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 Original.
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. If you want a purely unsweetened brew, try our dark roasted Maya French Roast.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic barley, chicory, organic chicory, almonds, organic dates, natural coffee flavor, organic figs.

"Did not sample the Maya blend. I talked to a representative and decided to try the original blend in ground and the new tea bags. We enjoyed them very much the tea bags were great. I wanted to try them for my handicaped daughter. We went to a restaurant and asked for a cup of hot water and she used the tea bag. It is very handy and easy for her to use. Can't wait till our store (Good Life Market in Pgh Pa ) can get the distributor to ship the Teeccino products. Did you ever find out why they would not ship? As i told your representative two other stores cannot get your product either.

"I love iced coffee and didn't want to give it up but had to. My body had enough. When I came across the Teeccino website and read all the wonderful reviews I went out and purchased a bag of Java Herbal Coffee. It tastes YUMMY! It's even more delicious iced! Can't wait to try the French Roast. So far no tummy problems. I was already weaning myself off caffeine. So far have not fell off the wagon so to speak. "

"This is truly a wonderful product. I chose to give up coffee and tea when I chose to join LDS. This I feel much better without the ups and downs of coffee. I struggled to find a healthy alternative for coffee. Teeccino was it. Thank you for a wonderful product. "

"I am an avid coffee drinker, coffee is a passion for me. I bought this for my friend who is allergic to caffeine. He can't have coffee or chocolate because of the caffeine in them. Even decaf coffee affects him almost instantly. I found this brand and had to try it because I am always interested in trying different coffees, and I wanted to find him an alternative coffee, because I believe everyone deserves a great cup of coffee. We both loved it. I didn't really like the taste of it black, but it tasted great with some peppermint creamer. We used York Peppermint Patty creamer, which doesn't contain chocolate, so he can have it. The carob in the coffee is caffeine-free and gives the chocolate taste of the patty, while the peppermint creamer gives the peppermint taste. Together the flavors combine for a perfect blend of goodness. If you can't have coffee for medical reasons, I highly suggest getting this alternative. And definitely try it with peppermint creamer!"

"I don't like calling this a substitute for real coffee because this stands on its own feet. Not as sweet and date flavored as the original, which I prefer. I have no acid problems as with the other stuff. Just a good overall hot drink."

"I always brew half coffee and half Teeccino and the Java is my standard, go-to for a quick brew. It is good. It really gives it a bold, earthy flavor and I love it. I simply can't drink regular coffee anymore; it is not nearly as good. "
