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.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, dates, almonds, organic dates, natural vanilla extract, natural nut flavor, figs.

"We had a taste of this last evening during a visit to friend. New product and experience for our group of 4 visitors. I was positive impressed and plan NOT to drink coffee nearly as much as prior. The Vanilla Nut was our trial, and it passed inspection around the group totally."

"I quite drinking coffee 12 yrs ago due to religious reasons. I've missed coffee all those long years!!! I stumbled upon this product and had to try it. 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!!!"

"Vanilla nut is my all absolute favorite from Teeccino ! I either mix it with some medium roast Costa Rican coffee in the morning or have it by itself later in the day... hot or iced, with some cream and stevia to sweeten it. SCRUMPTIOUS. That's all I can say."

"I want to first say that I was a latte drinker every day, and wanted to cut back on my lattes and caffeine intake. I stumbled about Teecino and decided to give it a try. I purchased a bag of Vanilla Nut from my local Mother's Market and made a cup a few days ago. I just added milk and drank and I was delighted. I like the product and it has been a daily staple now. No it does not taste like my latte's but it satisfies my urge for a hot beverage in the morning, less calories, sugar and caffeine. It is a great swap!"

"I genuinely love Teccino! I've struggled with acid reflux for a long time and Teccino helped me quit the caffeine addiction with regular coffee. Drink mixed with coffee and within two weeks wean off regular coffee completely. It helped with the nasty withdrawals of caffeine. Thank you Teccino!"

"I have been a Teeccino customer for several years now and would not give up purchasing for anything in the world. I order at least 5 different flavors and make sure I NEVER run out. We practice organic living as much as possible in today's world and this is just one of those wonderful things that falls into that category. Living in FAR Northern Maine there is nothing like a soothing, fragrant cup of coffee on a cold snowy morning, nor is there anything like an awesome cup of coffee on a warm spring day on the deck after the long cold winter. There are so many kudos I could write, but just know you cannot go wrong with the quality, taste and enjoyment of Teeccino coffees. All the flavors I choose - Hazelnut, Vanilla Nut, Caramel Nut, Southern Pecan, and Amaretto are all truly superb. I will always be grateful for the creation of this wonderful company and Perfect Product."

"I am an ardent Teeccino user. It has been a number of years now and I could never go back to Coffee. I only drink coffee on the week-ends and truly look forward to those comforting morning moments when I can relax and enjoy Teeccino. Living in FAR Northern Maine where the weather is colder longer than most other places Teeccino warms and heart and soul when you snuggle up with a cup of the most flavorful coffee you can ever imagine. I will always have this in my cupboard. Thank you for making the most wonderful product possible."

"This drink rocks! I've helped so many loved ones get off coffee and live happier, healthier lives. Most importantly my grandmother who has dementia ad drank coffee her whole life (even as a child) was able to easily switch it out for Teeccino and that's huge because the dehydration & acidity caused by coffee worsens her dementia. So now with Teeccino, she gets to enjoy her coffee but stay more hydrated & alkaline & stay mindful & remember more. Also her arthritis is less too taking all that coffee acid out of her diet."

"I have been using teeccino vanilla nut and Hazel nut for about 2o years , I love their products, and wouldn't change for know other company. I use to live in southern Califoria and buy these products at sprouts but when I moved to Texas, I couldnt find the products so I started to place my orders online .. I LOVE TEECCINO ..

"At last I found an alternative to ordinary coffee that is both healthy and delicious!
I have high blood pressure and coffee is a no-no for me although I do love the taste of fresh brewed coffee. When my local gluten-free shop gave me a sample of the Vanilla Nut Teeccino Herbal Coffee I was so surprised on how tasty it was and how very similar it was to coffee! Now I have a coffee-alternative to drink in the mornings!
Thank you Teeccino! xo"

"Impressions? First, don't judge Teeccino by just one or two flavors. I bought the 10 sampler pack and the Boutique sampler pack (shipping is free on the website) and I'm glad I did. I didn't like Java, Original, French Roast, or Chai at all. That being said, I absolutely loved Vanilla Nut from the very first brew. It smells good. It tastes good. It is not coffee, but the look and feel are very similar. After drinking the vanilla nut for about a month, I tried drinking coffee again...BLEH! A once favorite treat is no longer palatable. I couldn't believe it! I love being able to drink Teeccino throughout the day. I love not having to suffer that dreaded "coffee breath". And I love the taste. I brew it in my Keurig coffee maker in the "my K cup". It works fantastically. Other flavors I like include: Hazelnut (yum), Southern Pecan and Almond Amaretto (kind of).
If you are looking for an alternative to coffee, then definitely give this a try. I am so glad I did."

"I recently had a small dinner party and served this with the dessert, a cheese course. My guests were so impressed with this coffee that they all asked to see the package. They loved the flavor, wanted to be convinced it was caffeine free, and where did I find it. I am now ordering more for both myself and friends as it will make a great gift.
Thank you for you great product."

"I tried teechino when my stomach couldn't take the acidity of coffee or the caffeine any longer. What a great product!! It's very healthy and tastes just like coffee without all the bad stuff. My favorite flavors are Vanilla Nut, Hazlenut and Almond Amaretto. Very smooth, tasty and nutritious. They go great with cream and stevia. "

"I started drinking Teechino about 8 months ago to cut back on regular coffee. I drank 1 to 2 cups a day, but I didn't like the jitteryness or acidity I noticed. I substitute half the amount with Teechino. This has helped a lot and I really like the taste. Sometimes in the evening I drink Teechino only. It's hard to find and when I can get free shipping that's a big savings. "

"I used to drink coffee for the taste and warmth, But am very caffeine sensitive and even one cup early in the morning would keep me up at night.
I tried many coffee alternatives and liked them as well, well not all of them truly, but was happy to find something close in taste, I walked by this product many many times in the grocery store because I thought It wouldn't be good, I thought It would be bitter tasting. I don't know but last week I really wanted something different. So I took a chance and bought it. I went straight home and brewed a pot I am amazed I thought I was drinking an espresso. Thank you so much for this product I am hooked for life and only 20 calories per serving. "

"I drink coffee,but since I found this Vanilla Nut Teeccino about a year ago at a health food store,I started mixing the grounds with my regular coffee,then brew. What a good taste and that way I don't drink as much regular coffee. I also started drinking the Van. Nut in the evenings as a warm comforting drink without the caffeine. I plan to cut back more and more on the coffee."
By: Joanne from Kings Park/NY on June 19, 2010
" 2 years ago the doctor told me I couldn't have caffeine (nor de-caf) anymore. It made my heart pound and the beat became dangerously irregular. After being a coffee drinker all my life, and enjoying espresso every night, I was shattered!
My daughter found your website while frantically trying to find a "caffeine-free" coffee. She ordered me the Mediterranean for my morning "coffee" and the Vanilla Nut for steaming in my espresso maker.
When I came home to the smell and sound of the Mediterranean "coffee" brewing, it brought tears to my eyes. Though slightly different from regular coffee, it gave me that same comforting feeling that I missed so much.
The Vanilla Nut, brewed as espresso, with a little whipped cream on top, has become our favorite evening drink ever! My husdand even loves it, and he wasn't even a coffee drinker. Even if I was told I could have regular coffee again, I would continue to have this every night instead of espresso! It is so delicious, and the smell fills the kitchen. We feel as if we are at a "coffee cafe"! My Life has changed - forever!

"I have had some serious intestinal challenges and the occasional cup of coffee I used to enjoy is off limits.
I tried this flavor of Teeccino for my Mother's Day breakfast instead and I made it just as strong as I do a coffee (2 T to one cup in a drip coffee maker) and added a dash of organic cream and a little Stevia or Xylitol. Everyone loved it, including my sophisticated coffee drinkers, and the conversation buzzed about what a great substitute it is.
I am hooked and happy to learn that Teeccino is good for digestion. I can't wait for my next cup!

"It has a coconut flavor that's pretty tasty if you like that. I just got a trial pack to see if I'd like it and I do :) It does get stuck in my keurig cups when I brew it since the consistency is different than coffee but its worth it and a great replacement for coffee or sugary drink!"

"This is the first time I tried Teeccino, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Since I can't drink coffee or too much tea or cocoa, this allows me to enjoy a hot drink without making my stomach upset. I ordered three samples and find the Vanilla Nut to be my favorite. I don't care for the other non-coffee drinks on the market, but I love this and will definitely order more. Thanks! "

Love coffee, love the aroma of Teecino and the other stuff I throw in there. It's a lot less acidic than straight coffee, which I've learned from saveourbones.com is a good thing for bone health. I just finished a 5-pound bag of vanilla nut and I'm just starting on my hazelnut bag, which I think might prefer but we'll see. The next I'll try is caramel. Bottom line is I LIKE!!"

"It was so easy to quit drinking coffee, thanks to Teeccino! Vanilla Nut is my favorite so far, it tastes a little like Capuccino, but without the calories or caffeine; I drink it hot with milk and sugar or splenda."
By: Anonymous from Rhode Island on June 19, 2012
"Vanilla Nut is one of my favorites and a great everyday flavor so getting it in this large size is great. I drink it hot and iced, and my kids love it too, they make a creamy "coffee milk" drink. The only problem I had is how to store it better. Once I opened the bag it was hard to keep it from spilling in storage so I wound up having to put it into a couple of separate ziplocks. A bag clip or something of that nature that works for these bags would help, or a resealable bag. "
By: Winter BelViso from Asbury Park NJ on May 7, 2012
"I've been ordering this in the large, economy size bag. I mix it half and half with decaf espresso (or Teeccino brand French Roast) and make it in my French press every morning with almond milk. Needs no extra sweetening, tastes great and none of the side effects of caffeine."
By: Elizabeth from Maine on March 19, 2012
"Vanilla Nut is a truly versatile flavor, sometimes I add it to other flavors for subtle differences and no matter if you drink it as is or add to one, it always comes out perfectly.
A truly enjoyable experience and all the flavors I enjoy will make Teeccino my coffee of choice for the rest of my life. Teeccino is far superior to any coffee I have ever had as well as being good for you. "

"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 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!"
