Hospitality tutorial

Set up a Home Coffee Bar

Made-over credenza serves double duty: coffee bar and kitchen storage

Last fall I ready a blog post by Kathi Lipp, one of my favorite bloggers. In it she talked about the importance of hospitality in friendship. (See the original post here~  Many people equate hospitality with a good cup of coffee, accent on the good.  At first I dismissed the notion, after all I am not a coffee drinker. I have had exactly 3 cups of coffee in my entire life, counting the Styrofoam cup that my sister Marti, cousin Melissa, and I shared at a doughnut shop one rainy Saturday when we were 8, 9, and 10 respectively).  But the thought would not be dismissed so easily; my family loves coffee, my friends love coffee… My thoughts kept turning back to the idea.  By now Christmas was approaching and I decided a home cafe would make a lovely family gift.
