Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Are you a pumpkin spice lover? Then let us introduce you to four ways to make the very best pumpkin spice coffee! Whether you like hot coffee or iced, lattes or black, we’ve got a recipe for you. The basic way, we think? Make pumpkin spice syrup and drizzle it into your drip coffee: simple, easy and fun! But if you’re more of a pumpkin spice latte fan, we get it. We’ve got recipes for that, and iced coffee to boot.

How to make pumpkin spice coffee: 4 ways!

There are lots of ways to make pumpkin spice coffee, depending on what you’re looking for. The easiest way is to drizzle a little syrup into your drip coffee. But you can also put pumpkin spices into the grounds, or make a tasty latte! Here are the four basic ways we like to make pumpkin spice coffee:

Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Making pumpkin spice syrup

For the basic pumpkin spice coffee, you’ll need a homemade pumpkin spice syrup. This is a great method because you end up with a jar of syrup that works for lots of drinks! Here’s what you’ll need for the syrup:

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice

Simmer those ingredients for about 2 minutes until they dissolve, then strain them through a fine mesh strainer. Refrigerate this until using: it makes a big batch you can use for about 12 drinks!

Drip coffee methods

If you’re making pumpkin spice coffee or iced coffee, you’ll need a great hot cup of joe. Of course, you can use any type of coffee making method you like: even a electric coffee maker! But here are a few methods we think make a better pot of coffee:

  • Chemex: This is our top method for delicious pour over coffee.
  • French Press: This French Press Coffee is also top quality and makes a great cup.
  • Moka Pot: Moka Pot Coffee is somewhere in between drip coffee and espresso; it’s very strong but works well with pumpkin spices.

Or, make a pumpkin spice latte

Do you love a good pumpkin spice latte? This drink is a different way to enjoy pumpkin spices: it uses espresso, milk, and both pumpkin spices and real pumpkin puree. You can also make an iced pumpkin spice latte, which we like even better! They’re similar to the Starbucks drinks, but made like a classic cafe latte. For these options, go to the following recipes:
