beginning your quest to create the perfect coffee bar.
What is your budget?
The first thing you should figure out is how much you are willing and able to spend on the project. That way you will know more what to look for and won’t end up running yourself short needlessly. There are many options out there that are budget-friendly such as looking for second-hand items or looking in your local dollar or discount store.
Where should you put your coffee bar?
You can put your coffee bar anywhere you have space and would like it because, of course, it’s your coffee bar! One can be set up in your kitchen, living room or even your bedroom for those of you who don’t want to travel far in the morning for their first cup.
Do I want to use an existing counter, buy a cart or build my own?
Maybe you already have extra counter space in your kitchen that would be perfect for a coffee bar but if not there are many other options out there. You can purchase a new cart or counter or repurpose a piece that you already own. An armoire that you are no longer using would make a great coffee bar or if you have the talent to build your own. Get in touch with your creative side and who knows what you could come up with.
What type of coffee machines am I looking to have?
One of the most important decisions is what you will be using to make your coffee. Do you want to have the ability to make specialty coffee drinks like lattes and cappuccinos? If so, an all-in-one machine like the Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker would be a good choice for you.
What will I want for accessories?
There are so many different ideas when it comes to picking out accessories for your home coffee bar. Everything from the style and color of the cups to adding extras like cute signs and artwork. Maybe you will want to have a cute bistro table to sit at and enjoy your coffee or a cozy nook to curl up with a good book.
That is the great thing about creating your own coffee bar. You can make it to completely suit your style and taste and a place you can enjoy any time you want.
