Product Description

with flavor notes of caramel and cherry 
and nutty finish found naturally in the cocoa bean

Flowing serenely into to the Caribbean Sea, Lake Maracaibo is encircled by the rarest, heritage cocoa trees from which Venezuelan growers produce the world’s most sought after Criollo and Carenero cocoa beans prized for their superb, rich flavors. This Crio Brü is a luxurious, full-bodied brewed cocoa with sweet flavor notes of vanilla and cherry and a caramelized nutty finish.


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.

  1. Life Saver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2021

    I suffer from severe chronic migraines. A friend mentioned to me that ground cocoa beans as a drink might help, as she had read it acted as a vascular dilator. I thought it was worth a try, and ordered the French press and a couple of flavours.
    The day it arrived was a severe migraine day. I was having difficulty walking and talking, but I brewed up a mug of Crio Bru, and started to sip. Within ten minutes, the awful pounding that makes moving so difficult was subsiding. I drank another mug, and it got even better. I want to be clear- the pain doesn’t go away, but the POUNDING does. That’s a game changer. It’s the pounding that keeps you from being able to move, that makes you feel like throwing up all the time.
    I drink this every day now. Here’s the best thing- it tastes great! Lovely dark chocolate that is no hardship to sip, rather it is a pleasure. Sometimes I add a splash of caramel sauce or creamer. I like it sweet, so some sort of sweetener is always in it as well. I cannot say enough good things about this product. It’s good enough that I would buy it even if it didn’t help my migraines, but as it is, I’ll never be without now.

    What is not to love about these flavours. I have been a big fan of Crio Bru and enjoys al their cocoa drinks but Maracaibo is my favorite. It is like dessert in a cup for me.
    I have a lot of allergies and I am so glad Crio Bru exists - it is the one hot drink that I can enjoy without worry of an allergic reactions. And Maracaibo is the drink I save for special times.

  3. Good Every Day! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2017

    I have been drinking Maricaibo for a couple of years for breakfast and using grounds in a shake at night. It tastes good every time. Drinking a shake with the pulverized grounds that are loaded with antioxidants makes me feel like Mayan royalty. The taste is unrivalled.

  5. so very happy to have found Crio Bru 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2015

    This amazing product has replaced coffee for me. I was one of those unfortunate people that woke up early with headaches because of coffee caffeine withdrawal. I was heartbroken when I realized I couldn't have coffee in the morning anymore. Then I found this amazing product. Would never go back to coffee, Crio Bru is so much better. Thank you

    Reminds me of warm childhood hot chocolate without the sugar. Comforting and delicious.

  7. 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!

  8. very aromatic and tasty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2012

    I used to drink Choffy but this is, by far, more rich and flavourful. I shared it with several of my friends and they couldn't believe it tasted so good.
