CoffeeSoapInMold

Coffee soap, in the mold.  I was pretty proud of this soap; it was made with double-brewed coffee instead of water, with coffee grounds mixed in the soap batter, and whole coffee beans embedded on the top.  It had almost no scent, though, when it finished, which is kind of okay.  The beans on top made it tricky to cut; after a few misfires trying to cut from the top (the blade would catch a bean and push it all the way through the soap, leaving a gouge through the bar), I ended up flipping the loaf over and cutting from the bottom.  I still had a lot of beans fall off as I cut and after, leading to several packages probably sounding like maracas when they arrived at their destination.  :-D

Coffee soap is said to be good for removing garlic and onion odors from hands.  I actually haven't tried that, and the entire batch sold within a week (I think, it sure seemed fast).  I need to make more; it's on the list for when I get more mango butter.
