Pumpkin spice is back and even the CIA has noticed.

Yes, that CIA.

The spy agency posted a tweet on Thursday that showed a seasonal coffee toast between a Starbucks cup and a Dunkin cup, each with marks indicating a pumpkiny brew inside:

We know it's not fall yet… but we're in the business of anticipating things before they happen. #PSL@Starbucks @dunkindonuts pic.twitter.com/Lu8IUqwGwF

Both companies have locations at CIA headquarters in Virginia.

Is this just an innocent celebration of seasonal coffees? Or is there a hidden message on those mugs? Some Twitter users played along. Some cracked jokes. And others used the tweet as a chance to serve some extra-hot spice right back at the agency:

Message received. Meet at @dunkindonuts on Blue Nail road. Order Pumpkin Spiced drink and wait for contact…..
