Two Simple Ways to Infuse Coffee (there are other ways!):
1. Tinctures and distillate may be added directly to you cup of coffee with no special preparations required- just mix well.
2. Infuse a pot of coffee:
0.02oz of decarboxylated cannabis
2tbsp butter or coconut oil
1 large container to strain into
1 pan or coffee maker for final brewing
Grind up the cannabis as fine as possible
Bring 3c water to a boil in a pan and add in 2tbsp of butter or coconut oil
Reduce to simmer and sprinkle in the cannabis and let simmer for 40min, stirring occasionally to keep the herb from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Remove from heat and pour through strainer into container.
Take the infused water and use the water to brew your coffee like you normally would.
