For too long, coffee and marijuana have butted heads in competition for America's chemically influenced affections. Well, those days are gone, thanks to Compelling & Rich, an LA-based coffee company offering "herb-conditioned" coffee beans -- in other words, beans that've been treated with copious amounts of the sticky icky. Hell. Yes.
Kian Abedini, the owner of Compelling & Rich, told LA Weekly he exposes un-roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans to marijuana vapor before actually roasting them, "essentially hot-boxing the roast room." This pre-roast treatment lends the beans the unmistakable flavor and aroma of Snoop Lion's favorite substance, while the roasting process itself actually strips them of any THC garnered from vapor exposure -- THC being the chemical in weed that induces psychoactive effects.
