Product Description

Size: 12 Ounce

Crio Bru is a 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 Bru 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, yet is extremely high in antioxidants and a host of other vitamins and minerals. Cocoa beans naturally contain a small amount of caffeine as well as large amounts of a healthier stimulant called theobromine. Theobromine provides natural, healthy energy that is longer lasting and more gradual than caffeine so you won’t feel jittery during the day or sleepless at night. Crio Bru 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 Bru, they are preserved. It’s not like hot chocolate … it’s not like coffee or tea … it’s just delicious! Crio Bru has its own unique flavor, look and feel that is unlike anything else you've ever tried.

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.

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.

I followed the how to prepare instructions from several different reviewers and is UGH. It tastes as if I have washed my dirty socks and tried to drink it. I will change my review if I can have it taste half decently as I was looking for a caffeine free alternative to coffee.

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.

This is the breakfast wake up of champions. Who cares about that nasty stuff COFFEE, I LOVE my CHOFFE! This is my go to morning wake up beverage. I don't feel quite the same without it. I love the rich chocolate taste, and that I control how sweet it is, and what to sweeten it with. I have mine with a little xylitol and some organic coconut sugar, and it's delicious!

I recently discovered Crio Bru in a subscription box and absolutely fell in love with it. I even bought a coffee machine so I could brew it easily. And I drink probably 12 cups of Crio Bru a week. It's like having hot chocolate without all the guilt (I do add artificial sweetener and a little skim milk). I've tried probably about half the varieties that are available.

This one is supposed to have hints of strawberry and citrus. I am honestly not sure if I notice that or not, but I have never been able to notice the subtleties of wine, either, so maybe it's just me. (Or perhaps my milk and sweetener are covering that up? It could be. But I find all the varieties to be pretty bitter without milk and sweetener.) I do think this is a bit milder than the Cavalla kind, and definitely less spicy than Maya or Pumpkin Spice.

This smells absolutely wonderful in the package. I use three tablespoons and fill my coffee maker up to the 5-cup mark (well, halfway between 4 and 6 because 5 isn't marked) with water. That translates into about two mugs' worth of beverage. This is somewhat less product than recommended on the package, but that is one of those things you can play with until you find an amount that suits your taste.

Please note: this has some natural oils that come through into the decanter. These can clog up paper filters (I have found this out the hard way). So paper filters really slow down the brewing. I found that a metal permanent filter results in faster brewing and doesn't get clogged by the natural oils. (The bag recommends a metal filter but doesn't say why!) Also, this product is gluten free and vegan (and you can always add almond milk or rice milk instead of dairy milk to keep it that way).

So glad I found this stuff. I'm totally addicted.
