Ojoche Tostado™ Dark Roasted Superfood Elixir
Ojoche Tostado - A naturally energizing caffeine-free mood enhancing superfood elixir.
What is it?
Ojoche is an ancient Mayan superfood seed that grows on the ojoche tree native to Central America. When roasted and steeped, ojoche seeds make a brew that naturally energizes you and gives you the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants your body needs to generate overall wellness. Ojoche Tostado is high in potassium, calcium, vitamin C, folate, iron, vitamin B6 and tryptophan. Ojoche is completely caffeine, allergen and toxin-free as stated by the FDA.
Sourcing and Support for rural Communities
Our ojoche is sourced directly from women's collectives in Nicaragua who sustainably wild harvest and process all of the seeds. That means that purchasing ojoche directly supports rural communities and helps families build and grow. Each purchase of ojoche helps to provide education for children in rural areas, bring in food and clean water to people in need, and provide income for women and families.
What does it taste like?
This dark roast is bold, rich, robust, and full-bodied with notes of chocolate, coffee, mocha and earth. Ojoche also holds up exceptionally well to cream or dairy alternative and can be enhanced with maple syrup, honey, or other sweetener.
How to Prepare:
For a hot preparation, steep 1 tablespoon of ojoche in 8-10oz of boiling water for 5 minutes. You can do this in a french press or directly in your cup. Enjoy straight or with cream or your favorite dairy alternative, maple syrup, honey, or other sweetener.
Ojoche also makes a delicious cold brew. For cold preparation, mix 5 tablespoons of ojoche granules into 32oz of cold water. Mix, and let sit in the fridge for 24 hours to steep and enjoy over ice. Pair with full fat coconut milk or cream for a luscious elixir experience.
Ojoche is naturally very dense, so by nature it won't dissolve completely into your drink. You can drink it all by swirling the sediment into the liquid as you go, or if you prefer, you can pour off the liquid so you won't have any sediment. The sediment is great prebiotic fiber! If you prefer to strain out the solids you can save them and use them for cooking or baking. There is still lots of nutrition left in them and you can add the grounds to brownies, cookies, pancakes, smoothies, chili, marinades, mole - the list just keeps growing.
