    With temperatures dropping, we thought we’d pull this classic recipe out from the archives to give your weekends that little extra spark of seasonality.
    For us, there’s nothing quite like a pumpkin spiced latte for warming your soul after a brisk, crisp weekend stroll; add a splash of brandy, and you’ve got something truly special. What’s even better, the pumpkin syrup can be used on everything from cocktails to dessert toppings - and keeps in the fridge for a good couple of weeks.

    The Syrup

    What You'll Need:

    Enough for at least a dozen well-sized lattes

    • 1 small pumpkin
    • 400ml water
    • 200ml maple syrup
    • 250ml agave syrup
    • 6 tsp ground ginger
    • 4 sticks of cinnamon
    • 2 tsp whole cloves
    • 1 tsp nutmeg


    Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F. Skin, seed and dice the small pumpkin, then roast it in a baking tray until slightly golden. Put it hot into a liquidiser with 50ml of the agave syrup and blitz.

    Place all the ingredients along with pumpkin puree into a saucepan and stir while bringing to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for a further 10 minutes. Strain the syrup through a muslin cloth or fine sieve and set aside.

    The Drink

    What you'll need:

    • 1 shot of Organic Espresso
    • 2 tbsp Pumpkin Spiced syrup
    • 2 tbsp of double cream (lightly whipped)
    • Splash of brandy, or coffee liqueur (optional, but definitely recommended)


      Place a shot of Organic CRU Espresso into a glass (and the booze if you're feeling naughty). Then add a good glug of syrup into the coffee. Lightly whip the cream and pile on top then grate over a little nutmeg to garnish. Boom! A delicious and warming seasonal libation.

      Marketing is my thing, and my favourite work out is a french press.
