Product Review: Choffy

How would you like a way to still enjoy your morning coffee but WITHOUT the coffee?


It's a weird thought, right? Now what if you could replace your coffee with chocolate, but have it actually be healthy for you?

There are a couple great things about Choffy. First, Choffy is just ground, roasted cacao beans that, when brewed, tastes almost identical to coffee with a little chocolate aftertaste. You actually brew Choffy in a French Press, and it's quick and easy to do!

Choffy contains theobromine, a natural stimulant that does not affect the nervous system (like caffeine would!). Because of this, you can have natural energy without crashing! Great!

Choffy also contains more antioxidants than blueberries and contains the bliss chemicals anandamide and PEA, which make you feel focused, alert, and happy. With only 20 calories per serving and no sugars or chemicals, this is a make you happy drink!

Naturally, I was intrigued, so Choffy sent me a little sample packet to try!


I put my Choffy in my French Press and got to brewing. It only took five minutes to brew, so it's definitely quick and easy to make in the morning. 


Next I poured the Choffy into a mug and gave it a sip. Not too bad. I expected it to taste more like hot chocolate, and I was really surprised when it tasted almost identical to coffee. Stir in some almond milk and a little sugar and you have a coffee wannabe. This is a great substitution for any coffee lover! 


Now, if you know me, you'll know I don't drink straight up coffee. I like my coffee to be mixed in with loads of sugar and chocolate and Starbucks-y type things. So, naturally, I added some vegan hot chocolate mix, almond milk, Soyatoo whipped cream, and Smuckers marshmallow topping. It was delicious! 

The Daisy Rating
3.5/5 daisies

Overall: Tastes identical to coffee with a hint of chocolate flavor. The grounds smell AMAZING and chocolate-y. Would be good to use in place of coffee. Contains no sugars or chemicals, and contains antioxidants and naturally occurring "feel-good" chemicals, so it's much better for you and delivers a natural alternative to caffeine. 

How do you like to drink your coffee? What do you think about brewed chocolate, like Choffy?
Much love,
