BRAND FEATURE: Buddha Beans Coffee Co
Located in Los Angeles, California and established in 2018, Buddha Beans Coffee is micro-roasted using the highest quality, fair trade coffee beans, ensuring consistency and superior flavor in every roast. They also launched the WORLD's FIRST CBG infused Coffee bean!-- Learn what this means here.
Their first roast came out of a hot air popcorn maker. What started as a hobby, soon led to a marriage of their greatest passions, coffee & cannabis. To differentiate themselves from a crowded coffee industry, they began to research a proprietary CBD infusion process unlike any other on the market.
They roast and infuse all of their coffee in-house, but they directly source coffee from a woman ran columbian Coffee Farm. This allows for complete control over raw material input and roast profile. The final product is third party lab tested to ensure quality in every roast.
First off I LOVE their branding, it makes me so happy-- but I love their story and let me tell you-- this is the only coffee I want to drink. It tastes SO GOOD. Not to mention, regular coffee has been affecting my anxiety badly, switching to this CBD coffee allows me to still have my obsession without overwhelming my anxiety. While I have only tried the Mexico blend, I am sure the others are just as delicious. They have a wide array of offerings, including whole bean, ground coffee, single serve pour overs and a coffee scrub! Plus be on the look out they are launching TWO water soluble elixirs. One will be released mid September, called their CBG Wellness Elixir. Stay tuned for our review of this! For anyone who doesn't mess with hemp, they are launching a non-infused coffee line early Fall 2020. Needless to say I am OBSESSED with Buddha Beans and Can't wait to try all their new products!
