I don’t drink coffee, but I love the smell. These little cups are inspired by my Dad, who is the biggest espresso drinker I know.
I was going to name these soaps “Cappuccino Cups”, but my Dad suggested “Artisanal Espresso Soap Cups”. I couldn’t agree more.
Vegan/Vegetarian. All natural ingredients. No added fragrances. Simply coconut and olive oils, lye, water, coffee, cocoa powder, and cinnamon.
Imagine waking up and washing your hands with your own brew of Artisanal Espresso Soap first thing in the morning! How delightful!
Espresso Soap Cups Recipe:
- 25% coconut oil
- 75% olive oil
- water (less 1.5 oz because you will be adding coffee later)
- lye (NaOH)
At trace, add to 3/4 of the batch (if making 1# of soap):
- 1.5 oz extra strength coffee
- 1/2T cocoa powder
- 1/2 T raw honey (optional for Vegans)
Fill molds with coffee mixture, top with the remaining soap mixture.
- use a vegetable peeler to create thin garnishes from other soaps. For this decoration, I used my Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge Soap Bars.
- sprinkle cinnamon
Cure for 4 – 6 weeks. You can either keep them in the mold or unmold them. Your choice. They look deliciously drinkable in these cups though.
I can’t wait to give these as gifts!
