It wasn’t until I discovered ramon seeds from Central American rainforests that the dream of a dark roasted, unsweetened herbal coffee with enough body to carry coffee-like depth and intensity came into focus. The Maya drank a brewed beverage of roasted ramon seeds for all kinds of health reasons. Please recall that this was prior to the coffee tree making its way across the Atlantic.
If you like your coffee dark roasted without any competing flavor notes or sweetness,French Roast was created for you. In a taste test of Teeccino’s regular flavors, Original, Java, and French Roast, those coffee drinkers who like pure coffee flavor preferred dark roasted French Roast. Those who like their coffee sweeter with a lighter roast chose Original. Those who want a medium roast with just a bit of sweetness preferred Java.
Now between all three flavors, those who say “give me regular” can find their personal preference and satisfaction!

"I love the Maya French Roast. I'm trying to limit my caffeine intake nowadays, and I love Teeccino's blend of traditional, natural coffee adulterants, if you will (chicory a la France, barley a la Italy), but I can't do the Teeccino Mediterranean varieties since I'm supposed to avoid almonds due to a minor allergy. Enter ramon nuts from Central America, something new to me. I feel good about fueling some business for the ramon nut harvesters, AND obviously when roasted and mixed with the chicory and barley, they make for a tasty brew that is just a dead ringer for conventional coffee! This is such a great way to get your coffee fix without getting the jitters and the crashes. Keep up the great work!"

"Had to lay off of caffeine for health reasons. Enjoy a strong dark roast coffee with light cream. This one is my favorite! I tried the Java and it was a little sweet for my taste. I am back ot enjoying my morning, afternoon, and after dinner coffee ritual. Happy...happy! "

"When I first tried it I thought I detected a cardboard taste but as I drank it, it got better and better.
Now I think I taste a hint of cocoa and can smell a hint of fruit. Makes the whole house smell good! I could get addicted to this but with no guilt!"

Carob pods are highly nutritious and contain a variety of antioxidants known as flavonoids. Carob shares flavonoids in common with tea that have been studied to be highly effective in humans for protecting cells against free radical damage.
Roasted barley is a popular coffee alternative in Italy where it is known as "Caffe d'orzo". Every coffee bar in Italy serves orzo brewed like cappuccinos or coffee!
Roasted chicory root is the popular coffee alternative in France. French coffee is famous for its smooth, less acidic flavor because approximately 30% of French coffee is roasted chicory root. Another variety of chicory produces endive...
Teeccino's Maya flavors feature roasted ramon seeds, a nutrient-rich food of the Maya civilization. Ramon seeds are actually the seed of the ramon fruit. Ramon seeds do not contain tree allergens like almonds, walnuts and pecans.
Teeccino selects the highest quality, pure natural flavors that are made from flavoring constituents that are extracted from natural ingredients like fruits, spices, herbs and even coffee.
