If you prefer real pumpkin over artificial pumpkin flavouring in your pumpkin spice latte, head to these cafes who go the extra mile to create a true seasonal beverage. Their house-made beverages are launching early October.

“Our PSL is made from scratch — we roast, then purée the pumpkin before adding Haas’ blend of spices. The latte itself is half pumpkin puréé, half milk, with 2 shots of espresso. It’s available now at both Thomas Haas locations in Kitsilano and North Vancouver for $4.20 and is served with a pumpkin truffle on the side. Soy and almond milk are available dairy-free options.
If you know of a cafe serving pumpkin spice lattes with real pumpkin, let me know and I’ll add it to this list.
