Brew Choc, the healthy coffee alternative
Brew Choc, the healthy coffee alternative
Brewed chocolate is the latest buzz in the health world! It is starting to take Hollywood by storm. Marie Claire, Food Network Mag and Life & Style magazine are all mentioning the buzz, including that celebs like Carmen Electra are drinking brewed chocolate, not only for its fat burning properties but for its antioxidants and minerals
Brew Choc is the great tasting coffee alternative is made from 100%, perfectly roasted cocoa beans. Nothing more, nothing less. Zero sugar, zero additives, zero gluten, zero dairy, low food miles, sustainable healthy brewing chocolate. The single origin beans have only come a short distance to Australia from premium cocoa growers in the Solomon Islands, they are then are craft roasted and milled to perfection in our roastery in Perth, giving you a superior product with sky-high antioxidants, abundant minerals and healthy energy.
Years ago when I first discovered brewing chocolate on Twitter, purely by accident, I was fascinated enough to bring it into Australia. That brand is Crio Bru. And delicious it is. But I think we have something better here. If you look at the footprint of Crio Bru versus the footprint of Brew Choc, that alone should have you reaching for a packet or two. It always bothered me that the cacao beans were shipped from country of origin to midwest USA for processing, then packaged and trucked to the coastal USA then spent up to 8 weeks on a ship stopping at every port along the way before they reached us here in Australia. They could never be that fresh, though I have to mention that cacao beans only have a best before date as opposed to a use by date. (Two very different things.)
Our beans are grown and fermented by a purely organic farm in the Solomon Islands. (Their organic certification is pending and will appear on the packaging soon.) They also supply the very French Valrhona chocolate company. This in and of itself is a huge deal for us. It means we are using the very best tasting beans. We did try many beans from the region and even some from further afield...(tough gig) and we are in love with the caramel vanilla notes of this beautiful chocolate.
We wanted to create an amazing brewing chocolate that you could rely on favour wise. We are confident that this is what we have done. We are planning on a subscription plan next year as we organise our branding more, and get all of our certifications in place. In the meantime, you can order from my store and see what all the buzz is about! Plus you get a free ebook of recipes when you place an order for Brew Choc!
Aside from being totally delicious and satiating your chocolate cravings (yes!!) with about 20 calories in a whole mug – brewed cocoa has a list of benefits that you can’t miss out on:
- boost your immune system with antioxidants
- increase energy naturally with theobromine (not caffeine!)
- curb your appetite to help lose weight
- support your heart, brain and bones with magnesium
- maintain healthy blood sugar levels with chromium and zinc
- feel better, reduce stress, even sleep better: an endorphin or “bliss chemical” called anandamide is produced by our body after exercise that makes us feel great has only been found in one plant – cacao!
It's time to get addicted to feeling great!
