Why drink cacao instead of coffee in the morning?

By Jerry Toth

Short Answer #1: It’s much healthier, the energy lasts longer, and there’s no crash—thanks to the power of theobromine, which is caffeine’s steadier and more user-friendly cousin. If you want to quickly learn how and why cacao is so good for you, here's a quick primer.

Short Answer #2: There's no rule that says you have to choose one over the other. If you don't want to give up coffee, but you do want the added benefits of cacao, then drink both. You’ll probably spend the day feeling like Superman (or Wonder Woman).

Where to find it? For people who are already committed to the power of cacao, or who are looking to get involved, take a look at T.cacao. It is organic, single origin 100% cacao powder sourced from Heirloom Nacional cacao trees in Piedra de Plata, produced by To'ak. Now available for purchase on Amazon or directly through To'ak.
