We’re pretty big fans of good coffee any time of year, but there’s just something extra comforting about enjoying a hot drink in the morning or afternoon on a chilly fall day. Besides being a warm, enjoyable experience, fall is a particularly great time for delicious seasonal flavours that you might not think of trying the rest of the year!
Check out these delicious DIY fall coffee recipes that will make for great warm treats over good conversation this fall.
1. Salted caramel mocha latte
Sometimes all a delicious creamy latte needs is the addition of a simple sweet flavour to take it to the next level. Caramel might be one that you have occasionally over the course of the year, but we find we forget it’s an option sometimes! In the fall, however, there are plenty of other seasonal caramel things to remind you how good it is, and salted caramel is particularly popular as the weather gets chillier (which makes us incredibly glad). If you love nothing more than a salty-sweet combination then this coffee treat from Inside Brew Crew life is the one for you!
2. Iced pumpkin spice latte
General consensus is that one of the most exciting parts of fall coming is the return of pumpkin spiced things, particularly pumpkin spice lattes! A Cozy Kitchen reminds you that not every fall day is super cold, though, so a hot drink might actually make you a little too toasty. If that’s the case where you live, try this iced version of the classic latte flavour instead!
3. Mexican mocha
A Spicy Perspective guides you through the process of making a delicious cocoa with a little extra kick! By adding cinnamon and a blend of spices you can easily give your cocoa a unique flavour (and even add espresso if you choose). Prepare for hints of nutmeg and cayenne pepper on top of the cinnamon!
4. Honey Bee Latte
Perhaps you’re looking for some sweetness in your latte that’s a little more natural than flavours like vanilla or caramel? Honey is a great option for achieving the taste without just adding straight up sugar and overdoing it. It’s subtle and delicious, especially in the fall. Check it out on Five and Spice!
5. Vegan caramel frappe
Creamy milk based drinks are yummy, but they’re not always diet friendly for people with certain food restrictions. Perhaps you’re lactose intolerance or maybe you’re trying to stick to a vegan lifestyle? Don’t worry! Minimalist Baker has you covered when it comes to a vegan alternative. Here’s a delicious vegan caramel frappe recipe for warmer fall days when you just really need a coffee treat.
6. Creamy mocha hot chocolate
Oh She Glows reminds you how great a simple mocha latte can be, but in the fall when cocoa is so popular, sometimes it’s nice to have a treat that’s a little more chocolatey! This recipe still tastes creamy and delicious if you made it with milk substitutes to account for dietary needs.
7. Salted caramel pumpkin latte
Maybe, as you’re reading this list, all you can think about is how good some of these flavours would taste as a combination together? We don’t blame you, as we’ve been doing the exact same thing! This recipe perfectly blends salted caramel and pumpkin spice in a way that makes our mouths water. Get the details from Inside Brew Crew Life!
8. Pumpkin spiced latte
Sometimes a classic is just too good to pass up, especially if it’s seasonal. Going to the coffee shop every day (maybe even more than once) can be pricey though, especially if you’re getting a fancy flavoured latte each time. Instead, make your own at home! Averie Cooks shows you how to make your autumn the most delicious thing ever.
9. Dirty Chai latte
Speaking of classics, Chai lattes can be made with or without espresso, but we’re pretty big fans of the “with” option! Because espresso costs more in stores, though, this delicious option is another one that will rack up your bill if you buy one every day. Five and Spice is here to show you how to make your own so you can enjoy as many fall flavoured lattes as you please!
10. Pumpkin frappucino
Do you live somewhere warm where a hot drink in the fall might actually make you feel too warm rather than pleasantly cozy? Then frappes are the perfect thing for you! You’ll get all the caffeine and flavour of a regular fall latte but without the heat. Here’s a pumpkin spice version from Minimalist Baker.
11. Autumn spiced toddy
You’ve probably heard the same as we have that a hot toddy can fix you right up when you have a cold. The taste of the classic germ fighting drink, however, really isn’t everyone’s thing. Instead, make it a fall treat by adding a little extra flavour in the form of seasonal fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves mixed with cold brew coffee. Check out the recipe on Ari’s Menu.
12. Pistachio rose latte
Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a classic treat like a flavoured latte but with an unconventional twist. Instead of more expected fall flavours like salted caramel and pumpkin spice, try floral or nut combinations like this pistachio rose recipe from LA Weekly.
13. Autumn delight coffee
Do you like the idea of autumn spices in coffee but lattes aren’t really your taste? Many people find them too dense and creamy, especially in the morning. Just in case that’s you, here’s a seasonal fall coffee option from Food.com that tastes just like the other fall coffees we’ve listed but without all the heavy dairy.
14. Autumn spiced brown sugar maple latte
Maybe you’re the complete opposite of the anti-diary coffee drinker we just described above? Then boy do we have the ultimate sweet and creamy fall coffee drink for you! Not only is this latte made with milk and topped with whipped cream, but it’s also chalk full of autumn spices, brown sugar, and maple! Your Coffee Breakhas a list of sweet and creamy ingredients for you.
15. Bavarian mint coffee
Are dessert coffees like the ones you might find in the back of the menu at a fancy restaurant your very favourite? We’re pretty big fans of gourmet options too. We recommend this delicious Bavarian mint latte featured on Blinds 2 Go! It’s a coffee and a sweet treat all in one and we can hardly think of anything better.
