Select a Cart That Suits Your Style

Allow the make and model of your coffee machine to inform the style of your cart. For example, a sleek silver-and-black coffee machine would look lovely atop an art-deco-inspired, polished chrome cart. In addition, think carefully about the dimensions and durability of your cart. If you'll be storing a significant number of items on each shelf, look for a larger cart with a sturdy, supportive structure in place that can anchor items.

Add a Premium Coffee Maker

Choose a Theme — and Mugs to Match

Transform your coffee bar cart into a creative corner by selecting a theme that showcases your current obsessions. If your preferred java flavor is Keurig® The Original Donut Shop Coffee K-Cup® Pods, incorporate accents that evoke your adoration of sweet treats with donut-embossed mugs and napkins. If you adore all things aquatic, choose mermaid mugs and a conch shell for good measure. And if your taste in entertainment leans toward fantasy-laden historical dramas, swap your average mug for a gilded goblet. The top shelf of your cart is the perfect platform for displaying your unique collection, and celebrating your love of coffee. Arrange a selection of mugs, glasses, or tumblers on the top shelf for easy access.

Consider Superfood Condiments That Enhance Your Java's Flavor

The perfect coffee condiments should enhance the taste of your brew, and 2017's new crop of imaginative add-ins offers options to pair perfectly with every coffee blend under the sun. Think outside the box when determining which superfood ingredients would best match your selected coffee flavor. Would your ideal cup of coffee come equipped with a dash of mood-boosting ashwagandha to give your mug extra zest or a coconut sugar rock candy to play up its subtle sweetness? Utilize the second shelf of your cart for trendy flavoring accoutrements that will further enhance a cup of java. Store your preferred condiments in glass apothecary jars to maintain organization, and offer an array of silver spoons in an open mason jar for simplified stirring.

Personalize It With Intriguing Accents

After you have your basics covered, customize your cart with trend-forward and eclectic elements that will accentuate your coffee maker. Adorn the corner of your cart with an array of rose quartz crystals to give your morning especially good vibes, or add some succulents for a bohemian look. Keep a favorite framed photograph against the back of the cart for a cafe-meets-art-gallery atmosphere to complement every single delicious cup.
