Mini pumpkin pies with Zepresso Coffee

As soon as fall settles in we start craving anything that has pumpkin or cinnamon in it. Our aromatic mini pumpkin pies hit the spot and pair perfectly with your morning Ze-presso coffee.

We decorated ours in the spirit of Halloween, but feel free to be creative.

The new Ze-presso Trend espresso machine takes your morning coffee ritual to the next level. Simply put in one our Italian blend capsules, choose what type of coffee you would like and push start!

In our next fall-inspired recipe we’ll show to make delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte’s using the Ze-presso Trend, so stay tuned!
