How to Make the Perfect Home Coffee Station

I'm a coffee lover. I can't function without my morning latte, and a second cup (and maybe a third) is a must in the afternoon. So I set up a coffee station with all the necessary supplies right at my fingertips in my kitchen. Click through to check out the handy setup that's behind the cabinet doors.

The cabinet right above holds the coffee pods, along with my milk frothers and a variety of mugs. It's a great way to keep everything handy without having it all out on the countertop.

The machine itself is the Vertuo Chrome from Nespresso, and it is fantastic. It makes four different sizes of coffee, from espresso (my favorite) up to their brand new extra large coffee size. The cream and sugar set are the  Roulette line from Crate and Barrel, and you can get the wooden board to corral everything from Bed Bath and Beyond.

My favorite part of the whole setup is the 3-tier holder for the pods. It's actually a condiment organizer, but it's perfect for separating your different types of coffee pods. You can buy it here. To label each tier, I used a chalkboard pen. If you want to get fancy with the lettering, print out the words in your favorite font and then lay the clear plastic pieces over the printout and follow the text with your pen.

Then make sure to grab an expandable cabinet shelf to maximize your space by creating two levels. If you love lattes and cappuccinos, then a frother is a must also. The handheld one is an inexpensive one from IKEA, or you can get a Nespresso one here. 

And voilà, your coffee station is complete!
