Starbucks®-Inspired DIY Coffee Corner

It's taken a few months, but I can just about say that we are completely unpacked in our new house.  Currently, my favorite room of the house is the kitchen.  We have space to cook together, it opens to the rest of the house so we can easily entertain, and there is even the perfect little nook to create a coffee corner.  The Keurig® brewer is definitely our most used kitchen appliance, so we knew that it needed to have an easily-accessible spot.
What is a coffee corner?  It's that one place you can stumble to half-asleep each morning, knowing that your best friend (caffeine) will be waiting for you.  It's also the perfect spot in your kitchen for all of your mugs, K-Cup® Pods, sugar and creamers, and fun coffee tools.  Today, I'm excited to share my five steps with you for putting together your own at-home beverage bar:

1 || Find the right spot in your home.  Pick a place there is power, and make sure there is enough space for everything to be accessible in one place.
2 || Hook up your Keurig.  Plug it in and fill it with water.  We also have a really handy sliding K-Cup® Pods organizer underneath, so we made sure to fill that, too.
3 || Give yourself some morning motivation.  Waking up during the week is never fun or easy.  I created this "Here Comes The Sun" print and placed it in a frame so that I'd start humming one of my favorite tunes each morning.
4 || Add a pop of color.  I love that bright pink frame for my print as well as fresh blooms in my kitchen!
5 || Make yourself a morning cup!  Now the fun begins.  Pop in your favorite K-Cup® Pod, and you're less than a minute from delicious coffee!  My newest obsession are Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods.  They are made from milk, with no artificial flavors, and they come in 3 great Starbucks® signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla) and 2 beloved Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha, available for a limited time).
There is a two-step process to make this beverage: step 1 is to pour the flavor packet into your favorite mug and step 2 is to brew the Starbucks® Caffe Blend K-Cup® Pod in your Keurig® brewer and stir to enjoy.
After trying all three signature flavors, my favorite is definitely the Caramel Starbucks® Caffè Latte, but come Christmas, that could likely change to the seasonal Peppermint Mocha.  All that's left to do is sit out on the porch and enjoy a few minutes of "me" time before work!
The products are available nationally at your local grocery store.  You can even save $1.50 on any one box of Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods by downloading a coupon on the Starbucks® Coffee at Home website here.

Such a cute space, I really love it!

Julie said...

Cute idea! We still don't have a keurig (I don't drink coffee but Keith does) and the only problem with getting one is that sometimes he's in the mood for just 1 cup, sometimes its like 5 cups so we'd go through those pretty fast.

Awe, I love you little coffee nook. That latte sounds delicious. I'll have to give it a try!

Your little station is all sorts of adorable!! I'm already onto the Holiday 2016 blend Starbucks k-cups!!!

Ashley @ A Cute Angle said...

Frist, I love your kitchen!! Second, I have to get this drink for my Keurig! It looks delicious!

I just saw a commercial for these yesterday and thought "I need to try those". I have not tried the Starbucks at Home products because I've always had a Starbucks nearby. I now live in a small town without a decent coffee shop. I have to get some better at home options!

Macy V said...

What a perfect coffee space you created!! I really need to try these new products. Caramel will likely be my favorite as well. I hope they come out with a caramel brûlée one!

Petula said...

This is an ideal coffee nook. I love how you've set it up with a favorite quote and fresh flowers. I don't have a Keurig, but I do have a little coffee space set up. I don't normally use any Starbucks products at home, but do I do have a dark chocolate mix for coffee... I can't recall the name. Love this post.

I just love how organized your coffee corner is! I mean seriously, so easy to stumble in and get a cup while still half awake! And it just looks so nice! Love that! - client

That latte looks amazing! I don't buy Starbucks products often enough to make at home but great idea. My kitchen cabinets and counters look almost identical to yours.

I have actually put some thought into getting a Keurig for table on my husband's side of the bed. So he can have that first "I need a cup of coffee before I can deal with getting out of bed" cup in the morning.
