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 mix 1/3 organic decaf coffee with this teeccino flavor and it tastes like the real thig, only better. I have used teeccino by itself and my guests didn't like the flavor so much. Now they can't tell the difference!"

"I started using Teeccino after a friend, who was kicking coffee and caffeine, recommended it. I blend the Vanilla Nut 50/50 with decaffeinated coffee and just LOVE the flavor - and the lack of caffeine in my life. Thanks so much for offering that BIG BAG as well!"

"This is my morning beverage which I make in a French press and sweeten with organic sugar. And I can drink Teeccino products all day long and never worry about the 'caffeine' buzz or let down. Thank you so much for your wonderful products!"

"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'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."

"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. "
