Autumn-Inspired Drinks For The Office

Pumpkin Spice is Back!

Autumn officially begins on September 22nd here in the UK, and we’ve been thinking of delicious drinks to keep us cosy at work. With summer seeming all but a distant memory now, it’s time to embrace chunky knit jumpers, kicking up leaves and enjoying warming autumnal teas and coffees at the office. 

Need some inspiration? We’ve put together three super simple drinks recipe ideas for you and your colleagues to try. All you’ll need is your FreshGround coffee machine, and a few extra ingredients.


Chai hot chocolate

Give your regular hot choc an autumn-inspired upgrade with a generous splash of chai syrup. Using a tall glass, simply pour in your indulgent, creamy hot chocolate three quarters to the top. Add a splash of delicious chai syrup to give it a spicy and complex flavour. Top with lots of milk foam, or squirty cream if you prefer, and sprinkle some grated chocolate on top to finish. This sweet treat is sure to get you through an afternoon slump and keep you going through the day.



Pumpkin spice latte

The pumpkin spiced latte (or PSL as it’s affectionately called by coffee lovers), has become something of a cult classic. Synonymous with all things autumn, the PSL will warm you up on even the chilliest of days! With just a handful of ingredients, you’ve got your very own PSL to enjoy at work. Simply add a shot of pumpkin syrup to a tall latte glass (the ones with a handle look the best), and pour your latte. Top with an extra shot of milk foam, and give it some extra flavour by sprinkling some cinnamon on top. Then just sit back, take five and enjoy!



Pumpkin spice chai tea

Love the sweet taste of pumpkin spice but not a coffee fan? We’ve got you. Pumpkin spice works just as well in a hot tea so you don’t have to feel like you’re missing out! Chai pairs with pumpkin perfectly so simply brew up a chai tea bag for about five minutes and then add a shot (or two, depending on how strong you like it) of pumpkin spice syrup. For a richer flavour, we like to add a cinnamon stick and for extra sweetness, some brown sugar works really nicely with the other flavours.
