Crio Bru: It’s not coffee, it’s cacao!
Roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee, brewed cacao has the amazing flavor and aroma of pure dark chocolate. While it brews like coffee, you get the benefits of cacao- a superfood prized by ancient cultures for its energizing and restorative properties.
Crio Bru’s brewed cacao beverage also has theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine. You can use the ground cacao in your French press or coffee maker! We love using this as a coffee alternative!
CRIO BRU STORY
For thousands of years, Central and South American civilizations prepared a chocolaty drink called ka’kao – the drink of the Gods. Served to kings in golden cups, this cacao beverage was prized for its energizing and restorative properties. It was passed down from generation to generation until Cortes landed in the new world and the tradition was lost.
Enter Crio Bru. Founded in 2010 by renowned chocolatier Eric Durtschi, Crio Bru has crafted this ancient tradition into delicious natural/organic brewed cacao beverages.
BREWS JUST LIKE COFFEE
Crio Bru is roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee, but has the amazing flavor and aroma of pure dark chocolate.
Brewed cacao is 99.9% caffeine free but contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be more longer lasting and more pleasant than caffeine.
