I start with freshly brewed coffee because I know most of us don’t have an espresso machine. These slow cooker pumpkin spice lattes would be fun for after trick-or-treating, or for a fall brunch. Note – I don’t like my coffee overly sweet, so add the sugar to your taste
- 7 cups freshly brewed strong hot coffee – measure the coffee after it is brewed.

- 1-1/2 cups Half and half (or heavy cream)
