For the love of lattes: Fresh takes on fall favorites

It’s finally fall. With the promise of cute sweaters, changing colors and falling leaves comes the return of the world-famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. Star-bucks distributed PSL passes to Gold members early, bringing the first taste of fall. But for non-Gold Members or for those who aren’t regular Starbucks customers, there were few known ways to acquire the PSL flavor. Fear no more. Here are five local avenues offering a few different seasonal drinks with ease:

1.Shades of Brown

Seasonal doesn’t have to include pumpkin flavor. For those who are searching for something a little more down-to-earth, Shades of Brown offers apple cider for under $4.

2. Mod’s Coffee and Crepe’s

For those that want to experience the pumpkin without the spice, Mod’s offers their very own version in a Pumpkin Pie Chai Latte. Enjoy it iced, hot or blended.

3. Topeca

Want a taste of Christmas? Look no further than Topeca, where customers can grab their very own Peppermint Mocha. It’s served both hot and iced, so beat the heat or warm up for an early morning class.

4. Kaffe Bona

A fan favorite, the Pumpkin Pie Big Train, has many flavors ranging through pumpkin, chai, vanilla bean and nutmeg. It’s only served cold though, so enjoy when the weather’s hot.

5. Coffee House on Cherry Street (CHoCS)

Finally, the Coffee House on Cherry Street, affectionately referred to as “CHoCS,” is another well-known favorite.  CHoCS offers the Polar Bear, a drink loaded with white chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon, and served hot or cold. No matter the drink choice, you may be surprised and satisfied by the many options for seasonal coffees in Tulsa.
