For thousands of years, Central and South American civilizations prepared a chocolaty drink called ka’kao – the drink of the Gods. Served to kings in golden cups, this cacao beverage was prized for its energizing and restorative properties. It was passed down from generation to generation until Cortes landed in the new world and the tradition was lost.
Enter Crio Bru. Founded in 2010 by renowned chocolatier Eric Durtschi, Crio Bru has crafted this ancient tradition into delicious natural/organic brewed cacao beverages. Driven by our love of cacao, Crio Bru exists to share the magic of cacao beverages, boost wellness, and care for the people and plantations that grow our product.
Crio Bru is based in Santa Barbara, CA.
