Coffee Time ~ My New Beverage Station

Hello, I'm so thrilled you have stopped by to say G'day today! If you are new here welcome to Natasha in Oz, my little corner of the internet world Down Under. If you are an old friend, Welcome Back!

I have had such a great week this week thanks to my new Beverage Station!

I have been able to enjoy my morning coffee piping hot for a change; I am usually rushing around making lunches and preparing breakfast for everyone and then drinking it cold!

So, on the subject of coffee, today I am sharing a small change I've made in our kitchen. I've recently been inspired by some of the wonderful coffee stations that I've seen on Pinterest and I thought I should do a little faffing and try and set up my own.

Do you have a coffee station at your place?

Here's some of the images that really inspired me.


This is my dream coffee station!

Here's my new and improved Beverage Station!

I only had a very small area that I could use for my coffee bar but, as you can see, I was still able to set up an efficient coffee station quite easily.

Cups and saucers are all stored in the drawer below.

I used a vintage silver sugar and creamer set which looks perfect with my pretty Cath Kidston spoons.

Before I go I just want to thank my Dad who is a Vietnam Veteran for all he did for us and for our country this ANZAC day weekend.

Thank you dad!

  2. Hi, Natasha! I'm so glad to hear you had a lovely day off. I love my coffee super hot as well and usually wait until I'm alone and settled to sit down with that first cup! Ahhhh!

    I would love to have a coffee station, I very much like the one in the second image. Yours is terrific, it's nice spot to keep everything handy and it looks attractive.

    Hope all is well with you and your family!

    XO,
    Jane

  10. It's so cute! And I have the exact same coffee maker. I have a sort-of coffee station, but I need to add some spoons and maybe some cups. I've been on the hunt for a good tray to use, too, but it's hard to find one big enough for that huge coffee maker. Well done!!

  11. It's very elegant...and I love the books next to it. It makes me want to sit down with a book, and a cuppa, and enjoy the slide into winter. :)

  12. Love your beverage station and all the pictures for inspiration! I'm totally inspired to do this in my kitchen now. :) Thank you!!!

  13. Love all your coffee bar ideas. I am trying to set something up, but haven't been successful yet. My biggest problem is my DH is such a messy coffee drinker that I need something to protect my counter tops at the same time. I have tried trays, placemats so far. Still haven't got the perfect solution.

  26. It looks wonderful! Those little spoons are adorable; but I'm bowled over with your drawer -- is that the IKEA drawer organizer system? I know they have one, but I can't remember for sure what it looks like. Wonderful!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Carol and for your sweet comment! The drawer system isn't an Ikea one; it's from Blum but I'm certain that Ikea do exactly the same same thing. It is such a great way to keep everything organised!

      Hope you have a great week and thanks again for visiting!

      Best wishes,
      Natasha

  31. Hi there! Just found your blog on Twirl&Take a Bow.. Cute idea. Coffee addict here - and every morning/afternoon/evening I lug out all the different containers to make the coffee and then they sit around on the counter (annoying me) - and then I put them away, again and again. I need to do this! I have the perfect spot too. Thank you! :)

Everything looks better on a tray too keeps it tidy and organised yours looks really good. Love the cute spoons too :)
