Cavalla™ Ivory Coast Medium.


Product Description

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.

    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!

  2. My favourite flavour 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2016

    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.

  7. Still loving it after all these years! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2014

    Cavalla and Coca River are my favourites. I have been using Crio Bru for years now. I used to order it from the U.S. site before it became available in Canada.
    I still look forward to my nightly pot. Love love love...

  8. A wonderful substitute for my second (and third) coffee of the day 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2013

    I purchased Crio Bru on recommendation from a friend. I'm a self-professed chocolate addict and I enjoy several coffees during the day. However, these extra coffees have been contributing to digestive upset, lack of focus (monkey mind) and delayed sleep! Crio Bru gives me a satisfying feel like a hot cup of freshly-roasted coffee does. The chocolate scent is extremely pleasing. It's not sweet like a hot chocolate. I'm very glad to have Crio Bru as part of my daily routine!

  9. Delicious 5 Star Review
