- 2 tbsp dried lavender
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 5 oz strong coffee or espresso
- 3-4 ounces milk
First, create simple syrup by heating 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir until fully dissolved. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Next, place 2 tbsp of dried lavender inside the LEVO herb pod.
Place the herb pod inside the reservoir at the “Place Pod Here” marker, and add the silicone stirrer paddle to the bottom of the reservoir.
Add the simple syrup to the reservoir, making sure to fully submerge the dried lavender inside the herb pod with liquid.
Set the infusion for 2 hours at 175º F and press start. After the cycle is complete, let the infusion cool for a few minutes. When cooled and ready, dispense the liquid into a clean container.
Brew 5oz of strong coffee or espresso and place it in a mug.
Mix the lavender-infused simple syrup into the mug with the coffee.
Stir in the milk and add a bit of froth to the top. (Adjust measurements to taste, more or less sweet, more or less milk).
Sprinkle with dried lavender buds if desired. Enjoy!
