Ok Autumn is officially here! So what comes out in autumn….thick socks, silly jumpers, even more silly bobble hats…. No PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES! Woohoo so it’s not all bad is it?
So what is a pumpkin spiced latte – of course it comes originally from the good ol’ USA and yes I’m sorry to use the ‘S’ word but Starbucks created it January 2003, since then they have sold 200 million GULP!
It is basically a coffee made with a mix of traditional autumn spice flavours for example cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, we use a pumpkin spiced syrup for create these flavours. We then add steamed milk, and espresso coffee topped with whipped cream which we flavour with caramel syrup and cinnamon powder sprinkles , so it actually tastes like pumpkin pie rather than real pumpkins!
They are really gorgeous and well worth trying if you like your coffee sweet, although rumour has it that the ‘S’ word are now developing a pumpkin spice made of real pumpkins … mmm interesting?
Catch them whilst they are here!
