Starbucks fans rejoice! The global coffee giant’s most iconic seasonal beverage, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, is finally available in South Africa again after its local and limited release debut last year. It was an instant hit the first time with some stores selling out within a few short days, and the same hype is expected this time so best you get yours quick!

Coinciding with the autumn season in the US, this indulgent seasonal treat, affectionately known as the PSL, is a perfectly handcrafted espresso with a pumpkin spice infusion, creamy steamed milk and cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. It’s then finished with whipped cream and more pumpkin spice on top! There’s even an iced version in the form of the PSL Frappuccino for those warmer days.

Arriving this year in Heritage Month, Starbucks is also releasing a limited edition food menu to pay tribute to our local culinary history. Look forward to Heritage Day Milk Tart, Bobotie Phyllo Roll with chutney and a Rooibos macaron.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available from today at all Starbucks stores. For more information visit their website.
