Is This Starbucks’ (SBUX) Next Pumpkin Space Latte?

Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is a drink that many wait eagerly for each fall. The company has now added a new drink to their fall lineup that could have people even more excited.

It’s called Chile Mocha and it’s topped with cayenne, ancho chile, paprika, cinnamon, sea salt, and a little sugar.

Loyalty customers can begin ordering Starbucks’ Chile Mocha on September 3rd and it will be the coffee giant’s new seasonal beverage.

The drink officially launches on Tuesday with the launch of Pumpkin Spice Latte.

“Our customers expect Pumpkin Spice every year … but we also need to continue to innovate,” Mackenzie Karr, a coffee education specialist at Starbucks, told Business Insider.

“We’ve kind of taken the PSL, and taken the S and really blown it up.”

“I think if we ever developed something as iconic as the pumpkin spice, that would be a huge thing to celebrate,” Karr said. “But, I think that a lot of our [limited-time offerings] go with the trends — what people are talking about, what people are doing. I would love for this to be iconic, but you know, maybe next year there will be something completely different that people are interested in.”
