Espresso Machines For Your Coffee Bar

Happy morning from Ruthie's Brew! As we get ready for the spring festivities here in our home a thought has occurred.... is your coffee bar prepared for all the fun to come along with it? Here are some coffee bar ideas to make your home complete. 

So we're here today to help you find the best additions to your coffee bar and what makes sense for you to help create your very own coffee bar space! 

There are plenty of design styles out there whether you are a minimalist, seasonal, modern, chic, industrial, or even if you’re a DIYer… if that is even a word! Opportunities are endless when it comes to your own space so don’t hold back any creativity you have. 

We’d like to think everything starts with(drum roll please)… THE COFFEE! Ask yourself the simple question, how do I like my coffee? Growing up I have only ever known one way of making coffee. Would you be surprised to know that growing up we only ever made coffee out of the pot on the stove? Who would have thunked(I mind as well keep making words up along the way)!

Anyhow, let’s just jump right into it. Whether you’re an espresso, K-cup, or auto drip type is what makes all the difference unless you’re really hardcore and have all of the above…. that's the fun part. 

Now this next part is for all the beginners who are just getting into using the different machines out there, cause we all have to start somewhere right? Lets keep it simple if you like lattes from Starbucks then you'll surely want an espresso machine, am I right?

With a contemporary and compact design that makes this perfect for your modern kitchen, the De'Longhi Stilosa Manual Espresso Machine is a great place to start to learn to use an espresso machine simply because it is just simple. Equipped with 1 to 2 serving sizes, milk frother, 15 bar pump which is the optimal pressure to extract a single or double espresso, so your coffee drink comes out perfectly rich every time.

If you do not have a lot of space to work with in your home then the De'Longhi Stilosa Manual Espresso Machine is perfect and storage for the accessories are super easy. Taking up about the same space as your average 12 cup auto drip machine.

Most people love a single serve cup especially that is already pre-measured out for you. So it is no surprise that the Keurig K-Mini Plus Single Serve Pod fits in perfectly on this list and its a no mess k-cup style so just toss it out right after!

 Now for those who are a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to their coffee and love to experiment then we have a The NEO by Flair Espresso - An all manual lever espresso maker. At our house we like to call that “ brawns over brains” … get it? See for yourself exactly what we mean!

The best part is no electricity or pods so you’ll never have to worry about looking for a plug or the expensive costs of pod replacements. With only a four step process what could exactly go wrong? With its slim and sleek stainless steel fixture, it works perfect for those industrial metal on wood style coffee bars!


Now a coffee bar is not complete without a pour over coffee maker, simple & easy to use with no complications. We definitely recommend a pour over with a reusable filter lining cause we like to do our part to save the world one less consumable at a time.

We’re going to smack right now with three different types of pour overs, you deserve to be spoiled with all this knowledge!

So the pour over with a plastic reusable filter can get a bit worn after times use, but will always get the job done. They may not be as sturdy as a ceramic or metal filter but they are also easily replaceable.

Now a ceramic single serve is perfect because you don't get a plastic or metal flavor but does require you to use a paper filter lining inside.

    This stainless steel reusable filter is the perfect size for a single cup... you know, when you don't want to share. 

    Something to keep in mind when styling your space is that it is always going to change and you are always going to want to keep adding more and so will we ! stay tuned for another post going deeper into the tools you use.
