A Taste of Autumn: Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Latte

As the days turn colder, there’s nothing quite like cozying up with a warm beverage that captures the essence of autumn. The Pumpkin Spice Latte, or PSL for short, has become an iconic symbol of the season—a delicious blend of pumpkin, spices, and velvety espresso that warms both the body and the soul.

Legend has it that the Pumpkin Spice Latte originated in Seattle, Washington, where rain-soaked coffee lovers sought comfort in a cup. One particularly blustery day, a creative barista decided to infuse a latte with the flavors of fall, and the PSL was born. Since then, it has gained a devoted following and has become a staple in coffee shops worldwide.
