    • GHANA LIGHT ROAST: Chocolatey & Smooth Flavor

      Delicious smooth texture and natural chocolate flavor with an earthy flavor. If desired, add your favorite creamer or sweetener.

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.
  • 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.
  • Superfood Packed with Nutrients - Enjoy the benefits of one of nature’s most amazing superfoods. 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.

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…

Cacao Convert on the first sip

I am a life long coffee addict. Recently my doctor suggested I cut back on my caffeine intake, but I don't particularly care for decaf coffee, I think it tastes flat, and the variety of roasts, while better that there used to be , just aren't there.

I stumbled upon brewed cacao from a random ad, and decided to give it a try as I love a good dark chocolate. And I must say, I love it every bit as much as I do coffee, and maybe more. While I haven't tried both varieties that came with this set the Ghana French Roast was top notch and will probably be a go to. Though I am eager to try as many different varieties as I can get my hands on.

The only (extremely minor) issue I have is the lid on the French press doesn't fit snugly ( and I kinda just prefer my fancy Parisian model) , but it still gives me a press that can travel with me so all's well.

I will be highly recommending Crio Bru to any of my coffee addict friends who want a change. And those that don't as well.

Love

Just wanted something new, with the added health benefits. Crio Bru has continually impressed from day 1 of arrival. I have been a customer since October 2020, had my cholesterol checked mid November (252), had return check up March 1st & it was 207! Cacao was the only consistent change I made during that time! I have continued to enjoy all the different flavors and all of the specialty limited flavors. Great customer service!! I already have two friends that have ordered & a few more that are checking it out!!

Thanks!!

Amazing products, amazing customer service

Incorporating CrioBru into my daily routine and eliminating coffee has been life changing. Not only have I eliminated something that would cause jitteriness, then a crash, as well as daily nausea, but I have significantly elevated my health, by instead, consuming this amazing low acidity super food every day. It has inspired further quest for a truly healthy life, besides the fact that it's an incredibly delicious treat I look forward to every morning! I put Laird superfood creamer, frequently the cacao flavor, as well as KOS coconut milk, and refined coconut oil, and some liquid stevia extract, then use the frother. I feel like a kid on a holiday morning each day, as I get to consume this awesome deliciousness. I have recently purchased the "Welcome starter kit", because I'll be traveling & intend to introduce some like-minded health conscious people to this amazing product. When the box arrived, it only contained the french press, and not the actual cacao. Since I was about to leave in a couple of days, I wrote a panicked email to customer service, which was answered immediately, and not only did I receive the missing packets of cacao, but an additional one, to make up for my inconvenience. Incredible! I did not need any convincing to continue to purchase this product. I have not gone a single day without it, since trying it, now over 2 years ago, and honestly, I don't think I can live without it. So please, for all of our benefit, give it a try, and you won't be…
