Vanilla Nut was the first Teeccino flavor I ever created. I wanted to feature vanilla beans from Mexico where I was working to preserve rainforests.
Vanilla, the only orchid used in food, has become a favorite the world over due to its unparalleled fragrance and complex, heady flavor. Vanilla is indigenous to Central America where it was discovered by the native people centuries before the Spanish arrived. The Aztec Emperor, Montezuma, was said to be drinking an elixir for longevity made from cacao, vanilla and honey when the conquistadors were ushered in for an audience.
Now this may seem like trivia, but do you know that each vanilla bean has to be handled hundreds of times during its 6 month curing process? Doesn’t that bring home the wonder of nature and the cleverness of humans?
It is no surprise to me that Vanilla Nut has always been our best selling Mediterranean flavor. Drink it knowing that you are helping indigenous communities find sustainable livelihoods that preserve rainforests.

"I just recently tried this procuct for the first time. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical. Could an herbal "coffee" really taste as good as or even taste like real coffee? Yes! The aroma of the vanilla nut was the first thing I noticed, the next was how creamy it looked. I usually take a lot of cream and sugar in my coffee, but with this I only used a little of both. It was delicious. It was creamy, aromatic, smooth, it was like drinking one of those really expensive coffee house drinks without all of the calories and guilt. I will definetly recommend this to anyone and will be sure to order more for myself!"

"I would love to be able to drink coffee in the afternoon and evening but I am too sensitive to caffeine. I tried the Vanilla Nut Herbal Coffee trial size packet and feel in love. It tasted like coffee and I had no adverse effect to it that night. I plan to buy more.
Thanks for an alternative to coffee."

"I received a sample of the vanilla nut herbal coffee in the mail and was a little reluctant to try it because I was afraid it would be too much of a coffee "wanna-be." I brewed a cup and was really impressed at the first taste! I normally like to sweeten my coffee (although not my tea), and I didn't need to add anything to this. The vanilla flavor was very comforting and tasted great!"
