When fall time comes around and the chilly weather starts to roll in, there are few things we love more than a tasty warm drink. We love all kinds of hot beverages but we find that because our work schedules are so busy in the fall, when everyone is just starting to gear up for the holidays, there’s one kind of drink that takes the cake above all others: coffee! As much as we love a simple, everyday coffee with some milk and a bit of sugar, it’s nice to treat ourselves every once in a while. Fall is a time of seasonal aromas and amazing taste blends and we see no reason not to incorporate the autumn elements we love best into just about any aspect of our lives that we can. That’s why we’ve been so obsessed with fall flavoured coffees lately!
Just in case the idea of a sweet, flavoured beverage that really satisfies your craving for both a treat and caffeine appeals to you as much as it does to us, here’s a list of 15 of our very favourite fall coffee recipes that somehow magically just taste better around this time of year.
1. Fall cinnamon pumpkin blend
If you ask us, cinnamon is definitely a fall flavour, especially when it comes to coffee. We’re not sure why we feel that way precisely, since there are plenty of other cinnamon flavoured things that we drink and eat all year long, but coffee and cinnamon in the fall just makes sense to us! Add to that pumpkin, which is undeniably the champion of the autumn season, and you’ve got a thoroughly fall flavour that can hardly be beat. Coffee Cow shows you how to make an awesome latte using these two flavours, topping it with whipped cream and fall sprinkles.
2. Salted caramel latte
Just like cinnamon, caramel is one of those flavours that we enjoy all year round, but really enjoy in the fall. We love the way it sweetens the coffee perfectly so that we don’t need to add any sugar, but without making it too sweet so that the drink tastes overwhelming. Refinery 29, however, suggests adding a salted element to that to really offset the taste of the caramel in a complementary way. We like making our salted caramel drinks into creamy lattes.
3. Pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream and fresh cinnamon
By now, we’ve all heard of the wonder of pumpkin spice lattes in the fall thanks to big, delicious coffee shop chains and their recipe trend catching on, and boy are we ever glad it did. Sometimes, however, it’s nice to enjoy your favourite coffee in the comfort of your own home, especially in the morning! That’s why we were glad to find a homemade recipe so that we can make our own versions of whenever we please. People Food guides you through the process of making an aromatic pumpkin spice latte topped with whipped cream and cinnamon.
4. Caramel chocolate hazelnut latte
We’ve already told you how much we love caramel, but that’s not the only sweet flavour we love in a fall coffee or latte! Chocolate and hazelnut taste absolutely delicious in coffee as well and we enjoy them in our drinks all the time too but until recently, we’d never thought of combining them with other things! Imagine how intrigued we were, then, when we first came across this caramel, chocolate, and hazelnut latte recipe from Life Through Preppy Glasses! It’s an awesome way to get a lot of flavour and even some sweetness without making things too sweet. We’ve tried this recipe made with almond milk before as well and we highly recommend it!
