In case you missed it, pumpkin spice latte season is upon us.
By now, Starbucks, Costa, Greggs and all of the high street coffee shops have announced the return date of the seasonal hot drink, and the basic bitches have already started queueing at their doors.
If you’re one of them (and trust us, we’re not judging), then we have some news that you might wanna hear.
A company is looking to pay someone £300 to sample all the best PSLs and give their feedback on the best ones.
Sounds like a dream gig for all lovers of pumpkin spice, if you ask us!
The gig comes from clothing brand Pour Moi, which is hiring a ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte Tester’ to test all the seasonal bevs from the country’s most popular coffee chains, and decide which is actually the best.
Not only will the winning applicant receive 300 big ones for their time, they’ll also get a generous budget to spend on autumnal drinks throughout the season.
The role will require the PSL tester to rate and review all of the coffees giving each one a score on several factors, like sweetness, flavour, cosiness, smell, and added bonuses (such as, if it has cream, sprinkles and other decorative additions).
All you need for the role is an enthusiasm for all things pumpkin spiced and the ability to hop foot it around to a whole bunch of coffee shops.
“Despite the hot summer we have all faced, there are still fall fanatics who cannot wait for their autumn wardrobes to make a return,” said Maria Ryan – Sales and Marketing Director from Pour Moi.
“Because so many of our customers talk about how much they love everything about this cosy season, we wanted to do something that ensures they have the best start to their favourite season, so by hiring a Pumpkin Spice Latte Tester, we can help all fall-lovers tell the gourd from the bad when it comes to the limited-edition seasonal coffees on offer this year.
“It means everybody can relax with a hot drink knowing they will feel autumnal from the first sip.”
