Basic bitch season is finally upon us, and while you’ve probably already had your first, second, and third pumpkin spice latte, we’re willing to bet you’ve never tried it in Nitro Cold Brew form.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s secret menu game is coming strong this fall, as the seasonal addition of pumpkin spice sauce means we can start asking for it in Nitro Cold Brew form.
The workers are most likely aware of the Pumpkin Nitro Latte drink, but if they’re not, they certainly have the ingredients for it, so, worst case scenario, you just have to order it as a “Nitro latte with pumpkin sauce added.”
We went to go try the drink ourselves, and the youngster at the register looked at us like we were crazy, going as far as to say, “That’s never been a thing.” Luckily his coworker swooped in, told him that it’s a part of the secret menu, and showed him how to ring it up. They came out to exactly $5 each for a regular-sized drink, which is a weird total, but whatever.
If you’re not familiar with Nitro, it’s nitrogen-infused cold coffee that comes straight from a tap and is ready to serve with no ice needed.
Pro tip: with Nitro as a base, you can actually add any of The Coffee Bean’s flavored sauces to it, whether it’s caramel, peppermint, or pumpkin spice.
We were hoping they’d be a little more orange in color, but if you think we’re pulling your leg, here’s a bright orange photo from their Facebook account:
If you’re one of those people that loves secret menus, this one’s loaded with pumpkin spice, and there’s a good chance you’ll be the first of your friends to try it.
