As a mom, coffee is an essential part of my day. There is nothing better then getting the kids off to school each morning and sitting down with a nice, hot cup of coffee and relaxing before the craziness of the day begins, especially in the fall. Even though by the time I actually get to sit down to enjoy that cup, my day has already started and the morning has been full of getting two boys dressed, fed, cleaned up, and out the door. But, it gives me that opportunity to relax after a hectic morning and prepare for a crazy day, especially with the help of our favorite coffee Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series® and International Delight® Coffee Creamer.

With coffee not only being a staple for my days, it also is a must have for my husband. His commute is 45 minutes each way and even though his drive is quite grueling, I know he really enjoys having his favorite cup of coffee in hand during the drive. With us both hitting the kitchen in the morning to get our day started, our set up for our coffee was not functioning well. We have an old worn out Christmas canister to hold our coffee grounds, large over-sized bottles to hold mix ins, and our counter was jammed-packed. Having to wait to get my coffee was not an option!

I knew I needed to update the area but I wasn't sure how or what I could do. One day I was shopping and came across the cutest mason jar pumps that I knew were perfect!!! I decided I had enough and cleaned it out! I had to start over and just got rid of everything.

The farmhouse themed home decor movement is all the rage right now and I love the style! So, I picked up 4 mason jar pumps, I am sure they were supposed to be used for soap, but I couldn't pass these up. They are perfect for our mix-ins and now we could get rid of the big bulky store bottles.

To keep the mason jar theme going, I placed our Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series® coffee grounds into a large jar. I painted the lid and added a decorative knob to give it a fun twist.

If I would have known how easy it was to turn our kitchen counter into a functional kitchen coffee station, I would have done this years ago! Adding in a cute sugar bowl (not the bag of sugar) and some travel cups for my husbands drive to work, makes our coffee station function for the both of us.

Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series® and International Delight® Coffee Creamer adds the perfect finishing touch in our coffee station. The caramel coffee cake makes a perfect fall drink. Even though here in Texas it's still 90 degrees in October, a Frosted Caramel Mocha Iced Coffee is a perfect treat I can enjoy any time of the day. Wanna make your own frosty coffee treat? Just use Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series® Caramel Coffee cake and make your coffee as normal, but pour over ice. Place in a blender to mix until smooth. Add in International Delight® Coffee Creamer Salted Caramel Mocha. Top with whipped cream, chocolate and caramel syrup. 

So the next time your ready to update your kitchen counter into a coffee station, follow our simple steps to create your own coffee area and then head to your neighborhood Kroger to stock up on your coffee essentials like Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series® and International Delight® Coffee Creamer
