Add the secret ingredient -- half a teaspoon of cocoa

Posted by KentuckyWildcat on Sep 24, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I was looking for a substitute to black tea or coffee with a similar depth of flavor. I tried Pero, using 2 heaping teaspoons to a 15 oz mug of hot water. I found it to be somewhat pleasant but thin and lacking in body and dimension. What I missed were the slight acidic and bitter undertones present in a good black tea or a coffee. To recoup those flavors I tried adding half a teaspoon of a good Dutch-processed cocoa -- and it worked! There is no cocoa/chocolate/mocha flavor at all, just slightly bitter, acidic notes underscoring the roasted coffee flavors on top, with more body and roundness. A half-teaspoon of demerara sugar and I am all set.

Thanks for your feedback!

Since Postum has been discontinued, we tried this product and found it to be very good. I put sugar and milk in it enjoy drinking it.

Good coffee alternative

Posted by 5428938825400318895 on Dec 15, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I am addicted to coffee but had to cut down and this is a great alternative which apparently offers health benefits too! Feels like you are having a coffee.

Thanks for your feedback!

Quite okay alternative to coffee, even though it didn't quite taste like coffee... Maybe a weak form for... Anyhow, it was okay for a caffeine free alternative.

Thanks for your feedback!

Like it, but prefer dark roast

Posted by 4641805876382278960 on Jul 29, 2012 | Verified Purchase

It is a not so strong coffee substitute, and as a previous coffee addict, I prefer something dark and strong. The best is actually Cafix, but the PERO Dark Roast comes close to what I like.

Thanks for your feedback!

Pero Is Ok But It's No Postum

Posted by Reviewer2493082 on Mar 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Since Postum left the market, I haven't found a suitable instant substitute. Pero is ok but I find it bitter so I have to load it up with sugar and creamer. It has a good texture, much better than freeze dried Cafix. Still looking for something tastier.

Thanks for your feedback!

No flavor

Posted by Reviewer1808969 on Feb 13, 2013 | Verified Purchase

Absolutely no flavor. Not even with double amounts. Tea would work better. So I am back to teecino. I need some flavor even if it is not real coffee. Disappointing.

Thanks for your feedback!
