Mission Proper’s Caramel Apple Latte

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Sept. 9, 2023

As far as fall-themed treats are concerned, it doesn’t get better than the decadent Caramel Apple Latte from Mission Proper on Old Mission Peninsula. Inspired by the nostalgia of autumn baking, this fresh-picked coffee drink starts with house apple butter (layered with local fruit and warming notes of cinnamon and clove) and a shot of Panther Coffee’s organic Casa Blend espresso. From there, baristas add your choice of milk—opt for Moomer’s products or creamy oat—and a drizzle of vegan caramel sauce. No tricks here, we promise! Released along with the café’s fall menu, this delightfully-autumnal sip pairs best with a piping-hot piece of apple strudel or a chilly morning in the orchard. Enjoy one hot or iced (the latter comes with a caramel cold-foam!). Sizes range from 8-16 ounces. Find Mission Proper at 13795 Seven Hills Rd., Suite B, in Traverse City. missionproper.co
