All I can say is that if it weren’t for coffee and my home coffee bar, I don’t know how I’d get through most days lately. I’m usually so busy during the daytime that I’m more than ready to get to sleep at night. However,I have the hardest time staying asleep all night. My mind is always so busy thinking about everything that I need to get done that I don’t wake up feel refreshed at all. Having a cup of coffee and a bite of a sweet treat first thing in the morning powers me up and helps get me through the day.
A few months ago I was #gifted a new coffee maker from Hamilton Beach called the Scoop Coffeemaker which prompted me to set up a coffee bar. This little machine is pretty unique in that it brews ground coffee rather than pods. It can actually brew a delicious cup of coffee in less than 90 seconds. The coffee maker has two different brew size options. It makes either an 8 ounce or 14 ounce travel mug size without using K-cup pods or disposable filters. It even has the option for a regular or a bold brew with the touch of a button.
The machine is genius and so easy to use. Simply use the scoop to measure out your favorite ground coffee, put it in the machine (no filter needed) and press start. I confess that I like my coffee sweet and creamy. I buy all sort of creamers and flavored syrups so I always have the perfect cup of coffee to go with my mood (or my food). It’s like having my own little coffee bar setup right in the corner of my kitchen.
I’m kinda feeling like a barista these days enjoying my coffee at home out on my patio in the morning. I love the sleek stainless steel design of the Scoop Coffee Maker. It’s a nice compact size that doesn’t take up too much room on my small kitchen counter. Since I no longer need to purchase pods or K-cups using this machine, I’m saving a ton of money. My cup of coffee costs me just pennies a serving and it tastes great too!
I’ve been making all sorts of little sweets to go with my morning coffee, including healthy versions of banana bread and homemade granola. Let me know if you have any good recipes to share.
Check out this pretty little coffee maker at Walmart or online so you can be a home barista too and make all sorts of quick morning creations or afternoon pick-me-ups.

I have this machine, and it is great. I confess that I haven’t used it in quite a while because we use our French Press most days, but I definitely don’t know how i would get through the day with out a couple of great cups of coffee!
So many options for making a good cup of coffee! Stacie xo

Oh, this is a one cup coffee maker? It’s very attractive, and I love all the options you have with it. I am not a fan of K-cup pods since they end up in landfills, so this Hamilton Beach coffeemaker is better in so many ways.

Nice looking coffee maker. I must be the only person in America that doesn’t drink coffee.

Haha! No, I know a few people who also don’t like coffee. I didn’t start drinking it until I was almost 40. Stacie xo

We have a coffee bar too! ❤️ Our tip is to use a teaspoon of ghirardelli ground white chocolate powder instead of sugar. It can be purchased on Amazon. For our latte we use A capful of monin macadamia nut syrup and the ghirardelli powder. ❤️
I’m SOLD! Going to get those ground white chocolate powder. YUM! Stacie xo
No coffee for me but my husband loves it and is always taking his mug with him. This would be so much more attractive on my counter than the one he has.

We have a home coffee bar set up for my husband and he loves it. I didn’t know that Yeti made coffee cups though, going to need to get one of those!
