Combine milk & coffee in desired proportions with, pumpkin, spices, and sugar in a saucepan. Gently heat over medium-high heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla or other preferred option (see notes).
Either top with whipped cream, fresh or frozen or whisk the latte until foamy – this is best done in a heavy cup, like a large Pyrex 2 measuring cup. Put the whisk in and holding the handle between palms, move hands back and forth very briskly, twirling the whisk. (Think of a Boy Scout starting a fire with two sticks.) To get any decent foam at all, whisk wildly and for several minutes.
Garnish simply with a little grate of nutmeg, a pinch of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
