This flavor is bold and has a bite to it like dark chocolate does.

Not sure if I tasted the flavor notes they mentioned but I still like it.

My husband prefers it with cream, but he also adds cream to his coffee.

If you're looking for a sweet hot cocoa this probably isn't the product for you. If you are a true dark chocolate lover in a every sense of the word this is a must have! I wasn't sure what to expect at first and I must admit I still wasn't sure about it taking my first few sips but it didn't take long before I was hooked! I drink it unsweetened but you can add sugar or substitute if you'd like. The best part about it is that it kills my chocolate cravings!! I'm such a junk-food-aholic at night so I drink a cup or two after dinner and late at night and have NO desire to shove candy bars and cupcakes down my throat. It's extremely high in antioxidants and very low in calories. It's pure chocolate and it just makes you feel good.

I am having a love affair with Crio Bru Vega Real. I have brewed myself a 32oz French press of coffee every morning for the past 20 years. I drink my coffee black and my favorite beans come from East Africa/Arabia, specifically Kenya and Yemen. I don't wake up needing my "coffee fix" and I don't drink coffee if I am not at home and great coffee isn't available, but it is a ritual for me and I could never have imagined living without it. But as I got older, I started having some health issues (hypothyroid, adrenal burnout) and I knew that the best medicine would come from cleaning up my overall diet -- and this meant I had to consider eliminating my morning coffee. I love tea of all kinds...but there is no tea that can come close to the experience of an incredible cup of coffee! Enter Crio Bru. After doing my research and reading reviews, I had high expectations. I can honestly say the Crio Bru EXCEEDED my expectations. I brewed up my first French press (using 2 heaping tablespoons to 6oz of water and steeping for 12 minutes), poured myself a steaming mug, and was immediately hit with the rich, thick, dark chocolate aroma of this incredible elixir. The more you continue to drink it, the more you appreciate the complexity of the beverage. It is pure magic! My husband prefers it with cream, but he also adds cream to his coffee. I completely enjoy it black, but I can imagine that if you are one who prefers a milky sweetness to your chocolate, cream and sugar would transform this beverage into a decadent dessert. Best of all, Crio Bru is actually less expensive pound for pound than good quality coffee! And if you buy it in bulk (6-12oz bags) the price drops from $15/bag to $10/bag, which translates to just $2/32oz French press or just $.35/cup. I am beyond thrilled to have found this product! Thank you Amazon and thank you to all of the previous reviewers for encouraging me to give this a try.

This product is amazing. The smell as soon as the bag is open is heavenly - such a 'real' chocolate aroma. And the taste is so much better!
It is promoted as being able to brew just like coffee - that is you can use it in a drip machine or french press. But it doesn't 'taste' like coffee - this is full on chocolate tasting!! Personally I dont like it made with water, I prefer the creaminess of a hot chocolate made with milk. But i do make the concentrate as per instructions on their website - mix some Crio Bru (quite a bit!) with sugar and water - boil and simmer to make a cacao concentrate that can be added to anything for a chocolate fix. Even poured over ice cream! And that it has no sugar or fat (marginal) of its own - it is guilt free, which you just cant believe as you take a sip - the flavour is so much fuller, stronger, smoother than any hot chocolate or even candy bar I've had. And I'll happily give them up and live on Crio Bru! The only down side is that being ground cacao beans, you do need to strain any liquid drinks or syrups you make - although they grind is quite edible on its own if you dont mind a bit of 'roughage'. It is great added into granola or the like 'raw' straight from the pouch.

I received the Vega Real flavor and the Cavalla flavor as gifts. This flavor is decent and you get the typical chocolatey flavor of steeped cocoa beans, but it is unpleasantly bitter. It's better if you add some sugar, but the Cavalla flavor is unquestionably better. I would absolutely recommend purchasing the Cavalla flavor instead.

Dreck! A friend came home from vacation with a bunch of this, varied flavors. They are all bad. Smell good when you open the bag, but tastes weak, watery, bitter. Could not ever get it to suit my palate. Could not add enough sweetner of any kind to make it drinkable. I tried it daily for 4 days. Did not notice any lift/energy increase as touted. If you look them up on Shark Tank you will get a pretty good idea of how bad this tastes at first sip.

This "choffee" really tastes great and is low in calories. I drink it just hot from a coffee press cup and finds it satisfies my desire for chocolate. It is a great pick-me-up in the afternoon. It is also great with a little cream but I am counting calories and find I don't need it.
