It's the moment that all pumpkin spice fans have been waiting for: Starbucks has officially relaunched its famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.

For the 13th year, the affectionately dubbed PSL has entered stores just ahead of the fall season. This year, however, it's joined by a new, spicy concoction: the Chile Mocha.

"When we think about fall, often people think about warmth and spice, like cinnamon and apple pie," Michelle Sundquist, Starbucks' senior product developer, said in a statement. "We decided to take that idea in a new direction with chocolate and a bit of heat."

The Chile Mocha is made with espresso, steamed milk, cocoa and cinnamon, and is topped with whipped cream. Just like the Pumpkin Spice Latte, this new treat can be enjoyed hot or as a Frappuccino. The company is also offering a hot chocolate version of the Chile Mocha.

Coffee lovers can get their hands on the Pumpkin Spice Latte starting Thursday, but will have to wait until Tuesday to try the Chile Mocha.

Dunkin' Donuts started selling its take on pumpkin beverages Aug. 29. McDonald's reintroduced its version on Aug. 31, following a three-year break.
