Salted Caramel Mocha Latté
This coffee beverage takes a few different yummy fall flavors and combines them to make a totally unique drink. Everyone loves a mocha—espresso and chocolate—but have you ever tried one with a shot of salted caramel?
For this recipe, which we found over at Inside Brucrew Life, simply brew a shot of espresso or a really strong cup of coffee. In a pot on the stove, heat caramel, chocolate syrup, milk; then mix with your coffee. Top with whipped cream, caramel sauce, and sea salt and enjoy!
Molasses Mocha Latté
This drink is another spin-off the classic mocha. Coined by the Rose Park Roasters, a coffee roastery and shop located in Long Beach, California, this drink combines the rich and sweet flavor of molasses with the nutty goodness of coffee. The original drink combines rosemary, ginger, molasses, and chocolate to create a rich, nutty, sweet coffee drink that’s perfect for fall.
To recreate this drink at home, start by brewing an extra strong cup of coffee. To create the gingery molasses syrup, combine brown sugar, whole cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg in a pot on the stove. You can also find a delicious variation of this recipe on The Last Cookie.
This version of the macchiato is not to be confused with a traditional espresso macchiato, which is literally just a double shot of espresso “marked” with a dollop of foam. A spin off of the latte macchiato, this beverage is sweet, nutty, and creamy—perfect for folks who crave caffeine but aren’t interested in a super bitter coffee drink.
For this fall coffee beverage, brew a double shot of espresso or an extra strong cup of coffee. Before adding warm milk, mix the coffee with hazelnut syrup. Top with whipped cream after adding warm milk. Add a little caramel syrup when you add the hazelnut if you’re looking for a yummy caramel hazelnut variation.

Cinnamon Dolce Latte
The cinnamon dolce latte is right up there with the pumpkin spice latte when it comes to favorite coffee drinks from Starbucks. Now you can make this warm, sweetly spiced drink from the comfort of your own home. Create your own cinnamon sugar syrup by heating up water, sugar, and cinnamon together on the stove. Heat until the sugar and cinnamon are dissolved.
Once the syrup is made, brew an extra strong cup of coffee or a double shot of espresso. Warm some milk in the stove and froth it with a frothing tool. If you don’t have a frother, you can put it in a blender set on high. Combine the milk with the coffee and syrup, and enjoy your homemade cinnamon dolce latte.
