Built -In Coffee Center

Built-in Coffee Center

When I wake up in the morning, I need my coffee.  One of my morning rituals is to start the coffee brewing, check my e-mail, and then try to make sure all the kids are on schedule to catch the buses.  When my wife walks into the kitchen, after getting our youngest child up and ready for school, I pour her coffee and fix it the way she likes it.  After that, I am ready for anything.

From what I have read, we are not alone in our love of coffee.  According to www.coffeeresearch.org, over 108 million Americans drink about 146 billion cups of coffee a year.  We import over 4 billion dollars of worth of coffee per year.  Many studies have even found that coffee is good for us!(www.sciencedaily.com)

It is no wonder that our clients often ask us to design coffee centers in their homes.  These coffee stations can be as simple as a place on a counter top for the coffee maker, or as elaborate as a full service coffee bar.  We locate these bars in kitchens, family rooms and master bedrooms.

For those of us who love our coffee, the more ways we can get it the better.
