I get into weird morning drink routines.

For months at a time I’ll drink only cold brew.

And then I’ll be off coffee and drink strictly earl grey.

Then I’ll move to green smoothies with matcha.

And then back to cold brew.

And so on.

Right now though, I’m really into this Fake Coffee cold brew with a touch of maple syrup and pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt.

Fake Coffee is an herbaceous coffee alternative from Big Heart Tea Co. It looks like a cup of coffee and feels like a cup of coffee and it kind of tastes like one too. The earthy blend of organic raw cacao, chicory, dandelion root and cinnamon brings a good jolt. Because raw cacao babes – it’s no joke.

To start I make a Fake Coffee cold brew. Did you know that you can cold brew tea? Well you totally can. You combine tea with cold water in a jar. And you shake it. And then you let them commingle with one another for a few hours. And then you strain the tea. That’s basically it, but for a step-by-step illustration here is Big Heart Tea’s complete How To Cold Brew Tea guide.

The maple syrup compliments the blend’s deepness and complexity. And the pink Himalayan salt rounds all the flavors out while supplying additional health benefits like promoting a healthy pH balance, stabilizing blood sugar levels, preventing muscle cramps and providing your body with an abundance of minerals that regular table salt cannot provide you. I don’t wanna tell you what to do but if you haven’t already started to integrate pink Himalayan salt into your life you probably should.

I like to make this Fake Coffee cold brew with unsweetened almond milk, but any milk will work non-dairy and the like. I used 1 teaspoon of maple syrup, but you can build from there depending on how sweet you like your drinks.

    Yum! I’m so excited because I just ordered Fake Coffee for my friend as a birthday gift. She’s been off coffee for a couple years now because it makes her nuts and she’s tried a few other fake coffee blends and enjoyed them. So I’m hoping yours will be her new favorite and now I also have this perfect post to send her after she opens her gift!

    I totally know what you’re talking about. I have a strict morning routine (I’m not a morning person!) and I try to vary it every now and then. I can’t change too much that would just confuse me. I’ve never heard about Fake Coffee. It sounds amazing. And your idea to add a hint of pink Himalayan salt is amazing. It’s super important to balance the sweet flavors with a bit saltiness. Thanks for sharing this wonderful product!

    I get on different morning routines too. Right now it’s kombucha, and it will probably change to coffee soon. Or this! I love the thought of something a little more nourishing that my normal cup. xo

    I am so into these non-caffeinated drinks right now! Always switching it up and these flavors sound divine. Must try!

      Hi Alison – Fake Coffee does contain caffeine in cacao form!
