Golden marmalade colours, wafts of ginger spice… it must be time for pumpkin spice coffee!
Autumn (a.k.a pumpkin spice season) is upon us. The temperatures dipping, the cable knits are coming out, and our coffee can’t wait for its autumnal makeover!
We’ve squeezed the last rays from the late summer sun; now all we want is pumpkin spiced coffee! Forget the weatherman; this is the flavour that welcomes in autumn. It makes us think of bronze-coloured trees and blustery days, of snuggly socks and seasonal spices… and coffee that’s cosy in every way!
What’s in a pumpkin spice mix?
We go crazy for spiced everything in autumn. From sticky ginger cakes to fragrant cinnamon buns, no one can resist the sweet-scented combo of autumn spices. And a pumpkin spiced coffee? It’s a hug-in-a-mug combo of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and earthy pumpkin puree.
You can buy pumpkin pie spice mix – feel free to use it here if you have some in the cupboard – but a quick combination of ground spices will give you the same warming flavour.
Make Pumpkin Spice Coffee at home
Shop bought pumpkin lattes are often ladened with sugar and artificial flavours. Takeaway cups are also a pain for the planet – we throw away 2.5 billion disposable cups each year. And yes, we know you can buy pumpkin syrups online, but who wants that when you can make a REAL pumpkin spice latte with REAL pumpkin puree? Make your pumpkin spice coffee today!
