After making our way through an entire 100mg container of KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans, we’re convinced that these edibles deserve an almost-perfect score of 4.8 out of 5. These bite-sized edibles are just as convenient as they are delicious, and they kick in faster than many competing THC treats.
The effects of our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans were mild enough to leave something to be desired, but they certainly weren’t disappointing. At $18 per 100mg container, it’s our opinion that KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans are priced just right.
We give KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans an A+ for flavor. To make these delicious edibles, KIVA slathers Tanzanian coffee beans from the Bay Area’s legendary Andytown Coffee Roasters with semisweet chocolate and covers the entire concoction with confectioner’s glaze.
The resulting edible might not pass the muster of the most ardent natural foods fanatic, but to our less-refined sensibilities, KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans tasted downright delectable, and they provided a perfect blend of chocolate and espresso.
As we chewed on our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans, it was easy to forget that they contain THC. There aren’t many tastes more intense than roasted coffee beans, which goes some way to explain this lack of cannabis taste. We also suspect that KIVA uses high-quality distillate, which is almost flavorless.
The effects of our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans kicked in within around 30 minutes, which is relatively fast for a THC edible. We wonder if some sort of undiscovered enzymatic synergy between THC and the active components in coffee beans may have improved the bioavailability of our cannabis-infused espresso treat.
Once they kicked in, the effects of our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans lasted for around an hour. We only ate one 5mg bean to start since we wanted to fully gauge the effectiveness of this innovative KIVA Confections product.
We’re pleased to say that the effects of our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans exceeded our expectations. We’re slightly less pleased to report that these effects remained remarkably mild.
Perhaps due to the influence of caffeine, our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans provided a stronger head high and a milder body high. After gauging the effects of a single bean, we continued snacking on our KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans throughout the day, following KIVA’s recommended dosage of 1-2 beans per hour.
Here’s a quick summary of the activation time and effects we experienced with KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans:
KIVA Confections uses locally-sourced espresso beans and sustainable cacao to produce its KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans. Featuring semisweet chocolate and reasonably natural additional ingredients, these KIVA cannabis-infused espresso beans walk the line between mainstream and gourmet.
Founded in 2010, KIVA has had more than a decade to expand into one of the nation’s most well-known and renowned cannabis edibles brands. Based in California, KIVA also has a presence in Illinois and Arizona.
Perhaps most famous for its chocolate bars, KIVA also produces gummies, mints, and “bites.” KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans are a member of the latter category, and other examples of chocolate-covered KIVA bites include this brand’s Sea Salt Caramels, Almonds, and Blueberries.
Let’s summarize the key points you should know about KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans:
KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans are ideal for casual and veteran THC users who are looking for a convenient edible to use on the go. Combining cannabis and caffeine, each KIVA THC espresso bean provides a significant sativa kick that produces an enjoyable head high.
These edibles aren’t meant to be enjoyed in large quantities all at once. Instead, space your ingestion of KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans out over time to enjoy the best effects.
We found that a single 5mg bean provided the best dosage of KIVA Confections Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans. At most, consider eating 2-3 beans at a time. Anything more than that might generate a caffeine buzz that overshadows the effects of THC.
Kiva Confections sources its espresso beans from Tanzania. They’re sustainably sourced, medium-roasted, and utterly delicious.
Kiva Terra Bites are sold throughout LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Tahoe, Sacramento, and Palm Springs. Check Kiva’s website for a full list of locations.
