Over the weekend I turned the buffet cabinet in my parents house into a hot chocolate and coffee bar. If there is one thing about my family it’s that we all love coffee! We love it so much that it was taking over the kitchen counter and my mom wanted to have everything in a cute, designated area for the holidays and cooler weather! We went to Target and picked up a few things from the dollar section and the Christmas new arrivals and the rest of the items we used were things we already had!
I started by adding the two coffee machines we have to the buffet. I use the Breville barista express which makes shots of espresso and my parents use the Mr. Coffee 14 cup coffee maker.
We added some to go iced coffee cups in the cabinet below and added this cute hot tea sign that came in a package from the target dollar section.
On the other side of the counter we added a variety of syrups including raspberry, peppermint and vanilla which are three of my favorites! I usually pick my syrups up from World Market or order them on Amazon. If you aren’t sure which flavors you’d like you can always start with a variety pack like this one https://amzn.to/3hLWgE3
One of my favorite purchases was the pumps for the large syrup jars that I have. They are easy to clean and I’ve been using these same two for the last few years! You can find a few different pack options on Amazon and it makes adding syrup to your coffee or hot chocolate super easy!
This is the pack that I originally purchased: https://amzn.to/3UNStUJ
But you can also find packs that include more pumps such as this one https://amzn.to/3fZr97m
