PSL Alternatives

We are not opposed to the delicious fall flavors that accompany that first sip of a Starbucks PSL, but we would be remiss if we didn't mention some epic autumn alternatives to the pumpkin spice lattes we all love (come on, admit it). Check out our list of nearby coffee shops with our favorite spiced espresso drinks -- the real reason for the fall season! But before you head out for your pre-winter pick-me-up...

GRENDEL'S COFFEE HOUSE: BEOWULF FOREST MOCHA

We love a monster reference, and we're big fans of Grendel's own origin material being used to create a devilishly good spin on a mocha latte. The Beowulf Forest Mocha adds a dash of raspberry and orange syrup to create a fruity ode to fall flavors, mixed with the delicious mocha taste we all know and love. Get cozy with any number of their signature drinks -- they're just a quick walk across the street from the hotel. Show your Jupiter NEXT hotel card, and they'll give you a 10% discount, too!

HAPPY CUP COFFEE BAR: CORAZÓN

Happy Cup is a coffee bar with batch-roasted artisan coffee crafted with care by adults with developmental disabilities right around the corner from Jupiter NEXT. Head in and try their spin on a spicy mocha latte with signature drink Corazón, which combines their roasted espresso, house-made, vegan horchata, and chocolate sauce. Topped off with a spritz of orange essence and some shaved Mexican chocolate, this favorite of ours is completely vegan and utterly delicious. Looking for something longer term? Check out their coffee subscription service to keep the flow going all year long.

RANGER CHOCOLATE CO: CHAI LATTE

Another walkable option for fall fare is a quick jaunt over to Cup & Bar coffee shop, which houses Ranger Chocolate Co. and a delectable mix of housemade latte drinks and chocolate bars to satisfy all your autumnal cravings. We highly recommend Cup & Bar's signature Chai Latte, featuring a combo of tea and spices that will set your day off right. Make sure you add on a Ranger Chocolate bar, too -- We reccomend snagging a bar of Polochic, which is named after the southeastern Alta Verapaz where the high quality cacao is produced, is one of Guatemala’s hottest micro-climates and is farmed by more than 50% female farmers.

CREMA COFFEE & BAKERY: CARAMEL SUTRA

Well, you know we love a good innuendo, so we have to mention the aptly-named Caramel Sutra Latte from nearby coffee shop and bakery, Crema. With housemade caramel sauce and sweet vanilla bean syrup, this hot latte is bound to keep you warm inside as the temperature outside starts to drop. We can't mention Crema without dropping some dolla dolla bills on their bonkers baked good selection. Feeling fancy? Try a savory galette! Want something lighter? Fruit scones are the way to go. Whatever you get, you'll be in for a treat!

DELICIOUS DONUTS: NO COFFEE NEEDED

Not a coffee person? That's cool with us. With that in mind, we gotta give a shout out to our pals at Delicious Donuts! What are our fall faves at the donut shop? How can we decide?? From their Maple Old Fashioned to the enormous Apple Fritter, you'll find something for each and every autumn taste you desire. Head into the shop and make sure to check out their fall selection of specials, which changes often. These delightful donuts tend to sell out before day's end, so call ahead if you're curious: 503-233-1833!
