OP Favorite: the Cacao-Coffee Blend

Posted by Darren Hartford on

We all love a little chocolate in our coffee every once in a while, but the added sugar? Not so much. Luckily, the Oliver Pluff warehouse is never in short supply of our favorite Cacao Shell Tea, which gives us the opportunity to experiment with different flavors and combinations for our beverages. 

And so the cacao-coffee blend was born! Seeking a little extra depth to our daily coffee, we tested a few coffee-to-cacao ratios before getting it just the way we like it. For a little extra creaminess, we love a splash of unsweetened almond milk or creamer of your choice.

Cacao-Coffee Blend Recipe


2½ tablespoons whole coffee beans

1 teaspoon cacao shell tea

    Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Place coffee beans into grinder and pulse until roughly ground. add cacao shell tea and pulse briefly to mix.

    Place coffee and cacao blend into french press and pour boiling water over contents slowly, then stir. Let steep for 8 minutes and enjoy.
