It’s finally come over to the UK!
My friend Ingrid told me about these years ago and they make a regular appearance in Canada and the US every autumn. I hope this does the same, but at the moment it just says its limited time only. I tried one while in Seattle at the beginning of the year and liked it, so was really happy when the email came through last week 🙂
During my awful week I took some time out to go try one before they are on full release. I went for the normal one they serve so it came with whipped cream.
I really like this drink. It makes so much sense in autumn to have a drink that has warming spices in. I have no idea whether it is actually pumpkin or more a of mix of cinnamon and cloves and other spices, but it is a really nice blend and something I am going to try to recreate at home.
I have had another since this one and asked for it without the cream and much preferred it. The cream makes it a lot sweeter than it needs to be. I liked it as a normal latte with the warming spices. Although I do recommend stirring it before you drink it as the second one I got to go and all the syrup was at the bottom. I will also need to ask for it extra how next time as on both occasions it cooled down very quickly.
It is nice to have a different drink every so often. It is also an excuse for me to go and sit in a coffee shop for a while and think. I loved the drink and sitting down this week. I don’t do that enough anymore. I think that was what I enjoyed most about my trip earlier this year – being able to take time out to just sit and be.
