Don’t tell the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but it’s got competition…and the call is coming from inside the house. Or to be more accurate…from the very same milk steamer. 

On the very day the PSL returns to stores (for the 13th year!), Starbucks has released a shiny new addition to their fall menu: The Chile Mocha.

The Chile Mocha, is, well, just that – espresso and steamed milk, steeped in cocoa and a spicy blend, crowned with glorious whipped cream dusted with more chocolate and ancho/cayenne pepper. 

Pairs nicely with the crunch of fall leaves and the sad buzz of all those texts from PSL you won’t be answering, because, well, you’ve moved on.
