Velvety, volcanic coffee
To make delicious CBD Coffee you need delicious coffee beans.
For ours we use a Tanzanian arabica. Smooth and intensely velvety, this bean grows on the volcanic soils of Mount Kilimanjaro, where nutrient rich soils ensure it has the best start to life.
…Kilimanjaro coffee exhibits distinct origin tasting flavors along with a lovely body and shining acidity that have given it a reputation as one of Africa’s best coffees.” – Espresso Coffee Guide
Whole plant medicine
The next, and final ingredient is hemp.
The key difference between hemp and cannabis is their THC content. THC is the mystical, psychoactive chemical which gets you ‘high’. Cannabis contains a lot while hemp does not.
Both contain a spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, nutrients and compounds, all interacting with each other and you, to create what is called ‘the entourage effect’ or ‘whole plant medicine’.
To protect these delicate compounds and ensure that they reach your cup of coffee, we extract and infuse, both slowly and gently. The process we use is called, sub-critical CO2 extraction and is regarded as the most ‘natural’ method.
How to brew
Our preferred method for brewing CBD Coffee is a cafetiere / french press. While you can use any method, we do advise you avoid paper filters, as these can absorb your coffee’s CBD-carrying oils.
- Add 10-15g of coffee per cup to your cafetiere.
- Then add near boiling water, stir and wait 3-4 minutes.
- Finally push the strainer / plunger down gently, and pour yourself a cup.
