Ready, Set, JOE!

If java fuels your day, then coffee deserves a designated zone in or near your kitchen. Making a custom coffee or espresso station is easier than you might think. Add a freestanding cabinet or credenza along a hall or a few feet of empty wall. Then add open shelving above and a washable tray to corral mugs, beans, sugar, creamer, machines, and anything else you need to make your perfect cup.
