Here's a few incredible reasons you should be drinking more brewed cacao.
Reason 1: It's tasty! If there were ever a reason to be drinking our cacao brew it's because it tastes amazing. What gives our brew such a strong flavor is our cacao comes from generational farmers that use ancient agricultural practices that are naturally organic and creates an intensely bold chocolate flavor. By steeping our ground cacao for upwards 15 minutes, the natural chocolate flavor has a chance to fully extract and provide you with that incredible Costa Rican chocolate flavor.
Reason 2: It's healthy! It's difficult to find a healthy, lower caffeinated beverage outside of coffee and tea and that's where the health benefits of brewed cacao shine. Cacao brew contains a compound called theobromine which acts similarly to caffeine without the jitters and addictive nature. Cacao brew does still contain caffeine, but approximately 10-15mg compared to coffee's 60-90mg and green and black tea's 30-70mg per cup. Cacao brew also contains tons of polyphenols and flavonoids which are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to reduce inflammation and aid in the prevention of chronic illness.
Reason 3: It's highly customizable! Hot, cold, plain, flavored, the list goes on. The great thing about brewed cacao is you can pretty much customize it how you want and even go 1:1 with your coffee if that flavor profile works. Many of our customers need a coffee replacement for various health reasons, so the transition to cacao brew is quite easy as they can still use their creamers, sugars, and other additives like maple syrup. Not only is the drink itself highly customizable, but you can also put the brew into other beverages! Check out our chocolate frappe video using our brewed cacao. There's truly very little you can't do with our brew.
Brewed cacao can be a delicious addition to your daily routine. If you're just looking to explore some new hot beverage options to mix up your daily routine, then this is the perfect option. If you have dietary restrictions but still want that hot coffee sensation, then brewed cacao also has you covered. You can't go wrong with this powerhouse of flavor and antioxidants.
