Caffè d’orzo (barley coffee) is very popular in Italy. Everyone likes it from children to grandparents but there is a very special group of people who simply love Orzo♥Coffee: Italian mums and mums to be. Orzo♥Coffee is the perfect coffee alternative for all mums to be in Italy and a growing number of mums in the UK.
Pregnancy is an extremely important time of every woman (and man) life. So much attention is placed in nurturing and giving all the best to each new little life. Research shows that caffeine during pregnancy (and breastfeeding) can have harmful effects on babies and therefore doctors recommend a limited consumption. However, while caffeine is not good for mums-to-be, we know that a warm drink is often needed when taking a break and hydration is of paramount importance for mums well-being during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Orzo♥Coffee is the alternative chosen by all mums-to-be in Italy as it provides a refreshing drink and allows you to keep your ritual of brewing a fresh mug of coffee but it is naturally caffeine-free and full of goodness.
Since Orzo♥Coffee arrival in the UK almost one year ago, we have put our coffee alternative to the test of both experts and mums. It has been reviewed by pregnancy expert Sarah Buchanan from Baby Birth “was surprised to discover that not only is it more than drinkable, it is delicious. It would be very easy to imagine yourself drinking a creamy coffee. The taste is not overpowering but I think has a subtle nutty flavour. I can imagine expecting women using this to replace their mid morning coffee not only because it is caffeine-free but because it makes a tasty hot drink. Equally, come the evening, add more milk to the powder and you have a comforting pre bedtime drink. I will certainly be recommending and offering Orzo♥Coffee to my clients, confident that it is a healthy and tasty option”. One of our customers from Brighton also told us “Discovered orzo in my local health food store looking for a coffee alternative while I am expecting my second child. It is now become my daily treat. When friends visit and see me with my black coffee brewed in the cafetiere they all start telling me that I shouldn't drink so much coffee... they never guess that it is orzo and naturally caffeine-free!”
Orzo♥Coffee is our passion and we are very proud that it contributes to the natural well-being of mums and mums-to-be, and many little ones.
