Er, actually, it isn't great.  Now that I'm a more experienced soaper, I'm kind of considering tossing this early batch.  It's pretty, but not super fragrant (smells faintly of cocoa and old coffee).  The big mistake was putting coffee beans in the bottom layer--they fall out and into the shower!  It's sort of weird.  But it was a neat experiment... and I just got some HEAVENLY coffee FO, so my coffee soap days are not over yet!

But thanks for the complimentary words anyway.  You're a sweetie!

Okay- Your soap is BEAUTIFUL- even if you feel it was a flop in the scent and functionality areas.
I Love the idea of the coffee mug/tea mug with  tea/coffee ingredients- Brilliant !
 But here's a Question- how well does the soap 'pop' out of the mug for the recipient to use ?

It comes out of the cup pretty easily for the customer... but is a pain in the butt for the soaper.  Grin  I greased the heck out of the mugs, and still had to wiggle/shimmy/cut the soap out with a butter knife (and trim away the ugly).  But then they shrink a bit during the cure, so slide out pretty easily when you're ready to use 'em.

AH ! I see - I was thinking you filled the mug with raw-soap and let it cure for a while or Oven Processed it in the individual mugs. But I guess if you did it that way it wouldn't come out very easily after all.

Oh, but I did I pour raw soap into them!  Then let 'em harden, cut them out & let them cure outside of the mugs.  It was really and truly a pain in the A to get the soap out... but I was young and foolish, and they made cute gifts.
