As seasons change and fade into one another, so does your cravings for flavor. Whether it’s summer, winter, spring or fall, certain flavors elicit the feelings and nostalgia that comes with every season. With Thanksgiving being just around the corner, and Christmas approaching, there comes the return of colder weather, vibrant leaves and many of your favorite seasonal treats.
What flavors will you be enjoying this season? Flavored coffee is the most popular at this time of the year in your local coffee shops or supermarkets. They are wonderful for those who love coffee but don’t enjoy the caffeine kick of coffee with cream or milk. Or, you can brew your coffee at the comfort of your own home using a dual coffee maker that gives you two cups of coffee at once! A lot of people are turning to drip coffee brewing, where coffee is heated for a long period of time in order to allow the full flavor of the coffee beans to be extracted and imbued to your drink.
Here are the most popular coffee flavors for this season:
Pumpkin Spice Latte
The Pumpkin Spice Latte coffee is made with a blend of traditional pumpkin spice flavors (ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg), steamed milk, decaf espresso, whipped cream, pumpkin pie spice, and often with ginger ale and sugar sometimes. It’s a healthy alternative for coffee drinkers who need a cup of coffee but have trouble staying alert and focused. The pumpkin spice flavor is subtle, but it complements the sweetness of the milk.
If you are looking for a coffee to take with you on a romantic date or to make after dinner coffee, this coffee will go well with any meal you wish to prepare. Pumpkin Spice has a variety of choices including regular and decaf espresso. Many people enjoy Pumpkin Spice as an alternative to coffee, because of its excellent taste and richness in antioxidants.
Peppermint Mocha is a deliciously rich and sweet combination of chocolate and peppermint that has a warm and inviting aroma. Rich vanilla notes accompany the smooth chocolaty goodness of this comforting delight. With just the right level of chocolate-peppermint flavors and autumn’s most celebrated flavors, it makes a delightful and unique popular treat with just the right level of chocolate-peppermint flavor. Enjoy this rich, decadent brew hot, iced or blended. You will be glad you decided to try this wonderful, delicious coffee treat once you’ve tasted it.
If you are looking for the best latte to make, then you must consider the Chestnut latte. The taste of Chestnut latte is very sweet and can be compared to caramel. This type of coffee is always very popular and the most popular in the mornings. If you wish to have a cup of coffee on a rainy day, then you can always enjoy this type of latte. You can either purchase it at the store or you can easily prepare it at home and then drink it whenever you want to. Another good thing about this coffee is that you do not need to make it with much sugar because you can simply use honey, cinnamon, cream or even milk if you wish to.
Spicy Cinnamon Mocha
Another remarkable flavor for winter and fall is cinnamon, as it is relatively impossible to find any treats or scents that do not hint of cinnamon. This drink is a perfect combination of your favorite coffee blend, milk, vanilla extract, and a few dashes of cinnamon to a mixture you won’t forget.
When you use cinnamon in coffee, you have two things to look forward to. Firstly, flavor, cinnamon gives your coffee a distinct flavor, which can either be sweet or savory depending on how you blend your coffee. Secondly, it allows you to experience your coffee in a different way, giving you a better notion of the flavors. And because it tastes good, you might find yourself drinking more. By using cinnamon in your coffee, you are increasing the health benefits of the drink without having to worry about consuming too much.
Seasons come and go, whether you’re out in the sea surfing under the heat of the blazing sun or by the fireplace keeping the chill of the winter breeze at bay, there is always a flavor for every season. Have a mocha, have a latte or try some cinnamon to spice things up.
