Collect Cups of Captivating Coffee in Columbus

Fall is not the only thing that is brewing; some of your favorite coffee shops are finally bringing out fan-favorite fall drinks to Columbus. Are you ready to sip on a rich cup of coffee with a cold breeze coming through the windows? Well, we are! Check out our rundown of the Starbucks and Scooters fall menus below!



Start the season off strong with THE drink that best encapsulates fall and is as close as your local Starbucks. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is the most iconic fall drink of them all. Its versatility pulls people in and its incredible, rich flavor keeps them anchored. It is available iced, hot, or, if you’re so bold, a frappuccino! It is composed of espresso, steamed milk with pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors, and all topped with whipped cream.


If you prefer your coffee steeped cold, check out the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. This fall-tastic libation is a classic cold brew sweetened with vanilla, finished with pumpkin cream cold foam and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice on top. While I’m not much into the cold brew game, I am looking forward to trying this drink to top off the perfect breezy season!


For those more interested in apples than pumpkins, Starbucks describes the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato as “layers of Starbucks Blonde Espresso, with warm spices, brown sugar, and creamy oat milk.” As most Starbucks drinks go, you can also get this one iced! Lots of us at Anchor News love this beverage and would encourage any of our readers to give it a try.



Whether or not Scooter’s is your go-to coffee shop, they sure do have some pretty tasty fall drinks. One offering is Scooter’s fall take on their signature drink, the Pumpkin Caramelicious.  Just picture their regular Caramelicious, but with a little bit of spice. You can get this world-class espresso - melded with creamy caramel and hot, textured milk intertwined with all the pumpkin flavoring such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger - iced, hot or blended. This is exactly what you want to taste from your fall jitter juice. The Pumpkin Caramelicious is then whipped and drizzled with rich caramel. I can’t think of a better pick-me-up before a trip to the pumpkin patch.


Once again, make the most of the fall by considering trying Scooter’s version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Their deeply satisfying espresso is mixed with the same hot, textured milk and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and more. If you prefer it hot or iced, no biggy, this drink has your back. Scooter's recommends that you get this “a latte” - pun most definitely intended.


According to Scooter’s Coffee, they have a drink that will “inspire you to wear a flannel and tap a tree.” The Maple Vanilla Latte is made with hot espresso, textured milk, subtle ginger, and sweet vanilla. Hot or not, this drink is a cup full of fall flavoring.  The luxuriance of the maple and hot espresso will make your mouth water and the first sip will leave you wanting more.


Experience the newest taste of maple when ordering the Maple Spice Cold Foam on any iced or blended drink. It has a fluffy, foamy texture from nonfat milk and maple spice syrup. Whether you like the Pumpkin Caramelicious or any other fall java, the cold foam is served on whatever your heart desires. Many fans of the sweet cold foam trend attempt to make it at their own hands making this a thrilling DIY at home. I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to try this; I mean come on, it’s fun AND tasty!


In the end, the fall spirit can’t be captured the same without a good cup of coffee. No matter what you pick, you are in for a selection of all different fall flavors, all available right here in Columbus!
