The Return of Pumpkin Chai Coffee
By Megan Dority — / Coffee Talk
Finally, the great pumpkin coffee Linus was really waiting for. The world’s best and strongest pumpkin coffee is back—and is available in whole bean, ground and Death Cups (for the first time ever). Not to mention, it’s also USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified.
How We Make Our Pumpkin Chai Coffee
This wicked roast was created by mixing and aging a batch of homemade chai with 100% arabica beans for 10 to 12 days. Double, double toil and trouble. Death Wish Pumpkin Chai Coffee takes pumpkin flavor to the next level. So strong, seasonal and spiced up—if you thought pumpkin spice was basic, then you've never had ours.
We knew going into this that there is a stigma associated with pumpkin spice coffee, and for a good reason. Since most companies use artificial pumpkin flavoring for their pumpkin coffee, we decided to do something different with this seasonal blend.
Our inspiration for the pumpkin coffee was our homemade chai, a staple in the coffee shop that Death Wish Coffee was created in. Many request a Death Chai, or a typical "dirty chai,” using a shot of Death Wish Coffee for espresso.
Since many of the chai spices are similar to pumpkin spice, the opportunity to make such a unique pumpkin coffee couldn't be passed up. We take spices from around the world such as cardamom, cinnamon and ginger, and then simmer them for about 12 hours.
For the Pumpkin Chai Coffee, we then mix the batch of chai with the unroasted green coffee beans and let them age for 10 to 12 days. This gives the beans a chance to absorb and inherit the flavors from the spices. Once the beans are dry enough to roast, we finish it off with our signature Death Wish Coffee roasting process.
There's nothing artificial about our coffee—just real, fresh ingredients that give it a true autumnal taste—without the chemicals you can’t pronounce.
- Black Peppercorn
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Earl Grey Tea
USDA Organic + Fair Trade
Just powerful, real coffee—no BS. We source only high-quality Fair Trade Certified and organic coffee beans. When you buy Fair Trade, you’re supporting the livelihood of coffee farms and taking a stand for equality and sustainability.
Not Just for Sweater Weather
If you like PSLs (pumpkin spice lattes), you’ll want to make these beans your main hang. We pair our beans with a magical chai-inspired blend of cinnamon, cloves and pumpkin extract, and then roast them to perfection.
The end result? A Pumpkin Chai Coffee that’s not just for sweater weather. Shop Pumpkin today!
