You guys want a little look behind the scenes of my Design Star episode?! I had so much fun being a guest judge on HGTV's Design Star: Next Gen, and even more fun watching it all back last week. I...
Coffee Bar Faves That Stepped Up My Quarantine Barista Game
Alright guys, I need to let you all know about all my coffee bar faves that have been getting me through the days! Because I don’t know about you guys, but on day 120-something (I think we all stopped counting!) of quarantine, our at-home coffee game is STRONG. And I’m not just talkin’ about the caffeine levels!
Being home all the time inspired Brett and me to really put some thought into our home coffee bar setup. And we all know how necessary coffee is while working from home. Now that we’re our own baristas, we’ve taken our coffee gear from “this is a coffee pot that works okay” to a full-blown assembly of coffee machines and tools to give us an amazing cup of Joe in the comfort of our own kitchen.
It’s the little things that make you smile on countless days of “the same,” especially when you can’t really go anywhere. So going the extra mile to get new, pretty coffee mugs and a satisfying coffee scoop helps to set this happy daily ritual and kick the day off right. And yes, we stocked up on new travel mugs even in quarantine, because any new parent knows that you need coffee ‘round the clock, but your cup ends up cold because you run off to feed the baby, wash some bottles, and so on. I’ll take 5 travel mugs please, and station them around the house so we have a hot cup waiting for us anywhere we turn (kidding)! I wanted to share all my fave coffee finds that have helped us with our coffee experience at home – I hope you find something you like for your own favorite drinks!
Coffee Bar Faves That Stepped up My Quarantine Barista Game
If you’re drinking iced coffee (hello, it’s HOT here in Huntington Beach right now), a coaster is a must. I just added these to my Shop and I’m obsessed!
Smeg Coffee Maker
Form and function right here! Super cute and makes a super great cup.
More Shop goodies! I love that these look like treasured ceramics on my open shelves when they’re not in use.
Coffee Clip & Scoop
This gadget is so cool! I love that it can clip onto things – like a bag of coffee beans.
Cool cutting boards are great for styling your little coffee bar area! Make your kitchen feel like your favorite hip coffee shop – you deserve it.
Pour Over Coffee
If you’re into the pour-over game, these also look super pretty on shelves or countertops when not in use.
Environmentally friendly straws so you can sip that iced coffee or chai!
Grab a tray to corral all your coffee gear. It makes all the difference.
This syrup is the perfect addition if you want to spice up your coffee routine!
Yes, even in quarantine we still leave the house sometimes (or even just to the patio).
Hey, fancy barista! Nice milk frother!
I can’t stop laughing over this print! Sums up my house (and newborn baby life) perfectly.
