Macaccino – from SOL Natural Foods, artfully combines the traditional healing properties of organic roasted maca with rich cocoa and warming spices to create a hot drink reminiscent of a cappuccino or a cold drink evocative of a frappaccino. Energizing, without the caffeine, this superfood-charged beverage offers an option to its higher-powered and jittery cousin, coffee.
Macaccino creator, Aaron Glassman, founder of Santa Monica’s popular vegan eatery, The Golden Mean Cafe, is on a mission to share this maca-infused drink with the world. He is committed to creating clean products that build the health of the individual and the Earth. Replace your morning cup of coffee with a mug of Macaccino and you are fueling your body with clean, organic energy that requires little water and no pesticides.
Cultivated in the Andes, Roasted in LA
Dressed up like a frothy latte or an iced mocha, the Macaccino looks like a specialty coffee drink, yet its source of fuel is not caffeine, but the Peruvian superfood Maca, a funny looking root that grows in altitudes of 14,000 feet in the Andes mountains. With an enviable nutritional resume, that contains amino acids, essential fatty acids, phenols, vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc, maca has earned its superfood moniker. An adaptogen, maca improves the body’s ability to adapt to stress. It has been used for centuries to increase energy, boost mood, enhance libido and balance hormones.
SOL sources the roots from the cold heights of the Andes Mountains and roasts and blends maca, in sunny, warm Los Angeles. Following the traditional protocols for preparing maca, SOL roasts the root to preserve its dense nutritional profile, and to aid digestibility.
How Do I Make a Macaccino?
It’s easy. Use 1 tablespoon of our powdered instant beverage and add 9 oz. of hot water. Stir well, and add 3 oz. of soy creamer. Sweeten to taste. For an iced Macaccino, combine 1 tablespoon of Macaccino powder, 9 oz. of coconut milk (or milk of choice), a handful of ice cubes and blend in your blender. Add an additional scoop of vanilla ice cream for a creamier drink.
