What You Need For An Amazing At-Home Coffee Bar
Coffee bars are officially my new home project obsession– and when the starbucks line is too long, and you can’t afford to pay $5.00 for you favorite mocha everyday, twice a day, a coffee bar is exactly the thing you need in your life (and home.) These stations can come in all sizes, contain all kinds of machinery, and can even be created in spaces outside of your kitchen like the living room or dining room.
So for those who are overwhelmed by the idea of manifesting and affording an at-home coffee oasis, I have gathered a list of everything you could possibly want and need for your new project; I’ve found the best bang for your buck, as well as a splurge-worthy option for those who are serious about investing in their home’s coffee future. So, let’s do this thing!
Table or Cart
If you have enough counter space in your kitchen (meaning, enough to spare a section for a coffee bar), you’re in luck! If not, these are some of my favorite options you can pick up from Target.
Keurig Coffee Maker
Ah, Keurig, how I love you. You’ve made my mornings SO much easier! If you’re in a pinch for space, the Keurig mini is perfect (and comes in really cute colors). If you’ve got several people hitting the coffee bar every morning, the complete brewing system should be your go to.
Keurig K10/K15 MINI at Target $69.99
Keurig K425 Brewing System at Target $129.99
If nothing else, having a pour-over system will just make you look and feel fancy. I love to use my Chemex when I have spare time to make a special brew.
Bodum 4-cup Pour Over Coffee Maker at Target $17.99
Chemex Pour Over available at Whole Foods $45.99
Trust me, an espresso machine is worth the investment! You don’t have to use it every day, but it’s great for guests and special occasions.
Delonghi 15 Bar Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker at Target $199.99
Nespresso DeLonghi Espresso Machine at Target $299.99
Let’s face it—having cute mugs to drink your morning (or afternoon, or evening) coffee from is half the fun!

10 Strawberry Street Iriana Gold Can Cup Set of 4 at Target $69.99
Coffee Cup Holder
If you have a cabinet above the area where you’re setting up your coffee bar, use that to store mugs and other necessary items. If you don’t, grab a coffee cup holder to hang on the wall or set on the counter!
Spectrum Euro Mug Holder at Target $7.19
Cups for Days Rack @ Magnolia from Magnolia Market $85.00
Whole Bean Coffee
Your coffee bar is obviously going to need coffee! Buy Allegro Coffee Company’s whole bean coffee at Whole Foods and use their grinder for free so you can enjoy fresh grounds. Mmmm.
Allegro Blue Nile Blend from Whole Foods $11.99

Display your coffee in a tightly sealed glass jar so your coffee stays fresh!

Electric kettles heat the water up faster, and can be easily stored when they’re not in use! Here are my top recommendations

Dualit Design Series Kettle at Target $129.99
How you start your morning can make your break you entire day, so make the space your own little slice of morning peace. Happy coffee-ing!
