Not just any coffee. Fall flavors, at Starbucks. Even at the beach, there’s something so fulfilling in a cup of fall-themed coffee to start a morning.
It’s tough to go wrong with anything on the menu. But here are a few favorites that are sure to leave a warm, lasting impression.
Did you know … Starbucks announces its fall drink lineup in late summer? It’s become an anticipated event!
How about some spice with that sweet? We’re talking hot spice, not pumpkin, in this case. It’s a jolt of a different kind, with hints of ancho and cayenne chiles. With notes of cocoa, cinnamon, and vanilla, you have a delicious beginning to any day.
Cinnamon Dolce Latte
It’s a year-round offering, but it lands best for chilly days in the most cinnamon ways. It’s a latte with cinnamon dolce syrup, with a whipped cream and cinnamon sugar topping. Make an extra sweet move and request a couple of pumps of white mocha sauce. Ah, rich.
Maple Pecan Latte
This one’s been a hit since its debut in 2017, a blend of espresso, maple syrup, pecan, and brown butter. Add a sugar topping and you have a delicious fall indulgence. Its star is still rising.
Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
Fall doesn’t have to be all cuddles and mittens. This beverage is a welcome alternative to the milky lattes. It’s sweetened with vanilla syrup (or pumpkin spice syrup — just ask your barista nicely.) The pumpkin-infused cream cold foam topping is heavenly. The pumpkin spice sprinkles take the topping over the top.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
In the Carolinas, there are harbingers of fall: Barbecue, football, and pumpkin-spice ANYTHING. It’s been a headliner since 2004, a swoony espresso with steamed milk and real pumpkin. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and whipped cream. We swear it’ll taste like your grandma’s pumpkin pie — in a coffee cup.
Salted Caramel Mocha
A phenomenon nearly of the ilk of pumpkin spice, salted caramel is the real deal. It exists a bit in the Pumpkin Spice Latte’s shadow but has its own following. Imagine toffee nut syrup and mocha, with coffee and milk. As if that’s not enough: Brown sugar and sea salt. Sweet, and savory, and the official soundtrack to fall for your tastebuds.
How to Spice up Your Favorite Drink at Starbucks This Fall
For something chill: Order the Pumpkin Spice Macchiato iced, with pumpkin spice in place of vanilla syrup.
For something warm: Order the Pumpkin Spice Doubleshot On Ice but request three pumps of pumpkin spice sauce and a dash of 2% milk.
