Simple to make Melt and Pour Coffee Soap. The perfect soap for gardeners, chefs or anyone wanting a natural exfoliating soap.

Easy Melt and Pour Coffee Ground Soap Recipe


  • 1.5 lbs Organic Goat’s Milk Soap Base
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh ground coffee
  • 1 Teaspoon of Almond Oil
  • 1 – 1.5 Teaspoons of Fragrance optional (scents you many want to consider – vanilla, coffee cake or cinnamon)


  1. Get your double boiler ready
  2. (I recommend you use a bowl or pan you’re going to use for food, this should be soap dedicated only)
  3. Put your molds on a cookie sheet (cover with wax paper or the like, to protect from spills)
  4. Cut your soap base into chunks
  5. Gently melt the chunks in your double boiler on low to low medium – you don’t want to scald your base
  6. Remove from heat and quickly mix in your coffee, almond oil and fragrance into the melted base (but be careful, it’s hot!)
  7. Pour into molds, just short of the top
  8. Spray, generously, with the rubbing alcohol to prevent air bubbles
  9. Allow bars to harden for a few hours – you can put them in the refrigerator for an hour to speed this up.
  10. Be sure to carefully test the soap before trying to remove them.
  11. Once the bars or loaf is completely hardened pop them out and store in air-tight containers.
  12. They are ready to use immediately, no curing time needed.
  13. Package them up for gifts in brown wrapping and twine for a rustic feel, if you like.
