Cafe Viva Probiotic Coffee
Cafe Viva is instant robusta coffee blended with probiotics and powdered milk based creamer.
The product seeks to give coffee lovers a healthy dose of probiotics along with their caffeine.
We were recently sent a few packets of Cafe Viva Probiotic Coffee to sample.
Cafe Viva Review
The directions say to add Cafe Viva to water that is no more than 113 degrees Fahrenheit and stir.
The taste of Viva is similar to other instant coffees with powdered creamer added. (Personally, I don't prefer the taste of instant coffee and only drink it on camping trips or on rare occasions. )
But, regular instant coffee doesn't deliver 4 billion healthy bacteria either, so Viva seems like a good way to get probiotics in a coffee flavored delivery agent.
Although I can't see most coffee enthusiasts drinking Cafe Viva for pure enjoyment because:
- 113 degrees isn't quite hot enough.
- It tastes like instant coffee.
- You can't drink it black, which is essential for us non-milk drinkers.
100% Natural Ingredients
It's nice to see the Cafe Viva Probiotic coffee does contain all-natural ingredients including: milk based creamer, robusta coffee, and cultures; L. bulgaricus, L. helveticus, L. lactis, and Str. thermophilus.
The product says that it contains 6 vitamins and minerals. Here's the complete nutritional panel.
A Decent Dose of Caffeine
Cafe Viva does deliver more caffeine than would be expected from most instant coffees. This is because Viva uses robusta coffee beans and not arabica beans like most instant coffees.
Cafe Viva ranges in caffeine from 120-130 milligrams per packet.
Personally, I wouldn't drink Viva on a regular basis, but I'm sure there is a market for this product among those that need to supplement probiotics and for those with a less discriminate coffee palate.
