Coffee Butter Cold Process Soap

I love the smell of coffee. I will go read at the local coffee shops just so I can be immersed in the odor. I love using our coffee butter on my skin for that reason. I smell like a coffee shop. πŸ˜‰ Now, I have had a few requests to make a soap with our coffee butter to see if the scent will survive the saponification process. I must admit, my curiosity was caught. Would that delicious odor stay in the soap or would it disappear like the odor of the Virgin Coconut Oil. Let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best. Come join me in the test kitchen for this experiment.When I unveiled this soap in preparation to cut it, I was rather surprised at how light in color it was. When I think of coffee, I think of something dark in color. This soap was not. I picked up the soap and smelled it. It does smell like coffee! While it is not potent like a coffee shop, it does smell like coffee and perhaps a hint of milk. Yummy! I would like to make this soap again, but next time using coffee as my liquid. Won’t that be fun?

Weigh all of the oils into a microwave safe container. While those are heating, weigh the water and lye and stir together. Allow the solution to cool. Pour the lye solution into the liquid oils. Using the immersion blender, mix until a light trace is reached. Pour the soap into a mold. Allow to sit for 24 hours before cutting. Cut the soap and allow to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy!
