A Beginners Guide to CBD Coffee
We love coffee, you love coffee… and how do we make coffee even better? Add a little bit of cannabidiol, or CBD. At District Hemp Botanicals, we’ve partnered with Northern Virginia local favorite Grounds Central Station* in Old Town Manassas to make all of your coffee dreams come true — we’ve infused CBD into their whole bean coffee. Like wine amongst other revered beverages, there are a variety of different blends and we’ve stuck to three favorites: Sumatran, Columbian, and Ethiopian. Here are is a breakdown so that you can better understand what each of these unique blends has to offer.
If you’re looking for a conversation starter amongst coffee aficionados, bring up the topic of the Sumatra blend. Despite having a “love or hate it” stigma attached to it, the Sumatra is actually one of our favorite blends when infused with CBD. Sumatra coffee is lower in acidity, comparative of Columbian and Ethiopian, while still maintaining a bold, almost spicy flavor. If you’ve never tried a Sumatran blend coffee, we highly recommend it!
Columbian coffee offers a rich, mild flavor, which is generally a favorite amongst coffee lovers and the general public alike. Due to the higher elevation in Columbia where the majority of Columbian coffee beans are roasted, people say that it has a better flavor. That being said, Columbian coffee is often considered the best coffee due to it’s growing conditions, processing methods, and flavor profile.
Did you know that Ethiopia is actually where Coffea arabica (the coffee plant) originates? Ethiopian coffee is oftentimes a staple blend within the coffee community. When it comes to the Ethiopian blend of coffee, it has a very rich aroma and it’s heavy in body with an almost floral or fruity flavor.
Benefits of CBD Coffee
Now that you know what the different types of blends, let’s talk about the benefits of CBD coffee. First of all, you know that anxiousness or coming-out-of-your-skin feeling after having one too many cups of coffee? Well, that’s how CBD-infused coffee can be of help. CBD can actually counteract the many effects of caffeine, which can be beneficial for anyone who wants a little boost without the nasty side-effects.
