Have you ever wanted to  roll our of bed, walk into the kitchen and have your own little Starbucks® set up for you to enjoy? Just about every girl's dream right? I am such a huge coffee lover, I'm talking about drinking it all day long, so I knew I needed to come up with a cute solution to all of my coffee supplies cluttering the counter.

After thinking and dreaming up this coffee bar cart design for a while, I finally took the plunge and built it from scratch! I'm talking about having zero plans or measurements to begin with and just winging it. I am super proud of it and will be sharing my tutorial so that you can make you own on Monday! For today, I want to talk about styling your bar cart to fit your design style and your coffee needs. Let's get started!

HOW TO STYLE A COFFEE BAR CART

1.  COFFEE MAKER: You can't have coffee without a coffee maker right? So, first choose your favorite one. My favorite is my Keurig® that my mom got me for my birthday at the beginning of the year. It's super easy to use, I get the perfect amount and it is hot and fresh every cup. With my regular coffee pot, my coffee would sit there throughout the day and just wasn't that fresh in the late afternoon. The one that I have can also brew a pot and large cups of coffee. It has the option for 16oz which is wonderful for my husband who gulps everything down quickly. Also, it brews other beverages too like cocoa for the kids. They actually think it's an unlimited cocoa machine which it is not!

2. YOUR FAVORITE COFFEE. If you LOVE coffee then you know which coffee is the best. You will have a personal favorite and there are so many kinds to choose from. Since I mostly use my Keurig®, I'm gonna talk about k-cups. I have always loved the Starbucks® Dark Roast K-Cup® but recently I found something even better. Oh my goodness, it is seriously the real deal in a cup! I'm talking about the Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods. Not only are delicious, 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). Pumpkin Spice? Yes please! I've added that one to my grocery list. You can get them at your local grocery store.





3. Cute Coffee Mugs. Choose a few cute mugs to place on your shelves so they are easily accessible and are ready anytime you want coffee. You can change out your mugs with every season too which makes it really fun!


4. Baskets. You will need a few different sized and shaped baskets like I used to hold specific things like your  Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods and flavor packets. You could place another basket on the shelf for kid's drinks. The bigger baskets on the bottom can be used for holding bags of beans if you choose to grind your own along with your grinder ect.



5. Accessories. What is a cute coffee cart without cute accessories? Place a pretty flower arrangement, a little picture frame with a coffee quote printable in it, mason jars for straws and spoons. You could even style it similar to a bookcase and use some recipe book with bookends. The possibilities are endless.

Now let's talk about making the new  Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods.

It's an easy two-step process to make a really yummy Caramel Latte. Step 1 is to pour the flavor packet into the mug. Step 2 is to brew the Starbucks® Caffe Blend K-Cup® pod in your Keurig® brewer and stir to enjoy the beverage.







Have you ever wanted a little coffee cart set up in your home? Don't forget Monday I'll be sharing my tutorial so you can recreate mine. Then you can head to your local grocery store and pick up some new coffee to stock up on. Which new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are you going to try?
