Although this week's weather might not agree, summer--at last!--is coming to an end. Soon we'll be busting out our fall line from the back of the closet, putting extra blankets on the bed, and paying PG&E more money. More importantly, Starbucks will roll out their annual treat of legend and lore, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Blue Bottle's got nothing on Starbucks until they introduce a sickly sweet treat like this.) But at almost $4 a pop, who can afford Starbucks version of black tar? Not us.

Enter Apartment Therapy's Kathryn Hill who has come up with a DIY version of Pumpkin Spice Latte that tastes almost like its mass-produced cousin. Only better.
