Coffee Substitute Review –
My Reviews Of The Top 4 Herbal Coffees
Just recently, I decided to stop drinking caffeinated beverages for health reasons. As I spoke to some of my friends about this, they informed me that they were doing the same. I asked them for recommendations on some caffeine free drinks I can try, and they gave me a few suggestions. I didn’t know who to trust, so I tried them all. Here’s what I found…
Ayurvedic Roast offered a very similar experience to what I had when I still drank real coffee. The dark color was lush and the strong aroma filled the room. When I drank it, it tasted a lot like real coffee, only a little bit smoother. This may be the result of the Ashwagandha, Shatavari and Brahmi herbs that are added to the mixture. Not only do these help the taste, but they also offer some medicinal benefits. As I was drinking my Ayurvedic Roast coffee, I decided to read the bag it came in. It turns out this stuff is organic too!
Pero was a huge disappointment for me. I have heard many people talk about how it is their favorite herbal coffee and how they can’t tell the difference between it and real coffee, but I sure could. As soon as I opened the container, I knew I wasn’t going to like this product. There was some sort of weird smell that I can’t even describe. When I mixed it with hot water, it went away, but my experience was ruined already. The coffee was palatable, but I wouldn’t rush back to the store to buy anymore – there are lots of other great products out there.
Cafix was a little bit of a surprise to me. When I originally got it, I thought for sure it would be my least favorite. It doesn’t come in any flavours, just original blend. When I poured the hot water over it, though, I immediately smelt an aroma that made me reminisce of the days when I could drink real, black coffee. When I took my first sip, it was rich and smooth. While you can still tell that it’s not real coffee, it offers a very similar experience.
Teeccino, which is billed as, “Americas Favorite Coffee Alternative” was actually one of my least favorite herbal coffees. I tried the French Roast, the Vanilla Nut and the Chocolate Mint flavours. I was a little disappointed by the French Roast coffee, as it didn’t really taste like coffee at all. The Vanilla Nut and Chocolate Mint flavours were a little better, but they had a little bit of a chemically aftertaste, especially when they started to cool down. Out of the four coffees I reviewed, Teeccino was my least favorite.
Out of the four coffees I tasted, the Ayurvedic roast was my favorite. The Teeccino came close, but when it came to offering an experience that was similar to the real coffee drinking experience, the Ayurvedic roast herbal coffee couldn’t be beat.
