It not only gives your coffee that special holiday taste in aroma, it is incredibly easy to make. It’s just one more small step in the coffee brewing process.

What is Pumpkin Spice?

Well it is not pumpkin. It is the spice that turns that orange bland squash into tasty and wonderful smelling things we identify with the holiday season. The spice, which is the combination of several spices has been around for more than 200 years. What would pumpkin pie taste like without it? It is incredibly easy to make and you probably already have the five spices in your cabinet to put it together.

Pumpkin Spice Mix

  • 3 Tablespoons (tbs) cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons (tps) nutmeg
  • 2 Teaspoons (tps) ginger
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons (tps) cloves
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons (tps) allspice

If you like to weigh things out here, try this:

  • 18 Parts cinnamon
  • 4 Parts nutmeg
  • 4 Parts ginger
  • 3 Parts cloves
  • 3 Parts allspice

This should give you enough spice mix for several cups of coffee. We suggest starting with 1 teaspoon of spice mix to 20 grams of ground coffee, then adjust to your taste preference. Just mix it into the grounds before you start brewing and let the brew system take care of the rest.

Of course the most important ingredient in this is to start with a great coffee. Each of our USDA certified organic coffees are roasted to perfection. Adding the Pumpkin Spice mix to the coffee only enhances the flavor and aroma. All ingredients are natural unlike you might find at your local coffee shop. Give it a try let us know what you think.
