Fall is in the air! The weather is crisp, leaves are beginning to change, and you can finally wear your favorite sweater again. There are so many great things happening this time of year, but we think the most exciting part of autumn is warm, cozy, and comes in a Styrofoam cup…Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Cappuccino!
That’s right, the wait is over. You can enjoy Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Cappuccino all season long at The Store! To make your sipping experience even better, we’ve gathered a list of fun autumn activities to get you in that “spooky season” mood. Read on!
1. Enjoy the Morning Outside
After grabbing your cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee from The Store, start your morning outdoors. Grab a bench seat at the park or go for a leisurely stroll. Either way, you’ll enjoy the fresh, brisk autumn air (which complements coffee quite nicely, might we add). You can bring Fido along, too!
2. Watch the Leaves Change
There’s nothing quite like the Midwest this time of year. The trees are gorgeous! This season, be sure to take in the beauty around you. Stop and smell the roses – or, ehm, stop and watch the leaves! For the best locales, check out the Wisconsin Fall Color Report. This handy site will keep you updated on fall colors throughout the state so you can be sure you’re getting the most vibrant views. You can also find state parks, trails, forests and recreational areas in your area to make the most of stunning autumn scenery.
3. Take a Scenic Drive
If enjoying fall colors by car is more your thing, you’re in luck. Buckle up, place your Pumpkin Spice Coffee in the cupholder and hit the road! There are plenty of scenic drives throughout Wisconsin that showcase the state’s beautiful autumn hues. Find 11 of the best routes here, or forge your own path and share it with us on social media! We’d love to hear about your fall adventures.
4. Bake Pumpkin Goodies
To all the weekend bakers out there, this one’s for you. Pick up a Pumpkin Spice Coffee or Cappuccino and set up shop in the kitchen. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars…you get the idea. Yum! Plus, your family or roommates will be excited to taste-test your treats.
Pro Tip – If you like dark chocolate chips, you’ll LOVE them in pumpkin muffins. But don’t take our word for it, try it for yourself and let us know what you think!
5. Find Festive Movies
Nothing says “fall” quite like curling up on a blustery day to watch a festive movie or two. Blanket? Check. Pumpkin Spice Coffee? Double check.
A few of our fall favorites include Hocus Pocus, Dead Poets Society, October Sky, and, of course, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Gather the whole family and enjoy a film together. Plus, if you baked a few treats, they’d make a great addition to the festivities!
6. Curl Up with a Good Book
Is there anything more relaxing than a cup of joe and a great read? We don’t think so, especially when your coffee or cappuccino flavor is Pumpkin Spice! Whatever your text of choice – novel, short story, poetry, non-fiction – we think you’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated after losing yourself in a good book for a while.
7. Hygge? Heck Yeah.
Have you heard the term “hygge”? It’s a Danish word for a feeling of coziness and contentment, and represents a lifestyle practiced by many as the temperature begins to fall. Even if you’re a summer soul at heart, everyone can enjoy a crisp autumn morning spent in a warm hoodie with a steaming cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee in hand. It’s all about enjoying the little things, like fuzzy socks, your favorite candle, and a pumpkin bar or two. Who’s counting?
8. Have a Virtual Coffee Date
By now everyone is well acquainted with virtual connection. FaceTime, Google Meet, Zoom, you name it. Have a friend you can’t see in person or who lives far away? Why not invite them to a virtual coffee date! It’s easy: grab a cup of your favorite coffee (Pumpkin Spice Coffee or Cappuccino from The Store, of course 😉) and hop on your device! You’ll be surprised how quickly a virtual video chat will feel like you’re sitting across from your friend in a fancy coffee shop. Good conversation will warm you up, even on the chilliest of fall days.
There are so many ways to enjoy autumn in the Midwest. No matter how you spend the season, Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Cappuccino from The Store will keep you energized and toasty through it all. Happy fall, y’all!
