What is PSL ?
The Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) is a coffee drink made with a mix of traditional fall spice flavors, steamed milk, espresso, and often sugar, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice. Since 2015, it has also contained a small amount of pumpkin puree.
How did PSL come to be ?
The gourd-geous drink, the famed PSL was originally conceived by Peter Dukes . He was a basketball player with a BA in Economics and an MBA from Stanford.
Peter Dukes first came to Starbucks in 2001, and in 2003 he was asked to create a new branded espresso drink for the fall. Convinced a pumpkin pie-inspired latte was an inspired option, he persevered through push-back to institute the drink … and the rest is history.
