  1. Absolutely delicious!

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Aug 2017

    I love the flavour of this one. It's perfect as a soothing after-dinner or mid-morning drink...and extra delicious with a dash of vanilla added!

  2. try this..

    an excellent product , very versatile. I like it sprinkled over fruit and cereal for breakfast, but mostly use it combined with dried fruit and nuts etc to make my own energy bars, to help me over my "energy flat spots" during the day/long walks/rides. Makes these snacks richer and more satisfying. This is good food...

  3. Has to be one of my favourites. Perfect all-rounder for hot and cold drinks, making and baking.

    I would like to thank Crio Brü Australia for introducing me to this flavour when it was included in the sample pack I purchased online from their site.

    Before I get into my review, here are the usual basics.

    Disclaimer:

    I bought this product with my own money, I am not being paid to make this review, nor am I deliberately singling this product or company out. I’m just trying to give an open and honest review on items I use in my household.

    Please note: My review is based solely on Crio Brü’s Maracaibo blend. This is not a review of Crio Brü themselves or any other products, services or business they may offer.

    Okay, so let’s get to it!

    So what exactly is Crio Brü Maracaibo all about? Well, for those who haven’t followed my love affair with Crio Brü’s flavours on my Facebook page, it is a yet another delicious flavour blend made by Crio Brü from cacao beans. It is a coffee substitute and made in a similar manner – cacao beans dried in the sun, then roasted, milled and packed either as is, or with spice blends or similar. Maracaibo isn’t a blend, it’s 100% cacao beans and, according to the packet, is free of fat, gluten, sodium and sugar. Going on the ingredients I would also suggest it is dairy free and Vegan friendly.

    There are other Crio Brü flavours and I am slowly making my way through them all to try and share reviews of. But this review is all about the Maracaibo flavour. If you would like to learn more about Crio Brü and what they do, please visit their site here.

    My Review:

    Maracaibo has to be one of my favourite Crio Brü flavours so far. It is one of the mid-range to stronger flavours too so, to me, is a perfect all-rounder. Though, I must say I do prefer it as a hot drink, but its strong - but not over-powering - taste means it works well in baking and ice drinks as well as hot beverages. So, yes, good for bliss balls and brownies!

    Although there is a strong ‘I can’t believe this isn’t coffee’ flavour to Maracaibo, I do have to say it is still obviously a hot chocolate. If you get the bitterness juuuuust right though, it makes a great morning coffee substitute - without all the nasty after effects I suffer from when drinking coffee. Meaning, this flavour can easily go without sugar if desired, but I still need some milk (cocoquench) in it to take the edge off the bitterness. The more sugar you add to this one, the more chocolatey it becomes.

    Would I recommend this product to others?

    Yes I would. I would warn it has the stronger flavour than others… but it makes it a good all-rounder and so a perfect everyday use Crio Brü.

    Would I buy this product for myself?

    Been there, done that. Made sure I got one of the big 680g bag to ensure I had enough to last me for all I wanted to use it for. Nailed it. Though do need to buy myself some more after only getting it a few months back. ;-)

    In summary - has to be one of my favourites. Perfect all-rounder for hot and cold drinks, making and baking.

  4. My other fave

    Posted by Tenina on 26th Nov 2016

    I do love all the Crio Bru flavours, but Maracaibo is smoother and more refined on the palate. I love using it in desserts. Just straight up delicious.

  5. Deliciously satisfying

    Posted by Diane on 14th Nov 2016

    Totally in love with this product.
    Can't wait to try some of the other blends, especially if they are as good as this one.

  6. Nice subtle blend

    Posted by Tracy on 3rd Nov 2016

    I enjoy Maracaibo as my "go to" blend, it's not heavy on flavour, just a nice, subtle chocolate taste. Very tasty.

  7. Lovely smooth blend

    Posted by Elizabeth on 4th Mar 2016

    My first cup of this blend was a delight and each subsequent cup firmly places it among my favourites.

    It is lovely and rich with a creamy finish and a cup of Maracaibo is a great way to start the day.

  8. Very satisfying

    Posted by Bronwen on 26th Aug 2015

    I've tried 5 different flavours of crio to date and this one is strangely filling! Even though it has hardly any calories you feel full after drinking it. Good flavour too.

  9. Flavour notes of caramel and cherry!

    Posted by Georgia on 20th Apr 2015

    I love this Maracaibo Crio Bru and always make sure I have some made up in the fridge for a quick pick me up cuppa, just add some rice milk, heat up and YUM ... it's always so delicious. So smooth.

  10. A favourite

    Posted by Julie on 29th Sep 2014

    From opening the pack, inhaling the beautiful aroma to enjoying the rich chocolatey flavour of Maracaibo, this has become a firm favourite!

  11. I'm not a fan

    Posted by Marg on 26th May 2014

    This was a disappointment. I expected a sweeter taste with a hint of caramel but didn't get either. It taste quite ordinary and am sorry I bought it.

  12. smooth & caramel-ly flavour

    Posted by Kate on 31st Mar 2014

    Maracaibo is amazing - smooth and velvety taste, hints of caramel and cherry but definitely not too sweet. I enjoy mine with hot frothed milk, latte style. One a day definitely isnt enough!

  13. Lovely flavour and left wanting more

    Posted by Natalie on 8th Mar 2014

    Maracaibo has a delicious sweeter flavour and leaves you wanting another cup. Very easy to make, although I used my thermomix and then poured into my coffee plunger afterwards to remove the remnants of beans in it. Can see myself enjoying some nice hot cocoas over winter evenings. Really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone.

  14. Superb flavour

    Posted by Jenny on 13th Dec 2013

    Maracaibo is such a rich full flavoured brew that I think it might be my new favourite.
    Thanks so much.

  15. Maracaibo- my favourite

    Posted by Gayna on 25th Nov 2013

    Since giving up coffee I have found and love Maracaibo, I pop it in my espresso machine just as if it were a coffee, Maracaibo has such a luxurious taste that I no longer even think about coffee. Maracaibo gives me great energy and I feel great.
