I spend a lot of time at the coffee station in my house. Whether I am making a coffee for myself or the man, I prefer to do it in an organized environment.
Nobody wants to walk downstairs first thing in the morning and walk into a messy kitchen and sleepily search for their favorite coffee.
Since the move, that has been the story of my life. So, Friday morning, on my day off from work, I decided to kick it into gear and finally set up our coffee station!!
Our Keurig is conveniently located next to the fridge and above the dishwasher. This creates an environment where it is easy to grab the cream from the fridge and put your mug in the dishwasher when you’re done.
Also, since like 83% of the dishes that come out of the dishwasher are mugs, it makes unloading a LOT easier.
Due to the location, there is not ample hidden storage for kcups. Therefore, we decided to go with an out-in-the-open approach. This contraption is actually a fruit basket, with three different compartments, each with different coffees.
The largest section houses the Dunkin Donuts Original Kcups because we drink them most and buy them in bulk.
The medium section is home to a single box of Starbucks Vanilla Flavored Kcups because we got them for Christmas and need to get rid of them so we will give them to unsuspecting guests.
The top tier is filled with Dunkin Donuts Chocolate Glazed Donut Kcups because they are seasonal and on their way out.
The spoon rest was an investment I made after writing this post about gift ideas for cat lovers because I thought it was cute and because I hate that sticky spot on the counter from setting the coffee spoon down.
In the interest of full disclosure, the mugs on the tree are only the matching ones. The entire bottom shelf of the cabinet above the coffee maker is full of mismatched mugs such as this one that the man got me for Christmas and this one that I use every monday.
