    Anyone else drink 100% raw cacao like coffee?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    So I... may be somewhat odd... but I use the hot water attachment on the office coffee pot to make my own warm drink. I put a tbsp or three of 100% raw cacao powder into my coffee travel mug and fill it with hot water. It makes for an awesome little drink.

    I don't sweeten or add anything else, just the lovely bitter bite of raw cacao. Anyone else a bit off like me?

    I haven't tried it yet but it sounds good.
    I did get cacao powder and have been adding it to my morning smoothie (RS & probiotic) and it's delicious!
    I'm going to try your drink
    Thx!

    I like it, you have to drink it fairly quick though as it will settle pretty fast, or agitate/stir it frequently. It looks like you are drinking some strange blood-coffee mix or Wonka's river ha!

    I put 100% cacoa IN my coffee, and it is great! I understand that you can grind cacoa nibs in a little coffee grinder and make a hot drink from that - unsure why it works better than the powder but apparently it does. Or so I've heard. I need to try that

    I put some gelatin in with my raw cocoa and hot water. It's pretty tasty.

    I've been adding cacao powder to my coffee lately -- on top of either bullet proof or regular coffee with heavy cream. I may have to try your hot water recipe.

    I tried a cup this afternoon and added some gelatin & co.
    I remember TQP posted delicious looking gelatin cocoa so I'm going to look for her recipe

    When I grind up my coffee beans I usually throw a couple of cacao beans in there too. It doesn't change the flavor much, but I figure it's a good way to get some extra antioxidants.
