With the light autumn breeze sweeping through the city along with fall colors and activities, Los Angelenos are embracing the elements of the new season, including the indulgence of warm, delectable espressos. Although many coffee lovers are turning to Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte for their seasonal espresso fix, there are tons of L.A. cafés who have mastered the art of crafting their own signature brews. Here’s a look at where you can get your hands on some of the best seasonal espresso blends that the city has to offer.


The baristas at Demitasse are no stranger to experimenting with innovative ways to transform espresso, coffee and tea into a flavorful experience. As a result, one of the most popular specialty drinks that fans rave over is the Pistachio Rose Latte. A concoction of pistachio butter, rose water, honey syrup and milk, this delicious latte is rich like velvet in taste and texture and will leave you savoring every sip.


Although warm drinks are all the rave this season, the Sea Salt Caramel Iced Coffee is the exception. With the perfect blend of sweet and savory, this iced espresso drink is the perfect morning pick-me-up. Enjoy a cup while taking a morning stroll along the shores of Santa Monica.
