Homemade Autumn Spiced Latte

It is that time of year where coats, hats and scarfs are starting to make an appearance.

With halloween just round the corner, pumpkins are popping up everywhere.  Starbucks have the autumn/winter warmers in. When you are cuddled up at home with a good book or curled up on the sofa and want something to warm you up,  the coffee shop is just that much out of reach. So making your coffee with the inspiration of the seasons is easier than you first thought.

This recipe can be made with what you already have in your spice rack.


Autumn Spice Mix
3 tablespoons ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground Ginger
2 teaspoons Nutmeg
1 and half ground Allspice
1 and half ground Clove

One dose of strong coffee
Half a teaspoon of autumn spice mix
2 dollops of honey
125ml of milk


For the spice mix, put all the spices in a small bowl and mix throughly all together. This can be stored in a small jar, so it is ready to use.

I used our Nespresso coffee machine and Aeroccino machine which warms the milk. But never fear for that you can also make this with out a coffee machine.

Start by putting the honey and spice mix together at the bottom of the mug and then proceed to warm the milk up in the Aeroccino with the whisk so that you have light and fluffy milk. If you do not have the Aeroccino machine warm the milk up on the stove and whisk throughly so get the desired affect. Pour the milk in to your mug then add the coffee last to get that barista effect. I used the Fortisso Lungo which is the deep green capsule.

Now just sit back, light your pumpkin and put a scary film and enjoy your seasonal latte in the comfort of your home.

Bonne Degestation
