A lot of people have been staying at home since the pandemic started and some have spruced up their WFH (work from home) setup or have set up their own coffee nook. A coffee nook or a coffee station varies depending on the person: some like to keep it simple while others like to have options when it comes to the brewing method, coffee beans, milk, and add-ons.
