Pumpkin spice latte

The arrival of the pumpkin spice latte heralds the start of Autumn as much as digging out your big coat and kicking through the leaves on the way to work. Inspired by the taste of a slice of pumpkin pie followed by a sip of espresso back in 2003, Starbucks went on to sell more than 200 million PSLs over the next ten years. The iconic drink now has its own Instagram account and has inspired a billion (approx.) pumpkin food trends, including pumpkin spiced fries in McDonald’s Japan!

Fancy making your own? Here’s an easy recipe – you’ll just need some coffee, some pumpkin puree, milk and a pinch of nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.

If, like more than half the respondents in our Facebook poll, you prefer to drink your coffee clean, our Brazilian single origin coffee has notes of caramel and pecan giving your classic espresso an Autumnal vibe.
