I am a caffeine-powered working mom. I drink so much coffee on a daily basis that my body is now immune to it’s effects. If people drink coffee to stay awake, I drink a cup of coffee so I can go to sleep.

Coffee has a lot of health benefits but when overly consumed, it also has negative side effects to your body like irregular heartbeat, hyper-acidity, and anxiety. Unfortunately, the copious amount of coffee that I consume has taken a toll on my body. One thing that I noticed is that I am now experiencing body tremors and because of this, I have been trying to cut back on my consumption.

One thing that has helped me reduce my coffee intake is Barlico. Barlico offers a line of barley and chicory-based instant coffee substitutes are 100% caffeine free and are made from all-natural ingredients, making them a health-conscious alternative for individuals whose health conditions and preferences limit their caffeine consumption.

Barley and Chicory Instant Coffee Substitute

  • Dark, roasted, and robust taste similar to coffee
  • Low-calorie
  • Unsweetened
  • 100g glass jar

This is my favorite among all the Barlico products. I love brewed coffee and the Barley and Chicory Instant Coffee Substitute gives me the right amount of acidity and bitterness that I look for in coffee. The aroma is totally satisfying, too! Despite the fact that it does not contain caffeine, each sip gives me the kick that I get from coffee but without the negative side effects.

What I do to reduce, coffee consumption is that I drink coffee in tje morning to wake me up then switch to Barlico for my mid-morning, lunch, mid-afternoon, and late evening cup. That way, I still get the satisfaction from the taste because it tastes just like brewed coffee and enjoying the health benefits of barley and chicory.

This one tastes just like my favorite 3-in-one coffee minus the overly sweet taste which is very good.

Barley and Chicory Instant Hot Chocolate
