Now you can actually add your favourite plant to your favourite drink! Coffee lovers, you now have a new drink you need to try! There are two different ways to put kief in coffee. The first being directly adding the kief to the cup with a few extra steps involved. The second being adding cannabis-infused milk to your cup of coffee.
Decarb your Kief
This is a question with a fairly detailed answer, and one we go into at length in our article “The 3 Best Ways to Decarb Your Weed“, but the short version is: Place your kief into a flat layer on a parchment paper lined baking tray and set it into the oven at 230°F for 30 minutes to 1 hour. You’ll need to keep a close eye on it as it cooks to make sure it doesn’t burn; if the color starts looking too brown it’s time to pull it out, no matter how long it’s been in the oven. Stirring it to mix on occasion will also help prevent burning.
After your kief has been decarbed it is now activated and ready to be used in any dish you’d like, including making cannabis infused coffee. To derive the maximum benefit we recommend using a splash of milk or creamer in your coffee, topping off with fresh coffee if needed to make sure it stays hot. The fat molecules present in the dairy will give the cannabinoids leeching away from the kief/cannabis something to bind to, making the THC more well blended with the drink; otherwise, we recommend making sure you sip out every last drop & piece of kief left in the cup, to make sure you’re getting the full benefit of the cannabis within.
There are a few problems when it comes to using option one because the Kief itself will remain the drink, which can sometimes lead to a gritty and hard to drink coffee with chunks of Kief inside, and this can wreck the whole experience of Kief for you. The second method is a better-tasting way and will make it a better experience to put Kief in your coffee.
To do this, the basic method is putting Kief inside of a fatty liquid (such as milk or butter) for a long period of time at a low temperature, and then the THC will start to release from the plant, and it will start to decarb. You have to add Kief to milk; then, you can add the milk into your coffee.

Is kief coffee worth it?
