7 Cozy Fall Coffee Shop Drinks

I have been trying a bunch of different fall drinks this fall season! I have rounded up my top 7 fall drinks for you to try at your local or favorite chain coffee shop!
These drinks range from more classic pumpkin spice flavored drinks to apple flavors to spice flavors!

#1 Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

I typically grab this drink at Starbucks but I know some other coffee shops have tried to create a similar drink. I highly recommend trying this drink at Starbucks!
It tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup! It is cold, creamy, and sweet. If you are looking for a new spin on pumpkin drinks, definitely try this one!

#2 Harvest Spice Latte

This was such a fun and unique fall drink! I got this drink from Scout’s Café in High Bridge, NJ. This drink was light, creamy, sweet, and a hint of spice. They use an excellent espresso for their espresso-based drinks, which made this drink even more stunning—a perfect option for those looking for a fall drink that doesn’t contain pumpkin, haha.

#3 Candy Apple Chai

I got this drink at a cute little coffee shop in Dunmore, PA called Henry’s on Clay. Dang, this was a delicious drink. This drink was sweet and spicy at the same time. It tasted almost exactly like a candy apple. If you’re an apple fan over pumpkin, you need to try this drink asap!

The drink below isn’t the Candy Apple Chai!
(I couldn’t find a picture of it. But here is another one of their gorgeous drinks!)

#4 Apple Cider Steamer

Holy Moly, this drink was stunning. It tasted like a caramel apple. I got this drink at Electric City Roasting Co. in Peckville, PA.
If you are looking for a caffeine-free fall drink, THIS IS IT! This drink wowed me, and it was perfect before a full day of fall activities!

#5 Pumpkin Matcha

We can’t forget about matcha in the fall! I recommend adding a few pumps of pumpkin spice flavoring to your matcha drink. I tried this at Starbucks and was pleasantly surprised. I gravitate towards this drink on chilly mornings when I don’t want a ton of caffeine and when I want a more subtle drink.

#6 Pumpkin Spice Chai

This has been a go-to at my local coffee shop, Kay’s Daily Grind in Daleville, PA. I love the spicy flavors of chai during the fall. Adding pumpkin to chai brings it to another level. I like this drink as a cozy, everyday drink. If you are looking for a fall-themed drink with less caffeine, try this!

#7 Pumpkin Spice Latte

Classic. I’ve gotten a few PSL from my local coffee shop, Kay’s Daily Grind, in Daleville, PA. For a new spin on this classic, try a PSL at a local coffee shop instead of a chain coffee shop. Each local coffee shop has their own spin on PSL, and it will give you some variety.

My Favorite Iced Starbucks Drinks

Iced Starbucks Blonde Cocoa Cloud Macchiato 

This drink has quickly become my absolute favorite at Starbucks. This is my Treat Yo Self drink. I get it as big as I can and savor every last drop. The title may be intimidating, so I will break this drink down for you. 

Macchiato: This drink is espresso shots with flavoring and foam. That’s it! 

Blonde: This is the Blonde espresso shots at Starbucks. Whenever I get an espresso drink at Starbucks, I always get the Blonde shots. I like lighter roasted coffee and prefer the Blonde shots over the regular espresso shots. 

Cloud: This is a type of cold foam that Starbucks has for its Macchiatos, and I am obsessed with it. They use egg white powder when they make the cold foam, so it gives the foam a meringue texture. I love meringue, which means I am obsessed with this cloud foam. 

Cocoa: The Cocoa part of this Macchiato drink is a drizzle of caramel sauce and a drizzle of mocha sauce. Additionally, there are 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup. I actually trade that out for only 1 pump of vanilla syrup.

This drink tastes like heaven to me! The flavors of mocha, caramel, and vanilla definitely bring this drink to another level. 

If this drink sounds yummy to you, I would highly recommend trying this ASAP!!!! 

Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte 

I LOVE matcha. If you don’t know what matcha is, it is ground up green tea leaves and is full of antioxidants. It’s good to know that Starbucks used matcha that is sweetened with sugar. Other places that serve matcha may not add sugar to their matcha powder. 

I love the flavor of green tea! I find that this drink is very refreshing, and it has less caffeine then a coffee-based drink you would get (it still has a decent amount of caffeine though). 

For me, this drink is sweet enough, and I typically get it unsweetened. I do love vanilla flavoring with matcha. If you are looking to sweeten this drink, definitely add vanilla flavor pumps. 

Cold Brew with Cold Foam 

I love Cold Brew coffee. I also love cold foam. So any Cold Brew coffees with cold foam are right up my alley.

I tried the Irish Cream Cold Brew in December when it was out, and Woah! was it good. I love the smooth cold brew coffee mixed with the creamy flavor of the cold foam.

I am eager to try to their Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam!!

Iced Green Tea 

This has been a go-to Starbucks staple for me. I get this completely unsweetened. If you are looking for something refreshing and don’t want something sweet or super caffeinated, definitely try this! 

I would love to know your favorite iced Starbucks drinks! Let me know your favorite iced Starbucks drinks in the comments!

Top 3 Favorite Holiday Coffee Drinks

I have spent this holiday season trying new coffees! Here are my top 3 that I recommend trying before the holidays are over.

1. Irish Cream Cold Brew at Starbucks

The Irish Cream Cold Brew is a stunning take on a cold brew drink. It’s everything cozy about winter and the holidays in a cup of cold brew. I love the smoothness of cold brew so the creamy taste of the Irish Cream and the sweet cold foam really makes this drink stand out. If you’re looking for a cold holiday drink or just something not traditional, I really recommend this drink at Starbucks!

If you want to make this drink at home I found a good looking recipe here: https://bakedbree.com/copycat-irish-cream-cold-brew

2. Eggnog Latte at Frisky Goat Coffee House

This drink took me by surprise. I enjoy going to Starbucks now and then but didn’t realize they had this. I tried it at this cool local coffee shop called the Frisky Goat Coffee House in Milford, Pennsylvania. I have never loved eggnog but with the holidays underway and the new year coming up thought that it would be a neat thing to try. I was blown away by this drink! The eggnog flavor was subtle and paired very well with the espresso. I must also compliment the craftsmanship of the barista for this latte too. It was extremely well made with the perfect amount if foam for a latte.

If you are no where near the Frisky Goat Coffee House, Starbucks also has this drink. I have never tried the Starbucks version though. So until I do, it doesn’t have my stamp of approval.

If you want to make this at home, here is a recipe that looks yummy: https://www.asweetpeachef.com/eggnog-latte/

3. Peppermint Mocha Latte at Kay’s Daily Grind

The classic peppermint mocha. This is my go to holiday drink at Kay’s Daily Grind in Daleville, Pennsylvania and Starbucks. I love peppermint, chocolate, and coffee so this really is a solid go to for me. I think is captures fresh, warm, and cozy in a cup. I love the local coffee shop Kay’s Daily Grind and that is typically where I get this drink. My recommendation is to get it with have the flavoring and sweetener wherever you get it. I don’t love super sweet drinks and think it can be too powerful with full flavor. I think this drink when half sweetened is delicious yet subtle.

If you want to be cozy at home and enjoy this drink, here is a recipe: https://lifemadesweeter.com/peppermint-mocha-latte/

Even though these are my favorites this season, there a so many good coffee options out right now. I have yet to try something that tastes like gingerbread this season but I’m hoping I will soon!
