Cacao Chicory Brew

Anyone else struggle with caffeine intake? 


  1. If caffeine gives you a headache... Cacao is almost caffeine-free. It contains theobromine instead.
  2. Theobromine gives you a gentle energy boost.
  3. Chicory adds boldness.

Prep time: 15 mins

What you'll need:

  • 5 tablespoons @teocacaotribe cacao grounds⁠
  • 1.5 cup hot water
  • 2 teaspoons instant chicory (chicoree_leroux)⁠
  • 2-3 teaspoons maple syrup⁠
  • splash of vanilla⁠
  • Ice⁠
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut cream/milk (from a can). Milk of choice can be substituted, but full fat coconut milk adds a nice richness and creaminess. 


1. To a french press, add cacao grounds and hot water.

2. Stir to combine, place french press lid on and press the plunger down only to water level. (For cold brew: Let sit at room temperature for 24 hours before fully pressing the plunger down.) 

3. Add chicory to cup and hot water & stir.

4. Add 1/2 cup of cacao brew with remaining ingredients.⁠


Enjoy your caffeine-free drink & Tag @teocacaotribe to show-off your creation!
