What should be included in a café?

Exactly what you choose to include will be a person depends on how much space you have. But here are the things that most coffee shops include:

Coffee Basics

  • coffee maker (This is our coffee maker for years and love)
  • Choice of coffee or beans
  • K cups (if using them)
  • coffee grinder
  • coffee dispenser (Can’t believe it took me so long to get one of these – amazing)
  • 6 to 8 coffee cups or coffee cups
  • Few coffee mugs for travel
  • portable grip (I use this little thing every day to stir collagen powder into my coffee)
  • milk foam (I only use it when I have time to enjoy my coffee, but it’s very nice)
  • Packages for storing things like sugar/sweetener of choice, collagen powder, etc.

These items are completely optional and will depend on how much space you have as well as what you like/care about!
