I wonder if you could add them to tea, much like jasmine tea, or use them to make a simple syrup?

pauljoseph, I'm also so jealous. You always manage to send such beautiful photos.

And coffee flower honey could be the next big culinary ingredient. I think you should bring it to market. Then you could travel here for business and we would get to meet you!

Pauljoseph, How did you grow this? From a raw coffee bean? I'd love to try!

I Just saw in Google how to prepare the jasmine tea""the tea is blended with the Jasmine flowers and stored overnight. The night blooming Jasmine flowers then open and release their fragrance into the tea. It takes over four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavor of the jasmine blossoms; this process may be repeated for as many as six or seven times. The tea absorbs moisture from the fresh Jasmine flowers so it must be re-fired to prevent spoilage.'' Thank you for the idea hardlikearmour
betteirene coffee flower honey also an excellent idea

I love to make sorbet from the blossoms of night blooming jasmine, combined with tamarind. And why not add coffee? Pauljoseph, your photos are as exotic and lovely as your stories and recipes.

boulangere We already tested (several times because my wife is a food consultant and a teacher that's why we got a chance to repeat those recipes ) and wrote around 1000 recipes now we are looking for a good editor to edit because the book has to sell Internationally
