As the leaves turn and the air grows crisp, there's no better way to embrace the magic of fall than with a steaming cup of your favorite fall-inspired coffee drink.
At Smoking Gun Coffee, we're all about celebrating the changing seasons, and we don't turn our noses up to pumpkin spice lattes! In fact, we think we make a pretty dang good one in our Chilliwack cafe. Let's get into our favourite coffee drinks for the Fall season.
Pumpkin Spice Latte: The Ultimate Fall Classic
If there's one drink that perfectly encapsulates the essence of fall, it's the Pumpkin Spice Latte. This beloved autumnal beverage combines the rich, bold flavor of our whole bean coffee with the comforting warmth of pumpkin spice and frothy steamed milk. It's like a hug for your taste buds!
To create your own PSL masterpiece, start by brewing a strong cup of your favorite whole bean coffee. Add a dash of pumpkin spice syrup (store-bought or homemade), frothy milk, and a dollop of whipped cream. Finish it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, and you've got yourself a cozy fall companion that's perfect for sipping by the fireplace or taking on a scenic autumn stroll.
The Maple Macchiato: Sweet, Satisfying, and Oh-So-Canadian
For a fall coffee drink that's as sweet as a crisp Fall morning, the Maple Macchiato is the way to go. This delightful concoction combines the earthy goodness of our whole bean coffee with the smooth sweetness of pure maple syrup and a drizzle of caramel. It's like sipping on a cozy Canadian cabin getaway!
To make your own Maple Macchiato, brew a robust cup of coffee and mix in a generous spoonful of maple syrup. Froth some milk until it's nice and silky, and gently pour it over your coffee. For that extra touch of decadence, add a caramel drizzle on top. The result? A fall-flavored masterpiece that's sure to become a seasonal favorite.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Slush: Cool and Cozy in One Sip
When the weather is still warm but you're craving the comforting flavors of fall, the Pumpkin Spice Coffee Slush is your answer. This chilly treat combines the invigorating kick of iced whole bean coffee with the familiar taste of pumpkin spice. It's the perfect fusion of summer and autumn in a glass!
To whip up your own Pumpkin Spice Coffee Slush, start by brewing a strong cup of Smoking Gun Coffee and letting it cool. Add some ice cubes, a generous splash of pumpkin spice syrup, and a touch of milk. Blend it all together until you have a velvety-smooth coffee slushy. Pour it into a glass, and garnish with a cinnamon stick for that extra cozy touch.
Dark Roast Whole Bean Coffee: Dark Horse Coffee is Fall's Best Friend
The cooler months are also when we love to get into some darker roasts wtih more rich flavour profiles. We've had our Fireside French Roast since day one. But you might not be as familiar with our Dark Horse Dark Espresso Roast. It's designed for espresso, but makes a rich, satisfying cup of coffee if you brew it on drip too. It's quickly become one of our most popular roasts and we actually stumbled upon it by accident due to a happy little accident in our roastery.
As you cozy up to the changing seasons, these fall coffee drinks are sure to become your go-to favorites. Whether you're a fan of the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte, have a sweet tooth for the Maple Macchiato, crave the refreshing Pumpkin Spice Coffee Slush, or want a deep, dark mug of dark roast coffee, Smoking Gun Coffee has you covered with the finest whole bean coffee to make your autumn moments even more delightful.
