As coffee bar ideas go, this is a very smart one. The blogger wanted her own coffee central but there wasn’t much room in her small apartment. Then inspiration struck and this corner bakers rack was turned into a java station.

Yes, makers as in plural. I’ve noticed that on many coffee stations, folks have multiple appliances. I’m one of them, too. I have my regular, programmable pot (gotta have the coffee ready first thing in the morning. And then my Keurig on the other corner for later in the day and other beverages, such as hot coco.

White canister sets are another important design element for coffee bars. Instead of words, the three above use numbers so you can add anything you want into them.
19 – Don’t Forget to Get Some New Coffee Mugs?
There’s never a shortage of coffee mugs and you have your choice of style. Plain. White. Colors. Images. And words. But when it comes to my coffee mugs, I sort of partial to diner-style mugs like these above (or vintage Buffalo mugs if I can find them). But if you like colors, this, there are a lot of other choices. About nine, in fact.
As I’ve been researching, I see Rae Dunn showing up in a lot of coffee station pics. They’re simple with just one or two words. You can take a look at the selection at Amazon right here.

22 – Wrapping Up this Coffee Station Ideas Post with a Question
I love using my Keurig coffee machine, but the pods are soooo expensive. Elaine at Sunny Simple Life turned me onto her frugal Keurig coffee solution. She buys San Francisco Bay coffee from Amazon and saves a ton of money. It works out to about 0.39 a pod (or less if you do the “subscribe”). And it’s good-tasting coffee.
