Most people can’t start their morning without at least one cup of coffee (or four). If you’re like me, before feeding the cat, checking emails, or doing anything relatively productive, you need coffee in hand. Two creams, no sugar, please!
We all know that daily trips to Starbucks for that cuppa joe can be both inconvenient and expensive. Also, with everyone staying indoors lately, it makes it a lot harder to get to your favorite coffee shop.
Don’t let this pandemic get you down and stop you from getting your daily fix! You can still have a wonderful coffee bar experience – just consider making your own DIY coffee bar at home.
This is a super fun way to have your favorite coffee brew from the comfort of your own home. Plus, even better – you can customize your coffee bar to suit your lifestyle and home decor.

Whichever person you are, we are here to help. We’ll show you everything you need to know (and own) to have your very own Starbucks coffee bar at home.
Check Out These 6 Tips On Creating Your Own Coffee Bar At Home:
Tip #1: Picking The Perfect Spot
It’s super important to choose a spot that has enough room for all your essentials. Otherwise, it will just be a knocked-over coffee cup disaster waiting to happen. It’s also helpful to choose a space near the sink and trash to make cleaning and filling up more convenient.
Also, this goes without saying – you’ll want an electrical outlet nearby to plug in your coffee appliances – like this one.
Tip #2: Stock It
Keep your coffee bar stocked with tea, hot chocolate, chocolate milk, espresso, coffee beans, ground coffee, etc. This might seem excessive but trust me, it makes it easier to grab and prepare any drink your heart desires.
Tip #3: Offer An Assortment Of Flavorings
If you truly want that Starbucks coffee experience, offer an assortment of coffee syrups. We all love our caramel or vanilla-flavored hot drinks!
Tip #4: Keep It Organized
To keep all your coffee things tidy and organized in your space, pick up a makeup organizer or storage tray.
Tip #5: Share Some Treats
When you have friends and family coming over, stock up on tasty treats that compliment that delicious cup of coffee. (or tea!) Find a tray or serving platter and fill it with cookies, muffins, scones, or biscotti. No doubt everyone will be over at your place for their daily coffee fix!
Tip #6: Make It Your Own
The last final touch on any at-home coffee bar is a few decorative pieces. This could be anything that reflects your style and suits your living space. Many people love to create a unique coffee menu like this! Honestly, there is no limit when it comes to personalizing your coffee bar.
