Starbucks offers multiple different fall drinks to help celebrate the fall season.

    October 1 marks National Coffee Day, a drink many enjoy especially during the fall season. At the start of October Dukin’ offers free coffee Mondays, while Starbucks offers a similar offer. Sophomore Franchesca Dagon thinks it is the perfect day for National Coffee Day because of fall drinks. 

    “The weather is perfect for fall drinks,” Dagon says. 

    October marks a transition from summer to fall, signified by leaves falling off trees.

    “It’s getting colder and it’s a good transition into the coffee season,” sophomore Kyla Altman said.

    Since the weather gets colder during fall, both Dagon and Altman believe that coffee in general is good.  

    “I think you could have [coffee] whenever you want, but I personally only have it in fall because it really fulfills the fall vibe,” Dagon said. “I like it because they are a comfort drink for me and  help me relax.”

    Fall drinks are extremely popular as of now. According to Restaurant business online, interim CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz verified that recently, Starbucks hit their highest sales record in its 51-year old history. 

    “If you have it all year, then there’s no joy of having it as a fall drink,” Altman said.

    Coffee stores, including Starbucks and Dunkin’, advertise their fall drinks starting late September to get ready for the fall transition to start.  

    “Pumpkin chai tea latte or pumpkin spice latte,”Dagon said, confirming it is her favorite fall drink. “Pumpkin cream cold brew from starbucks,” Altman said.  

    The Pumpkin chai tea latte was added to the Starbucks menu just this year while the pumpkin cream cold brew from Starbucks has been a constant favorite.

    According to restaurant business online, “coffee consumers’ pumpkin obsession is apparently growing,” which shows October is a month in which many choose to drink their fall-inspired coffee beverages. 

    “I don’t really like other fall drinks because coffee is one of the only things that really emphasizes the fall vibes,” Dagon said.

    Fall vibes include items such as pumpkins, sweaters, blankets, and orange and red leaves.

    “A perfect fall day would be cool weather, 65 degrees, a pumpkin chai tea latte and being able to stay in bed, watch movies, go on a walk on a road with red and orange tree leaves everywhere,” Dagon says.
