    I wanted to love this.....

    I do like the flavor and the benefits of cacao vs. coffee. This particular brew does have that chocolaty flavor, which is very inviting. That said, the amount you need to have a really flavorful cup is a lot and that results in two issues. First, it makes it very expensive. Secondly, using a French Press having to use as many beans as it takes to get a robust flavor just doesn't work well at all. This morning I ended up with about a 3rd of a cup. The half cup suggested per 8 ozs of water just is not sufficient, and this was mentioned to me by a customer before I decided to buy, so it isn't just me that feels this way. So sadly, I will not be buying again.

    Not what I expected

    I don't think I was prepared for the taste its strong and pungent just not in a way I really like I guess. Its tolerable with sweetener and milk. I really think I had no idea how raw chocolate tasted until now. I will say the type of energy you get from it is a whole other type of sensation than anything I've experienced before. It's like strong and bold and kind of gives you the feeling of having chills throughout your body. That being said it really only feels like you body has energy. Your mind is still left unalert and drowsy. Good preworkout if you're already awake though. I did order another kind to give it a try and still plan on trying the others just to see.

    I can't believe how much I love this!

    I have been using a stovetop percolator from the 1940s to brew all my Crio Bru and the richness is beyond description. (once it starts to boil, I let it perc for about 4-5 minutes until the aroma is full) I am a diehard black coffee lover and I have never liked cocoa because it was too milky sweet. These are a game-changer. I have added them to my weekly line-up.

    Chocolate Richness

    I just christened my new French press by brewing some Nicaragua Med Roast. Delicious. Boiled some water, let the cacao steep, heated my mug with hot water. Right after the second stir I heated some unsweetened almond milk with a touch of maple syrup. After pressing and combining, I frothed with an upright blender. Better than coffee! I have no complaint with the cacao. I do wish the press were double-walled to keep the second cup warmer.

    My absolute FAVORITE-FAVORITE

    I love Nicaragua - Med. Roast. I love it by itself and I use it to blend with other flavors. It seems to have a smooth, non-acid taste to it. It is wonderful to blend with the Peppermint and with the Double Chocolate. We used it to blend with other samples in the sample box that we thought were okay but we were not particularly drawn to and it seemed to lift the flavors. ~ I bought a 5 lb bag for my Pops and it is his absolute favorite too. He makes a huge batch for himself and drinks about 32 ounces of it throughout the day.
