Greggs has officially kicked of Pumpkin Spice Latte season with the return of the delicious (and sometimes divisive) autumnal beverage.

Launching nationally ahead of other high street coffee shops, the Greggs Pumpkin Spice Latte costs from £1.95 and like all Greggs’ freshly ground coffee menu, is 100% Fairtrade.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is made with a blend of freshly ground coffee, pumpkin spice flavour syrup and steamed milk – all topped with sweet, tasty cream and a sprinkle of spiced sugar.

The beverage is made using Fairtrade Arabica and Robusta coffee beans from Peru, Colombia, and Tanzania, slow-roasted to create an extra-flavoursome brew.

Though Greggs is famous for menu items such as the Vegan Sausage Roll and Steak Bake, it’s coffee offering is equally as popular, selling 1.5m cups each week – more than 150 per minute.

Hannah Squirrell, customer director at Greggs, said: “The return of the fan-favourite Pumpkin Spice Latte to our menu will no doubt delight our customers nationwide.

“Coffee is exceptionally popular among our customers and we’re excited to be bringing back another delicious offering to our extensive range.”

To give customers the opportunity to beat the crowds and guarantee their first taste of Pumpkin Spice this year, Greggs has its very own click + collect service via its website and app.

For those that don’t want to leave their house or office, they can order via Just Eat.
