    *Tries latte art once*...

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This duster with barista stencils to add a bit of spice to your (let’s face it otherwise very boring-looking) beverage.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Dust your hot drink with cocoa powder or cinnamon with 16 differently shaped stencils, including my personal favourite, a totally relevant and necessary panda. You can also use this multi-purpose gem to dust icing over cakes or flour over a work surface – the possibilities are endless!

    Price: £8.95

    2. These fancy-looking coffee cups that will help keep your drink hot but not burn your hands.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The double-walled borosilicate glass is not only super lightweight, it also helps keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold. The glass is also really durable: it’s scratch-resistant, dishwasher safe, and is heat resistant up to 100°C, so these glasses aren’t as delicate as they look!

    Price: £12.50 for two glasses.

    3. This set of reusable metal straws for your DIY cold brew.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    We all know that cutting down use of single-use plastic is important for the environment, and sometimes a straw just makes your drink taste better, y’know? There’s always the paper straw option but let’s face it, they turn a bit gross after about five minutes and they’re still a bit wasteful. Changing from plastic to reusable metal straws is a small step that can have a big impact in the long run.

    This non-toxic stainless steel straw set has over a thousand five-star reviews on Amazon – customers love how the straws are really comfortable to drink from (no sharp edges) and they’re super easy to clean thanks to the cleaning brushes included in the set.

    Price: £3.99 for a set of eight straws and two cleaning brushes.

    4. And this highly-rated matcha powder, if you prefer your lattes green and full of goodness.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If you have trouble with the slightly bitter taste of regular green tea, customers love how this matcha green tea has no bitter edge. This matcha powder is also great value for money compared to other brands, comes in a recyclable and reusable glass jar, and 5% of all profits from PureChimp go to charity (they also have a great vegan and cruelty-free skincare line).

    Price: £9.95

    5. This hand-made whisk will make your matcha tea frothy rather than lumpy.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This bamboo whisk is the perfect shape to get your matcha powder perfectly blended without any lumps!

    Price: £4.59

    6. These coasters will make your counter look cool when you’re not using them.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    What kind of coffee shop doesn’t have a plant made up of coasters? That's right, a boring one. These coasters slide together to make a cute and multi-functional cactus, and are made from high quality EVA material, which will soak up spilled liquids and condensation from the bottom of your glass.

    Price: £9.99

    7. Drizzle honey into your tea in style with this fancy honey dispenser.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This dispenser is really easy to use and will help you avoid the sticky mess that honey usually leaves in its wake – plus it just looks really cool.

    Price: £8.99

    8. Some pumpkin spice coffee syrup, ‘cause pumpkin spice is what Autumn is all about, TBH.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Making the gradually worsening weather that *bit* more bearable. This syrup is highly rated for its authentic taste – which is probably because it’s the syrup brand most high-street coffee chains use in their drinks. This is super sweet so the one-litre bottle will last you ages!

    Price: £10.29

    9. Use it with this syrup pump to get your PSL fix more quickly!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This pump is compatible with the one-litre Monin syrup bottles, and just the act of pumping your syrup smoothly into your latte will make you feel like a proper barista.

    Price: £5.65

    10. And this set of Monin coffee syrups if you have too many favourites to choose from.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If you’re someone who likes a different flavour of coffee for every day of the week, this set is for you.

    Price: £8.60

    11. Get the real deal with this Starbucks pumpkin spice flavoured ground coffee.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Recreate the original Starbucks pumpkin spice latte at home: these K-cup pods are compatible with Keurig coffee machines.

    Price: £24.00 for a box of 10 pods.

    12. This coffee machine is super highly-rated if you are a true coffee connoisseur.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This coffee wizard will make you feel like a pro while doing most of the hard work for you. Now, you will have to learn the barista basics to get the most out of this machine (there are lots of YouTube videos which are really helpful for this). While it’s a bit of an investment, customers have reported saving around £25 a week on buying coffee in-store, and swear that the coffee they can make with this machine is just as good (if not better) as any they can buy.

    Price: £429.00

    13. Or this much cheaper coffee machine, if you're after a no-frills coffee that still tastes amazing.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If you want a creamy latte without the hassle of frothing your own milk, you can use this machine for a decent coffee at the press of a button. Reviewers recommend trying out how long you need to keep the machine on for different styles of coffee, as you need to control the hot water flow manually.

    Price: £34.99

    14. Show off your coffee capsules with this revolving pod rack (warning: this can encourage colour-coordination on the verge of obsessive).

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This rotating rack is functional as well as aesthetically pleasing, and it’s also a great space saver, so it will help to free up the space on your kitchen counter.

    Price: £24.95

    15. Or this cute storage drawer if you want to tuck your pods away neatly.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If your kitchen is tiny, this tray can fit anywhere without taking up too much space – it even fits perfectly under smaller coffee machines. Customers also love how sturdy this is, claiming the excellent quality makes it really good value for money.

    Price: £26.95

    16. Use this milk frothing pitcher to really show off your latte art skills.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This stainless steel jug is not just a one-trick pony: it’s perfect for measuring, steaming, and serving all kinds of liquid, whether hot or cold. It also comes with a free microfibre cloth to mop up those inevitable spills, and a decorating pen, ideal for perfecting your latte art.

    Price: £8.99

    17. And finally, this cold drink blender will help you make the BEST frappés in town.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It has a powerful mixer, which will ensure there are no bits of ice left in your drink, and customers love its slim design, which won’t take up much space in your now probably quite full DIY coffee shop!

    Price: £19.95
