Creative Ideas for Coffee & Beverage Stations

No matter the footprint of your home, if you are a coffee and/or tea lover, there are many benefits to being your own at-home barista. There is no standing in long lines or waiting in the drive-thru. Your morning can be less rushed, and your quiet time is all your own. Instead of standing in a coffee shop staring at a menu trying to decipher drink names and what’s in them, you can take your time in your kitchen, conveniently stocked with your favorite brewed beverages and flavors, deciding what you’re in the mood for.

While the initial investment in an at-home coffee station may seem substantial, the potential for long-term cost savings is significant when compared to the daily expense of visiting a high-priced coffee shop.

And if your work office is at home, why shouldn’t the coffee shop be at home too?
