Crio Brü



"Crio Brü is brewed drink made from 100% cacao beans (also known as cocoa beans), roasted to perfection. Named after the most prized of cacao beans, the Criollo, Crio Brü will astound your taste buds with its complex chocolaty flavors and subtle aromas which come right from the cacao bean itself! It is 100% natural and 100% pure.
Crio Brü is the ultimate superfood. It is low in calories and contains no sugar, no fat, no dairy, no sodium, no cholesterol and practically no caffeine, yet is extremely high in antioxidants, theobromine and a host of other vitamins and minerals.
Crio Brü is both a new drink and an ancient one. Ka'kao was an everyday drink of the kings and peoples of the great Incas, Mayans, Olmecs and Aztecs for hundreds of years, but was changed when the Old World met the New. The incredible health properties of cacao are currently lost in the process of making modern chocolate, but with Crio Brü, they are preserved."

Crio Brü is the perfect coffee alternative. It is a delicious antioxidant rich beverage that is chocolate bliss in a bag! It smells amazing and contains no fat, gluten, GMO`s, sodium, cholesterol, sugar, salt or MSG. It also contains no allergens of any kind. Crio Brü is made the same way you make coffee, and the best way to prepare it is with a French Press. It takes longer to brew than coffee and this allows you to do that. Steep time is best around 10 minutes. Regular coffee makers work but it is best to use a permanent reusable filter. 
The brewed cocoa is so unique. It is 100% cocoa and is not sweet as it is like coffee. You may add some cream or sugar, but it is delicious on its on. If you want it to be more like a gourmet hot cocoa, you will be amazed by how it transforms by adding cream and sugar!
Though comparable to coffee or hot chocolate, there is nothing like this drink. With a french press, the longer the product steeps the richer and more chocolate-y the flavor comes out. This product has less caffeine than decaf coffee and comes in a huge variety of flavors. You may view the different varieties here
The different flavors are amazing! We love the Maya blend as it has cayenne and cinnamon so it creates a nice warming sensation as you drink it. The Cavalla has flavor notes of coconut and cinnamon. The cinnamon is more subtle than the Maya and it's absolutely delicious. The Maracaibo has notes of vanilla, cherry, and a caramelized nutty finish. 
Crio Brü has complex, earthy and smooth flavors. We love how the various flavors taste, and it makes a hot, sophisticated drink that is much better than hot chocolate. Plus, it is significantly healthier and boots your immune symstem with antioxidants, increases energy naturally, curbs your appetite and promotes weight loss, supports your heart, brain, and bones, maintains healthy blood sugar levels, and is healthy and safe for kids. 

We also highly recommend their Crio Beans, which are amazing! A must-try!
