Combine two of the most powerful plants on the planet for a cup full of antioxidants. Proper CBD Infused Coffee takes away the morning stress and post-coffee jitters.
In fact, caffeine happens to be a very good carrier molecule for CBD and increases its efficacy. The CBD helps to modulate the negative aspects of coffee such as the jitters or crash. It also reduces the acidity, which makes it much easier on the gut for a lot of people. Proper Hemp’s CBD Infused Coffee by Doma really is a high-quality dose of CBD that retains all the benefits of CBD, made better by the delicious delivery system. Keep reading for the answers to a few frequently asked questions about this delicious product.
How much CBD is in each cup of coffee?
An average cup of our infused coffee, if brewed according to instructions with 10 grams of coffee per 6-8 ounces of water, yields about 15 mg of CBD. We played with dosage quite a bit to find the right dosage for the amount of caffeine in the beans. We like to drink two cups in the morning. With about 16 ounces of water and 20 grams of coffee, these two cups yield about 30 mg of CBD.
During the infusion process, we also dose up the CBD by about 20% of what is advertised to make sure that customers are getting a solid dose. That’s why our bags test above 600 mg per bag.
Does the CBD get diminished from the boiling water?
In actuality, the hot water is required to release the CBD from the bean. This is why we don’t recommend using a cold brew. Using water just off the boil, 195-200 degrees, to brew your coffee is optimal. We prefer to use a french press to brew our CBD infused coffee, though some like a Chemex type pour-over. Both options work well with a stainless steel filter. Avoid using paper filters during the brewing process since paper filters can capture and trap the CBD.
If the beans are infused and not coated in CBD oil, how is that process done?
The infusion process is a proprietary one that our infuser has been perfecting for almost five years. (This and the fact that DOMA Coffee is a premium coffee, are two big reasons for the cost). Within 48 hours of DOMA roasting the beans, they are transported from northern Idaho to our infuser in Colorado. The process is complex but essentially, heat is used to express the oils from inside of the freshly roasted beans. Then Proper’s broad spectrum CBD extract is introduced. Once the beans cure, the CBD is pulled back into the bean with the natural oils.
How long do the beans last?
We recommend using our CBD Infused Coffee within six months. However, we’ve used coffee that we infused over 15 months prior and it was shockingly good. (The coffee snobs in us were pleasantly surprised!) Something curious happens post-CBD infusion as it increases the CO2 off-gassing in both duration and amount. What we have found is the off-gassing keeps the beans fresher, longer, because it continually drives the flavor degrading oxygen out of the bag’s valve.
As demand has increased, we are now preparing to roast and infuse every month to a couple of times a month. That means we’ll be getting batches to customers and retailers within a few weeks of roasting to maximize freshness.
