If you're looking for a way to control the gadget clutter sprawling around your espresso machine this simple DIY station made from IKEA parts — completely with built-in knock-box and under-machine storage — should do the trick.
Jonathan Simon was tired of coffee-brewing clutter cramping his espresso slinging style. He took a $US50 IKEA kitchen cart, arranged his gear on it to test the fit, and then cut out a drop-in slot for his espresso knock-box. He positioned the knock-box so that not only was it easy to knock in used grounds but the spilled coffee grounds from the grinder fell into it too. Check out the video above to see the build process and the finished result.
