  • Home Coffee Cart

    Have just finished building a new house, and its looking good, but kitchen bench space is at a bit of a premium and I wasnt allowed to setup my coffee stuff (granted, it takes up a bit of room). While walking through IKEA, I found a cool looking wooden cart and thought it would be perfect as I could move it around as required. The wood was a light beech colour, and I couldnt be bothered sanding it right back to stain it, so I grabbed some spray paint. The colour said it was chocolate brown, but I figured it should be coffee brown really (although the paint was from Germany, the land of chocolate). Anyway, its all done and it looks pretty good for under $200 so I figured Id post it up for others who dont have enough room to do their coffee thing to be inspired...

    I would say that is a successful job and a sound idea for those of CSers that need extra bench space

    As long as it can be wheeled between rooms by way of fitting through doorways

      Nice work doug! Im renting and dont have the height or bench space to fit my coffee gear either - and I have surprisingly utilised exactly the same cart! Found a cheapy on gumtree and it has worked a treat ever since. I would like a little bit more depth, but having the draws to tuck anything away that would create clutter, plus being able to have bean storage all in the one unit is great!

      I currently dont have any towels down, but Im looking for what I like to call the hazchem - a pub beer mat that is actually a coffee mat.

        Looks to be about CS7-8 to me.

            yep, only 43cm wide. fits my mazzer mini and silvia perfectly, but if youve got larger stuff you might struggle, or youd have to put another bit of wood ontop for more room. the drawers are very handy for all the bits and pieces, and having a shelf for roasted and a shelf for green is a great space saver/organiser.

                Could be good for the office too! Some places Ive worked would have just enough space between the desks for this to live when not in use. If only there was somewhere to lock it away at night though.
