September 29th is National Coffee Day.

To some coffee drinkers, fall means pumpkin spice lattes.

We’re not keen on the sugar syrup, so for us, fall means fall coffee flavors.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice products are back on grocery store shelves, along with new fall specialties.

Joining Pumpkin Spice are:

  • Starbucks Maple Pecan Flavored Coffee, in K-Cups, Roast & Ground.
  • Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Flavored Creamer. It enhances your cup of joe* with cocoa and caramel flavors, and an added a hint of salt.
  •  
    All three are delicious, hot or iced.

    We are fans of Pumpkin Spice, but Maple Pecan adds something new to our repertoire.

    It has toasty pecan notes but also a bit of winey flavor that inspired us to make a cold cocktail: brewed Maple Pecan coffee, vodka and cream.

    Yes, it’s a fall-flavor version of a White Russian. And it’s delicious hot, too.

  • Coffee liqueur is optional.
  • Snack on a side of ginger snaps.
  •  
    So even while the weather is still on the mild side, embrace the fall season and National Coffee Day.

    ________________

    *In 1913 Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the Navy under Woodrow Wilson, prohibited alcohol aboard naval vessels as one of his ways to impose stricter moral standards on naval life. As a result, sailors drank more coffee. The phrase “Cup of Joe” became slang for a cup of coffee—meant as an insult, of course. Over time, Josephus Daniels was forgotten and cup of joe joining the other two slang terms for coffee: java and jamoke [source].
