Fall Latte at Fonté 2


Have you seen fall? The world is on fire with color. Sadly, it won’t be much longer. The trees are losing their leaves, but don’t worry. You can still eat fall for days to come or drink it, as Fonté is quickly proving. They are serving fall in a cup. It’s not on the menu yet, but ask about it.

Spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove it has a gentle warmth. A touch of cayenne and black pepper add enough heat to flush your cheeks and the sweetness of vanilla syrup balances the drink for a smooth finish. Did fall ever taste so good?

What are your favorite fall flavors? Stay tuned for more of mine!

(Just a quick word of warning, this isn’t a latte meant to be enjoyed to the dregs. The spices settle to the bottom.)

I like how kneading butter into flour makes my fingers soft. I’m passionate about all things sweet potato. I prefer my coffee black, my scotch on the rocks and my steak bloody. I hunt, when I have time; play basketball; and hike. I’ve been known to laugh so hard I hyperventilate. And, I’m the owner of Making Language Count, a boutique freelance writing business.
