Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice coffee

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Maybe it’s because I don’t like coffee that much, or maybe it’s because my taste buds are overloaded with pumpkin, but I wasn’t particularly thrilled with this coffee. Sonia liked it and says that this is the first Trader Joes pumpkin item of this season. Does have an adequate amount of pumpkindiculous flavor. 


The opposite is true. I was happy with the pumpkinicity levels of our previous selections, but not with this one. Recently, we tried a Krispy Kreme pumpkin coffee beverage that was really sweet and really punkinny. It was a huge hit with all the family. It tasted like candy. This coffee…It is possible to do so.…tastes like coffee.

It reminded me a little of the Gingerbread Coffee we tried one chilly Yuletide long ago. Both are good but need some sugar and milk. Although there is a hint pumpkin spice, other than that I taste regular coffee with a bitter earthiness and a little acidity.

But I’m no coffee connoisseur. I’m slowly earning my stripes as a pumpkin-flavored-thing expert, but I’m not sure how that will help me in life outside of this blog.

Sonia and me have taken too much pumpkin-related fun a few weeks into the fall season. I wish there were more fall-themed products that didn’t involve pumpkin. There are always harvest apple type dealies. Some of these deals are harvest apple-type. sausages are associated with autumn. We might look for more of that stuff on our next Trader Joe’s trip. We have a few more pumpkinlicious product reviews in the pipeline for those who want more. Sonia apparently isn’t ready to quit her pumpkin addiction. Even as I compose this post—I kid you not—she just sent me an email with the subject line: “Made with Real Pumpkins!!” Apparently Yogurtland is jumping on board the pumpkin bandwagon.

Sonia gives it 4.5 out 5 stars. She likes how the pumpkin spices and medium roast flavors blend together. I rate it 2.5 out 5 stars.

Final verdict: 7 stars out of 10.
