Cooking Steps

Brew your coffee or espresso first however you like.
In a sauce pan over medium heat, add coconut milk, pureed pumpkin, until your coconut milk is bubbling and steaming.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Pour into the bottom half of a coffee cup, then pour in your strong coffee or espresso on top of it and sweeten to taste.
