As I was brewing a cup of coffee for myself this morning, dreaming of summer and the beautiful lavender bushes that will soon be blooming outside in our yard, the idea came into my head to brew coffee with lavender. I promptly went online to Google and sure enough, there is coffee with lavender out there on the market. You can use fresh blooms or dried buds in this recipe. The question remains: how much lavender? I took a wild guess. Check out this mixture for sweetening the coffee: Vanilla Sugar. Coffee not your cup of tea? Try this instead: Lavender Blue Tea
