K Cup Holder

Let's be real: One thing that every homeowner who likes coffee wants is to have a part of their home that feels like it's straight out of a coffeeshop. A little coffee corner with mugs, a coffee machine, and even little espresso or coffee pods - it just makes you excited, right? It's a little part of your home that's dedicated to your favorite beverage - and to making your life easier in the mornings.

One essential part of your coffee corner has to be an attractive, reliable K-cup holder. Keurigs are without a doubt the easiest type of coffeemaker to use: Just plug in a K-cup, and within a few minutes you'll have delicious coffee. No need to mess around with filters or beans or grounds; the entire experience is seamless.

A K-cup corral or organization caddy just makes the experience even easier - which, honestly, is what you need in the mornings before you have your coffee!

When you're looking for a holder to house your collection of K-cup pods, you need to think about a few different things. Some K-cup holder designs make your life easier by fitting in very nicely around your Keurig machine or stacking underneath, allowing you to make the most of your counter space. Others go all-in on the cafe-style appeal, showcasing a rotary shelf of your favorite coffee pods so you can always have exactly the style of coffee you want.

Here are a few factors you'll want to consider when you're looking for this type of kitchen accessory:

  • The number of pods you can hold. How many K-cups do you use each day? Are you the only one in your household who drinks coffee, or are multiple people using multiple pods? You'll want to avoid having to fill up the holder each day, so selecting a larger one for family use or a smaller one for single use will make the most of your storage and energy levels.

  • The material you use. Your K-cup holder may go in your kitchen, which means that it'll be in the same area as food and liquid messes. Selecting a material that's easy to clean - plastic or metal, say, instead of wood - will only serve to make your life a lot easier.

  • The aesthetic appeal. If you're going for a coffeeshop vibe, selecting a retro frame or one that blends in nicely with your kitchen's natural coloring will only make you happier every time you see it.

  • Ease of use. Think about it: By definition, you'll be using this caddy before you've had your daily java. Make sure that it's easy to open or sort through to avoid as much pre-caffeine frustration as possible!
