How to Spice-up Your Coffee!

By Avery Carruthers

Hello fashionistas! Long time no see! 

As we all know, my love for coffee runs deep, as if caffeine literally flows through my veins. I enjoy a good cup of coffee anytime of the day, seven days a week. Personally, I prefer a smooth blonde roast with a few pumps of vanilla, but that's just me.

Since having worked at Starbucks for over two years, I guess you can say I know a lot about coffee. From the roast type to their unique characteristics, I am (almost) able to answer any question you may have. So how does one spice up their coffee? Luckily for you, I am here to give you 4 tips on making your coffee that much more delicious and save the day (or at least try to)...

1.) Cream-

I am such a fan of good creamers. Due to the fact that I have the biggest sweet tooth, I always tend to go for the “pumpkin spice” and the “cookies n cream” flavors. However, a simple half and half would also suffice.

2.) Toppings-

What exactly do I mean when I say “sprinkles?” It’s simple: toppings. I love to add cinnamon to my coffee simply because it adds that ‘kick’ to my blonde roast. And of course, this is one healthy recipe, because we all know the benefits of cinnamon. I would also recommend trying chocolate, vanilla and nutmeg as well.

3.) Whip Cream-

Who here doesn’t like whip cream? That’s right, we ALL love it and I don’t blame you! Go ahead, add whip cream to every cup and savor each sip.

4.) Blends-

Lastly, if you are ever feeling bored with your regular cup of joe, why not switch it up and taste test other coffee roasts? Turkish coffee and Columbian coffee are two of my personal favorites, but go ahead and do what you see fit.

For those of you on a budget, here is how to create a cozy coffee bar at home. If you are looking for a dark roast, I would try the french or espresso roast whereas a nice medium roast is the Pike Place roast. Or if you are like me, go ahead with the Veranda blonde blend with a dash of vanilla.

Now that I have explained various ways to spice up your coffee, which ones are my favorites? Well, like I already said, I could never go wrong with a blonde roast. However, I am also such a FAN of Starbuck’s pumpkin spice lattes. They really seem to put me in the ‘fall’ spirit. I also enjoy regular brewed coffee! My suggestion would be to buy k-cups in your favorite flavors. They are simple to brew in the comfort of your own home.
