Are you crazy about caffeine? Do you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, firing up your Mr. Coffee® Advanced Brew 5-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker in eager anticipation of your next delicious cup of joe? If the answer is yes, you have no doubt invested in some of the fantastic coffee makers and products available from Mr. Coffee, and you surely own a number of items that speak to your love of all things java - t-shirts, mugs, dish towels and even jewelry, the list is endless!

But did you know that it's also possible to decorate your kitchen space to reflect your coffee fandom? Indeed, there are so many fantastic ways to develop a kitchen decor that speaks to your love affair with coffee. Take a look at some of the best ideas for café-themed kitchen decorations below:

1. Clear Bottles Filled with Coffee Beans
For this simple yet effective approach to kitchen decor, simply procure a selection of clear bottles and fill each with coffee beans. You can use the bottles for storing coffee beans that you are going to use or just for decoration. Either way, the appearance of coffee jars lined up on your kitchen counters can add a chic, coffee shop-inspired look to your kitchen space. Also consider adding decorations to the bottles - you could design labels or add twine to make the bottles pop out even more.

2. Coffee Colors
If you are looking to complete a more extensive decor renovation, consider painting your kitchen in colors inspired by your favorite cup of joe. Coffee-infused accents usually take the form of earth tones or neutral colors - think plenty of light brown, dark brown, white and beige. These shades can combine to reflect the creamy cappuccinos or frothy mochas that you live for. 

3. Coffee Cups on Display
Another way to capture that coffee shop feel is to keep your mugs out on display. Consider investing in some floating shelves to store a variety of coffee mugs, or simply arrange them along your kitchen counters or your multi-purpose kitchen island. A solid mug holder can bring the design together in an organized way.

4. Books and Magazines
Nothing pairs quite as well with an aromatic and flavorful cup of coffee than a good book or magazine. After all, it's not coincidence that a number of leading book stores boast coffee shops inside. To recreate this literary feel at home, simply add books to your current shelves, or even add new book shelves. 

5. Coffee Signage
A number of stores and online retailers sell coffee-themed signage and other designs that could be a perfect way to show guests just how much you love a wonderfully brewed cup of java. Examples of great signage found online include a clock with a coffee cup design, for example, as well as humorous signs that contain taglines such as "This home runs on love, laughter and lots of strong coffee" and "Coffee keeps me busy until it's acceptable to drink wine." Simple, funny, warm and welcoming, coffee-inspired wall art is a great way to highlight a caffeine-inspired kitchen space.

6. Plenty of Greenery
Many coffee shops incorporate plants into their aesthetic, which helps create an earthy vibe, reflective of the natural origins of our favorite coffee beans. No need to go overboard, as just a few green plants can keep your caffeine-inspired space feeling fresh, bright and natural.

7. Chalk Boards
Another way to capture that local coffee shop feel is to make use of a chalk board. Chalkboards can hang anywhere and can be found at most home goods retailers. The chalk board can be used to celebrate your love of coffee: Consider making a mini-menu, for example, listing some the cappuccino and latte beverages available from your Mr. Coffee® Pump Espresso Maker, or add some quotes from your favorite books to enhance a literary theme.
