How to create an at-home coffee station

Rise and grind! Even before Sabrina Carpenter had us all thinking about Espresso, coffee and café culture have been having a major moment and now many are eager to bring that cosy coffee shop vibe home. Taking inspiration from the popularity of cocktail and bar carts, Pinterest predicts the ‘café-core’ trend will take off in 2024, with coffee stations allowing us to create our very own at-home café.

There’s nothing more comforting than waking up to a great cup of coffee, especially when it means you don’t need to leave the house on a chilly or wet winter morning. For coffee lovers, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures, and with so many variables, there’s a real art to perfecting your ideal cup. Whether you’re a seasoned barista or casual enthusiast, having a personalised, stylish, and functional coffee station adds charm to your home and adds to an already enjoyable ritual. Regardless of whether you go big or small, designing your very own coffee nook is a great way to espresso yourself.

From cups and canisters to books and bowls, make every morning brew-tiful with these coffee station essentials, available at Westfield.

Above all else, your coffee station needs to be practical! Depending on your budget and brew of choice, you might already own an espresso machine, French press, stovetop espresso coffee maker or drip filter coffee machine, which will form the base of your coffee station. Once this hero item is in place, consider any other essentials you’ll need, like canisters or storage containers, milk jugs, and most importantly, vessels for your coffee. From serious espresso glasses to deep latte mugs, every aesthetic and every type of coffee drinker should be covered.

Now that the essentials are taken care of, the fun part of styling your coffee station can begin. Whether you’re working with a small bench or shelf, or you have a bit more space to play with, there are plenty of ways to bring personality to your coffee station. Co-ordinating your mugs and plates or adding more colour and interest through books, a café style chalkboard and coffee-inspired prints are an easy way to do this. If you have guests coming over to enjoy a coffee and chat, fresh fruit, bread and flowers will make the space feel even more warm and inviting.
