Alright, Here Are All Of The Places To Get Pumpkin Spice in Laramie
Plus, some other fun fall flavors coming to the Gem City! Starbucks released it's famed Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor a full week earlier than last year, so we called around to all of the coffee shops in Laramie to find out what their schedule looks like for the mythical fall drink, and what other fun things they will be offering as the leaves change this year.
Coal Creek Coffee, both Downtown and Uptown, offers Pumpkin Spice year round, so you don't have to wait for fall to enjoy the fall flavors. They also will be featuring their Hot Apple Pie seasonal drink as the weather chills in the next 2 or 3 weeks. This fall, they're also offering a Spinach, Bacon and Ranch pizza as their seasonal special, but only at the Downtown location.
Night Heron also carried Pumpkin Spice year-round, but they also bring out exciting fall flavors like Tea Infused Cider, which lets you infuse cider with any of the teas they have on their menu, and the Brown Butter Latte.
Grounds goes all out for fall, offering Pumpkin Spice Chai as well as the traditional PSL. They also offer Butter Beer Lattes for all of the Harry Potter Fans out there to celebrate the season. Their baked goods are also taking a dip in fall flavors, offering Pumpkin Spice bread, and Pumpkin Spice Muffins with cream cheese frosting.
Turtle Rock doesn't offer Pumpkin Spice yet, but it's for a good reason! They make their Pumpkin Spice from real Pumpkin puree, so obviously, they have to wait for real pumpkins to hit the markets. "Thanks, Starbucks, for making people think they need it in August," jokes the manager, Ashlynn. But they have more than just that, delving into fall specialties like "Autumn In a Cup," that features honey, brown sugar, and cinnamon and tastes like fall, and their brand new fall drink this year, the "Pistol Pete Steamer," made with oat milk.
Java Java Coffee Hut doesn't offer Pumpkin Spice just yet, but they are planning to roll it out later in the month of September.
The University of Wyoming has several on-campus coffee shops, including Rolling Mill Cafe and Encore, both of which proudly brew Starbucks coffee right on campus and will be offering Pumpkin Spice Lattes. New to Campus this year at Book and Bean Cafe in the Coe Library is Peet's Coffee. They'll be brewing up Pumpkin Spice Lattes as well as Vanilla Cardamom Lattes and you can get them hot or cold!
And of course... Starbucks.
Starbucks started the Pumpkin Spice Latte craze 15 years ago with its first incarnation of the treat back in 2003. But really, we recommend shopping local and enjoying all of the great small coffee shops right here in Laradise.
