How to Have The Best Coffee Mornings at Home

Everyone has their favourite cafés and go-to coffee shops when it comes to a decent cup of coffee, but learning how to make your own coffee at home may be a life-changing skill for those days when you're stuck at home or are simply too busy to get out to buy.

Coffee making can be easily learned through videos and recipes. Anyone can basically do it as long as they have café essentials at home. So let’s dive into DIY brew making—it’s also a major plus for your home to smell like coffee!

If you’re a coffee lover and you always end up spending excessive amounts of money on caffeine, you don’t need a special event to start hosting or taking your espresso mornings to the next level.

Of course, to make this happen, you have to have your own coffee corner at home. 

Setting Up Your Own Coffee Corner

Instantly upgrade your Coffee Mornings at home by making your own coffee station. It doesn’t matter how little space you have. With a little ingenuity, your tight corners and tiny rooms can be totally functional.

A small shelf or table can do the trick. But if you have time and extra budget, a coffee bar is also a great option. Regardless of your preference, the only thing you need to consider is your coffee and tea essentials. 

Coffee Essentials You Don’t Want To Miss Out On

You can opt for lightweight coffee bar furniture and appliances so you can move them around when you need to make adjustments. Moreover, compact gadgets will also complement your coffee corner.

A Moka Pot brews a strong, espresso-like coffee by passing boiling water pressurized steam through coffee grounds. Here’s a quick step-by-step on how to make it:

  1. Fill the lower chamber of the Moka pot with boiling water up to the fill line.
  2. Then, fill the filter basket with ground coffee, making sure it is even but not too compact and brushing away any loose grounds around the edge of the filter basket.
  3. Place it into the bottom compartment and screw on the spouted top before placing the pot on a stove set to medium heat.
  4. Remove from heat as soon as you hear a hissing, bubbling sound.

Good espresso-like coffee shouldn’t be expensive and hard to make. It’s amazing how an affordable Moka Pot can make your coffee corner functional and accessible. Definitely one of our favourite products for this collection.
