Jen gave several examples for how to set one up, here is my favorite:
I just loved the way she made the plain coffee maker look so inviting by adding a tray, her favorite mug and some flowers! Also note, that is a bowl of whole coffee beans sitting where the cup goes in the coffeemaker, genius!
For my own coffee station I re-purposed a tray from a collection of fun colored sushi trays I had inherited from my Grannie, picking my favorite teal colored one that matches the color theme in the kitchen. I placed our bag of coffee on it (we buy Klatch Coffee because it is fair trade and is a local coffee shop we want to support), a bowl of sweeteners, and of course the all important coffee scooper.
