Crio Bru – 100% Roasted & Ground Cacao Beans
THE CRIO BRU STORY
Created by the ancient Incas and rediscovered for today, Crio Bru is the ultimate superfood, a delicious all-natural coffee alternative made from the finest fair trade cacao beans – roasted, ground and brewed just like coffee. But unlike coffee, it’s 99% caffeine free, high in antioxidants and theobromine for a focused, Honest Energy boost that will keep you feeling great all day, without jitters or sleeplessness.
As for the taste and aroma, it’s like the best dark chocolate; enjoy it with your favorite sweetener or creamer, or just as it is, hot or iced: natural, earthy, uplifting!
How do I brew it?
Crio Bru is made any way that traditional coffee is brewed. You can make it in a standard auto-drip machine with a permanent gold filter (not paper), or in a French Press. To brew a strong cup of Crio, think hotter and longer. Set your auto-drip to brew slowly or brew it 10-12 minutes in a French Press with boiling water. Drink it “black” with nothing added or experiment with your favorite creamer and sweetener. Feeling adventurous? Try a dash of cinnamon, or even mix it with ground coffee to make an incredible Crio Mocha.
What is Honest Energy?
The natural energy boost you get with a cup of Crio Bru comes honestly, without the discomfort or even harmful effects you may experience with caffeine. Our superior coffee alternative is made with 100% Fair Trade cacao beans, roasted and ground using a proprietary process that preserves many of its plentiful health benefits.
Contrary to what some people believe, cocoa contains little to no caffeine; instead it has theobromine, a natural and gentle stimulant relative to caffeine. Unlike caffeine – which is harsh with a spike and following crash – theobromine works with your body, not against it, giving you a mild, long-lasting lift without making you feel nervous or jittery.
As part of a healthy diet, Crio Bru gives you healthy Honest Energy that keeps you feeling great all day.
But that’s not all. Cacao is 100% gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol free, soy free, sodium free and sugar free. It’s one of nature’s most amazing superfoods, providing not only natural energy, but high antioxidant value, mineral benefits and more*.
