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.

I absolutely LOVE this stuff!! I have been a coffee & cocoa lover since I was a kid (many moons ago!) I saw this on Shark Tank & had to try it. I was hooked on the very first pot I made....kind of a mild chai flavor (& I am not a chai person) mixed into a mild coffee flavor that made me keep going back for more!! The pot was gone before I knew it. Crio Bru tastes great, makes you feel good, and is my new guilty pleasure. I love it hot or on ice, with or without additions. I am back again to place another order. (By the way, the nibs make a great little snack, too!!)

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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

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.
