We just celebrated national coffee day, which is a day close to my heart, so evidently, I decided to share with you my unpopular opinion.
I don’t like pumpkin spice lattes. I love coffee, I enjoy its taste and to be completely honest, I drink it out of necessity of functioning every day. It is my equivalent of ambrosia. Once, I had my coffee, life is brighter, I hear birds singing, and your well being is not in a question any more. You’re welcome. No need to thank me!
Now, back to me not particularly caring about pumpkin spice lattes. Please, don’t start yelling. I know, I know… Pumpking spice lattes are the staples of fall, according to the internet and the demand of customers, as soon as September comes around. It is considered the epitome of leaves falling of the trees, sweater weather, all things that make us happy and the best excuse to start getting all of our scarves to match our boots and our instagram story floods with pictures of you drinking this (cough, cough) atrocity. I have to admit, I love pumpkins, the taste of pumpkin pies, I love the candles that smell like pumpkins and yes, I, always, decorate my home with autumn decorations. Fall has so much more to offer. Crisp weather, apple picking, if you’re in the US thanksgiving and Halloween. Of course, pumpkin spice as a smell and taste is a big part of the fall process, however, there is no reason to put pumpkin spice in a coffee drink. No reason. It tastes oily and maybe that’s none of my business, but it doesn’t taste like coffee. I tried it more than once in different coffeshops, in order to see what the hype has been and let me tell you, I am dissapointed! I am going to cut to the chase and say that I don’t understand why or how this drink became popular. Why? Who decided, oh a spice for a pie… I bet it would taste awesome in EVERYTHING! Did you know that they even make marshmallows that taste like this?! I’m done and nothing you can tell me can change my mind!
Here are some lovely coffee pictures to warm your heart and maybe help you celebrate this nectar of the gods the proper way ! All from the Pixabay.
