Product Description

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 product is disappointing. I loved the Cavalla brewed chocolate (also by Crio Bru), but this one has a main flavor overtone of being burnt. This one has green banana and blackberry overtones that are very pleasant, but really don't compensate for the inferior roast. I found that I preferred this brew when combined with a little of the Cavalla, to calm down the burnt flavor. If this was your first taste of brewed cacao, there is a noticeable difference in the flavor of the different beans, and I recommend trying another for a better and more chocolate-y flavor.

I simply love Crio Bru and am on a quest to try all the different flavors. "Coca River" is the most recent one I've tried. I'll admit, I don't taste all the flavor notes mentioned on the package (in this case, green bananas and blackberries), but I do think it's fun to try varieties of cocoa beans grown in different geographical locations. These are from Ecuador.

I'd say this was a little milder than the Cavalla variety. It doesn't have any added spice (like the Maya or Pumpkin Spice kinds do). I like to have this with a couple of packets of artificial sweetener and a dash of skim milk (it's kind of bitter without that). It's like drinking hot cocoa without all the guilt. (I even bought a coffee maker so I could brew this, and I've been drinking this stuff at least six days a week.)

This is a vegan product and should be suitable for people with a variety of food allergies, since the ingredients list is so simple (zoom in the product images for more information). It smells delicious as soon as you open the bag and, while it's brewing, my whole kitchen smells like chocolate.

The package indicates you should use a metal permanent coffee filter. Having tried both paper and metal filters, I'd agree. Crio Bru has some natural oils that coffee doesn't, and the oils tend to clog up paper filters.

I use three tablespoons of Crio Bru and about 5 "cups" (i.e., "cups" according to the markers on my coffee machine reservoir) of water to make two mugs' worth. This is a value I had to experiment with for awhile to figure out what worked for me -- it may not be the same for everyone.

In the end, though, I love this stuff and will definitely be buying it again.

I love it! Brewed with a french press and boiling water, waited 15 minutes, pressed, poured, added a touch of stevia (my favorite sweetener) and sipped to enjoy the wonderful flavor. If you like deep flavors and dark chocolate, this is for you!

This chocolate drink is a great change-off from tea or coffee. I like to sweeten it a little with no calorie sweetener. You could add cream and it would taste more like hot chocolate. Otherwise it has practically no calories. You need to use more "grounds" than you do for coffee in order to get enough flavor, so it may be a bit expensive for some. You will either like the taste, or hate it. I love it.

I cut my caffine in half by using this mixed with my coffee. I like all the flavors I tried. This is especially good for an after dinner coffee. My girlfriend doesn't even use coffee anymore. I don't think that's for me tho.

I saw this on Shark Tank and was intrigued so I ordered a bag. You open the package and it smells like chocolate - so delish! Yet it brews just like coffee. So I have made it by itself and added it to coffee. Both times I enjoyed it. When brewed alone, it tastes like chocolate coffee - I add cream and sugar as it's got a bite without. I've also added a few teaspoons on top of my coffee grinds and it adds a nice mocha flavor. It's pricey so I wouldn't use it everyday but it's a nice treat.

I've been drinking the cavalla crio bru for about a year now, and I love it. The cocoa river is even better, it tastes more chocolatey. If you like dark chocolate, you'll love this. I drink mine with a little creamer. I don't know about all the health benefits they list on the package, but the decrease in appetite is correct for me. I get a delicious treat, and then I find that I don't want snacks like I normally do throughout the day. I love it!

I just love this product, especially in the winter. The flavor is deep and rich and I love that it's made not very far from me :)
