DIY: How to Make Coffee Soap
“Incorporating coffee into cold process soap is easier than you might think. The distilled water in cold process recipes can be swapped for plain coffee. The key is using distilled water to brew the coffee, and allowing the coffee to cool to room temperature before adding sodium hydroxide lye. Using coffee instead of water makes the soap batter quite dark, so keep that in mind when choosing the color palette. If you’re using plain brewed coffee, don’t worry about the soap overheating. Black coffee does not contain sugar.”
I love coffee, all kinds of coffee. So it’s only natural that I would also be drawn to making my own coffee soap. The process actually looks easier than I had assumed, and I think once you get the hang of it and get in your groove, it should go quickly.
