The owners of this Chinatown coffee shop came to love CBD long before adding it to the menu. Aisa Shelley explains, “We, the owners, started using it in our coffee and beverages and thought it would be good to offer to our customers.” Oliver Coffee currently uses CBD oils and sells products from Natural Extract.
Mr. Shelley remarks that Oliver Coffee also caters to those who would rather skip the caffeine. “We wanted to pair it with coffee and also with caffeine-alternatives because that’s really big now too,” he says. Oliver Coffee currently sells a golden turmeric latte, a rose-infused maple syrup oat milk latte and a spicey chai, all of which are infused with CBD.
In addition to these off-menu items—ask the barista. they’ll know—you can add CBD to any drink on the menu. About his own CBD use, Mr. Shelley explains, “I find that it’s like taking a bunch of Advil. You just feel better. […] I take it in the morning and it makes me a little more optimistic and ready for the day.”
