I love my scrubby coffee oatmeal soap so much that I am making it again, not just once, but twice, using different techniques that are new to me. I used exactly the same recipe, except for the espresso coffee grounds that I reduced to 15 grams from 20. I find that the finer espresso grind is better suited to use in soaps than the coarser french press grind that I used for my coffee kitchen hand soap.
For the first batch, I used the tiger stripe technique. I had less coffee than oatmeal batter, so the stripes did not reach all the way to the top. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to see the stripes!
For the second batch, I was inspired by Bonnie Bath Blog’s tutorial and Sunday Spotlight on the spoon swirl. My result does not show swirls, more like spots or dollops, but I had fun doing it (actually, it does not matter what I’m making, I always have fun when making soap :-) ) and would definitely try it again.
These soaps smell very similar to my Honey Sunrise, except that these don’t have honey f.o., therefore not as sweet smelling, but oh so good!
