Since it was first served by Starbucks in 2003, the infamous pumpkin spice latte has become the season’s most popular beverage. It’s sparked the desire for pumpkin-scented candles, irresistible tea flavors with hints of pumpkin, and obviously — pumpkin-shaped home decor. Nearly two decades later, a variety of coffee brands have their own version of the drink, so which one should consumers spend their money on?

That’s where you come in. 

British clothing brand Pour Moi is looking for latte lovers who want to drink all the pumpkin-flavored drinks and get paid for it. As the official “pumpkin spice latte taste tester,” the role will require the tester to purchase lattes from places like Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Krispy Kreme to rate and review each coffee.

The goal is to guide budget-conscious consumers by finding the brand with the best pumpkin spice latte based on the following criteria: sweetness levels, flavor, coziness, smell, and bonuses like cream, sprinkles, and gingerbread. If you consider yourself a coffee connoisseur and have a passion for pumpkins, this job listing is calling your name.

“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, meaning everybody can relax with a hot drink knowing they will feel autumnal from the first sip,” said Maria Ryan, sales and marketing director at Pour Moi.

For their efforts, the tester will be compensated $350, plus a budget to buy the autumnal drinks. Although the fall doesn’t officially start until Sept. 22, the drink is already back on the menu at Starbucks.

To be qualified for the role, applicants must be at least 18 years old and able to commute to each coffee shop. But more importantly, they should be “enthusiastic about autumn” and have “a penchant for pumpkins,” according to the job description.

Applications close on Sept. 30, and the winners will be selected at random and notified by Oct. 3. You can find the application form on their site, so be prepared to answer the autumn-related question prompt. Happy pumpkin spice latte season!
