Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I can officially say that this 31 Days of Pinterest experiment has changed my pinning habits. Instead of pinning and forgetting, I've been pinning with real intent and acting on more pins.

For example, I pinned this Pumpkin Spice Latte on Pinterest a mere 12 days ago. Two days after pinning it, I purchased the ingredients on my weekly shopping list, and whipped it up the following day.

Progress, people!

This homemade pumpkin spice latte mix is super quick, easy, and inexpensive to make. One batch will keep for at least a week in your fridge, and makes 7 or more lattes. Once you taste it, you'll want to just eat the mix by itself :)... it is seriously that good. Tastes just like pumpkin pie!

My only issue is that I'm not a coffee every day kind of gal. While I love me a good cup of joe, I am a tea drinker first and foremost. A french press is our only coffee making device, and I am horrible at knowing how much coffee and water to put in. Due to my coffee making deficiencies, my latte never turned out right.

I knew that the problem had to be the coffee I was making, because on it's own the mix was so delish! So I took my jar of pumpkin mix over to several friends houses {friends who make good coffee}, and sure enough, this recipe is amazing.

Feel free to laugh at the silly girl who can't make a decent cup of coffee. Then go and make your own batch of pumpkin spice lattes, and enjoy these last few fleeting days of October!

Any french press coffee making tips for me? What's your go-to morning drink?
