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 understand that this was prior to the coffee tree making its way across the Atlantic via Spanish vessels.
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, French Roast, Java and Dandelion Dark Roast, those coffee drinkers who like pure coffee flavor preferred dark roasted French Roast or, if they need to be certified gluten-free, Dandelion Dark Roast. 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!
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, organic ramon seeds, natural coffee flavor.
May contain trace amounts of almonds.

"So I had to quit coffee for health reasons and let me tell you.... this stuff is magic. It tastes just like coffee and can be prepared just like coffee. I don't feel like I've made a sacrifice at all. When I shared it with several of my grad student friends (hello coffee addicts) they couldn't even tell the difference. Simply, it's wonderful!"

"My naturopath took me off coffee and I was badly missing my morning cappuccino. This coffee is pretty darn close. I put it through my espresso machine using the dual wall filter and it even gets la creama on top...I would prefer it was gluten free but I will try the dandelion coffee to see how it compares. If it doesn't I will continue to buy this as it is really good!"

"I rarely take the time to write reviews on things that I buy because I value my information as a commodity that should be bought by the company that is asking it for free.
That said, I will gladly spend just a moment to say "Wow!". This is the best coffee substitute out there. I've tried a few and all of them are good. I especially like the Java blend.
In fact, I'd say I much prefer Teeccino to coffee: no more acid, much better digestion, and NO MORE caffeine. I am very grateful that this product helped me kick the coffee habit, in large part because it TASTES SO GOOD! Thank you to everyone who makes these beverages possible. "

"absolute perfect coffee substitute if you take your coffee with milk and sugar you can't taste a difference, however if you like your coffee black or with just a tiny amount of milk i suggest trying the french vanilla when first starting to quite then try this."

Much to my surprise, it tastes just like coffee!! Unbelievable! Then to have the added benefits of it actually being healthy and natural stimulant - WOW!! I am so glad I found you Teeccino!!!! You're my morning ritual and my evening dessert with absolutely no guilt!!!"

"I thought I would have to give up my morning coffee and just drink herbal tea from now on. I received my shipment of Teeccino yesterday and after drinking my first cup of the "coffee", I'm hooked. My best friend of40 years found out she was allergic to caffeine so I ordered her some samples!! Thank you!"
By: Sam from Knoxville, TN US on November 17, 2016
"I have hypertension issues and had transitioned to green tea in an effort to cut back on caffeine. Even with the diminished amount , my BP was still affected. I happened across Teeccino on the net and order a couple of sampler packages. I regret to say that I left them in the cabinet for several months before trying the French Roast today, and I was blown away. This easily the closest you can get to actual coffee, and much better than decaf. While Teeccino doesn't achieve quite the depth of aftertaste that coffee achieves, it's so close that the difference is negligible., and a real treat for those of us who are denied the real thing. It's a real winner!"

"I really wanted to like the French Roast Teeccino product. I wanted an alternative to coffee -- the acid was causing my GERD to flare up. I was really disappointed by the taste of the Teeccino. I didn't like it at all. I tried it on three days separated by a couple of weeks. It didn't matter. I just didn't the taste. It doesn't taste like coffee at all. "

"I had a diagnosis of cystitis many years ago and try to avoid acid and caffeine among other things. I found the French Roast Herbal Coffee to be a good substitute for regular coffee. I eased myself into the change by using half decaf coffee and half French Roast herbal coffee in my coffee maker for the first week or so. I flavor my herbal coffee with coffee mate and Splenda just like normal coffee. The adjustment was easy to the taste difference and it's a relief to have lessened the pain of my cystitis."

"This is an excellent drink that is delicious and nutritious. I would like to see Starbucks offer Teeccino products. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is the largest faith community whose Word of Wisdom (D&C 89) prohibits coffee and tea. Teeccino is an excellent way to boycott an industry that is hard on the body, the environment, and people's quest for fair trade. Thank you for this awesome new market!"

The only think is that the big bag is out of stock."

REGARDING THE quality of this product, as an amateur coffee connoisseur this is the best coffee imitation after testing the Hazelnut, Vanilla, and Java formulas. I drink my coffee (or imitation) "black", without adding sugar or cream, etc.
What might be of interest to others is: I liked this product called Teeccino Maya French Roast, even though I do not like the actual French Roasted coffees I have ever tried. That may be because in the U.S. roasters gave that name to almost-burned coffee grain. Over roasting real coffee grain makes it difficult to ascertain its grain quality. But Teeccino's French Roast is even better. "

Then I found Teeccino's Maya French Roast. At first I mixed it with regular coffee, but now I drink it by itself. It tastes like coffee and my skin issues are 99% cleared up! Thank you! My only suggestion....K-cups!!!!"

"I was skeptical about this product, but I am glad I tried it! When I got it, I smelled the bag and thought it smelled like stale decaf. But when I brewed up a cup, I was pleasantly surprised! It takes good! The first sip was weird but after that you want more. It has sort of a cinnamon/chocolate flavor mixed with coffee. It is REALLY GOOD! I'm so glad they developed a healthy alternative to coffee. :) I will be buying more of this."

"I'm a shameless coffee addict. I can't start a day without my 2.5 cups, but I can't end the day with the same or I never sleep. I ran across Teeccino when reading about digestive issues and decided to give it a try as an evening substitute. I absolutely wasn't expecting something that mimicked coffee perfectly, so maybe that's why I loved it as much as I did.
There are a lot of notes in every flavor, and a similar richness to dark roast coffees that I love best. I brew it stronger than most probably would, and the teabags also work really well when doubled up. Adding cream creates a cross between hot chocolate and coffee.
This isn't coffee, but something unique and all its own that's similar and just as delicious in its own way."

"What I've missed about coffee, far more than the caffeine, is the consistency and mouth-feel. Tea can't provide that, but Teeccino can and does. That realization was my first Teeccino ahhhh moment.
I tried the sample pack of French Roast, and it really does have somewhat of a coffee flavor, another really nice surprise.
To me it is a bit bitter, but so was coffee at first. As I got used to it, the bitterness disappeared, and I imagine it will this time too. In any case, it's not unpleasant.
This was an interesting finding - you can add a good bit more water than called for without losing the great consistency, feel or flavor That was an excellent surprise. I used the 8 cup mark on my coffee maker. Perfect.
Shipping was speedy! Customer service was prompt and efficient in solving a billing issue. Wonderful company, fabulous product.
Thanks to Teeccino, my mornings can be comfy again - as soon as I receive the 10 pack sampler I'm about to order."
By: Beth from East Lansing on October 23, 2012
"While I love the fact that there are all natural ingredients, no caffeine, and no acidity to worry about for my sensitive stomach, I was disappointed in that it really didn't taste like coffee at all. It was more of a herbal tea type flavor; that's the only way I can explain it.
I am going to be trying one of the "flavored" types very soon because I don't want to give up on Teeccino all together but just wanted to let people know what to expect at least with the French Roast."
By: Shirley Harrell from Greenville NC on October 3, 2012
"The taste of the French Roast (dark) is the nearest taste of real coffee and without any bitter taste after drinking it. It does not harm the stomach in any way which is the reason I cannot drink real coffee...but to me....this is a better alternative."

"I admit I am a coffee snob. Due to some digestive issues I had to look for alternatives...this is the closest you will get to the real thing. At first, I used 1T real coffee and 1T Teeccino and no adjustment was needed. Some times I will just make a cup of Teeccino - and it's wonderful!"

At work people ask me what I am drinking and I tell them itâs my Mormon coffee."

"It has the closest taste to coffee that I have come across. I can make this oproduct as medium flavored to a very bold strong flavor that I prefer. This product does not have the sweet fruity flavor that the Java has. It is nice to be able to drink a coffee flavored drink and not have your heart go nuts. Thank you for this great product."
By: Paddy from Boston, Mass. on October 20, 2011
"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!"

After drinking coffee and espresso for the past 20 years and then having to give it up - like a long time friend - I can say without a doubt that the Maya French Roast is the closest thing to real coffee. Well, without the nasty side effects. This will be my number one Teeccino pick going forward. Thank you for making these real coffee flavors for us diehards."

"I am so grateful for Teeccino! I have issues with my stomach and also love coffee. I thought I would never be able to overcome the pain in my stomach when I had coffee or my loss of coffee if I gave it up. Then I was introduced to teeccino through a friend. She showed me how I could still completely enjoy a hot cup of joe every morning and not have stomach pain and issues from the acid. It is wonderful to be pain free.
Plus a bonus! There are sooooo many different yummy flavors to choose form each morning.
I have also weened my mother who has had a heart attack off coffee. I accomplished this by slowly over time mixing coffee and teeccino together until she didn't even notice that there was no more coffee left in the pot.
Thank you Teeccino!!!"

We have tried many of the other flavors, but for daily use this is the one! We did try the dandelion version but just wasn't the same depth of flavor. Love it when there is a sale and we get this already great deal at an even better price!"

"The closest tasting to real coffee as I ever tasted...love it!! Coffee was very hard to give up for me, and I I have to have decaf, otherwise I get migraines, but it never tastes quite like real coffee..whats great is if I want to put just a smidge of reg coffee in with the Teeccino I can and honestly it taste better than regular coffee by itself...so for the caffeine lovers, ween yourself but dont deprive yourself, I promise you will enjoy the taste so much more with less of the caffeine if you prefer to have it...I dont really miss it...Im sleeping better too!! .I really hope they start making K-cups for the Maya French Roast because I get tired of cleaning out the little filters....I drink my Maya quite often...So please please make K-cups!!!!"

I struggle every morning, to get the flavor and satisfaction out of these tea bags...I just don't feel they suffice. I bought 5 or 6 boxes of 25 and I'm fully withdrawn from Caffeine and it challenges me everyday still to keep drinking Teeccinno, there just not that enjoyable. Very frustrating, I wish it were different."

"I had to stop drinking amazing arabica top quality coffee for the sake of my health or I would destroy the health of my esophagus and stomach ( as I had been doing for many years because of coffee) - it turns out that it is not the caffeine in coffee but an enzyme in the coffee bean that thins the lining of the esophagus and stomach causing all the the problems from heartburn to cancer and make our digestive system so very acidic!
Teeccino is my delicious answer,"

"This is a truly great product! I have always hated herbal teas because in both tea and coffee I love the bite from the acid as well as the caffeine jolt. But both were doing a major number on my vocal cords and mood, so I had to stop drinking them. I was amazed by how good the French Roast Teeccino tastes. Sometimes I get a hint of herbal in there, but the natural coffee flavor wins out every time. I take the bags with me to work and when I travel, and no longer feel a need (not even occasionally!) to treat myself with lattes from Peet's. I do not miss the hot acid bath. "

After slowly changing to this product, I brew an 8 cup pot with only one teaspoon of coffee mixed into 6 of Teecino Maya. It tastes very much like my old brew and I got to keep the' coffee cup habit. My throat problems are in check and no medicine is required. It may not be coffee, but I think it is better, and safer for me. "

I love out it cuts the acidity down on standard coffee and now I cant drink regular coffee without it. I wish starbucks and other coffee shops and restaurants offered it. the best way to drink it for full flavor is to make a french press or an espresso. The tea bags dont offer much flavor at all so I would say skip those."

"I was suffering terribly from acid reflux and taking two medications did not help. After doing some research, I realized that the only way my eroded and inflamed esophagus would heal was to STOP pouring ACID in it with what I ate and drank. I had always sworn I'd never give up coffee -- i loved it (was addicted to it) and drank at least 5 cups a day. But being so sick and knowing my condition could to lead to cancer of the esophagus, I finally surrendered and went 'Acid and caffein free".
This product has saved my life. I use my favorite creamer in it and it does the trick, once you get over the caffein withdrawal. I do not feel deprived. I can carry the tea bags with me anywhere, and they are so easy and mess-free. Do yourself a favor without losing the flavor. (I just made that up!)"

"My ENT doctor said if I ever wanted to stop taking prevacid I would have to give up coffee. I figured I was going to die someday anyway, but life was too short to not enjoy my daily cup(s) of coffee. I love a good dark brewed coffee, drink it black, and have 2-3 cups a day.
The Doc. said to try an herbal tea, which I've been trying to drink for years, but they don't do the trick. Then in an online search for coffee substitutes I found Teeccino. I've tried the sample pack, the Java, and the Maya dark roast. The Maya comes the closest to my nice dark coffee flavor, the Java is nice too, and a bit more mellow. My first taste was questionable, but after two days all my doubts were gone. This was an excellent coffee substitute, and I can have more than 3 cups if I want, or drink it in the afternoon and still sleep at night.
I seem to have more energy, without the jitters I got from caffiene, and I never get the sour stomach feeling that I got from too much coffee. I'm cutting down the prevacid to every other day, and hope to be completely off it by the end of the year."

"I have been drinking Teeccino for 5 years now - ever since I quit drinking coffee. The last couple years I have been drinking the Maya Dark Roast - It is so, so good. Please keep making this product. I recommend it to all I know who have to quit coffee...it is even better.

"I have been using Maya Caffe Herbal Coffee for the past 3-4 years. I love it. It suits my needs perfectly. I cut out caffeine completely and being an avid coffee drinker of a full pot a day, I thought it would be pretty impossible to give up. By combing the herbal with the real coffee and gradually decreasing the coffee, it was a breeze, didn't notice it or miss it at all. So glad I found this. Thanks!"
