At-home Coffee Bar


I do my coffee at home each morning. This is partly because the first thing when I do when I stumble out of bed is to walk into my coffee bar in my kitchen and make a cup of strong dark french roast with some foam on top. Lately I've been sprinkling a little pumpkin pie spice on the top for my healthy version (no sugar) of a PSL.

I received this white cafe coffee maker last year for Christmas and I love it. It is quiet, looks minimalistic, and it makes great coffee. On the day-to day I just use the three products below. I do drip dark french roast that I freshly grind in my grinder. I then put half n' half in my nespresso foamer and add a little foam on top. My foamer has been discontinued but I like this white one below that is affordable.


I have splurged a little bit on these coffee accessories because I drink coffee as a daily ritual and it is the first part of my day, so for me it is worth splurging on something that I use every day. I rationalize that I save money not purchasing a coffee from a coffee shop on a regular basis, and I know what is going into my drink. (A lot of fancy drinks have syrups, and added sugars.) At some point, I would love to purchase a fancy cappuccino machine, but right now with trying to get two kids off to school, making drip coffee is a bit easier for me. We have the Breville espresso machine in our cabin in Oregon, and I love it for cozy cabin vacations when you can leisurely make your own cappuccino or Americano. We sometimes do a little expresso in the afternoon when a thunderstorm comes in. When I splurge on an espresso machine I want one of these:


These all have a built-in grinder and a milk frother so then you don't need the separate ones I linked above. Obviously, they are more of a splurge, but if you spend $5 on coffee every day in less than 4 months you'd have an espresso machine paid for. I try to splurge on daily rituals and things I really use because I don't want to spend money on expensive appliances that sit in the cupboard. So, what do you think? Would you splurge on an espresso machine?
