Rising on the flanks of equatorial volcanoes, the Coca River winds through an emerald paradise in southern Ecuador until it feeds into the mighty Amazon. A village close to the Coca River, in a valley called Vilcabamba, is famous for the longevity of its people, many living more than a century. Nurtured in the black soil of this valley and the rich humidity of the cloud-covered rainforest, the Ecuadorian cacao bean produces the chocolatiest Crio Brü. This smooth, sweet and nourishing drink is accented by a perfumed floral scent and lovely floral tones, including a dominant green banana note, blueberries and jasmine.

Absolutely love this product sweetened with maple syrup. Took a little time but noticing the subtle rise and substantial sustain from the Theobromine is phenomenal.

Rich, well-balanced, versatile. Great on its own, or brewed with coffee. Lovely stuff.

I just bought a big selection of crios but so far, this is the only variety I've tried. It smells wonderful, very rich. The taste is interesting, different, not really like your typical hot cocoa--it's more "grown up". Good stuff, I'm happy.

i just ordered the Coca River. I'm very pleased with this selection and I can definitely taste the hint of green bananas. Currently the French Roast is my favorite but i enjoy them all equally. I've never experienced a feeling of energy from drinking this which is fine by me as I enjoy mainly after dinner. I will continue to buy this product

I have tried most of the Crio Bru flavors and Coca River is the best one. They all are very good, but Coca River has a very rich chocolatey flavor that warms me up on cold mornings. I've completely gone away from coffee and rarely go a morning without my Crio Bru!

I have enjoyed every flavor I ordered. The differences are subtle but the Cocoa River delivers a richness I love ♥ So this is the one I reorder every time!

I think Coca River has the best chocolate flavor of all the choices. I do drink a few of the others but I always come back to this one. It's very satisfying.

Let me start by saying that I love coffee. I decided to give up caffeine before getting pregnant and didn't want the chemicals in decaf but still needed something hot to drink to start my day. Crio Bru saved the day! I feel that it gives me a little bit of a boost, but never the jitters I would get with coffee.
I've tried a couple of flavors and this is by far the best -- I love the chocolate flavor with a hint of banana. I do add some sugar and milk to mine, but I always did that with coffee anyway. I brew mine in a one-cup coffee maker using slightly less than 2 teaspoons (otherwise it's more than the coffee maker can handle).

This is my favorite Crio Bru! If you like dark chocolate then this one is for you! The Cocoa River has the darkest chocolate flavor out of the other flavors I've tried. I let mine steep for about 20-25 minutes so the chocolate flavor really develops. Then I just stick it in the microwave for about 20 seconds to get it hot again. Worth the extra wait!

So good to wake up to have a cup of Crio Bru in the morning with my husband. This blend needs some sweetening it does have a little bitter taste with out it. Since I am no longer drinking coffee Crio Bru is the answer.
