Cavalla™ Premium roasted cocoa with natural hints of coconut and cinnamon
Winding along its western front, the Cavalla™ River gives shape to the exotic Ivory Coast. The surrounding agricultural area is dotted with small, family-owned farms that produce the very best African cacao. The dark, earthy-toned beans are carefully handpicked and dried naturally by the sun to enhance the full-bodied chocolate flavor, which hints of dark spice, coconut and cinnamon. These incredible natural flavors come to life when you brew a cup of Cavalla™, made from 100% pure, perfectly roasted cocoa beans.
Making Crio Brü is easy, whether in a coffee maker or French Press. And Cavalla™ is incredibly delicious, especially when you add a little creamer and cinnamon.
Cocoa is one of nature's superfoods, delivering heart-healthy nutrients that boost health and wellness.
Here is a list of some of the benefits of incorporating cocoa beans into your life:
Boost your immune system
Antioxidants fight oxidative damage and free radicals in the body. Cocoa contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world, including polyphenols, catechins, and epicatechins. By weight, cocoa has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, açai, pomegranates, and goji berries combined. To see the ORAC USDA chart, visit our FAQs page.
Zinc plays a critical role in supporting your immune system, liver, pancreas and skin.
Increase energy naturally
Cocoa beans contain a natural stimulant called theobromine that is a relative of caffeine. Unlike caffeine, theobromine gives you a noticeable increase in energy without making you feel nervous or jittery. Cocoa naturally contains about 1% theobromine.
Theobromine is gentle, mild, has a slow onset, is long lasting and non-addictive whereas caffeine is intense, strong, fast acting, short lived and addictive.
Curb your appetite and lose weight
Cocoa is one of the great weight loss foods because within its extraordinary nutrition profile it contains the minerals and molecules that help curb appetite and promote weight loss.
Compared to soda, fruit juice and other drinks, Crio Brü has a nominal number of calories and only 1.5 carbs per serving with many health benefits making it a great addition to any health and fitness program.
Support your heart, digestive system, brain and bones
Cocoa has more magnesium that any other food, which supports the heart, aids digestion, balances brain chemistry and builds strong bones. Over 80% of Americans are chronically magnesium deficient.
Crio Brü is a 100% gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, fat free food.
Oxygenate the blood and maintain healthy blood sugar levels
The trace mineral manganese found in cocoa assists iron to oxygenate the blood and form hemoglobin.
Found naturally in cacao, copper helps build healthy blood.
Nearly 80% of Americans are deficient of the trace mineral chromium that helps promote a healthy blood sugar level.
Feel great, increase focus, reduce stress and sleep better
An endorphin or “bliss chemical” called anadamide is produced by our body after exercise that makes us feel great. It has also been found in one plant – cacao.
Our body produces the chemical phenylethylamine when we fall in love and increases focus and alertness. This natural chemical is also found abundantly in cocoa.
Cocoa contains serotonin, a primary neurotransmitter in the body that helps build a “stress defense shield”.
Tryptophan is a natural anti-depressant amino acid contained in cocoa that transforms into stress-protective neurotransmitters that enhance relaxation and promote better sleep.
Adding Crio Brü to your daily diet will help you take advantage of the many nutrients and benefits native to the cocoa bean, enabling you to lead a healthier and happier life.
This surprised me how smooth and addictive this is. A very soft flavour like a week coffee but doesn’t need cream or sugar.
Better than expected!

This blew me away with the taste. It is fabulous. A delicate chocolate taste that isn't heavy, more like a herbal tea. So delicious I can drink it with out cream or sugar and still tastes great.

So good, I love this in place of coffee as it is less acidic.

I needed a substitute for caffeine in the morning. Also wanted to reduce my sugar intake (can't have coffee without 2 sugars!). I needed to adjust recommended ratio of grounds to water, to give me a 10 oz cup (does anyone drink a 6 oz cup of coffee/tea? Why bother?) and to suit my own taste. I still add a small dollop of cream, but less than I used to add to coffee, but no sugar needed. As well, I often add a pinch of cinnamon to the initial brewing. Over a year since my last cup of coffee, and don't miss it.

Great flavour, I'm not 100% I got this product it seems like they phased out the CAVALLA™ name. Either way it tastes great.

Tastes like hot chocolate with minus the milk. I have had no withdrawals or headaches from switching my coffee to this product. Do recommend add more than it says, makes it even a little more tastier!
My favourite flavour

Cavalla is my favourite variety of cacao to brew. It is rich and creamy tasting, even the second time I rebrew it. We have started getting the 2.2 kg bag so we have a good supply!

I had no idea what this would taste like, but I read the reviews on this website and decided to go for it. The flavour is full, but there is no added sugar or anything else. I drink it "black" in the morning and after dinner. I've shared it with my friends and colleagues and everyone loves it.
