Clean the rectangle silicone mold, dry and spritz with rubbing alcohol.
Chop up goat milk soap base using a soap knife into small chunks. Toss chopped soap into a medium bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and melt on 30 second intervals, stirring intermittently to avoid burning. Remove melted soap promptly from the microwave.
Add hazelnut extract and optional coffee bean fragrance oil to melted soap and whisk to combine. Add coffee grounds and whisk thoroughly. Pour hazelnut coffee soap into prepared silicone mold. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles in soap.
Let soap cool in mold for 1 to 2 hours or until solid before removing from mold.
Yields: 4 soap bars
