A Spot for Tea: Ideas for a Coffee Corner

Whether you're a tea or coffee drinker, there is something charming about a specific spot set up for the sole purpose of making a warm drink.  I have one of those old farmhouse kitchens where space efficiency was not high priority, and nothing fits together very well, leaving an awkward empty nook next to the stove.  However, with a bit of shelving and maybe a little dresser I think it could be the perfect nook for a tea and coffee corner.  Normally I am not a huge fan of open shelving, but it seems a shame to hide a pretty collection of coffee mugs and pretty tea tins behind cupboards, doesn't it?
