HOW LONG SHOULD I INFUSE LAVENDER IN COFFEE?
When preparing the simple syrup for lavender coffee recipes, bring the water and lavender to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer gently for 3-15 minutes. Continuing to boil the flowers or cooking too long can create a bitter, overly intense flavor. Taste the liquid periodically and continue simmering until you find the level of flavor you’re going for. Before you strain the liquid, it will continue to steep as it cools, imparting more flavor.
Keep in mind that your liquid likely won’t turn purple, but it should be pale gold or amber. The longer it steeps, the deeper the color.
