Coffee Kombucha Experiment: Part #1

Pinterest is my go to place for recipe ideas and inspiration.  There are so many interesting finds.  My current find is Coffee Kombucha. Yes this sounds bizarre but also intriguing.  The crazier the recipe, the more likely I would try it.  I am also interested in finding more Kombucha recipes and this one sounded easy enough.  If this is your first time working with Kombucha, read my other posts on growing your own scoby and general care.

I decided to use white sugar for the recipe as I wanted the scoby to have plenty of food.  I am not sure how the coffee will affect it.
