A Taste For: What's Brewing

Katie Corrigan
As the days grow shorter, the smells of pumpkin pie and caramel apples tease the tongue. Combined with the aroma of fresh-roasted coffee, the scent of spice can cut through the crisp autumn air to wake up your taste buds from a summer slumber. We asked local baristas how they capture fall flavor, and they responded with everything from brewing to baking. Pair your drink with a perfect dessert, and savor the season.
