The Very Best Pumpkin Spice Latte is...

I’ll fill in the blank from the get go.

Friends, the very best Pumpkin Spice Latte is at Woods Coffee!

If you haven’t heard of Woods, I suspect it’s because you haven’t ventured far enough north. Located primarily in Skagit and Whatcom counties, Woods Coffee has developed the magic of fall with their pumpkin perfection and other fall treats. Good news is Woods Coffee just opened its most southern drive-thru location in Bellevue and if you’re north of the border, you’ll find a Woods Coffee in British Columbia.

So, make it a Spruce, make it a Cedar, make it a Redwood, or make it a Giant Redwood (that’s Woods speak for small, medium, large, and x-large), whatever you do, get yourself to Woods Coffee and partake in the sublime sips of the season.

All year long I wait for my beloved PSL and this year, I took a step of faith and branched out from Starbucks. I'm so happy I did because the flavor profile of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Woods Coffee is divine, definitely something extra special! And, it’s not just the Pumpkin Spice Latte that is noteworthy. The Maple Nut Macchiato is delicious too. Of course, Woods didn’t stop at autumnal drinks, they have an assortment of pastry pairings as well, especially for fall you’ll find gluten-free Pumpkin Scones, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaves, and Coffee Cake Muffins. Yum!

Woods Coffee has been around since 2002. That’s when the Herman family opened the first Woods Coffee in Lynden, Washington. Shortly after the first, a second location opened and growth has beens steady ever since. Cross your fingers, perhaps a Woods Coffee will be arriving near you soon!

I love the cozy feel of each shop - it’s like a walking into a forest sanctuary. With fires burning and the smell of robust coffee, all is well at Woods Coffee. Whether you’re stopping in to work, meet friends, or grab a coffee on the go, their mission to serve others, make a difference, and have fun is apparent. Woods also actively contributes to the communities they are part of with a goal “to make the communities [they] call home thrive”.

Whether you make it to Woods this fall for a Pumpkin Spice Latte or hold off to see what the New Year brings, definitely add this coffee shop to your Pacific Northwest rounds. I’ve yet to visit all the Woods locations, but I highly recommend the Boulevard Park location right on Bellingham Bay (it’s gorgeous!) and soon I want to visit the Roastery to see it in action. What Woods Coffee will you visit next?
