    ‘Tis the season…you either love it or you hate it. Though we here at Roasty are on the “love” team, we know that sometimes the pumpkin spice craze can sometimes get a little too crazy. Nonetheless, a fall day can be even more “fall-bulous” with this perfect pumpkin spice latte, which you can make in comfort of your own home. 

    For this recipe, we used adjustable amounts of sugar and real pumpkin puree. And as with most drinks, you can use strong brewed hot coffee or pull yourself a shot of espresso. We used a handy-dandy Breville espresso maker and it turned out perfectly! Whatever method you use, you are sure to FALL in love with this drink.

    Just so you know, if you click on a product on RoastyCoffee.com and decide to buy it, we may earn a small commission.

    Tip: Pumpkin pie spice makes it twice as nice, and you can buy it pre-made or concoct your own from spices you already have. For this recipe, we suggest a make-shift spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

    After mixing the puree and milk, add the vanilla. Whisk and heat until the mixture is warmed. Make sure the heat isn’t too high. If the milk starts to boil it can easily become spoiled.
