Summer is now over and what are we doing? Oh yeah, that's right - roasting Pumpkin Spice Flavored Coffee. There's a flurry of activity in our flavor room for this fan favorite. We sell more Pumpkin Spice this time of year than we do our top flavored coffee in an entire year. Wowsers!
Every fall I wonder if this is the year people will tire of pumpkin spice. We find it everywhere nowadays – tea, gum, yogurt, pasta, bagels…even vodka! Yet here we are at the beginning of another season with tons of orders for our Pumpkin Spice.
What is our obsession with Pumpkin Spice? Well for one, the smell and taste of pumpkin gives us a feeling that associates us with home. It brings us comfort and makes us feel nostalgic. The spicy aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon reminds us of those delicious baked goods mom makes this time of year.
The fall is a time when everything is changing – leaves are falling, there's a chill in the air, and the days are shorter. I think we're all just looking for that warm feeling of comfort which we find in Pumpkin Spice.
So, enjoy a Pumpkin Spice coffee, latté or any of the other Pumpkin Spice creation and get your seasonal fix while you can.
