When a group of Starbucks employees teamed up to create a fall espresso beverage, launching a nationwide trend that would extend far beyond coffee didn’t factor into the equation.

“Nobody knew back then what it would grow to be,” says Peter Dukes, who was the product manager who led the development of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. “It’s taken on a life of its own.”

More than 14 years later, the “PSL” is an annual tradition for many and today, the original handcrafted beverage makes its official return to Starbucks stores nationwide.
