In comparison to the aesthetics of Dunkin’s drink, the pumpkin spice latte from Peet’s looks like a beige cardigan from Nordstrom. The drink comes with no caramel drizzle or whipped cream, which is a crime, and this is before you realize those toppings will cost you an extra 40 cents to the already steep $4.55. Still, this fall beverage tastes like a true pumpkin spice latte and already has me thinking about fall leaves and cozy blankets. The espresso and pumpkin spice flavors complement each other nicely, and the local company has high-quality coffee. It’s no surprise that this is my favorite pumpkin spice latte. The drink tastes like a warm hug, which makes it easy to forgive the small sizes and high cost. Peet’s is the target fall latte for coffee drinkers who don’t mind a drink on the pricey side.
