It’s that time of year again when everything from lattes to candles is pumpkin spice flavored. Well, the pumpkin spice latte, at least when we’re talking about pumpkin spice latte, and that’s how I feel about this one.

This pumpkin spice latte tastes pretty much like a regular latte. There’s a nice dose of cinnamon and nutmeg but it really just tastes like a regular latte, except this pumpkin spice latte just looks more interesting when you dip into it. If a regular pumpkin spice latte tastes a lot like a latte, and if it’s not something you want to drink with a drink on your finger, it’s not a very good latte.

This pumpkin spice latte really doesn’t need a spoon to dip into. It’s a great way to get the pumpkin spice flavor without even needing to use a spoon, and you could even whip up a latte for an afternoon if you want. Just don’t let it go to the bottom of the cup though, if you want it to remain fresh. This pumpkin spice latte is not a super-fast pour, especially if there’s cinnamon on the bottom. This pumpkin spice latte is also really thin, so if you want to add a little bit of extra sugar for a smooth finish, do so in the recipe, but if your cup is too slim, you may not like the results.

The good news is that this pumpkin spice latte is super easy and takes about 10 minutes per 1 cup. That’s a whole lot less time than I thought!
