Been riding a lavender high lately and thanks to Mark's suggestion tried the Lavender Soy Latte from Bouldin Creek Cafe. Love at first sip! And ever since then I've been trying to recreate it at home with this and this recipe. After a few variations I've quickly realized the delicacy of the lavender flavor. It's really easy to overpower the lavender taste with espresso unless complimented with sugar or vanilla or honey (which I'm totally trying out in the upcoming experiments). I've also read that a little bit of lavender syrup or lavender flavor goes a long way, which I've, too, added to my arsenal of lavender coffee-making must haves. Here's hoping to achieve that right hint of lavender ... eventually!
More on the lavender coffee talk subject, I've been hearing how divine the Lavender Latte from Medina Cafe is in Vancouver. Can not wait to get my lips on it in September!
besos ... jin.
