Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love all things pumpkin spice, caramel and lattes, so when I heard about the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods I did a little happy dance! Like many of you, coffee really helps kickstart my work day. There is just something so soothing about that first cup of coffee in the morning. Because the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are made from milk, there is no need to add cream. That really comes in handy if you are in a hurry. They also contain no artificial flavors and come in 3 signature Starbucks® flavors–caramel, vanilla and mocha. My favorite this time of year is Pumpkin Spice and after Thanksgiving my go to flavor is Peppermint Mocha. Because these seasonal flavors are only here for a limited time, be sure to stock up while you can-I know I will!
The new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are a little different than regular K-Cup® Pods in that it is a two step process. Let me show you how easy it is.
Step 1-pour the flavor packet into the mug. I am using Caramel:
Step 2 Place the K-Cup® Pod in the Keurig® brewer. You can immediately smell the wonderful aromas!
Just stir and you are ready to enjoy your delicious Starbucks® Caffè Latte! You didn’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home! You can purchase these nationally at your local grocery store.
Since I love these so much, I really wanted to share with my friends, so I decided to host a Fall Brunch. It is fun to have a little down time with good friends, good food and good coffee! I set up a buffet with the Keurig® and new Starbucks® Caffè Latte taking center stage. Next, a nice assortment of pastries to go along with the fall season, including my go to recipe for pumpkin bread.
We had such a great time and I’m so thankful we were able to Enjoy A Fall Brunch With New Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods.
Whenever I have a gathering, I love to give favors and this Fall Brunch is no exception. I created these fun gift bags with a coffee cup tag and one of the new K-Cup® Pods in each bag.
Here is a simple tutorial so you can make your own.
Cellophane Bags 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″
Scissors or Paper Cutter
Cut out a 4″ x 6″ piece cardstock and place it inside the bag. Insert the Starbucks® Flavor Packet and K-Cup® Pod.
Punch a hole in the upper right corner of bag and attach a ribbon, along with a gift tag of your choice. I used an absolutely adorable coffee cup for the tag. Look at this great saying:
My friends loved being able to take one home, although I’m pretty sure they will be buying their own box very soon! Jackie is like me and loves Pumpkin Spice. Ryan is a Mocha guy all the way and Diane loves Caramel. What is your favorite flavor?
