A brief history of the drink

The origin of the Starbucks Coconut milk Pumpkin Macchiato can be dated to around the fall of 2016, after its base beverage, the mocha macchiato, rose to fame. Someone by the name of Charlotte shared the recipe with Starbucks, and then the coffeehouse published it. The pumpkin spice syrup in this Macchiato was introduced at Starbucks in 2003.

Is Coconut milk Pumpkin Macchiato still available at Starbucks?

Yes. This Macchiato is available on the Starbucks app and website, as well as all the Starbucks locations, but only during the fall season. You can only get this Macchiato during fall because the main ingredient is pumpkin spice syrup, a seasonal ingredient at Starbucks, served exclusively when fall starts. All the other ingredients are available all-year round.
