Living behind a Starbucks makes it very easy to stop for the OG of Pumpkin Spice Lattes every day on the way to the office, but this fall I'm challenging myself to expand my horizons and explore the pumpkin goodness hiding in local Treasure Valley coffee shops!

After the Memorial Day pool party extravaganza where half the Treasure Valley showed up at my apartment to win Boise Music Festival tickets, it's no secret that I live off Parkcenter in Southeast Boise.  A few days ago my boyfriend and I were driving home when I realized the Cafe Capri that was nestled in the plaza at Parkcenter and Mallard was gone.  In it's place was a new coffee shop called Zero Six Coffee Fix.

I decided to make this my first stop on this fall's pumpkin adventure and these people speak my language! When I asked the barista what they had that was pumpkin, her answer was "everything!" So being new to the coffee shop, I asked what she recommended.  The answer changed my life!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Pumpkin Spice Caramel Chider! Part chai tea latte, part hot apple cider married together with the perfect hint of pumpkin spice!  And at $4.77 for a medium, it's going to help my debit card survive pumpkin spice season! If you love everything pumpkin, do yourself a favor and try this new fall creation.
