What are the Top Airbnb Coffee Station Ideas to WOW Your Vacation Rental Guests?
Be sure to add these functional crowd pleasers to your Airbnb’s kitchen to make your guests feel like baristas for the day!
Large Coffee Stations for Your Airbnb
If you’ve got space to work with, consider adding a larger coffee space by making use of a pre-made stand like this one. Technically billed as a “microwave holder”, this functional unit would work great to create a spectacular coffee bar.
I like that it has several shelving heights which add a lot of visual interest. The pullout drawer would be great for holding extra bags of coffee, sugar, and other supplies while the hooks on the side can hold a lot of cute mugs.

Coffee Stations for Smaller Spaces
If your kitchen needs something smaller in scale, one of these ubiquitous rolling carts (à la IKEA cart) will work just fine as well. Super affordable, these don’t take up a ton of space in your home or budget and look great just about anywhere.
Again, the three shelves offer plenty of space to store extra supplies, and the top one can be outfitted with a simple flat piece of wood to make it into more of a countertop.

Coffee Station Condiment Bar
Once you’ve found where you’ll put your coffee setup, your next purchase should be a condiment bar. While you can make your own by using a variety of nice containers, I like that this one is self-contained and has spots for just about anything.
If you opt not to offer individual packets of things, you can still use it to organize small jars holding sugar, straws, and stir sticks.
Rental Recon Tip: Making your Airbnb as homey as possible is what will earn you top reviews and keep your guests coming back for more. After you’ve secured the ultimate coffee station, ask yourself what else you can do to make your guests feel safe and cozy. Maybe it’s finding the right color palette, expanding natural lighting sources, or changing up the fabrics in the living spaces.
Coffee Mug Organizer
I like that this stylish mug organizer hangs on the wall like a piece of homemade art. It helps tie together the kitchen space and makes the designated coffee station feel a little bit more “official”.
If you opt for a display organizer like this one, make sure your mugs stand out as well! You can use a classic all-white set to keep things simple, or show off your eclectic mug collection to guests.
- FARMHOUSE DÉCOR: A distressed, weathered design keep an element of nature in your home. With a farmhouse look that fits in beautifully with any decor. The white color looks so cleanliness, and peacefulness.
- VOID COLLISION DAMAGE: The space between the mug hooks measure approximately 5 inches from center to center, there is no need to worry about damage caused by the collision between café cups.
- STURDY & DURABLE: Made of solid pine wood to guarantee the sturdiness and consistent aesthetic beauty of the design. All hooks are made of high-quality metal to keep your coffee mugs securely in place.
A Coffee Maker that Every Host Should Consider…
A Keurig is a household staple nowadays. Guests love how easy it is for them to pop in a K-cup and enjoy a hot cup of coffee in minutes. Hosts love them because they’re easy to clean and hard to break!
I personally love how you can stock lots of different flavored pods to use so that there’s always something that someone will like. Just be sure to keep up on topping off the water reserve and cleaning regularly.

K-Cup Holder to Display Your Variety of Coffees
I use a K-cup carousel like this one to display my coffee pod offerings to guests. It’s almost like a decorative item because it shows off all the fun, brightly colored packaging. Also, everyone loves spinning it around!
The downside to having your K-cups on display is that you have to make sure they’re well-stocked at all times or it starts to look a little wonky. It’s not too big of an issue, though, and your guests will definitely appreciate your effort.
- COFFEE POD CAROUSEL: This Nifty carousel is compatible with K-Cups and stylishly showcases up to 35 of your favorite coffee pods. The lazy Susan base platform revolves and spins 360-degrees, which makes it simple and convenient to find and choose your preferred flavor.
- MODERN DESIGN: The modern, black powder-coated design looks fantastic on the countertop in the kitchen, your dorm room, or in the office coffee bar. Even the heaviest of coffee drinkers will want this carousel to easily brew a cup of coffee.

Any coffee drinker knows that airtight storage for ground coffee is a must-have. This container looks great and is ultra-durable, so it’s perfect for your Airbnb’s coffee station. It hold 16 volumetric ounces, which is a large enough amount that you won’t have to be constantly refilling it but not so large that the coffee will get stale before it’s all gone.
It’s available in several attractive colors like black, blue, stainless steel, and even rose gold! It also comes with a handy measuring spoon and a one-way carbon dioxide valve to keep things extra-fresh.

Fun, Durable Mugs to Add Some Pizzazz to Your Rental
I try and use restaurant-quality mugs in my Airbnb. I don’t like having to replace things after just a few bookings, and so much ceramic wear just isn’t built to withstand heavy-duty use.
I try and find durable and fun accent mugs that have character and are closely tied to my home’s location and theme. Here are a couple examples of cabin and beach themed mugs.
