In the past, we’ve seen many homeowners install permeant coffee/espresso machines in their kitchen or master suites. While that is an elegant solution to the daily caffeine requirement, may we offer another solution?

A dedicated coffee bar area.

In this area we put in hand-made tiles by local Oregon company Tempest Tileworks, Quartz counters installed by The Marble Company, and Moen sink and faucet. Upper open shelving is a great place to display mugs, while a plug down below means you can change out your coffee machine any time you want. This versatile design also means you can use the space creatively during parties, rather than using a dedicated cabinet space for a machine that may or may not last the test of time.
