Updated for 2021. Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season of the year, the leaves are changing, the weather is perfect and I get to delve into all of the yummy seasonal drinks that my favorite cafes have to offer. If you are your very own at-home barista, Fall is the perfect time to experiment with new drinks recipes and host fun get-togethers with friends and family to try out your best lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos and more. For more details on how you can make the best of Fall and change up your espresso routine this season, keep reading.
Try Apple Cider & Hot Cocoa
Apple cider and hot cocoa are kitchen staples as it gets colder and we start craving hot beverages to keep us warm & toasty. Many espresso machines are equipped with on-demand hot water functions for tea and Americanos. But, what better way to get more use out of this feature and get excited for Fall than to make yummy apple cider and hot chocolate and even add a little whipped cream or marshmallows on top.
Stock Up On Flavored Seasonal Syrups & Creamers
Apple, Caramel, Pumpkin Spice (of course), and Hazelnut are some of my favorite flavors to add in lattes. They add a fun surprise to my morning coffee and I swear they taste better in the Fall compared to any other season. Try stocking up on some fun flavored seasonal syrups to change up your morning coffee or put toasted marshmallow creamer in the fridge at work, your coworkers will love you for it, and it’ll be gone by the end of the week!
Host a Fall Season Celebration
This time of year marks the beginning of family get-togethers. This is the perfect time to host a brunch or dinner and invite people over to try fun recipes and even share the syrups and creamers with you. If you’re looking for the perfect machine and coffee to whip up delicious and warming drinks, I highly recommend the Rocket Espresso Appartamento, it’s been getting tons of love from satisfied customers and my favorite part is that we provide you with different options for colored panels. Iridescent, Ruby and Gold panels are just a few of many options that we make custom for our customers so that you can show your personality as your own at-home barista.
The Rocket Appartamento is a heat exchange machine so it can brew and steam at the same time and with guests over, you don’t want to keep them waiting for your delicious lattes and cappuccinos. It also has a long list of loveable features including the iconic E61 brew group for temperature stability, a passively heated cup warmer to keep your drinks nice and toasty and a generous 2.5 L water reservoir and sensor that alerts you when your water levels are getting low and need to be replenished.
Introduce Your Coworkers to the World of High-Quality Coffee and Espresso
By far, one of our favorite espresso machines for the office is the JURA GIGA 6. If you’ve been looking for a great way to level up from your office’s old drip coffee maker, it’s time to make the move over to the world of café-quality coffee and espresso with JURA’s luxurious dual spout, dual hopper machine. With two hoppers, you’ll never have to worry about running out of coffee when the day gets slow, simply press a button on the GIGA 6 and your favorite beverage is dispensed in less than a minute. Speaking of your favorite beverage, you and your coworkers will have over 28 options to choose from. From flat whites and Americanos to ristrettos or a regular cup of joe, the options are endless and I am here for it!
To pair with the GIGA 6, your coworkers might appreciate getting fresh coffee from whole beans every morning. We recommend bringing in the Maromas Whole Bean Espresso Sampler for ultimate variety in high-quality coffee. If you have a decaf-loving coworker, no worries, one of my personal favorite decaf coffees is the Lavazza Dek Decaf Espresso Blend, it’s smooth and savory without the kick of caffeine, it’s delicious.
