I have my own recipe for hot cocoa that is quite nice, but this item is amazing. I was a little hesitant to serve it, as it has a spice blend that my partner and her friends don't normally care for. I couldn't get more than one cup of it, however. They took it all! I'll be keeping it on my standard order from here on in. It's so very good, without being too rich or overwhelming, and very well balanced, flavor wise. Absolutely worth it.
This drinking mix is great because you only need water, a touch of milk - oat milk for me - and you add your own sweetener, so you control the calories and carbs. It didn't taste fake and gummy like some popular cocoa mixes. Definitely my new go to!
I always love to have a nice cup of chocolate from Haiti and always find a way to have some at home, but so far I only had the ones shaped like a ball or square that takes long to prepare. Caribbrew hot chocolate is very easy to prepare because it it powdered, the taste is perfect. I am so happy I decided to get it when I saw the ad on FB. I will definitely get more and recommend it to my family and friends!
I am really enjoy my hot chocolate and my coffee every morning. I love the chocolate taste it reminds me of Haiti and the coffee was hummm. I hope one day we have opportunities to offer more from Haiti. Like cassavas and peanut butter. Just saying. I will definitely recommend Caribbrew to my friends and family.
When I first heard about Caribbrew on FB, I was immediately surprised. First, I was very proud to see this small company owned and operated by a young, female, entrepreneur. Secondly... It's HAITIAN HOT CHOCOLATE! The thought of drinking a thick cup of hot cocoa from Haiti would be an experience I wanted to savor in the moment now when I did as a child.
My very first memory of drinking hot chocolate was in 1975, "La Montagne". I was about five years old when my mom went on a spiritual expedition at the foothills of a mountain in Haiti for prayer and fasting. We went with my brother and a fairly large group of people going to this high altitude location to fast, pray, seeking communion with The Almighty. One early morning, around 5:30am, I remembered my mom making this hot chocolate drink from an aluminum sauce pan for me and my brother. I remembered seeing her stirring this molting chocolate liquid with a look of peace and contentment on her face. I remembered the smell of the chocolate wafting through the air mixing with the tranquil coolness and fresh morning dew from the crisp mountain air. This was a moment of peace, gratitude and simplicity for me. I somehow felt a small connection with my mom, God and nature. This was one of the most significantly momentous experiences of my life. It felt like a spiritual rite of passage. My mom poured the warm viscous liquid into my cup. She then gave my brother and I two slices of warm, soft, fresh Haitian bread, each. We could not wait to have this blessed breakfast. My younger brother even mentioned about how he dreamt all night about having this precise moment. We took our first bite of the bread and engaged in our first sip. The sweet savor of the hot chocolate in harmony with the rich warm, palpable flavor of the bread felt like a piece of heaven in my stomach and in my soul. I had not felt that experience on such an intense and profound depth since.
I had made my first cup of the Caribbrew hot chocolate, Monday, January 25th, 2021. The aroma of this liquid delight immediately transported me to my childhood at "La Montagne". I felt an instantaneous rush of memories, gratitude and humility that took over my emotional sensibilities. I knew I had conjured the experience of "La Montagne" in my soul. My first taste of this hot chocolate... I almost cried. I knew then and there, Haiti is inside of me. Haiti is with me. Haiti is me.
Thank you Caribbrew for bringing me back full circle to my memories of God and home.
