Crio, Inc. was founded in 2010 by Dr. Eric Durtschi, an insightful entrepreneur who wanted to share his discovery of brewed cocoa beans as a healthy and delicious alternative to coffee.

Named after Venezuela’s famed Criollo bean, Crio begins with brewed cocoa beans – as originated thousands of years ago by the indigenous peoples of Central and South America – a drink that was served to kings and prized for its energizing and restorative properties. Though in more recent times it has been supplanted by coffee, as folks realize the many negatives of caffeine, this royal drink has made a magnificent comeback!

Dr. Durtschi travels the world to locate the finest cacao plantations producing the smoothest, most flavorful beans. He is also the inventor of a new roaster and grinder design that optimizes the brewing process to produce a consistently great cup of Crio. Now that’s commitment you can believe in!
