This spring, spice up your traditional coffee with these fun and refreshing espresso drinks. That’s right, you can always opt for a cold or hot coffee during spring. It all depends on your preferences. The best coffees for spring are the ones with a lavender, honey, and berries infused.
Now, I have combined a list of spring coffees that can suit you well, so let’s glance at them, shall we?
What Is Best Coffee For Spring?
Spring is all about sunny and rainy days, in this time you can be craving something soothing, sweet, and savory.
Ever wondered if you can categorize your coffee selection into lavender, honey, and berries? If not, you can start right away.
With good reason, this trio is dominating the nation’s trendiest coffee menus. These springtime favorites are delicious hot or cold! Let’s dive right into them:
The Flower Circle
Lavender, rose, and hibiscus lattes dominate the best of spring lists, and I can see why after trying these recipes! Many of the world’s best coffees have lovely floral notes, and while you might not think of mixing lavender essence with your coffee, I guarantee the combination can be spectacular. Floral coffee drinks are light and soothing, with a gentle sweetness and calming fragrance. They are elegant, soft, and beautifully aromatic. Some of my favorites are listed below.
Lavender Honey Iced Latte: This refreshingly sweet coffee is made by combining a bright, light cold brew coffee with a homemade lavender-honey infusion. I recommend using a moderately acidic Central American coffee, such as El Salvadoran, to make this coffee.
Here is how you can make a lavender honey latte in the comfort of your home:
The Hibiscus Latte: This delightfully light, slightly tart, silky latte is invigorating and packed with make-your-skin-glow antioxidants. It’s made from real hibiscus flowers mixed with lemon, ginger, coffee, and some sugar, however, you can try adding some honey instead of sugar.
Rose de Coffee: Rose coffee is the ideal complement to a sunny day. It is elegant, light, smooth, and fragrant. This easy rose coffee recipe, made with coffee, rose water, and a pinch of cardamom, is as delicious as it is relaxing.
The Berries Fusion
Ready to turn your ordinary cup of joe into a health-boosting, antioxidant-rich, feel-good power drink? I thought so, too! Adding berries to your coffee this spring to transform it from a comforting beverage to a naturally sweet cup of body-boosting deliciousness is the best you can think about.
Blueberry Coffee Cake Latte: This delectable and simple recipe tastes like a breakfast treat in a cup! This tasty latte is as much fun to make as it is to drink, made with your favorite coffee, biscuits, blueberry jam, and a touch of sugar.
Blueberry Cold Brew Latte: This cold brew masterpiece will have you wondering whether it’s coffee or my new favorite dessert. This latte, made with frozen blueberries, a touch of blueberry syrup, and cold brew coffee, takes only minutes to make and is sure to rival any latte you could buy in a café. With this recipe, I recommend using Central or South American coffee.
Iced Blackberry Latte: This iced blackberry latte is tart, invigorating, and delicious, made with fresh blackberries, raw sugar, milk, and espresso. Given the berries’ natural acidity and strong flavor, I recommend pairing this recipe with a strong coffee, such as a french roast or a dark, non-spicy blend.
Iced Raspberry Latte: This sparkling latte is sweet, vibrant, and refreshing on a hot day, made with espresso (or any strongly brewed dark roast), homemade raspberry syrup, and milk. If you like morning smoothies, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to this beauty, blend it, and you’ve got yourself a protein-packed, naturally sweet raspberry coffee smoothie.
The Honey Twist
Anyone who follows my blog knows how I like to experiment with coffee. Honey is not only a mild natural sweetener, but it is also high in antioxidants, can help lower blood pressure, fights inflammation, and makes a very creamy cup. Here are some of my favorite variations on the original honey coffee.
Cafe Con Miel: This traditional Spanish cup contains the original honey coffee. This soothing, delicious coffee, made with coffee, honey, milk, and pinches of nutmeg and cinnamon, is the epitome of comfort in a cup!
Iced Salted Honey Latte: This iced salted honey latte is made with espresso (or strong brewed dark coffee), milk, honey, a dash of sugar, and a pinch of salt. This latte is simple to make and even simpler to drink, and it’s sure to become your new iced latte obsession!
Honey Ginger Cinnamon Latte: Coffee, ginger, cinnamon, and honey I don’t think it could get any better! This flavorful, creamy cup is made with fresh ginger infused in spicy milk and freshly brewed espresso (or strongly brewed dark coffee). This recipe only takes about 5 minutes to prepare and is well worth the time.

What Can You Have With Coffee During Spring?
There are plenty of options that you can opt for to go with coffee, it can be exquisite but very normal, and you always don’t have to go for fancy. Here are some ideas that you can pair up with:
Don’t forget about the coffee cake. Are you having a bad day? Coffee cake, when paired with a medium Hawaiian or Nicaraguan roast, will have you singing a different tune by the end.
The donut is yet another iconic food to pair with coffee. Donuts come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be decorated with a variety of sprinkles, icings, and glazes. In all cases, the sweetness of a good donut can perfectly offset the bitterness of a cup of coffee, especially one made with milk.
Bagels can be eaten plain, toasted, or stuffed with cream cheese or other fillings. They’re also a great food to pair with a cup of coffee. If you’re not eating your bagel sweet, a mellower, sweeter coffee might be the best match.
This well-known French pastry goes well with Colombian or Peruvian coffee. These regions are known for producing beans with a sweeter body that isn’t too acidic or overpowering, similar to honeycomb and vanilla bean notes.
This may surprise you, but any berry (alone or baked in sweets) goes well with coffee. Berries are especially tasty when combined with Tanzanian and Haitian coffee varieties.
Staying in the realm of breakfast foods, the crepe is a dish that pairs beautifully with coffee. Some crepes are sweet, while others can be savory with meats, cheeses, or vegetables. They all shine when paired with the right coffee.
Scrambled eggs are another breakfast item that pairs well with coffee. Scrambled eggs can be made simply with salt and pepper, or with vegetables and other ingredients. However, a simple scramble with a nice, strong cup of coffee is all you need.
Grilled Cheese Toast
Many of the previous bites are well known for their successful collaborations with coffee, but the grilled cheese sandwich is relatively unknown. It’s one of the best options for coffee pairing. Crispy, toasted bread sandwiched between gooey, melted cheese pairs well with a strong cup of coffee.
