Italian term or phrase: farina di canapa sativa
Hi, I am trying to find the right term for "canapa sativa" as when ever I google it to find out what it is, I get "cannabis sativa" as the thing that returns. Seeing as this is an ingredient in coffee, I'm not quite sure that's the note I want to hit, nor am I sure that it is correct, given that canapa translates as "hemp".

If anyone could enlighten me, I would appreciate it.

hemp flour
Explanation:
Cannabis Sativa is the scientific name of hemp. According to Wikipedia, "Each part of the plant is harvested differently, depending on the purpose of its use."
Frankly, I do not know why it should be added to coffee, but I checked on the Internet and I've seen that hemp flour is used in baking and cooking.

Reference information:
I have not seen hemp flour used in coffee but I have come across hemp seeds.

HEMP SEED COFFEE
http://www.hippiebutter.com/hemp-seed-coffee/

Hemp coffee is a mixture of hemp seeds from the Cannabis sativa plant and coffee beans, which are typically organically grown. People might drink this beverage for its nutty flavor and health benefits of omega fatty acids. Hemp coffee typically contains very minute amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical in the marijuana plant that produces a hallucinogenic high. Hemp comes from the seeds and stalks of the plant, while the leaves and flower buds contain THC.
