A friend in Oregon just sent me a "business idea". He claims a new product called choffy is the new coffee replacement health drink. It's roasted cacao.
As I know of two NL members (Andrew and Doug) who are growing cacao and clearly they are not the only two people growing it here, I figured this was worth mentioning.
From their web site:
Choffy is 100% premium cacao (cocoa beans). Cacao is referred to as a superfood for its fantastic health benefits! For example, there are more antioxidants in an 8oz. cup of Choffy than almost two servings of blueberries. How’s that for stamping out free-radicals!
What's it cost? $16.50 for a 12oz. bag. He characterized it as expensive but "probably my favorite winter drink".
