Unfortunately most of us are running around over worked, stressed, and just plain too busy to even stop to taste our coffee. We miss how wonderful this experience can be.
This instructable will show you how to set up a Coffee Battle Station to make your own coffee so you can experience your coffee, slow down and destress, and generally improve your life.

Step 1: Obtain a Station
Other furniture will work like:
or even your kitchen counter
Step 2: Purchase Quality Coffee
Which brings us to step 3...
Step 3: Get a Quality Grinder
I have the Hario Mini and it is perfect.
Step 4: Flavor Shots
You can get them online or at any bar store.
*Great for Italian sodas too.
Step 5: Place Your Tools
These pieces are all very affordable.
The ones pictured are(from R to L):

Step 6: Pour Stand
Though I would suggest having it be out as this is a great way to make coffee that forces you to slow down.
Step 7: Cold Brew
Get a Toddy cold brew kit. It's cheap, and in 24 hours you can have a full pitcher of cold brew coffee that is superior to anything you can get a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts.
Step 8: Heat Source
This is also where you can hook up your drip machine if your desire that option too (I have one and use it all the time).
*Some will swear by a goose neck pot but since you are new let's not worry about that.
Step 9: Don't Forget the Cups
Also many mismatched cups with fun things on them in all different sizes and shapes is a must.
