IT'S NOT COFFEE | IT'S CACAO: Roasted, ground, and brewed like coffee, Crio Bru Brewed Cacao has flavor and aroma of unsweetened pure dark chocolate. Instead of coffee bean grounds, it's 100% pure ground cacao.
Crio Bru Brewed Cacao is made any way that traditional coffee is brewed. You can brew it in a French Press, coffee machine (gold tone or mesh filter- no paper filters), pour over, etc. Keurig and Espresso machines are among the few options we don't recommend using.
You can also mix our grounds with your coffee grounds before brewing and make a delicious mocha. If desired you can also add your favorite creamer or sweetener. See our brewing guide for more information.
Crio Bru Brewed Cacao is 99.99% caffeine free with 10 mg caffeine per 8 oz cup (similar to a cup of decaf coffee). Brewed Cacao also has theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine.
Crio Bru Brewed Cacao is 100% pure unsweetened ground cacao that is brewed like coffee. Hot chocolate is cocoa powder (a processed component of cacao) that dissolves into hot water that also has sugar, milk powder, and additives.
