What do most of us do every day — and, let’s be honest, many times a day? Yes, drink a nice cup of coffee or tea. Now, how many of us have a designated coffee cart in our homes? Crickets. That’s what I thought. Why not give the ritual we hold so dear a platform to live on? IKEA’s RÅSKOG cart proves its usefulness once again.

3 Tips for Setting Up Your RÅSKOG Cart Coffee Station

  • Prioritize your coffee maker: When arranging the cart for the perfect cup of joe, keep the top shelf relatively open for a French press, Chemex pour over, or, perhaps, a single-cup brewing system.

  • Keep beans and teas below: Store your impressive collection of beans and tea below; explore airtight glass and metal canisters for storage to avoid a sea of similar boxes and bags — and also to keep your beans and leaves fresh.
  • Make your cart play host: You can also switch up the use of the cart for serving when hosting guests. A pitcher or carafe of milk and small vase of flowers alongside your oh-so-special china will set the scene for an idyllic afternoon tea. Your friends and family can sit back and relax as the coffee rolls on by.
