Pumpkin Chai Coffee Ingredients: Cinnamon
By Shannon Sweeney — / Coffee Talk
What makes our pumpkin coffee taste like fall?
Let's face it—without cinnamon, there's no fall. Without fall, there is no life. Cinnamon is the spice of life for pumpkin pie, snickerdoodles, warm cinnamon apples, apple cider and more. Is your mouth watering as much as mine is?).
Fresh cinnamon is also a major ingredient in our Pumpkin Chai Coffee. Here at HQ, we've been busy brewing up our pumpkin coffee—made with completely fresh ingredients inspired by our homemade chai recipe. Other pumpkin coffees, step aside—unlike you, there are no artificial ingredients in our cauldrons.
We take spices from around the world such as cardamom, cinnamon and ginger and simmer them for about 12 hours. Then, we mix the batch of chai with unroasted coffee beans and let them age for 10 to 12 days. Once the beans are dry enough to roast, we finish off the potion with our signature Death Wish Coffee roasting process.
To celebrate each unique, fresh ingredient we toss in our cauldron, we wanted to explore the health benefits of each and how it's used in foods around the world. Let's talk about cinnamon.
What're the health benefits of cinnamon?
Cinnamon has been praised for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. It's made from the inner bark of trees scientifically known as Cinnamomum, and has been used as an ingredient dating back to Ancient Egypt.

- Rich in antioxidants
