Pumpkin Spice Coffee
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee starts as 100% Brazil Cerrado Arabica beans. They're roasted to a medium-dark, Vienna-style roast and then spiked with actual spices, not artificial flavorings. We use things like orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla beans, and pumpkin spice oil. The beans and the spices are ground together, so the flavors have time to merge, mingle and marry. It's like having a very low calorie slice of pumpkin pie. In a cup. That you drink. You could even put whipped cream on it, if that made you happy (though the calorie count would definitely change). It's smooth, easy-drinking and, for the fourth year running, the official beverage of Pumpkin Season here at Trader Joe’'.
Here's a little history. We first introduced Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Coffee in 2011, and it has returned each year since for Pumpkin Season. Each year, we've significantly increased the amount we've brought into our stores. And each year, we've been blown away by the response, running out before Pumpkin Season had run its course. This year, we're hoping to have enough to get us through the season, but if history is any guide, well, let's just say we can't guarantee how long it will be on our shelves. We can guarantee a great price - we're selling each 14 ounce can of ground Pumpkin Spice Coffee for $7.99, while it lasts.
