Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte returns August 30

Customer favorites Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and Apple Crisp Macchiato are also back, now made with oat milk.

The first sip of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew signals the unofficial start of the fall season for many customers, and Starbucks celebrates its return alongside a full menu of fall favorites.


From Tuesday August 30, the emblematic Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), is back for its 19th year. Craft drink combines Starbucks® Signature Espresso and steamed milk with flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to complement the real pumpkin in the sauce. Topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice, PSL is available hot, iced or blended in US stores throughout the season while supplies last.

Also available for a limited time is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Infusion, which is back on the menu for a fourth year. Made with Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, the fan-favorite fall sip is topped with a cold pumpkin cream mousse and a dusting of pumpkin spice.

First introduced to the fall menu last year, the Apple Crisp Macchiato returns with a twist – now made with creamy oat milk and Starbucks® blond espresso as standard recipe. Inspired by the flavors of hot, gooey apple crisp paired with a cup of coffee, the Apple Crispy Oat Milk Macchiato combines layered flavors of apple, cinnamon and brown sugar with a spicy apple drizzle.

“Making Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato with Starbucks® Blonde Espresso gives the drink a soft, smooth base that binds all the flavors together,” said Harvey Rojas Mora, Starbucks Beverage Developer. “Oat milk adds creaminess and brings out the oat flavors of a traditional apple crisp topping.”

The Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato is available hot, iced and blended at US Starbucks stores throughout the season while supplies last.
