GHANA FRENCH ROAST: Bold & Roasty Flavor

Delicious bold and roasty natural chocolate taste with an earthy flavor. If desired, add your favorite creamer or sweetener.

 

Brews Like Coffee, Tastes Like Heaven

Roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee, Crio Bru Brewed Cacao has the amazing flavor and aroma of pure dark chocolate. Brew our 100% pure ground cacao in your French press or coffee maker, and your kitchen will have the aroma of pure dark chocolate heaven in no time. 

Superfood Packed with Nutrients

Cacao is packed with nutrients like antioxidants to boost your immune system and magnesium to support bone, brain, and heart health. Additionally, while low in carbs and calories, cacao also acts as a natural appetite suppressant. Best of all, cacao is loaded with natural mood enhancers that can help you feel great, increase focus, reduce stress, and sleep better. 

Honest Energy™

Brewed cacao is 99.9% caffeine free but contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine. 

100% Pure Ground Cacao

100% PURE GROUND CACAO: Keto, Paleo, Whole 30, Non-GMO, Kosher, Sugar-free, Dairy-free, & Gluten-free. 

 

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.

Ingredients: Cacao Beans (Cocoa Beans)

Not Quite

I was looking for a brewed chocolate beverage without the cream and sugar of traditional hot cocoa drinks. So I was not surprised by the bitter taste and watery consistency of Criu Bru. That's exactly what I wanted! However, I was surprised by how different the actual product is from the advertised product.

First, Crio Bru does NOT brew just like coffee. A more accurate slogan would be "Brews Kind of Like Coffee." You cannot use a standard coffee maker without a special setting and a gold filter, and you cannot use a manual drip cone. You can use a French Press, but you must let it brew longer and it is messier to strain. After lots of experimenting, I found the best method was to let the cacao and water barely simmer (very, very gently) on the stove top for at least ten minutes. Then strain using a fine mesh strainer. (I tried straining through a drip cone with a paper liner, keeping as much cacao as possible in the pan, but the paper filter clogged immediately). While simmering, the fragrance is heavenly. The actual taste is quite bitter, even for someone like me who likes it very bitter.

The brewed cacao tastes much better diluted with almond milk or soymilk, and it even better served as an iced beverage. And that is the second discrepancy. The product is not as low in fat as Criu Bru indicates. After an hour or two in the fridge there is a definite layer of saturated fat all over the sides of the pitcher. I was shocked by the amount of fat.…

LOVED Ghana French Roast!

This stuff is over-the-top good! The flavor is so robust, rich, and full-bodied and the aroma is delightful. I'm NOT a coffee drinker of any kind, but I've always appreciated the aesthetic of a finely brewed coffee from having seen and smelled good coffee at local coffee bars. A family member bought a French press some time ago that I began using. Making it in a French press is much easier than making coffee in one. I added my own little touch by adding a bit of cinnamon, allspice, cayenne, and honey. OMG!!!!

Everything I wanted

They say that they'll give you your money back if you don't love it. As much as I like free stuff, I'm now ordering a 5 lb bag, so.... Yes, Love it.

I've been experimenting with it. They recommend you avoid paper filters. While I think that a siphon system is the best way to brew coffee, this product doesn't like cloth filters either. So far, French Press has given me my best cup. However, I'm thinking that a peculator or even an old fashioned boiling method might be even better.

I have added orange peel and chai masala spice while brewing and it is incredible!

Definitely recommend this!

Weak

Brewed per the instructions, I was disappointed that it was so weak. I expected more body but it looked like strong tea when poured.

Excellent!

I can't express how much I love this product! I'm using this to wean myself off of my coffee addiction. The stimulant is much smoother than caffeine and lasts longer, which means no jitters and no crash. I love the way it tastes and it had a smooth, luxurious texture. I have successfully drastically cut my coffee consumption. So far I've tried Ghana French Roast and have a bag of Ecuador French Roast on the way and I look forward to trying other flavors as well. I don't want to run out of my new found morning brew.
