We have the best fall pairings for your strong coffee drink.
WITH A PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE
We’ve been waiting for it all year for fall, and now it’s finally time to experience the pumpkin spice latte (fondly known as the “PSL”). But what is even better than pumpkin coffee? A sweet pumpkin-y treat to accompany your seasonal coffee.
Pumpkin Bread is easy to make and will get you in the fall mood in no time. This pastry is perfect for your next family gathering and makes your entire home smell like a cinnamon candle.
And did we mention that pumpkin is a super food? It promotes heart health, great eyesight and possibly cancer prevention.
WITH AN ICED COFFEE
Iced coffee isn’t just for summertime. Sometimes, we enjoy a cold brew in fall with our favorite flavoring, or simply black, to give us an extra kick of “wake up” in the morning.
Try a classic Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissant) to add a sweet and savory pastry to your breakfast routine or afternoon coffee break this fall. This simple recipe gives you the perfect combination of creamy chocolate and a crunchy exterior to satisfy all of your food cravings.
Pro Tip: Make a batch at the beginning of the week, and warm it up for 10-15 seconds before eating!
WITH A MOCHA
We get it. Chocolate goes great with caffeine. What could make you want to get out of bed more than a rich chocolate drink. Instead of going into chocolate overdrive with even more cocoa.
Instead, try adding a complementary sweet flavor- fruit. The Fruit Tart will give you the nutrients you need to boost your energy levels, and the caffeine in your mocha (especially if you brew it with a strong coffee or espresso) will increase your productivity all day long this fall.
WITH HOT COFFEE
You’re a simple folk. Coffee should be as black as a cat on Halloween, and you want it as as strong as humanly possible, maybe even the World’s Strongest Coffee. You want a pastry that is going to add some flavor to your coffee break, and we have the perfect one for you.
Donuts are the staple addition to a cup of coffee, but we suggest a twist this fall. Try an Apple Cider Donut from your local farmer’s market, or make your own at home. There sugary, cinnamon-y delights will have you feeling ready to take on fall.
WITH A SHOT OF ESPRESSO
You aren’t messing around with your caffeine intake. You want the most bang for your buck, and we support you in that. Espresso is a great way to add caffeine into your body without downing cups and cups of coffee.
The Biscotti is the best friend to a single espresso shot. These cookie-like pastries can be coated in chocolate or dipped into your espresso for a mocha-flavored, tasty treat.
