Keep in mind that I was an herbal tea designer when I ventured into the realm of designing an herbal coffee. Java was created after listening to coffee drinkers tell me that they wanted a regular flavor with less sweetness and fruitiness than my first attempt at recreating the flavor of pure coffee. Original, now called Orange, with citrus notes from orange peel, was just too different for purist coffee drinkers. It called for a rethink!
I cut down the dates and figs and took out the citrus top notes to deliver a purer coffee flavor with a deeper roasted body, leaving just a hint of sweet. Flavored with a natural coffee flavor that doesn’t have any of the caffeine or acidity of coffee, Java satisfies the coffee drinker who wants a medium roast with just a bit of sweetness. Most people find they don't need to add sugar to Java like they customarily would to regular coffee. However, if you want a purely unsweetened brew, try our dark roasted Maya French Roast.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, almonds, organic dates, natural coffee flavor, organic figs.

" Excellent flavor and a very good substitute for coffee. We drink it every day and along with this we also like the French Roast. Java has a rich and slightly bitter flavor and is just like drinking real coffee without the caffine and other bad stuff"

"I'm a 38 yr old woman with polycystic ovary syndrome & thanks to this product I've completely quit coffee for over a year. In my abundant research trying to conceive our first child with my infertility problem, I learned that researchers are finding that coffee stimulates androgen activity, & for a woman with a hormone imbalance like mine it's important to eliminate that. Tea is great, but let's face it, it's just not the same as a rich, dark, creamy cup of coffee. With this product, I don't miss coffee at all, & better yet, I can drink it all day without impacting my sleep."

"I feel this is the best of all flavors, I have been buying it for years and have never tired of the taste. I can drink it all day with no worry about caffeine or acidity messing up my digestive system not to mention not being able to sleep. I loved regular coffee, but this brew solves all problems. I occasionally mix it with other blends for some variety, but this is the cats meow. Further, best way to buy is the five pound bag for value. "
