You’ve heard of brewing coffee before, but what about chocolate?

Crio Bru is different than anything I’ve heard of before. It is a new a chocolaty hot drink that is made from cocoa beans and brewed like coffee.

It creates natural energy that comes from theobromine. The winners will get a French Press to make it in, here’s how:

  1. Brew it in the French press for 10-12 minutes. Although Crio Brü can be brewed effectively in as little as 5 minutes, you’ll find it will be much more full-bodied when brewed for 10-12.
  2. Before drinking, try to pick out the aromatic notes in the Crio – cinnamon, berries, dark spice, etc.
  3. Add a small amount of creamer. Less than 20% of coffee ordered at Starbuck’s is ordered black. A dollop of Coffee-mate’s French Vanilla or Belgian Chocolate Toffee, or an addition of almond milk or any other traditional coffee creamer will bring out the chocolaty notes.
  4. Add a tiny dash of cinnamon to Cavalla before or after brewing.

Now the Cavalla flavor I tried was quite bitter, and seemed to remind me more of coffee, which isn’t my thing, but others may like it.

The Caramel flavor I tried was much better, and very sweet which is how I like my chocolate!

Here’s what is in the gift baskets the 3 winners each get:

· A 12 oz. bag of Hazelnut Crio Cocoa.
· An 8 oz. bag of rare and delicious Crio Beans.
· A 12 oz. bag of Cavalla Crio Brü brewed cocoa, with hints of dark spice, coconut and cinnamon, made from 100% cocoa beans.
· A top-of-the-line 16 oz. Bodum ’Make Taste Not Waste’ French Press.
· A soft, little, cuddly, velvety teddy bear!
