How To Set Up A Coffee Bar

Set up a coffee bar with this guide and you will never want to step foot into a coffee shop again. Not only will you save time on not having to drive to grab your favorite cup of coffee but you will save money too.

I can’t get over how much one cup of coffee costs today and I can make it for a fraction of the cost at home.

Use my guide to create the perfect spot in your home for your coffee bar.

Pick A Location

Start with picking where you want to put a coffee bar. Think about space for the coffee machine as well as storage for all your coffee essentials.

Another thing to think about when you are deciding on the location for your coffee station is convenience. You will need to have easy access to a sink for clean up and refrigerated items like coffee creamer.

From a cabinet in the kitchen to a rolling cart that can be placed in any room in your home, you can literally place a coffee bar just about anywhere you would like it.

Decide How It Should Look

Decide what you would like your coffee station to look like. Do you want it concealed in a closed cabinet, on a rolling cart with pieces to hold mugs, or on a counter with a tray.

Look for inspiration from existing coffee bars and cafes to get ideas of what you do and don’t like.

Think about who will be using the coffee bar and what kinds of coffee they like to make.

Create Storage Solutions

Creating storage solutions for all the coffee items you will be stocking is essential so it does not end up being cluttered. Have a spot for each thing to go in.

Use baskets, canisters, bowls, etc to house straws, coffee pods, and other essential coffee items.

This will also help you keep tabs of when you are low on ingredients and will need to add them to your grocery list.

Gather Supplies

Shop and collect all the items you will need for your coffee bar. Here is my general list of what I like to stock mine with.

Set Up Equipment

Install your equipment and arrange your supplies. Place the espresso machine, coffee grinder, and other brewing tools in convenient locations.

Think about what you would like out all the time and what can go stored away that isn’t used as much.

Arrange your equipment in a way that optimizes the workflow of your coffee bar. Consider the order in which you make your coffee.

Label Containers

Next, use some adhesive labels to attach to any canisters and containers. This will help you quickly find ingredients when you need them.

I love to use printable ones like these ones or even these ones are already printed for you which makes it so easy to just peel and stick!

Add Some Personality

Lastly, it’s time to add some pieces that reflect your personality and add a little pop to the space.

Consider adding decorative elements that complement the style and create visual interest. This could include artwork, plants, unique coffee-related displays, or themed accessories.

Just make sure to not clutter the space and to keep it clean and pulled together.

Creating your own coffee bar setup allows you to save money and customize your coffee experience.

With your very own coffee bar, you’ll be able to experiment with different flavors and brewing techniques, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of your favorite roast.

So go ahead, channel your inner barista, and create the ultimate coffee experience in your home with your very own coffee bar!
