Lavender Coffee for 1

"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: Recipe #22071. Coffee not your cup of tea? Try this instead: Recipe #151236"

    2 of 3 of us liked this! We used a french press with 4 Tbs coffee, 12 oz of water and one large fresh lavender. Thanks for posting a fun recipe. Made for Culinary Quest 2014, PNW Region.

    There are a lot of mixed reviews on this recipe but I happen to enjoy lavender so had to try it. I'm glad that I did as, for me, it came out lovely. I used the dried lavender, a Tahitian vanilla bean (half of, just the seeds scraped out) and splash of heavy cream with Splenda in a 12 oz mug. My coffee of choice was and is Van Houtte, Mexican, medium roast, organic. :D

    Not good at all. Very medicinal tasting; dumped the whole pot after two sips. I'll stick to lavender desserts thanks.

    Yummy recipe. It makes you feel like you are on vacation! I made it in my french press so I made a whole pot. I don't usually sweeten my coffee but for this I did add a little pinch of sugar as well as some vanilla extract. Really a nice treat. I put half of the pot in the fridge and am going to have it later as iced coffee. I can't wait - I think that the lavender flavor will come out even stronger. Thanks for the recipe!

    Very good. For my Senseo machine, in the CoffeeDuck I used a heaping T ground coffee plus 1/2 T lavender (dried, from Penzey's). Thanks for sharing the recipe!
