When we first heard of a beverage made from cacao that brews like coffee, we immediately thought “coffee replacement” that only non-coffee imbibers could love.

This is not at all like hot chocolate; it looks like coffee and tastes more like coffee than hot chocolate. Their health claims are one thing, but at Caputo’s, we’re into flavor. And the range of flavors is astounding. It is no surprise that Crio is now a smashing success outside of Utah and even outside of the U.S.
