My friends, I have two delicious and decadent fall coffee recipes to pair with any brunch (okay, perfect for anytime you need a little fall-flavored boost), and they’ll rival any coffeehouse creation with a nod to this beautiful autumn season… yet made right in the comfort of your home. Meaning, you don’t even need to ditch the pjs to go out (unless you really want to, of course).
How to Set Up and Style a Fall Coffee Bar Cart
Something about fall makes me crave a hot mug of something seasonal and flavored. While the weather here in Florida is juuuust now beginning to change, we’ve been settling into all things autumn all month long, with the air turned up inside of course. There is just something about a cool morning with a good sweater (or knit blanket) and I like to style my bar cart for the perfect festive morning brew.
With my Keurig, I can have freshly brewed coffee in my hands at the touch of a button, so it pretty much lives on my bar cart (turned coffee bar cart, and we’ve got a DIY coffee bar cart to create your own here), this way create plenty of different drinks for me… and this way, I’m always ready for guests too!
Last Christmas I also gifted myself a Nespresso machine and with the espresso pods, I can have that perfectly handcrafted espresso feel whenever the mood hits!
Folgers has been a part of lasting traditions since 1850, and it’s been a part of my life, well let’s just say not quite that long, but a long time 😉 . There’s a reason it’s a timeless ritual. I can always tell when my husband is clamoring around the kitchen and has hit the brew button because that rich coffee aroma makes it’s way to my room, and I crawl my way out to join him for that morning sip.
To style and set up your coffee bar cart so that you’ll be sippin’ your own festive fall flavors in no time, just gather the essentials. I typically keep a stash of K-Cup® pods in a large glass jar on my cart so that I can brew whenever I’m needing a pick-me-up, but any container will work.
From there, it’s all about having your fall coffee pairings ready.
Typically, I’ll keep creamer and whipped cream in the fridge to add to my cup as the fall coffee mood strikes. Once the fall weather hits, a Pumpkin Pie Spice is a treat that I always have on hand with a creamy swirl of seasonal spice flavors inspired by pumpkin pie, which makes it SO easy to have my own autumn cup of joe without even having to leave home in the morning.
I also have other syrups, cocoa, salt (gotta have it!), pumpkin pie spice, and other toppings styled in jars and ready to top off my autumn sips.
Feel free to mix it up and keep sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate shavings, graham cracker crumbles (hello, smores latte!) and more as well… you can mix and match flavors until your heart is content.
