Although we've had a little 'coffee nook' at home in a small counter space between our built-in oven/microwave and the refrigerator, I've never had an organizer that holds coffee condiments like sweeteners, creamers or sugar because we don't use them.
We do however use travel mugs and lids sometimes and typically they were stacked in a single stack tucked behind the iCoffee brewer in the photo. I've always loved the look of the wood coffee organizers you see in coffee houses, but it's never been a priority to get one for my own home. It's been a 'oh cool, I'd love to have that...' thought but I never really felt the need to part with the money to get one. I guess maybe I thought they were more expensive than they really are.
Next month we are hosting a large number of house guests, many of whom are coffee drinkers. It was the perfect time to prioritize one of my 'someday' wishes... and get my coffee organizer!
The one I bought is a 6 compartment version. I liked the bigger style with more compartments but this one was perfect for what I had pictured and the space I wanted to put it in.

It is bamboo, so it's not extremely thick wood and the two pieces of the top and bottom compartments are glued and stapled together at the factory where it's made, but when mine arrived it had broke apart. A little wood glue and weight to hold it in place while it dried fixed it good as new.
I've had nothing but compliments and 'ooh's and ahh's' about it since I put it in the kitchen and I absolutely love it. We don't use the creamers or sweetener packets, but my guests will. Once they are gone I will probably just fill all three bottom compartments with k-cups.
If wood, natural or 'brown' isn't your thing, it also comes in black.
For those of you wondering what the flavored coffee foam in the pump container in the center is, it's just a fun little flavored addition I thought my guests would enjoy. I don't like flavored hot coffee but I love this on my homemade iced coffee! It's Jordan's Skinny Gourmet whipped foam topping and I bought the Birthday Cake flavor - which I use my "birthday cake flavored ice coffee" along with a dash of sugar free vanilla. OHH SO GOOD. There are so many flavors available too! You can find them online Amazon (link below) or sometimes you can stumble across them in stores like TJMaxx. I decided on Birthday Cake flavor, but I also bought the rainbow Unicorn Sweet and Sour version to use in lemonade.

This is the one I bought with 6 compartments but there are SO many other versions, styles and colors available.

Like this 7 compartment version that is longer but not as wide and works for smaller spaces.

And the 3 tiered upright version which I would have gotten for our space, except I wanted the cup holder.

Love this one! One of my adult kids is crushing on 'my' organizer. If I give in and give it to her, this is the one I'll probably replace it with.
