Coffee Cart at Home


The want for a coffee cart in our kitchen at home probably started at Tiny's No. 5.  Their coffee station has everything in one spot available for us to help ourselves.  Practical, functional and so good lookin:


Then I ran across this on Pinterest and the want turned into have to have, it looked so convenient and nice to have everything off the kitchen counter:

The have to have only got worse while browsing vacation options and I ran across this:

The Wauwinet - Continental Breakfast
Then dreams came true when I found this cart out at Blue Hills in Round Top, Texas.  The gold knobs on the silver body first caught my eye, loved it!  It had rails on three sides, a towel bar on one side and it was on wheels, perfect for a beverage cart!  They said it came from a hospital, do you see the potential?:


Here it is in our kitchen, finally set up and ready for the sun to rise!


It's going to be great to have everything all in one place and off the kitchen counter.  This stuff gets used all day long so it might as well stay out.  On the top we have a basket of K-Cups, oatmeal, hot chocolate, napkins and to-go cup tops, the sugar canister and a cup of wood stirrers and paper straws.


Here's the best part: Our sugar spoon.  My cousin found it at the Nutcracker and it makes me smile every morning.  The hand stamped spoon says "stir me right round baby" and I can't help busting out in song every time I use it.  To see the artists full collection go here on Etsy.


About our coffee maker:  An Insta-Hot was always so great to use at the office and I always wanted one at home.  My dream kitchen will have an instant hot water faucet at the sink.  For now, our new Keurig has an option for hot water so we use it for oatmeal and hot tea as well as coffee, tell it to your neighbor!


We still value a pot of coffee so our old coffee maker is still on the counter in the corner, but it might be going away soon.


The cart has a divided drawer to store all this great stuff:


And lastly, the bottom shelf,  I stole this basket tray (it's on sale right now) from our coffee table and it's great for coffee cups and oatmeal bowls.  The cart needed a little warm texture to steer clear of industrial, so the baskets do the trick.


"Kaffetåren den bästa är av alla jordiska drycker." - a traditional Swedish saying.  Translation: "A cup of coffee is the best of all the world's drinks." 

The Service Series will continue next post.
