Fragrant Lavender Coffee

My brother introduced me to this recipe after he took his daughter to a lavender farm near Niagara Falls, where they got to sample all sorts of lavender-infused treats. Adding lavender blossoms to coffee and tea lifts your beverage another octave, totally transforming your drink in a totally yummy way.

Making lavender coffee at home is as easy as making regular coffee, and any sort of coffee maker can be used. I use a French press, or Bodum, as I prefer coffee prepared this way, and my brother makes this drink in a stovetop espresso machine – both taste great!

For 3 cups

  • 3 tablespoons freshly ground coffee
  • 1 sprig of lavender – just flowers, stem removed.
  • Boiled water
  • Soy cream – or any other kind of non-dairy cream

Directions

  1. Grind the beans and add to the French press (or other coffee machine) along with lavender blossoms.
  2. Steep in boiled water for 5 minutes, and it’s ready!

    Voted. Wow, that's unusual! I have had lavender chocolate before and wasn't that keen on it, so I am not sure I would like it in coffee either. Maybe it is a bit of an acquired taste! I would definitely try this out of curiosity though.

      it's similar to lavender chocolate in the richness, so you may not like this one. I had a horrible tea experience today: Black tea - coffee - almond: all steeped together. gross.
