While autumn is a season synonymous with knitted jumpers and crunching leaves, iced coffee continues to be a best seller despite cooler weather.

In the past four years alone, Starbucks has seen cold beverages grow by nearly 45 per cent worldwide, with Millennials and Gen Z-ers twice as likely to choose cold coffee.  

Meanwhile, Costa  has announced its most exciting Autumn menu including a British Chicken & Mushroom Toastie, made with British roast chicken breast, roasted mushrooms, and a cheese bechamel sauce, all encased between that all-important cheese topped white bread. 

For those fancying a sweet treat, there’s also the Terry’s Chocolate Orange Brownie- a guaranteed to be a new fan-favourite this season.

Starbucks has delighted fans by announcing the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte which will be available across the UK from next week. The beloved autumnal beverage – made with Starbucks Espresso Roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce and steamed milk and topped with whipped cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves – will cost £3.55. Right: The PSL Frappusino is back this year

Perhaps with the lacklustre summer sunshine to blame, the drink launched earlier than ever. Last year, it landed on UK menus on 25th September. 

While Starbucks first launched the drink in the US 17 years ago, British chains have created their own versions in recent years.

Embracing the US trend for autumnal drinks both Pret and Greggs both sold a Pumpkin Spice Latte last year, while Costa sold a ‘Bonfire Latte’.   

Costa are expected to announce their autumn drinks in the next few weeks.
