Crio Bru is Roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee!! It is pure ground cacao that can be made in your French press or coffee maker (on a long brew).
I have had it hot and iced, with dairy free creamer and without.
To me without creamer (brewed in a tea cup/strainer) the flavor is like a drinking chocolate versus a hot chocolate. So it is very coffee like.

- theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine.
- magnesium to support bone, brain,heart health
- low in carbs and calories
- also acts as a natural appetite suppressant
- loaded with natural mood enhancers that can help focus, stress, and sleep!
- less acidic than coffee
My 13 year old tried this and loved it! She said it feels like shes drinking a decaf coffee. I have been making a hot drink with her breakfast everyday and use a bit of cinnamon and dairy free creamer. The flavor is very mild, but amazing! Most of the time she cant tell if its a coffee or a cocoa! SCORE!
