Delicious - and I am by no means a coffee drinker, that's my husband's department! I just make the stuff and enjoy the smell. If I do drink it on a rare occasion it's usually iced. I wanted to try this because it's such a nasty, rainy day and it just sounded so good. Well, it was and just as the submitter states - Why spend money on the seasonal flavored stuff when you can make your own?" I punched up the spices a pit by adding some pumpkin pie spice and made it a little extra special by topping it off with a nice dollup of whipped cream. I dare say Dunkin' Donuts couldn't have done any better! Thanks for a really tasty and really simple recipe Monica!
Because there are many types of coffee makers and prep time for each, I don't suggest using the recipe for drip coffee makers, as most don't pull out the full flavor of the spices, as an infused coffee maker will. As a result I was not satisfied with this method in my coffee maker. I did place the spice inside some cheese cloth and tea infuser and let it sit inside the coffee pot while the coffee brewed. I was not a fan of the flavor but I'm sure experimenting will result in a good outcome
I made this in my small four cup coffeemaker with Starbucks' Cafe Verona coffee. I brew mine like they do in the cafe, two tablespoons per 6 ounces of water. I used fat free half-n-half and a little more than the recipe called for in my coffee and a little brown sugar instead of white. Very good! Even my husband liked it, and he's not big on snooty flavored coffee. Thanks, Monica!
Normally, when I want a "pumpkin spiced coffee" I add a couple of pinches of pumpkin pie spice to my coffee cup, some warm milk (whipped with an aerolatte tool is the best), a little whipped cream, and then I sprinkle some more pumpkin spice on top of the cream. I wanted to try this different method today: However, after brewing, I could barely taste any "pumpkin" flavor in the coffee for the time spent. It mainly tastes like a "lightly spiced coffee." So, if you want that extra pumpkin spice flavor, I would add the pumpkin spice, or add it to the cup in the manner I make it. The recipe also made more like 3 cups of coffee if you needed that extra cup in the morning.
Here's a shortcut to this delicious coffee. Put the spices in the FF half'n'half and store in the frig in an airtight container. Multiply the quantities so you have enough for a pint or whatever you will use. Shake lightly before using to disperse the spices equally. I made it with Splenda instead of sugar and it's great! Thanks for the recipe!
I made this before work this morning and it is delicious and so much cheaper than stopping at a coffee shop! You don't need to add the exact amounts it says, just add to your taste. Whipped cream on top is good too!
I am not usually a coffee drinker, but I do like lattes, mochas, etc. I love everything pumpkin spiced so I tried this recipe. I boiled my water and placed the spice into my coffee filter first and then added the fresh grounds on top without mixing them together. We have a pour over coffee maker, so I wanted to make sure the spices were at the bottom to spice the coffee. I found that overall, it tasted a little on the watery side and the pumpkin spice was quite weak. I would suggest at least doubling the spice in this recipe if you are a pumpkin spice lover like myself. I went on to using this coffee to make a pumpkin spice latte.
This was pretty good. I didn't have any allspice so I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of homemade pumpkin pie spice. Next time I will up the seasoning to two teaspoons.
