  • Honest Energy™ - Brewed cacao contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be more pleasant than caffeine. Unlike caffeine – which is harsh with a spike and following crash – theobromine works with your body, not against it, giving you a mild, long-lasting lift without making you feel nervous or jittery.

Cacao is loaded with nutrients that can lower your acidity intake, boost your immune system, help you lose weight, and best of all help you feel great, increase focus, reduce stress, and sleep better.
  • 100% Pure Ground Cacao: Keto, Paleo, Non-GMO, Kosher, Sugar-free, Dairy-free, & Gluten-free. 

 

Ghana Cacao Bean Origin - Volta River, Ghana.
Winding throughout the country, the Volta River gives shape to the lovely landscape of Ghana. The surrounding agricultural area is dotted with small, family-owned farms that produce the very best African cacao for Crio Bru. The dark, earthy-toned beans are carefully selected to enhance the full-bodied chocolate flavor, with hints of coconut and cinnamon.

Nicaragua Cacao Bean Origin - Managua, Nicaragua.
For the past few years, we have been working with one of the leading cacao purveyors from Nicaragua. We are ecstatic to be able to bring you this new variety that showcases the exceptional quality they are able to provide. 

There are many wonderful cacao varieties in Nicaragua for making chocolate but we have selected this particular one for its amazing flavor when brewed.

The best, must try

I purchased the starter kit and brewed some of this cacao in the high quality French press that was included which turned out excellent. I do not drink cream or sugar in my coffee and this had an excellent taste with a chocolatey aftertaste. I also brewed a pot in my Cuisinart using the Bold Brew button and the 1-4 cup button and it even turned out better. The only issue I had was that it did not last that long. I now by the 5 lb bags. With the health benefits I recommend all coffee drinkers to drink this or at least try it once. You will be pleasantly satisfied I'll never go back to coffee.

Not bad on my first time

Bought the sampler and I trully enjoyed my first cup of crio cacao hot drink. I will def switch to this from drinking coffee. I only gave 4 stars just because the sampler bags are not resealable :-(

Best hot drink ever

I purchased this on a whim based on an ad I saw online. I've never been a coffee drinker, but have tried many coffee alternates over the years. None of them compare to Crio Bru. I like the light and medium roasts, while my wife prefers the French roasts. I've already gone back and ordered 5 more bags to try more flavors.

Learning to use the French press was simple enough, but it is a pain to clean. I'm considering buying a coffee maker with a slow brew process in hopes that it's easier to clean--but am a little worried about getting the strength right. I let the light roasts sit in the French press for 7 minutes, stir, then one more minute. For medium and French roasts, I let them sit for 6 minutes, stir, then one more minute.

Not for lazy people

I've read mixed reviews about this product and I'm not sure the negative ones are fair ...here's why:

Cacao is actually a superfood that many ppl use as a health supplement......It's not like the mass produced, heavily processed coffee most folks are used to. So knowing how to prepare it is going to be a bit of a learning curve...as it's definitely NOT akin to your typical k-cup experience.

I shop at lots of health food type grocery stores and many of them sell cold superfood coffee drinks and many contain cacao as a key ingredient...(in place of coffee)

Knowing that, I prepared my first batch of Crio Bru...and it was my first time working with a French press so I made an absolute mess....:p ..... I added coconut milk and monkfruit sugar (as I do with my coffee) and it tasted pretty good.

But the magic happened when I decided to add it to my shaker bottle with ice....

Yumm!!

It's so good iced, I'm going to make a batch every night for work the next day! Excited to try adding different superfood powders to it like lion's mane, turmeric, etc..... I'm excited because I know it will help me not to feel hungry throughout the rest of the day...plus I know I'm getting quality nutrition without the jitters...and crash of caffeine!

Another recommendation I would have for those of you who want to reduce your coffee intake: Brew some and add it to half a cup of your regular coffee....

What that does is it cuts down on the amount of coffee while introducing the cacao to your…
