As the weather begins to cool down and there comes a cool crisp feeling in the air, coffee drinkers begin to feel a shift in their taste buds. Instead of feeling satisfied with a simple vanilla latte or cold brew with milk, they shift to more cozy flavors, like pumpkin spice lattes, and cold foam with cinnamon. Now that it’s just about fall, Starbucks has come back with their famous, mouth watering fall menu. Keep reading to find out which fall treats are worth picking up this sweater weather season.
Pumpkin Creme Cold Brew
This is a fan favorite, and for good reason. The pumpkin creme cold brew is a fall classic that
is made with Starbucks Cold Brew, vanilla, and topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam (that has has real pumpkin in it) and some sprinkled cinnamon for a little extra flavor. This drink has both pumpkin spice latte lovers and cold brew drinkers rushing to their neighborhood Starbucks. One of my favorite elements of this drink is that it is not overwhelmingly pumpkin spiced. It has a light flavor and more of a neutral taste, that makes it loved my many. This drink is my personal favorite at Starbucks. I have dreamt of it since it came off the menu in winter, and am in coffee heaven now that it’s back.

Apple Crisp Macchiato
I recently tried the apple crisp macchiato, and I must say I am a fan. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about an apple flavor in coffee, but it is surprising very good. While the pumpkin creme cold brew has a lighter flavor, this drink is a bit stronger and therefore not going to be loved by everyone. As soon as I took a sip I felt fully engulfed in sweater season. The flavor reminds me of eating sweet apple pie by the fire while sipping on freshly brewed coffee. Although the flavor is strong, it is not overdone and as the weather gets cooler, I think I will be reaching for it more.

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Blended
This frappuccino fully embodies fall. Starbucks describes it as having “pumpkin plus traditional fall spice flavors, blended with coffee, milk, and ice and topped with whipped cream and pumpkin-pie spice.” If you are looking for fall to smack you across the face, this is the drink for you. I personally am not a major fan of strong, spiced flavors, so this did not score as highly as the others for me.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin
This will definitely be my fall muffin of choice. The base is a delicious pumpkin flavor (tastes like pumpkin bread) and is topped with a delicious cream cheese filling and sprinkling of chopped, spiced pepitas. Chew on this while sipping on a hot pumpkin coffee, and find yourself in Autumn dreams.
