At the end of September, a controversial thing happens. The pumpkin latte arrives at nearly every coffee shop and cafe. Whether you love it or hate it, it IS a phenomenon of the 21st century. Most likely, the pumpkin latte is here to stay and from now until the end of October it will be the drink of choice for millions of people around the world.
In New Jersey, the home of Esterbrook, pumpkins have always been a big part of the fall season. Pumpkin patches all over the state are visited by families for hayrides, corn mazes, petting zoos and for choosing pumpkins to decorate for Halloween and trick or treating. While some of those pumpkin farms may now serve pumpkin lattes, they have been serving up family traditions for decades.
In celebration of these time-honored places, we’ve brewed up a little something of our own.
Introducing the JR Pumpkin Latte. It’s our way to mix a little bit of our home state’s heritage with our morning cup of Joe.
