It is the season when coffee shops everywhere start releasing their seasonal drinks. One such drink that has become a staple of fall is the Pumpkin Spice Latte. In Saudi Arabia, dr. CAFE COFFEE has released their own edition created with the refined Saudi palate in mind. Here we’ll compare their Spiced Pumpkin Latte with the gold standard of Starbucks’.
First up, texture. dr. CAFE COFFEE’s Spiced Pumpkin Latte has a rich and creamy texture, and indulgent mouthfeel that is the hallmark of an exceptional latte. The milk used in dr. CAFE COFFEE’s latte is frothed to a perfect velvety consistency. On the other hand, Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte has a classic body and texture that people have loved for decades.
Next, the flavor profile. While both drinks use the classic pumpkin spice flavor, dr. CAFE COFFEE’s Spiced Pumpkin Latte takes it a step further by perfectly balancing the sweetness and the spiciness. The addition of cinnamon on top adds a warm and comforting aroma. However, some may argue that Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte has a more classic flavour.
Lastly, the coffee itself. The specialty coffee brewed throughout dr. CAFE COFFEE shops is evident in each sip of their Spiced Pumpkin Latte. Whereas the coffee used at Starbuck is comforting like an old friend. Any true coffee lover will be able to taste the difference in coffee and it’s really a question of personal preference.
It is clear that both dr. CAFE COFFEE and Starbucks offer incredibly delicious seasonal beverages to celebrate fall. While dr. CAFE COFFEE’s version has a rich texture and balanced flavor profile, Starbucks’ latte has its own celebrated classic flavor that the world has come to love. So, there is no winner, just two great fall offerings! So grab a cup, find a cozy corner, and sip away the season!
