The day has come, my fellow coffee fanatics. The cooling days of late August, the hint of Autumn in the early days of September, these things tell me of the return of one of my favorite seasonal coffee flavors. Pumpkin spice coffees are top on my list, and I look forward to their return every Fall. Nothing is better as the length of the day wanes. Nothing signifies the coming of cool weather comfort food and its flavors to a coffee drinker like me than the cinnamon and nutmeg taste of seasonal pumpkin pie spice flavored coffees.
The options are many, and I thought it would be a good idea to catalogue our offerings in a single post. So many people love this delightful pairing of flavors that many coffee roasters offer a traditional pumpkin pie flavored coffee. Every Thanksgiving, I look forward to that pairing of flavors. After a satisfying feast, with a belly full of family favorites, a cup of coffee and a slice of pumpkin pie is the ultimate finish to the meal. At this time of year, we can enjoy that fantastic flavor pairing over breakfast.
Pumpkin Spice K-Cups, Coffee Pods and More
The big excitement around the CoffeeForLess offices is the return of Green Mountain Coffee Pumpkin Spice K-Cups. These never last around here. The balance of complex spices and perfectly roasted coffee makes these one of the best pumpkin spice flavored coffees on the market. I personally think it’s amazing with just a splash of vanilla creamer.
If you are more of a coffee pod person, try the Melitta One:One Pumpkin Spice Coffee Pods. These flavored coffee pods are smooth and balanced with a spice level that is not overwhelming.
A few brands of pumpkin pie spice flavored coffee beans are also available. These are perfect if you are more of a grind-your-own coffee drinker. Try New York Coffee’s Pumpkin Pie Flavored Coffee Beans or get them ground. It’s an excellent flavored coffee with pumpkin flavor enhanced with sweet cinnamon and spicy nutmeg. Barrie House Pumpkin Pie coffee beans are excellent as well.
Try the many kinds and compare. We would love to hear your opinions on or recipes with the various seasonal pumpkin pie flavored coffees.
