One of the fastest growing segments of the coffee industry is CBD coffee. Here at Best Quality Coffee, we've had more than our fair share of CBD coffees and can confidentially say we've tried some of the best of the best in this space. Even so, we're still always excited to come across new brands. Coldfire Coffee Roasters recently reached out to us for an unbiased review of their CBD coffee and we've compiled the results in this article.
Before getting right into this Coldfire Roaster review, let's briefly go over what CBD is.
What is CBD
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis or marijuana plant. Studies have shown that it's effective for helping with a variety of health issues from anxiety to chronic joint pain. As someone who's personally benefited from using CBD, I can say that these claims have totally matched my experiences. It's important to mention that CBD will NOT get you high. In the interests of time, I won't go into all of the details of CBD and how it's an excellent natural healthy remedy. Feel free to ready this article from HealthLine.com for more details.
One of the things that makes CBD coffee so interesting is because it combines the effects of caffeine and CBD. Everyone knows that people don't drink coffee just for the taste. Coffee's caffeine gives you a distinct energy boost that many rely on. However, it can sometimes come with unwanted jitters. CBD, on the other hand, is known for its relaxing but not sedating effects and serves as a perfect complement to caffeine. Coldfire Roasters Hemp K Cups and coffee delivers a perfect ratio of CBD extract to caffeine. This harmonious balance takes the edge off of caffeine without cancelling the benefits of the CBD or Hemp.
Any reputable CBD coffee brand will make its lab tests available to the public. If they aren't available on the site, don't hesitate to request them from the company. If they don't give you the results, that's a good sign to move on. Fortunately, Coldfire Roasters makes this important information available right off of their website.

I'm personally a fan of strong coffee so I first went with the Cuban Dark Roast which is an espresso blend. Be forewarned, this is powerful coffee and is intense in every sense of the word. It's rich, dark, and bold. By adding some cream, it was a perfect match for my preferences. For those familiar with Peet's coffee which is known for its strength, I'd say this coffee is right on par with that level of intensity. I'd describe the acidity as light to medium and there was a very subtle flavor in spite of this being a strong dark roast. I enjoyed this CBD K Cup very much and again, would recommend it for those who love a robust coffee.

The next blend was the CBD-infused Colombian Blend. Like the Cuban blend, you can taste the quality of the coffee beans that were sourced. This is a good choice for those who prefer a more balanced coffee as it's a medium roast that delivers a smoother and more rounded coffee experience.
If the Cuban blend was Mike Tyson, the Colombian blend is James Bond.
This blend has a medium body backed by a strong flavor. You can definitely taste hints of citrus and floral tones which were very enjoyable.

Coldfire Coffee Review: Packaging
I'm one of those coffee reviewers that rarely comments on packaging. Even though it contributes to the full coffee experience, I just thought it wasn't very important especially compared to the quality of the coffee. However, this packaging is worth making an exception for. The design of the CBD K Cup boxes are intricately patterned and very professionally done. The bottom of the boxes even have the flags of the countries from which the beans were sourced. This obviously isn't the most important part of the coffee, but I appreciated how Coldfire Coffee went to great lengths to deliver a luxury coffee experience at every step of the way.
Coldfire Coffee Review: CBD
As someone who uses CBD regularly, I consider myself fairly attune to my body and how I feel. The coffee's CBD is sourced from American Hemp. This CBD helped me focus better while completing my daily tasks (which included writing this very CBD coffee review). I can say this CBD helped improve my mental acuity without making me feel sedated in the least.
At the end of the day, I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this coffee. You can tell that the owners of this coffee company appreciate strong coffee. It really shows in how they decided to roast their beans. In my experience, a majority of the available CBD coffees tend to be lacking in true intensity. They may have good flavor, but knock you on your rear for lack of a better word. In my opinion, this coffee does that just that and I'm glad to see that Coldfire Coffee Roasters has filled this industry need in full.
