Peet’s Coffee: Spiced Pumpkin Latte

Posted By I Love Pumpkins on December 2, 2008

Smooth, calm, hypnotic.

Smooth, calm, hypnotic.

Now here’s a Pumpkin Latte you can believe in! Amazingly smooth and mellow pumpkin taste.

Even my coffee likes people-watching on Fillmore.

Enjoying the weather.

It’s not too sweet, not too sugary, and… once you’re past the foam, you discover that it’s not artificially colored either. Remember that orangey color you found in Starbucks’ Pumpkin Latte? You won’t find it here and you probably won’t miss it. Peet’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is delicious and more mature than the same drink from Starbucks. The top notes are pumpkinny but it satsifies like coffee.

Does it win over Starbucks? Not sure. Peet’s is more subtle and Starbucks’ is more outgoing. Each has its own strengths. Need help deciding? Check out these links for my reviews of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Scones and Muffins as well as sneak peek at Starbucks’ Secret Spice!

p.s. If you want to try some pumpkin satisfaction at home, you can buy the same Monin Pumpkin Syrup at my store as used at Peet’s.

Even my latte enjoys people-watching on Fillmore.
