If you want to celebrate fall but are sick of pumpkin beer, pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin wing sauce, try the classic caramel apple latte at St. Thomas Coffee Roasters in Linglestown as reported by The Patriot-News in late September 2012.

“In my opinion, apple is more of a fall flavor than pumpkin is,” says barista Andrea Musselman. “What we think of pumpkin is usually just a particular spice blend.”

In this drink, two espresso shots are blended with caramel and apple syrups, topped with steamed 2% milk, whipped cream, and a delicate caramel drizzle, creating a drink that’s like a caramel apple without the crunch. The in-house roasted espresso blend keeps this decadent latte from becoming too sweet.

Sip while looking out the large windows of this historic coffee shop in downtown Linglestown to truly drink in the beauty of fall, and pick up a pound or two of in-house roasted coffee or gourmet tea to take home.

  1. Oh the barista you quoted is so right–“pumpkin flavored” drinks and other things are usually just pumpkin spice! I love the actual pumpkin flavor (with the spices) and for that reason the only place I get pumpkin chai is Grand Central Bagel in Lancaster because they put real pumpkin in the drink. Can’t wait to have one next time I’m down there.

    • So good to know that some real pumpkin drinks exist out there. Those I would like to try! Pumpkin can be such a great ingredient; it shouldn’t have to be reduced to just sugars and syrups and spices.

      • Very well put. I think they usually keep it available into winter, so perhaps you can make a trip there during Christmas break!
