Maple and brown sugar have become popular coffee flavor options over the last few months, especially since chains like Starbucks and Dunkin' added have featured them in various items on their menus. The warm, rich, classic flavors are perfect for the cold weather, even if you prefer it in something like an iced latte. Here are several coffee shops in Pittsburgh offering maple, brown sugar, and similar flavorings.
