4 Easy And Delicious Coffee Recipes For Students
It's fall once more and that means students are heading back to school. Even this early in the semester, study sessions are already underway and late-night cramming jams are becoming a weekly routine. When you've got papers to write, research to conduct and equations to memorize, there's only one thing that can make it all better: having the comforts of a coffeehouse right at home. No matter what your preference, you can have the ideal coffee experience without going outside. So put on your PJ's, fire up the coffee maker, and put some knowledge in your head while enjoying these three simple and tasty coffee recipes.
1. Do-It-Yourself Pumpkin Spice
'Tis the season for pumpkin treats. Why not add a little autumnal spice to your next study session?
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 3 cups whole milk, hot
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup espresso.
In a blender, combine pumpkin pie spice, sugar, hot milk and vanilla extract. Once the mixture is frothing, pour it into a mug. You'll want about 1/3 of the volume remaining for the coffee. Stir in a freshly brewed espresso or other bold-flavored roast. Top with whipped cream. If you have extra spice, sprinkle a little on top for a pleasing garnish.
Does reading textbooks give you a hankering for something sweet? Reward yourself with a sip of mocha after every turn of the the page.
- 1 1/4 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup or 3 tablespoons chocolate powder
- Freshly brewed coffee or espresso.
In a saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer. Measure out the chocolate syrup or powder into a mug. Fill the mug halfway with hot milk and half with freshly brewed coffee. The Mr. Coffee® Advanced Brew 8-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe works perfectly for this recipe. Give everything a stir and top with whipped cream.

When you've finished that lab report, unwind with a hot mug of cinnamon coffee.
