    More than Pumpkin Spice…

    I love coffee, but when the weather starts to cool down there’s nothing quite like mixing it up and indulging in a delicious seasonal beverage.


    Here are four local favorites that are 100% worth trying.


    The Chaider from Mean Cup, is a hybrid of Chai and Cider that is ahhhhmazing. I swear that it actually tastes like fall. Pick up a warm one or try it over ice.


    More into green tea? Matcha fans rejoice! Commonwealth Kitchen & Cafe serves up a mean matcha latte. If that’s not your thing, be sure to try out their Red Velvet (yes, red velvet!) Hot Chocolate or their Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yum!




    Brew up your own mug of Spiced Orchard Oolong Tea from The Spice & Tea Exchange. Made from oolong tea, apple pieces, cinnamon bark, ginger, cloves, natural pear and cinnamon flavorings, safflowers, natural caramel flavoring, this tea screams fall!  Perfect to drink while snuggling up with a good book.


    I tried to resist, but I just couldn’t write about fall beverages without including a good old PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte, natch). This one from Barbaret is everything that I could ask for- subtle (not too-sweet) pumpkin flavor, portable, and the caffeine equivalent of 1 1/2 cups of coffee. Yes, please!
