Coffee for John 2
Bought this for my husband and he likes this one the best.
Tastes great. If you can't have coffee, this is the best. Great price. Super quick secure shipping. What would we do without Thrive.
I can no longer drink coffee but Teeccino is a great substitute and a great price.
A life saver
I have interstitial cystitis and cannot have regular coffee. All of my life I have been a coffee fiend. I thought I could never live without coffee but Teeccino is as good a substitute as I could find.
Good, but I wouldn't give up my French Roast coffee for it
Some marketing agent evidently thought that if they included "coffee alternative" in the name, it would catch folks' attention. It didn't taste like coffee, and it didn't taste French roasted.
However, on it's own merits, this is a good product! The first smell on opening the bag is chocolate--mmmm! The taste is different from the smell; decidedly less cocoa-like and more grain-like. I liked the taste, but it just wasn't what my taste buds had been hyped for. I'd probably buy it again, but I'd much rather have its sister product, the mocha flavor. Now that's something to be excited about!
I wasn't expecting much from this coffee alternative. Was I surprised! It is definitely NOT coffee, but it tastes better than decaf coffee. I seem to taste a hint of chocolate, but it is not labeled as such. Maybe my taste buds are playing tricks.
This is a definite buy.
Best alternative out there
While this does not taste exactly like coffee I was very happily surprised at just how close it comes. I still have a cup of coffee occasionally but I drink this almost daily. I have discovered that you need very little of this. The more you use the less like coffee it tastes. When it is strong it leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. It took me a little while to figure this out as I like coffee very strong. The up side is using less makes this last a lot longer than a bag of coffee. So experiment a little with the strength but definitely give this a try! If you are trying to break the coffee habit this gives you a two week plan to ween off coffee without the headache.
Strong carob flavor
So this is a coffee like drink if you're giving up coffee and want a natural herbal alternative. But when you drink it, it only tastes like coffee for a few moments, then you get a huge carob flavor that's kind of strong. It won't remind you of a strong French roast, but for what it is, I guess it's ok. It does look like coffee but the taste is very different and may not take away your coffee craving.

I can't believe it's real coffee taste!
When the dietician said I needed to give up caffeine, I was very crumpy! It wasn't pop I would miss, but coffee. He assured me the benefits would outweigh the loss.
The dietician suggested Teeccino's French Roast. He told me the best place to order is Thrive Market online. He also told me by giving up caffeine, I would sleep better at night and therefore feel so much better overall.
I ordered a bag from Thrive, although I was very skeptical. After three days of drinking this coffee alternative, my headache began to go away and I did sleep better. I'm happy I stuck it out and am now caffeine free!

Not exactly coffee
I have been a coffee drinker for ages and switching to a coffee alternative hasn't been easy. The chickory takes over a the taste of this stuff and leaves an after taste.
It is a nice rich roast, but it isn't "coffee." I definitely plan to keep drinking this and hope to get used to the taste!

This is a great coffee alternative. It is organic and is caffeine free so you don't have to drink decaf or sacrifice flavor for health. It tastes great and is rich and full flavored. While it isn't coffee in realty, it does have natural coffee flavor and offers the flavor I'm looking for without any of the jitters or crashes of coffee. It is a great way to take a break during the day.
