Five Coffee Drinks to Make at Home for National Coffee Day 

September 21, 2021

Coffee lovers rejoice! National Coffee is this Wednesday, September 29th followed by International Coffee Day this Friday, October 1st! Coffee originated in Ethiopia around 700 AD and many cultures have various coffee traditions with the United States being no exception. Coffee gained popularity in the United States as an alternative to tea when King George III taxed the drink in 1773. Since then coffee has become a large part of American culture with the average person spending approximately $1,100 on coffee as of 2018. Additionally, coffee is the second most consumed beverage and one of the world’s largest traded commodities. It is even believed to have some health benefits, including offering drinkers a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Check out five delicious coffee drinks you can make at home in honor of coffee day! 

Five Coffee Drinks to Make at Home 

Cold Brew 

Cold Brew Coffee has gained popularity over the last few years as a coffee drink with a serious caffeine kick and low acidity levels, making it easier on your stomach. You can brew a cup of your own cold brew at home overnight. Recipe

Looking to add some cold foam on top of your cold brew as well? Try adding some home-made pumpkin cream cold foam for a nice fall flavor. Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Latte 

This drink (PSL for short) is a staple drink for the fall season, taking the world by storm every September. Get your caffeine kick with this drink either hot or iced and feel like you are eating a slice of pumpkin pie. Recipe

Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso 

A recent addition to the coffee scene, the Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso is creamy and sweet, free of lots of sugary syrups and easy to make at home. Savor the flavors of summer a bit longer with this drink. Recipe

Vietnamese Iced Coffee 

This drink is more commonly found at your local coffee shop rather than chain stores. Creamy and sweet, if you’ve never tried this caffeinated drink with sweetened condensed milk, it’s worth making at home. Recipe

Dirty Spiced Chai 

Looking for more fall flavors without the overwhelming taste of coffee? Try a Dirty Spiced Chai, hot or iced, with a milk of your choice! This drink is filled with warm spices perfect for fall with espresso shots added for a caffeinated kick. Love the flavor of chai but don’t want the coffee? Remove the espresso shots. Recipe

Bonus: Coffee Cubes 

One of the worst parts of drinking iced coffee is after your ice melts and your coffee is diluted by water. Solve this problem by replacing your ice cubes with coffee cubes! Recipe
