Key Strength – Adaptability
The Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) is a fall favorite. Signature espresso blended with the unmistakable spices of fall – cinnamon, nutmeg and clove – smooth with steamed milk, topped with delectably sweetened whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices.
Pumpkin Chai – You have recently been affirmed by the outburst of pro-introvert articles circulating Facebook. You are quiet and unassuming, but have oh so much going on inside that head of yours. You would drink more fall beverages, but you are often overwhelmed by the possibility of the coffee shop being crowded. Lucky for you, there is a mix you can buy to make Pumpkin Chai at home.

Key Strength – Intellection
It’s got all the warmth of cinnamon, pumpkin pieces, cloves and cardamom, plus the sweetness of caramel and pumpkin candy. For a true autumn treat, top it up with steamed milk and stir in a spoonful of brown sugar. It’ll make you wish it were fall all year round.
Caramel Apple Spice – You are just entering the world of coffee and all of its related beverages. You love the vibe of coffee shops, but the menu still looks really overwhelming. Nevertheless, you are eager to learn and become a complete coffee junkie. You are likely a freshman and find safety in a good apple cider.

Key Strength – Woo
Espresso and steamed milk, blended with mocha sauce and toffee nut flavored syrup. Topped with sweetened whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a mixture of turbinado sugar and sea salt.
Coffee Black – You hate seasonal drinks. Actually you just hate seasons in general. You would rather just play guitar, work in your garden, and make your own coffee with your French press. You are likely a hipster and in a few years when pumpkin drinks are not so popular you will love them.
