Pumpkin spice season is right around the corner, and I think you’re going to love how easy and budget-friendly it is to make Pumpkin Spice Coffee right at home. All you need are a few ingredients to add these warming spices to your next cup of coffee.

And, in addition to adding the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie to your coffee, the use of these these spices is actually very healthy too! Cinnamon in particular has been studied for its benefits on lowering blood sugar.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Grind two cups of coffee from beans, or measure out two servings of pre-ground coffee.

Step Three

Add water to your coffee maker and insert the filter with the ground coffee and spices. Run your coffee maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve the coffee hot.

Pro Tips

  • If you don’t have a cinnamon stick, you can just leave it out. Feel free to add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to make sure you get the nice cinnamon flavor.
  • Buy a pre-made pumpkin spice blend in bulk and use it whenever you want the warming flavors in a recipe. I like the Frontier Spice Pumpkin Pie Spice blend.
  • Use organic coffee and non-bleached coffee filters to avoid any chemicals.

FAQs

Can I re-use the ground coffee and spices for a second batch?

Yes, but the flavor of the coffee and the spices will not be as strong.

How can I make my own pumpkin spice blend?

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
