Cold brew is on our list of spring coffee suggestions because there's a lot you can do with it.
Drink it black, dress it up with flavored coffee syrups, stir in a dash of sugar and milk (or heavy cream or coffee creamer), or top it with cold foam — the possibilities are almost endless with this drink, so it shouldn't be hard for you to use it to create the springtime beverage of your dreams.
Next up on our list of spring coffee suggestions is the caramel macchiato.
Though you'll frequently see it sold as a warm coffee drink, the combination of espresso, milk, vanilla syrup, and caramel syrup makes a lovely springtime refresher when you sip it from an ice-filled glass.
Dalgona coffee — whipped instant coffee granules, hot water, and granulated sugar poured over your preferred type of milk — was all the rage during the early days of the COVID-19 quarantine in 2020.
When the recipe went viral on the video-sharing app TikTok, it had almost every java lover's attention, and though the hype has died down since, we think spring is the perfect time to bring back the fun coffee drink.
Even the most devoted espresso lovers need a break from it every once in a while, don't they?
Or maybe it isn't unusual for you to choose tea leaves over coffee beans.
Either way, you need to try matcha at least once. The green tea latte has calming properties, so even though it contains a small amount of caffeine, it won't give you the same jitters a cup of coffee will. Plus, matcha boasts an impressive array of health benefits.
The Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte is a year-round favorite among coffee fans everywhere, but let's face it: the cost of coffee shop drinks adds up quickly, especially if you're the type of person who needs more than one cup to make it through the day.
Fortunately, this drink is easy to replicate at home if you have vanilla extract, maple syrup, milk, cinnamon, and a batch of your favorite espresso beans to brew.
You no doubt knew the latte has long been a classic coffee drink but did you know you can make it without freshly brewed espresso?
Lattes made with tea — usually matcha, chai, or, in this case, whatever kind of green tea leaves you've got lying around — allow you to enjoy something warm and creamy (or chilled and refreshing if you go the iced route!) without an overly intense caffeine kick.
We love espresso. Don't you? This rich, strong coffee serves as the base of lattes, cappuccinos, flat whites, and more, but give it a chance, and it can shine on its own with no help from milk, cream, or coffee creamer.
When you're not in the mood for a fancy coffee drink, simplify things with an espresso shot on the rocks. You'll be pleasantly surprised by how well the cold temperature brings out the flavors of your beans.
Pro-tip: use coffee ice cubes instead of regular ice. When these melt, they don't water down the contents of your cup. Instead, they release even more coffee flavor.
A little bit of honey is a lovely way to sweeten cold and hot coffee drinks — and it's healthier than white sugar!
Add vanilla syrup to the mix, and you've got a refreshing coffee drink perfect for enjoying after going on a picnic, bicycling through the park, working in your garden, or doing whatever your favorite spring pastime is.
An iced white chocolate mocha is probably one of the coolest coffee drinks you can find — literally and figuratively.
Though spring is usually a time for floral lattes to shine, the classic white chocolate mocha is waiting to save the day when you're not in the mood for anything enhanced with sweet rose or flowery lavender.
It's easy to snub the iced vanilla latte, dismissing it as a last-option coffee drink. We'll admit it. Vanilla isn't one of the most exciting java add-ins, but the flavor is a classic for a good reason: it tastes awesome!
A noticeable yet not overpowering sweetness and simple preparation process make the iced vanilla latte a prime candidate for your morning coffee all year long.
If you're looking for an easy, no-fuss way to put a spin on the cappuccino, check out the French vanilla-flavored variation of the beverage.
Imagine being curled up on a couch with a good book in one hand and a mug of this warm, sweet goodness in the other; if you ask us, that's the perfect way to spend an afternoon during this typically rainy season.
You might think late afternoon or evening hours are too late to enjoy a delicious coffee drink, but that's where you're mistaken.
Coffee cocktails, like the Irish coffee or, in this case, the espresso martini, are designed to be downed during post-work hours and give you the best of both worlds: robust coffee taste and liquor-induced edge.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab a cocktail shaker, fresh espresso, vodka, coffee liqueur, and simple syrup, and put your bartending skills to the test!
Spare yourself a few trips to the coffee shop by doing some brewing of your own. You might save yourself a nice chunk of change, and you’d be surprised how fun and satisfying honing your barista skills can be.
