This Autumn “Caffe Breve” Mocktail is the perfect sweet and creamy beverage dessert to serve up after dinner during the fall and holiday season.  It only takes a few minutes to combine all of the ingredients!

What’s a Caffe Breve?

If you’re unfamiliar with a Caffe Breve / Cafe Breve / Breve Coffee / Breve Latte, it’s a beverage containing espresso and steamed half & half and pronounced “cah-fay Brev-ay”!  This fall mocktail, by no means a replica, is simply inspired by the forever delicious pairing of coffee and half & half.

I recommend a very strongly brewed coffee for the most flavorful drink, but feel free to experiment.

In more of a cocktail mood instead?  Simply add in 1 oz of vodka at the end.  Easy!

Brew the coffee ahead!  To save time the day of serving this mocktail, brew and chill the coffee the day before.  It makes for a nice quick and easy assembly.
