The Coffee Bar Trend

Coffee.

We all need it.  We all LOVE it.  It's addicting and sometimes expensive.  "Let's meet for Coffee". "Do you want an after dinner Cappuccino?"  "I'll have a Venti, 2 Pump Soy Mocha, No Whipped Cream".


Recently in the home DIY circles, and in real estate photos, I've been noticing the introduction of the home coffee bar.  Sometimes it's a small area in the kitchen and sometimes it's a big production all of it's own.


I'm seeing built-in coffee bars,

furniture-turned-coffee bars,


Dedicated corners in the Kitchen

Coffee "stations" in the living room,

In the dining room,

and in the bathroom.
... although I'm not a big fan of this one.  Maybe it's because my bathrooms always seem to be dirty - no matter how clean they are.

So.
Is this a fad or a trend that is here to stay?
It's easier than ever to make a cup of coffee these days with the one cup pods.  
Myself, I prefer to go to Starbucks.
I have an impressive number of Starbucks mugs collected from places I've been.

This was taken 2 years ago.
I have more now.

I guess I'd better get cracking on getting me a coffee bar.
Somewhere.
I don't want to be the only kid on the block without one!
