When autumn arrives with its charm of changing leaves, cooler temperatures, the first thing we want to taste in the morning is a delicious pumpkin latté. Then we want one more in the afternoon. And of course, a hot pumpkin cinnamon spice latté in the evening, by the fireside.
In our calendar fall is saved for the lord of the gourds, the pumpkin! We heart the orange globule to death. So we use it thoroughly and in the best manner possible to whip up amazing lattes.
If you’ve seen the magical quickness with which baristas whip up this drink you’d think you need a degree in coffee to master this highly coveted beverage of the people. It’s simply not true! You can get the same delicious taste of the café with machine-free coffee pods.
The added advantage: you can make it with pure, natural ingredients with none of the chemicals and preservatives that make up the cafe Pumpkin spice lattes. We tell you how.
At Caffè di Artisan, our liquid luxury single-serve coffee pods feature yummy flavors, covering the wide spectrum of coffees from around the global coffee belt.

Fall into the Pumpkin Patch
There are two ways to procure delicious pumpkin puree. For the adventurous, we suggest packing up a couple of espresso pods and venturing into the local pumpkin farm for some good ol’ fashion pumpkin picking. A fun family event, you can check out the ripest of the orange goblin looking fruits and bring them home.
If you get tired in the process, open up your organic coffee pods and sip for quick energy. Go home and carve out the pumpkins and puree them for use in your lattes.
If you’re in the mood for magic, you can turn your pumpkin into a carriage. But that’s old magic. If you really want to be a thoughtful coffee lover, turn that pumpkin into a giant pumpkin shaped vat filled with an endless amount of pumpkin spice lattes! Imagine the joy!
The other, more earthy and practical option is to purchase pumpkin puree from the local supermarket. Be sure to check the expiry date and fill your closet with enough to get you through the season. Remember, pumpkin tastes great in all the seasons and can be prepped hot or cold!

- Pour the steaming hot milk into the coffee. Give a quick stir.

Notes for homemade Pumpkin Spice:
*To make your pumpkin spice at home, you adventurous gourmand you, stir together 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg powder and 1/4 teaspoon of cloves powder.
If you’d like to simplify life even further, stick with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder - it still tastes pretty darn good.
Now for the only hard 😋 part of the Making It process: the choice of the coffee variant to make the Pumpkin Spice Latté.
You can choose a different one for each cup or each friend. We suggest you try them all. Each has unique tasting notes.
The Ethiopian Asmara from the cradle of coffee, if you enjoy a densely sweet berry flavor.
Intensity : Medium Roast : Medium
The Indian Vilasita for a buttery smooth, spicy, nutty drink with tasting notes of nutmeg, pistachio and cocoa.
Intensity : Medium-strong Roast : Medium Dark
The Colombian Raro with a classic profile with strong caramelly sweetness.
Intensity : Mild Roast : Medium
The Peru Organique (USDA-certified organic) for a sweet herbal flavor with citrusy tones.
Intensity : Medium Roast : Medium
But when you want something really special, here are our recommendations (Remember these are still a fraction of the cost of coffee shop drinks for a much superior and all-natural Pumpkin Spice Latté). Plus, you do deserve the touch of luxury in your life, don't you.
The Nilgiris Organique: Every bit deserving of its 200 plus years heritage. Organic coffee with intensity of a different scale. Flavors will burst upon your palate. Spicy woody overtones. Chocolaty undertones.
Warning: The Nilgiris Organique can be addictive.
Intensity : Strong Roast : Medium Dark
The Malabar: the fabled iconic monsooned Malabar. Unique notes of the sea.
Intensity : Strong Roast : Medium Dark
Not to forget, if you are a decaf drinker or simply prefer it in the evenings, try making a Pumpkin Spice Latté with our Decaf. You will never be able to guess that it's decaffeinated!
Why machine- made coffee isn't The Real Deal
Machine- made coffees simply don't cut it. Their whole process (or tech, as millennials might put it) is all seriously messed up.
Coffee machines force very hot water at high pressure through delicate coffee grounds, which is the reason for the burnt and bitter taste.
This is no way to treat something so vulnerable.
How can such violence, this savagery, yield great coffee?
Truly great coffee, extracted slowly and lovingly, does not taste bitter.
In the Caffè di Artisan micro- filtery flavors are teased out from coffee beans over days...not forced out.

Want to know The Secret to The Best Coffee in The World?
(But first, a bit of coffee history: Coffee was never meant to be made by machines. It started out as a slow process. But an ugly compromise, a dirty shortcut, was invented in order to mass-produce coffee: the coffee machine. The Espresso machine was patented in 1884 - It was the start of the industrialization of coffee.)
