Bitter Barista’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe Reloaded

Fall 2022 is upon us, and you know what that means. Every yoga-pants-wearing basic bitch is once again about to frequent their favorite overpriced coffee conglomerate so they can post pictures of their pretentious coffee beverages to social media for all to witness.

Even though I have become somewhat of a purist when it comes to drinking my coffee unadulterated by any form of cream or sugar, I do enjoy a nice, delectable latte from time to time. In lieu of paying an exorbitant amount of money for a steaming hot cup of mediocrity, I've decided to teach you all how to make your very own pumpkin spice latte from the confines of your own home.

You can kick back with this tasty latte as is or add some booze to the mix if you're having an extra hard day at work dealing with exceptionally egregious meetings.

This recipe yields several mugs' worth of coffee, so feel free to adjust the measurements. And remember, there's no shame in letting out your inner basic bitch every now and again.

Bitter Barista's Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Items Needed:

  • 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream
  • Pan
  • Whisk


  1. Brew your choice of coffee (Black Rifle Coffee Company's Headless Horseman Roast is delicious, if you're looking for a suggestion).
  2. Put the coffee, milk, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla in a pan over medium heat.
  3. Whisk together until steaming. Do not boil!
  4. Pour the concoction into coffee mugs until they're about three-quarters of the way full.
  5. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
