I would take pure cacao every week if it worked that way. However, the magic needs a little more time to reset. The combination of cocoa & coffee is nearly just as good. Cocoa is merely roasted cacao. The roasting process removes many of the nutrients, but not all of them! There is still plenty of goodness inside cocoa. The problem is you would need to consume an ungodly amount of powder to achieve a good day. Instant coffee makes a beautiful base. The feel blends with the cocoa. The cocoa takes you where you would never have gone alone.
