Forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Try These Seasonal Specials at Local Cafes


Published:

THE MACCH OF KENT FROM DESSERT OASIS IN ROCHESTER.

For those tired of Pumpkin Spice, these local coffee shops have created their own specialty seasonal beverages featuring other fall flavors. 


Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company: Not a fan of sickly sweet lattes? For those who like their coffee black, Great Lakes Coffee offers their seasonal Autumn Mornings blend. With flavors of watermelon, black tea, and dark berry tasting notes, a cup of this Ethiopian coffee is reminiscent of a crisp, fall day. 
Great Lakes Coffee, 3965 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-831-9627

Atomic Coffee: Step aside, pumpkin. Apples meet espresso in Atomic Coffee’s seasonal Apple Pie Latte. The Royal Oak-based coffee shop’s concoction is the drinkable version of a classic fall dessert.
Atomic Coffee, 401 S. Main St., Royal Oak; 248-397-8036

Dessert Oasis: With locations in Rochester and downtown Detroit, Dessert Oasis offers two seasonal, espresso-based drinks. The Macch of Kent macchiato — made with a house-made vanilla bean syrup, sprinkled with cinnamon, and garnished with an apple slice  — and the Zombie Dance latte — made with graham cracker infused milk and cinnamon-brown sugar.
Dessert Oasis, 336 S. Main St., Rochester; 248-453-5239

Urban Bean Co.: Not a coffee drinker? Urban Bean offers apple cider-based drinks in addition to their full coffee lineup, from classic hot apple cider to their special apple chai tea latte.
Urban Bean Co., 200 Grand River Ave., Detroit; 313-496-1010

Avalon Bakery: Like a little saltiness with your sweets? Avalon Bakery has you covered for autumn. Their brown sugar sea salt latte combines rich espresso, brown sugar, milk, and sea salt in a perfectly balanced treat.
Avalon Cafe + Bakery, 1049 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-285-8006

Germack Coffee: Not to be confused with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, Germack Coffee’s Fall Spice Latte is a fan favorite, even though the recipe changes each year. The blend combines flavors of cloves, star anise, cinnamon, Tellicherry black peppercorns, gingeroot, and cardamom.
Germack Coffee Roasting Co., 2517 Russell St., Detroit; 313-784-9517
