Ben Napier's Starbucks Order Is So Good

The Home Town co-host and master builder took a break to enjoy a hot bev while in New York City. HGTV got his go-to seasonal order. (Spoiler: It's definitely worth trying.)

UPDATE: AUGUST 24, 2023

We have breaking news: Ben Napier has indeed switched — excuse us, *upgraded* his seasonal Starbucks order. In honor of the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte's annual release, Ben took to Instagram to let his fans know he's recently become hooked on an ever-popular, non-dairy alternative for his lattes: oat milk. Perhaps it has something to do with his recent health journey. Either way, we're happy for him.

HGTV stars, they're just like us, right? Maybe when it comes to coffee.

During a recent press trip to New York City, Ben Napier needed an afternoon pick-me-up. With Starbucks just a few feet away, it was a no brainer. Ben approached the kiosk and without hesitation ordered (arguably) the most popular seasonal drink the Seattle-based coffee chain offers: a Pumpkin Spice Latte (a.k.a PSL) — with a twist.

Let's go over his formula, shall we?

  • The drink: Ben ordered Starbuck's classic Pumpkin Spice Latte, an excellent choice if you're looking for a sugary, warm drink to evoke that familiar, fuzzy "I-can't-wait-for-fall" feeling.
  • The size: If you're going in on a Starbucks drink, you might as well level-up to a grande. No talls allowed! Ben basically said so.
  • The milk: Ben made a decidely constroversial move when he chose regular milk over today's ever-popular nut-based, dairy-free alternatives — but we get it: There's nothing quite like a latte made with fresh, whole milk.
  • The twist: An extra shot of espresso at three in the afternoon? We're almost certain Ben needed a jolt of energy after a long day of press interviews — hence, the extra caffeine.

One PSL ... Ben's version, please!
