Best Fall Coffee Drinks to Make at Home
Chai Tea Latte
A chai tea latte is a great way to spice up your coffee routine. It’s also perfect for chilly fall days! All you need is some black tea, milk, spices, and a sweetener of your choice. Simply steep the tea in hot water and then add milk and spices. You can find premade chai mixes at most grocery stores these days, or you can make your own using things like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger. Sweeten to taste and enjoy!

Pumpkin spice lattes are probably the most popular fall coffee drink. And for good reason – they’re delicious! You can make your own at home using pumpkin puree, milk, spices, and sweetener. Simply combine all the ingredients and heat until warmed through. You can also find premade mixes at the store if you want to save yourself some time.
Maple lattes are another great fall coffee drink. They’re sweet and warming, and perfect for chilly mornings. To make a maple latte, simply add some maple syrup to your favorite coffee along with milk and a sweetener of your choice. Heat until warm and enjoy!
Caramel Apple Cider
This one is more of a cider than a coffee drink, but it’s too good not to include it! Caramel apple cider is perfect for fall days spent outside. Simply combine apple cider, caramel sauce, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Heat until warmed through and enjoy!
Salted Caramel Mocha
A salted caramel mocha is the perfect fall coffee drink for chocolate lovers. To make one, simply combine coffee, milk, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, and a pinch of salt. Heat until warm and enjoy! You can also find premade mixes at the store for this as well, though making from scratch is always better.
Fall Coffee Drinks to Order at Coffee Shops
Pumpkin Spice Latte
The most iconic of all fall coffee drinks has to be the pumpkin spice latte. That’s why we put it on the list twice! This sweet and spicy beverage is made with espresso, milk, and a special blend of spices that include cinnamon, ginger, clove, and nutmeg. You can find this at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts.
A hazelnut latte is a great way to get your nutty fix in the fall. It’s made with espresso, milk, and hazelnut syrup. You can find this at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts.
Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
This is a cold alternative to the pumpkin spice latte if you’re looking for something to cool you down on a hot day. It’s made with milk, ice, pumpkin puree, and a special blend of spices. You can find this at Starbucks.
Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
This is an absolute staple if you are going to a coffee shop that serves cold brews. If your coffee shop offers cold foam options, you can even double up on your pumpkin flavoring! Though we personally feel that is too much pumpkin flavor, but to each their own!
