"the beginning of a beginning"

* Happy birthday to the late, great H.G. Wells, one of the fathers of modern science fiction, author of such classics as The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and my favorite, The Time Machine.

In his honor, a quote from The Discovery of the Future:

The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is or has been is but the twilight of the dawn.

And from his The Salvaging of Civilization :

A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own.

request for recommendations: pumpkin spice coffee

One of my favorite things about Fall is pumpkin... well, pumpkin everything. I love the sight of pumpkins, the smell, and especially the taste. I eat pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin seeds, etc.

When I'm out on the town, I enjoy Starbucks' pumpkin spice lattes. But I also enjoy making pumpkin spice coffee when I'm at home. At the moment, I'm using Gevalia's pumpkin spice decaf coffee blend. It's good, definitely spicey, but it's rather low on the pumpkin taste itself. This brings me to my question:

Can anyone recommend a good pumpkin-flavored coffee for home brewing? (Thanks in advance!)
