Happy Monday! I thought it was only fitting today to talk about coffee cabinet organization ideas. A few weeks back I turned a dead cabinet space into a coffee station and it has been a absolute dream to have in our home. Our family are big coffee drinkers and since I got my Keurig for Christmas (yes I know I was super late to the game!), I have even been enjoying have a small cup of coffee in the afternoon. All the items that make up our little coffee addiction was getting out of control in our pantry, I decided this over stuffed, not used cabinet needed a major makeover. Pretty bad right? I am almost embarrassed to show you what it used to look like.
And here is what it looks like now. Much better isn’t it?!!

Maybe you have a cabinet like this you can redo?? Grab my tips below and my full shopping guide to make your dream coffee cabinet.
Coffee Cabinet Organization Tips:
1. Decide what you need to go into the cabinet.
I wanted our cabinet to not only hold coffee items but things to make hot cocoa and tea. I split the ingredients I would want into these 3 categories and made a list of what I would need. Here is what my general lists looked like.
Coffee Bar Contents:
- coffee pods
- coffee beans
- coffee mugs
- to-go coffee cups
- stir sticks
Hot Cocoa Contents:
- hot cocoa pods
- cocoa powder
- tea bags
2. Pick out the perfect sized containers.
This will depend on the space you have to dedicate to these items. I turned in a cabinet that was not being utilized very good. I ended up have a tall but narrow space. So I decided on some containers that were small in scale and could hold my essentials. I choose a few larger ones to hold our coffee pods in bulk and back stock of our coffee beans and sugar. I found great affordable containers for the small condiments that were the perfect size for the space.
Here is a list of the exact items I selected for our coffee cabinet.
- canisters for tea, marshmallows and stir sticks – set of 3 containers with lids
- sugar container with spoon
- honey jar with stir stick
- set of 2 shakers for cocoa and cinnamon
- candy jars for coffee and hot cocoa pods
- glass canisters for coffee beans and sugar
- black and white coffee mugs
- to-go white coffee cups with lids
- wood stir sticks
3. Stock it!
Once you have your containers picked out, then you can buy all your items. I picked up the majority of it from the grocery store but even Amazon is a great source for easy online buying in bulk.
4. Label it!
Here comes the fun part! Or maybe that is just the type-A personality coming out in me! I love to label things and create handmade tags. I think they are a fun personalized way to add some organization to your space. These labels I made took me less than 10 minutes to create and you can save and download your own for free HERE for set 1 and HERE for set 2. I chose THIS clear adhesive paper to print them on.
A few tips on printing on paper like this:
- Let dry for at least 20 minutes before you cut out your labels. If not they may smear.
- In your printer settings choose glossy or adhesive paper settings.
The paper does come with print setting suggestions but after years of printing my own paper decor, I have found selecting the closets print options on your print settings is always the way to go.
Are you ready to turn a dead cabinet space into a coffee station? Trust me, your friends will love it when they come over for some girl time. It really feels a little luxurious to have so many options to make your drink in the morning. . . . and in the afternoon too! I love a good cup of coffee in the afternoon. Enjoy friends and hope you loved these coffee cabinet organization ideas.
