- Creamy Goodness: Pour in the half-and-half (or milk) to your pumpkin mix. Give it a good stir. This step adds that creamy, dreamy texture.
- Pumpkin Meet Coffee: Now, it’s time for the magic moment. Pour your freshly brewed coffee into the pumpkin mixture. Stir it all together until it’s smooth and luscious.
- Optional Whipped Cream: If you’re feeling extra fancy (and who wouldn’t?), top your pumpkin spice coffee with a big dollop of whipped cream. Don’t be shy; pile it on!
