PREPARING YOUR PUMPKIN CREAM
1. Spoon out the pumpkin puree and pour the heavy whipping cream into a blender and mix until smooth.
TIP: If you don’t have a blender you can easily mix your two ingredients by hand using a wire whisk.
2. Once the cream and pumpkin are fully mixed, pour into an airtight container (mason jars work wonders) and refrigerate until needed.
PREPARING YOUR PUMPKIN SPICE COFFEE
3. In a coffee grinder, combine the coffee beans and spices and pulse until finely ground.
4. Transfer the coffee and spice mixture to your coffeemaker (we use a french press) and brew for 1o minutes or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
5. Divide a desired amount of pumpkin cream among 1-4 mugs, then fill with freshly brewed coffee, stir to combine.
6. Top each cup with a light dusting of ground cinnamon and garnish with a cinnamon stick or two! Serve immediately and enjoy.
