Every good day starts with your favorite cup of coffee in the morning. One thing that makes that morning coffee even better every day is having a dedicated coffee bar in your kitchen stocked with all of your favorite flavorings that make your coffee extra special.
A coffee bar is more than just having your coffee machine on your kitchen counter. It’s the place that sets the tone for your entire day. I don’t know about you, but a bad coffee in the morning doesn’t get my day off to a great start.
I am beyond excited to tell you about how I am using my Ball® Stack & Store Jars in this space and why I recommend using them for your coffee bar!
In today’s post, I will show you step by step how to create the perfect fall coffee bar that you look forward to using every morning.
Step 1 | Select Your Coffee Machine
If you are a true coffee lover, you most likely have more than one coffee machine that you like to use. Depending on how much counter space you have, you are going to have to choose which one you want to use for your coffee bar.
I recommend choosing the machine that you gravitate towards most often throughout the week. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to be permanent. You can easily switch them out on a weekly basis to change things up.
Step 2 | Pick Your Toppings/Dry Ingredients
I am using my Ball® Stack & Store Jars (size: 4 cup) to store all of my coffee bar toppings. These jars are airtight, stackable, and perfect for storing any type of dry ingredients you may need for your coffee bar!
I like to use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips to melt into my espresso when it’s brewing. I also use brown sugar to make my version of a brown sugar shaken expresso. You can also add peppermint chips, cinnamon, caramel pieces, and even your coffee beans/grounds.
Step 3 | Choose Your Syrups
Every good cup of coffee, latte, macchiato, whatever you like needs a good syrup and you want to make sure that you have a variety right at your fingertips.
I like to switch my syrups out based on the season to change things up. My lineup for Fall this year is vanilla, caramel, white chocolate, and pumpkin spice. Here are some other fun syrups that are great to have on hand for Fall:
- Brown Sugar
- Salted Carmel
- Pumpkin Pie
Step 4 | Add Your Decor
Now that your coffee bar is stocked and ready to use, it’s time to spice it up a bit and give it some personality! Since we are doing a Fall coffee bar be sure to throw in some decorative pumpkins, fall floral stems, and maybe even a fall-themed coffee bar sign to tie your coffee bar together!
