If you need coffee first thing in the morning—like, maybe even before you speak to anyone in your household—you owe it to your sleepy, under-caffeinated self to make sure your coffee is accessible and ready to go. A coffee bar cabinet is a brilliant way to get coffee in your favorite mug as quickly as possible.
A coffee bar cabinet gives coffee drinkers a place to keep all of their coffee accessories in one place— including the coffee or espresso maker itself. Some have hooks to hang coffee mugs, while others offer spacious cabinets, drawers and shelves for your mugs and other coffee-related things. Of course, placing your coffee maker on your kitchen counter and opening cabinets to reach your coffee cup, sugar, etc. works too, but if you have a passion for coffee, you deserve a stylish coffee bar station that'll bring you immense joy—and coffee. All the coffee.

What to Consider When Purchasing a Coffee Bar Cabinet
Size: The size of your coffee bar cabinet will depend on the size of your coffee machine, the number of accessories that go along with it and how much space you have or want to dedicate. Many standalone coffee stations take up as much space as a dresser or nightstand. They often have one or two cabinets, drawers or sliding doors with plenty of space on top for a coffee machine, as well as shelf space underneath for cups, coffee beans, sugar, honey and whatever else you take your coffee with. There's also typically more space for other items that need storing.
Style: Since a coffee bar cabinet is a piece of furniture that you'll likely be putting in your kitchen, dining room or living room, you'll probably want it to match with the rest of your home decor. You can find coffee sideboards that look like a unique accent furniture piece, ones with a farmhouse vibe, ones that have a rustic look, mid-century modern options and others that look a bit more basic but get the job done.
Price: Most coffee bar sideboards range from $100 to $300, with some costing over $400 depending on the size, the material used and where it's from. Some coffee bar cabinets can double as rolling kitchen carts or other storage for kitchen items, which might make you feel better about spending the money.
