I have had chocolate mint growing in the garden for a while now and not really given it a second thought until today. Whilst contemplating the pot I had so assiduously watered for the past 3 years I wondered how it would go in a chocolaty soft sort of coffee. Grabbed 3 or 4 leaves..Inside I crushed them up a bit, poured my double shot onto them, then added water (about 200ml) for the strong Americano with a splash double cream (I now have cream instead of milk for weight control). I let it steep for a few minutes, removed the leaves and then added the cream.

Surprisingly good, I think I have finally found a use for this leaf and I am looking forward to trying it with other coffees.

I think I got my plant from RHS Wisley shop down the road from me.

 

P.S. It's suffered through years of neglect, what's the bettting it dies now I have found a good use for it ;)

Tbh, mint actually goes with loads and loads of things you wouldn't expect...

And mint does.not.die... that plant goes wild when left unchecked

Think I'll have to pick one of these up for the kitchen, presumably do well on a windowsill too

Oooh, it sounds like it could be a good addition to a cold brew for the summer days! With a good coffee with chocolatey notes? 

Please keep us updated! 😀
