No matter the weather, time, or place, you will never catch me without a coffee in hand! It’s essential, I swear. When I drink my first coffee of the day, I am capable of just about anything. Now that the leaves are changing, the air is brisk, and it’s time to pull out your sweaters, it’s also time to switch up your coffee order. Over the past couple of months, I have consistently been an iced cold brew girl with a splash of skim (or low-fat) milk. Boring, I know. However, with the fall pumpkin spice fad resurfacing, I had to find a way to incorporate it into my everyday coffee. This week, I’m sharing with you my recent favorite coffee orders!


1. iced cold brew with a splash of skim, one pump of pumpkin spice flavor shot, and pumpkin cold foam ….. yum. 
2. Hot or iced apple crisp macchiato –  an ESSENTIAL treat when it gets colder out. Thank me later. 
3. iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso w/ one pump of pumpkin spice syrup
4. Hot caramel apple spice (a wayyyyy better version of apple cider. so. good.)

Although I primarily focused on my Starbucks options, it is important to remember that you can recreate these drinks just about anywhere. Dunkin has a wide variety of pumpkin flavored treats alongside many cold foams for your cold brew! Also, for us Worcester residents, Birchtree has it all! Their coffee is from Acoustic Java, another fan favorite for many here on the hill. The cold brew, iced lattes, and chai tea are a must this fall :)
