Pumpkin spice flavored coffee?
October 8, 2010 12:22am CST
I usually drink plain coffee, either black or with milk and no sugar. I've avoided all these flavored coffees that have become popular but the other day I was in the office and another guy came in with an extra coffee from Dunkin Donuts that was pumpkin spice flavored. They made it for him by mistake and then gave it to him in addition to his regular coffee. I set it aside but later drank it when my coffee was gone. I think I'm partially converted. I've always liked pumpkin pie and the other day when I went into a McDonalds I smelled pumpkin spice flavored coffee. I might actually buy some....unless it costs more than regular.

I'd be more of a fan of hazelnut or chocolate syrup in My Barista blend coffees,but it is about the time for these seasonal special flavourings to return..I've tried Pumpkin Pie as a dessert in the past,but I've yet to try it as a coffee flavouring! I'm Currently living too far away from a Micky D's to be driving there especially just for a coffee..

Two Christmases ago my daughter gave me an espresso maker. Since then I have been hooked on my own style of espresso. I make a killer espresso using a flavored coffee called Pecan Pie, which has the richest aroma that will make you feel like your floating every time you get a whiff of it. I brew that up in my espresso maker and then I add a special ingredient that adds flavor and gives a bit of a base note to the whole thing. My final ingredient is a touch of milk. I think for the most part the whole thing is not all that fattening. I tried doing the cream and chocolate syrup which of course is totally fattening. Finally I tried using honey, and that is what did the trick. Not only does honey sweeten, but the honey itself adds it's own unique subtle flavor that sweetens at the same time. It's heavenly and smells delightful too!
