Fall coffee flavors are back and we’ve never been more excited about anything more.
Though the leaves haven’t begun changing quite just yet, there’s something about all of our local and chain coffee shops releasing fall flavors that gets us in the crisp autumn spirit. We’ve never been more ready for the leaves to change, to throw on our best sweaters and last but absolutely not least, we can’t even fathom how excited we are for it to finally cool off after a long hot summer. Fall coffee flavors mark the beginning of a brand new time of the year that simply can’t come sooner.
While most probably assimilate fall coffee flavors solely with pumpkin spice, there is a slew of autumnal favorites ready to grab online for a hot pot every crisp, fall morning. Don’t get us wrong, we still love pumpkin spice — a lot, but if you haven’t ever tried another fall coffee flavor, you’re really missing out.
From caramel apple pie to chocolate peanut butter cup, we can almost smell the morning brew wafting from the coffee maker. Check out all of the best fall coffee flavors you can snag online below.
1. Pumpkin Spice
We couldn’t start this list any other way. Pumpkin spice coffee is the king of kings when it comes to fall coffee flavors. It’s a fact, don’t shoot the messenger. It’s got a deliciously sweet taste that gives nothing but autumnal happiness the second it hits our taste buds. Sure, it might be a token to white girl culture, but we don’t give a damn. We have no shame in starting that pumpkin spice from Starbucks is our favorite. Plus, they even sell it in k-cups!
2. Salted Caramel
Your favorite flavor all year round with a little added pizazz. Salted caramel has a fall-centricity to it that we just can’t pinpoint. Maybe it reverts back to snatching some with mom and dad during fall festivals in your hometown? Or the candies grandma would give you around Halloween as a kid? We’re not entirely sure, but salted caramel has autumn written all over it. Our favorite salted caramel coffee comes from this kitschy coffee brand called Bones Coffee. Given Halloween is just around the corner, using the word “bones” in the title is really speaking to us right now. Hey, maybe it’ll become your new go-to.
3. Caramel Apple Pie
Adding caramel to anything makes it taste better, right? Right. Caramel apples and pie separate are a staple to fall, but when morphed together, they create one of the most iconic fall desserts that there is: the caramel apple pie. Our favorite caramel apple pie flavor comes from The Donut Shop. It’s rich, it’s thick and it’s delicious. It’s only available in k-cups, so all you Keurig owners out there, this one’s for you.
4. Vanilla Nut
Organic? Check. Vegan? Check. Paleo? Check. Ethically-sourced? Gluten-free? Certified-B corporation? Check, check and check. Thrive Market’s Organic Vanilla Nut Coffee isn’t just delicious, it’s… well… every good thing coffee can be aside from tasty. It’s made using 100% Peruvian Arabica coffee beans and vanilla flavoring to get that scrumptiously sweet taste we know you’ll fall in love with. Hah, get it?
5. Maple Pecan
Coffee and pancakes? Ditch the maple syrup for a piping hot cup of joe this autumn instead. Okay, well, maybe don’t ditch the syrup. With maple pecan coffee, you can double up on the maple — one for your cup and one for your plate. We believe the best maple pecan coffee flavor comes from Lola Savannah due to its rich, nutty flavor with just a dollop of maple to keep you coming back. It’s the morning cup you never knew you needed.
6. Cinnamon Bun
Don’t hate on Dunkin’. It’s not allowed. We know all you Starbucks people out there are gagging at the sight of this bag pictured below, but we have one thing to say: it’s coffee. Starbucks isn’t elite to Dunkin’. Both are equally as delicious. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, ditch the decadent thousand calorie sweet treat and consume it in a lower cal coffee form instead. This one comes in a medium roast for your enjoyment.
7. Peanut Butter Cup
Halloween is just around the corner and you know what that means: the best Halloween candy. If Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups aren’t your favorite, you’re simply wrong. Unless you’re allergic to peanuts, because then you’re right. Anyways, while this is in no was affiliated with Reese’s, these peanut butter cup k-cups are way too perfect for spooky season. Just shove ’em in your Keurig and enjoy!
Kickin’ back by a campfire hits different in fall. And, what can’t you have a campfire without? That’s right. Roasted marshmallows. Get your marshmallow fix early with a morning cup of brew minus the icky, sticky substance. The Coffee Fool hit the nail on the head with this melted marshmallow flavor. It’s not too overwhelming and tastes just right brewed hot.
9. Bourbon Pecan
Spiking your cup? Bourbon pecan makes for the perfect flavor for adding… well… a little more bourbon, we guess. Door County Coffee makes a slew of the best fall coffee flavors but this has become one of their most popular on Amazon. These flavors are only available for a limited time during the fall, so you better stock up!
