The Easiest Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Ever

October 3, 2011

I’m not a crazy coffee drinker.   I usually go in spurts  and alternate with tea when it’s cold outside.  So the past couple of weeks that it’s been cooling off have driven me to seek out my favorite coffee: Pumpkin Spice. I posted about it a bit ago and a friend replied asking me for my recipe. I was confused. Recipe? I just go to the closest convenience store for a cup once or twice a week until they stop having it in the store or buy a bag of Green Mountain when I can find it in the store.  She replied to my email saying that she had seen some recipes around and figured I had used one and it made me google.  I had to laugh at the results.

The Easiest Pumpkin Spice Coffee Ever:

1. Prep a pot of coffee like you normally would.

2. Before you turn it on to start to brew, add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. (I used 1 Teaspoon for a full pot, so do the math and use 1/2 for a smaller pot, etc.)

3. Brew like normal.

4. Let the deliciousness amaze you!

Really. That easy. And I just so happen to have made a trip to trader Joe’s yesterday and got their Pumpkin Pie Spice that’s amazing.  If you want to make your own, Pupkin Pie Spice usually includes a mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg usually with cloves, sometimes ginger or all-spice. The TJ’s version has lemon peel and cardamom in it and it’s incredible.

This is my new favorite for sure.  Now, I’m off to avoid laundry and make some Autumn Spiced Scones to go with my millionth cup of coffee today…

One more thing while we’re talking seasonal food and beverage: If I follow you on Pinterest? Can you pretty-please-with-a-cherry-on-top promise not post one.single.more.recipe for any variation of pumpkin/maple/apple spice doughnuts?? Please?? I can’t take it! If I see one more, I’m fairly certain I won’t be able to resist the temptation…

    I use a French Press. Do you think it would still work? (Fingers Crossed…please say yes!)
