I love the Pumpkin Spice Flavored Coffee that is sold at this time of the year. But, drinking too many of them can really put a hole in my pocket!
So I made my own! When I brew coffee, I added a teaspoon ( or more) of Pumpkin Pie Spice to the coffee grounds! Turned out pretty good. Not quite the same, but close enough. And there was a whole pot of brewed pumpkin spice coffee for nearly next to nothing. I already had the spice in my cabinet, and was going to brew coffee anyway.
Your taste may require more spice than I did. Enjoy.

Thanks for posting your suggestion. Now I won't have to mail order the small bottles for flavoring coffee.
Did you add a tsp. to an 8 cup pot? I just wanted some idea of the amount. Please advise.
I like this idea. My granddaughter is always trying new coffee and likes this one. As you said it will save on her pocket book.
I've also added 5 Spice, or just Cinnamon. Harmony Bay Coffee adds spices [listed on top of container] but is rather costly. I add a heaping 1/4 teaspoon to 4 cup carafe.
I like to shake a generous amount of cinnamon and shake a small amount of cloves in my grounds-lovely especially for the winter. Try using molasses instead of honey or sugar to sweeten your morning brew. I have also toasted pecans, ground them and add to the grounds.
I should have been more specific. I put 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice for each cup of coffee that I planned to brew.
This is a great idea. I can see where you could add cocoa powder to the grounds too. Or maybe a drop of rasberry flavoring along with the cocoa and you would have chocolate, raspberry coffee.
