Product Description

Cavalla French Roast
with smoky flavor notes of coconut and cinnamon
found naturally in premium cocoa beans from
Ivory Coast

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 French Roast™, made from 100% pure, perfectly roasted cocoa beans.

Cavalla French Roast™ is comparable to a French roast coffee in that the cocoa beans are roasted hotter and longer to create a distinct smoky overtone and a pleasant bite.



Making Crio Brü is easy, whether in a coffee maker or French Press. And Cavalla Dark Roast™ is incredibly delicious, especially when you add a little sweetener creamer.

Cocoa is one of nature's superfoods, delivering heart-healthy nutrients that boost health and wellness.

Here is 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. Best by Far...

    Posted by Mike on 11th Apr 2014

    Of the two "flavors" I ordered, this is the best by far. Rich, dark, smooth and smokey…I'll enjoy this cup after cup...

  2. Cocoa or Coffee

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Apr 2014

    The French Roast gives a feeling of coffee with the enjoyment of cocoa

  3. Not as Impressive as I had hoped

    Posted by Toby on 18th Mar 2014

    I don't really notice much difference from the other flavors and it certainly doesn't taste more "roasted" or darker like a French roast coffee would. Don't get me wrong, it's good, just not better than the other flavors in my opinion.

  4. It does not get any better than this!!!

    Posted by Paul on 18th Mar 2014

    The Cavalla French Roast is the deepest rich flavor. I have tried many flavors. Most disappoint. I love my chocolate dark and bitter and CFR brings it home. I make a gallon at a time to drink as needed. Hot or cold it always hits the spot.

  5. Great with Coconut oil

    Posted by Tacy Call on 12th Feb 2014

    At first I tried it with almond milk and was not that impressed, but for some reason when I drank it with coconut milk it was amazing and it almost had a slightly vanilla flavor to me. Will buy again. Thanks!

  6. Excellent addition!

    Posted by Michelle C on 10th Feb 2014

    I make a french press pot of Reg. Cavallia, and then for the second pot, I add two scoops of the French Roast Cavallia - makes it just as rich as the first batch! A real nice deep roast! Also - we drink it straight - Love it! No bitterness just perfect!

  7. Close to perfect!

    Posted by Joe on 22nd Jan 2014

    Cavalla French Roast is our favorite. I'm not sure what's in it, but it has just the right mix of cocoa with something that makes it perfect to sip and enjoy next the fire. I prefer mine straight out of the press, others in our family mix in a little cream, either way, it's a family favorite!

  8. THE best bru!

    Posted by Larry on 24th Oct 2013

    We've tried several blends - the CFR is my favorite top 2. Excellent flavor and you can detect the slight hint of coconut & cinnamon.

  9. The best of both worlds - brewed cocoa

    Posted by Carolyn on 19th Oct 2013

    Coffee is too strong for me - unless I add a pint of cream or so. Hot chocolate is great...now and then. Brewed cocoa is the perfect middle ground, and Cavalla French Roast from Cio Bru is excellent.

  10. Yummy Yummy Brio

    Posted by Jana on 1st Oct 2013

    This is fantastic! Love it and it is my absolute favorite!!!!!!!!!!!
