Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything! Some love it and some don’t care for it much at all, but no matter your opinion nothing can stop the season of Pumpkin Spice. Of course it all began way back in history with a pie, but now every autumn this flavor is widely available in pretty much everything from bakery treats, ice cream and shakes, snacks and cereals, tea and of course, coffee….
This is the season that lovers of specialty coffee drinks look forward to–the season of the Pumpkin Spice Latte! This handcrafted latte is flavored with a sweetened blend of the traditional fall spices cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. All steamed up in milk and espresso, this beverage creates a fall festival in your mouth with each sip.
Whether you’re a PSL fan or not, fall is a great season to get cozy with a cup of warm coffee.
On a crisp fall morning with a hint of chill in the air or pouring buckets of rain all afternoon, either is the perfect kind of day to taste some fine coffee from any of these local roasters.
