Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Recipe
Skip the expensive pumpkin coffee blends and creamers with questionable ingredients and make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee at home. This easy recipe is so delicious and full of PSL flavor.
Pumpkin spice season is here, and I think you’re going to love how easy and budget-friendly it is to make Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee right at home. All you need are a few ingredients to add these warming spices to your next cup of ground drip 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. See my related recipe for Lemon Cinnamon Water.
Why You Need This Recipe
- This is a budget-friendly way to make pumpkin pie flavored coffee at home.
- Skip the coffee shop drinks filled with sugar and artificial flavors.
- Adapt this recipe to your liking. You can add more or less of the pumpkin spice flavor depending on how much you like the flavor.
Use your favorite organic coffee to make the base of your coffee drink. You’ll need either pre-ground coffee beans or ground coffee that you grind yourself.
Grab some pumpkin spice blend. Most grocery stores sell this spice blend (also called Pumpkin Pie Spice); it’s made from ground cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, and allspice or cloves.
Add a cinnamon stick to add additional flavor.
You won’t believe how easy it is to make this homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee. I almost feel silly calling it a recipe!
Grind two cups of coffee from beans, or measure out two servings of pre-ground coffee.
A serving of coffee is about 1-2 tablespoons of ground coffee to every 6 ounces of water.
Add the ground coffee to your filter, along with the pumpkin spice blend, and cinnamon stick.
See the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact measurements.
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.
Recipe Tips & Substitutions
- 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. I’ve also seen it sold in small containers at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and most grocery stores.
- Use organic coffee and non-bleached coffee filters to avoid any chemicals.

Yes, but the flavor of the coffee and the spices will not be as strong. I recommend using a fresh batch of ground coffee and pumpkin pie spice if you want a 2nd cup.
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.
Yes, but be warned that the French press doesn’t have a paper filter, so the pumpkin pie spice will not be filtered out of the coffee. If you don’t mind a little grit from the spice in your coffee, then you can make this recipe using a French press. Otherwise, make it using a drip maker or pour-over coffee method.
