DIY Coffee/Tea Bar

Several years ago I saw a small little homemade coffee bar in a design book and have wanted to create the area for myself ever since. I have a wooden cart that I bought from Ikea a few years ago for extra space which just so happened to have the perfect amount of space next to the microwave for my idea. I added a little neutral place mat that fit perfectly to kind of draw the eye from the natural wood.

I just added the items that we mostly use in the space like my traveler tumbler, french press, espresso pots, cups, tea, creamer and sugar. I have tons of more items (coffee, espresso, syrups, Saudi coffee) but they obviously will not all fit there but I am fine with that because everything is organized close in my kitchen. My husband is a tea drinker and uses the instant kind of tea and coffee so I placed those two items there for him to use. I also keep all the extra creamers and sugar that I get and put them in a little glass container on top of the microwave as you can see I have tons and I am just one person so if you have a lot of coffee drinkers in your home you could really stock up. The course brown sugar they give you is great for beauty treatments too. So there you have it friends a simple little coffee and tea area that I added. I hope you liked this little peek inside my kitchen.

    Thats cute!! you should add a water boiler too if there’s a power outlet next to the cart :)

      Ugh thats one thing I hate about Saudi homes you hardly get any plugs and when you do its like maybe one in each room. Back home in the states we have plugs everywhere especially the kitchen. I always just boil my water on the stove in the kettle bc I am always afraid of some horrid accident with my son and one of the electric ones. But I do like them :)

    This is a nice and simple idea! I like it! Why don’t you have more power outlets Noor? We have loads in our flat in Jeddah.

      Thanks so much! I do not know all the places we looked at had like 1 plug in them and the one we have now does as well. We had to bring an electrician just to fix one so we could plug our fridge.

    MashaAllah looks nice. I do agree in Riyadh we had alot of issues with finding electric outlets on more than just one wall. What’s up with that?!
    Do you like your Bialetti Espresso Maker? I want to invest in one inshallah after reading alot of the reviews that it makes creamy espresso if executed properly. :-)

      Oh I LOVE it and since I bought it I do not dare use anything else. It’s the last thing I will buy for my coffee.
