The arrival of fall means sweater weather, apple-picking, and hayrides—and of course, the return of pumpkin-spice everything. With cozy and warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, pumpkin spice has made itself the quintessential fall flavor, especially when it comes to adding a little something to your coffee.
If you're not up for spending $6 daily on coffee-shop pumpkin spice lattes, you can easily brew your own. From coffee beans to capsules, there are a plethora of options from top brands that will help you get your pumpkin spice fix at home. Here, the best pumpkin spice coffee products on the market.
Starbucks can be credited with starting the pumpkin spice craze, so it's only fitting that the brand has a whole lineup of pumpkin spice products for at-home consumption, the crown jewel being its Pumpkin Spice Flavored Ground Coffee, which is also available in K-Cup pods. The limited-edition seasonal batch features natural pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors blended with 100 percent Arabica coffee for an experience that just tastes like fall. This pick may just be the next best thing to replicating the coffeehouse experience.
Dunkin' has its own delicious blend, too. The smooth, medium blend includes notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Keurig users can choose from various-sized pod packs including a 22-, 60- or 88-count of the seasonal coffee, and for traditional coffee drinkers, there's also a ground coffee option.
For those who like their pumpkin flavor strong and their coffee even stronger, look no further than Death Wish Coffee's pumpkin spice offering. The organic dark roast contains a homemade aged chai spice blend of cardamom, cinnamon, and black peppercorn, as well as ginger and pumpkin essential oils that are simmered for 12 hours before being mixed with unroasted coffee beans for 10 to 12 days. The company claims to have the world's strongest coffee, so prepare yourself for a flavorful and bold brew—and double the caffeine of your normal cup of joe. Choose from grounds or whole beans.
Green Mountain Coffee's Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice K-Cup Pods are ideal for Keurig users who are seeking just one cup of perfectly spiced coffee at a time. Though the product is artificially flavored, reviewers rave that the light roast capsules contain just the right amount of creamy pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Cold-brew enthusiasts will love La Colombe's specialty draft latte, containing cold-pressed coffee, frothed low-fat milk, and real pumpkin puree. It only has 100 calories and just 4 grams of added sugar. The flavor is mostly coffee (one can equals about one and a half cups) with a hint of pumpkin, making it the perfect drink for someone who finds the average PSL a bit too sugary. Better yet, if you live near a La Colombe, you can find this specialty brew on its nitro draft.
If you're looking for a vegan option, Califia Farm's Pumpkin Spice Latte uses direct trade cold brew coffee, real pumpkin puree and spices, and almond milk. It has fewer calories and sugar for a light, dairy-free, and soy-free take on a usually indulgent treat. The cold brew process also offers more antioxidants and less acidity than hot-brewed coffee. Reviewers love its smooth, creamy taste with just the right amount of sweetness.
Jordan's Skinny Mixes syrups are sugar-free, calorie-free, carb-free, and gluten-free, but they somehow still taste like magic. Though especially great for coffee and lattes, this syrup will give anything a pumpkin flavor with just a splash. Another no-fail idea: Add it to whipped cream to top off your beverage.
The flavor profile includes hints of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, and while the sugar-free syrup doesn't completely replicate a pumpkin spice latte, reviewers praise its taste for not being too overwhelmingly sweet. Plus, there are other pumpkin-flavored varieties to try, like Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll, Pumpkin Praline Pie, and Pumpkin Cheesecake—yum.
A splash of Coffee Mate's Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer and your ordinary cup of coffee is transformed into a sweet and creamy pumpkin spice-flavored beverage. It's like pumpkin pie in a cup, and so many reviewers wish this limited-edition flavor was available all year round. Use with a milk frother to make it more latte-like. It's available in 16- and 32-ounce sizes and is also dairy- and cholesterol-free.
Enhance your morning coffee with this organic blend of cinnamon, ginger, and clove spices as a quick and easy extra step in your routine. The Simply Organic Pre-Brew allows you to enjoy the pumpkin spice experience without the use of syrups or artificial flavorings, leaving no room for any naysayer to complain of a chemical taste. Another perk is that a little bit goes a long way, and the spices have a longer shelf life than an opened bag of ground coffee. To use, add a small amount to fresh ground coffee (or espresso) before brewing, then brew and enjoy an aromatic experience. Users also say it works for cold-brew coffee as well.
