Autumn… ahhhh it’s the best season! The weather is cooling off, yet there is still a feeling of warmth about it. With fall leaves comes fall flavors to savor, and I am so ready. Pumpkins, apples, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, and cranberries – there’s no shortage of fall tastes to love!

5 warm fall coffee flavors to try this season
1. Spice-infused coffee with maple syrup
With fall comes so many lovely spices, and they are absolutely delicious in coffee. Try mixing cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, and thyme in with your coffee grounds before brewing and tell me what you think about it. Replace sugar with maple syrup for a delicious fall inspired twist.
2. Apple cinnamon flavored coffee
Apples and cinnamon go great together, and they embody the essence of autumn. Make your own apple simple syrup, add a pinch of cinnamon, and give your coffee a fall boost!
3. Make it a dirty chai tea
Chai tea is good, and coffee is better. Mix the two and you get a dirty chai! Add a shot of espresso or regular black coffee to your chai tea and upgrade your coffee drinking experience.
4. Create a salted caramel mocha latte
Combine new Starbucks Fall Blend coffee and a Starbucks Salted Caramel K-Cup® pod and you’ve got yourself a salted caramel mocha latte!

Smell, slurp, savor: A coffee tasting guide
Whether you just woke up, or you’re curled up in front of the fire place with a good book, there’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee to keep you warm inside. Get the most out of your favorite fall coffee flavors by learning how to taste it the right way, courtesy of Starbucks:
Smell: Always smell your coffee before tasting it. Your mouth distinguishes only four tastes: salty, sweet, bitter and sour, but your nose can detect thousands of smells.
Slurp: When tasting a coffee, it’s important to slurp it. This sprays the coffee across your palate and lets the subtle flavors and aromas reach all the tasting zones of your mouth.
Savor: Consider the coffee’s weight and feel in your mouth. Where are you experiencing the flavors? On your tongue? Think about how you would describe your coffee tasting experience. Which words would you use to characterize the aroma, flavor and how coffee feels in your mouth? What other food flavors or aromas can you compare the coffee to?
