Pumpkin Spice - October Flavored Coffee

Pumpkin Spice

Every Fall the nation stands still in anxious anticipation of two words: PUMPKIN SPICE. Just the thought brings images of golden leaves and bustling lines of holiday shoppers warmed by thick coats and fuzzy hats, eagerly awaiting a sip of their favorite autumnal beverage. Pumpkin spice flavored coffee is a beloved seasonal favorite that ushers in the cozy and nostalgic vibes of fall. So, how did we get here?

We have been making pumpkin pies since the 17th century. The humble gourd is native to Central America and was popularized by French cookbooks and the association with Thanksgiving. Although Starbucks is the first name we associate with pumpkin spice, there is indeed a much older, rich heritage with coffee and spice. As early as the 15th century, coffee traders from Yemen and Mokha shipped coffee by sea along with all the popular spices we would later see populating our modern pumpkin spice seasonings. These now classic autumnal spices are cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, mace, clove and sometimes allspice.

At Dilworth Coffee, we know that coffee is more than just a warm way to start the day. It has the ability to invoke nostalgia and comfort. The blend of warming spices and the cold outdoors are rooted in American minds. We eagerly wait for the air to chill and leaves to change. It reminds us of families breaking bread around a table. Lights dim and candles lit. Smells of roasting birds and sweet spices in the air. Muddy shoes tramping from the snow outside. A crackling fireplace surrounded by everyone sipping on a steaming cup of coffee. Warm and spicy, sweet, and nutty, Pumpkin Spice is always a favorite. So, grab your bag of Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee and sip to the season of pumpkin.
