Maca Magic MaCafe Powder -- 5.2 oz
I drink this as a grain-free coffee substitute. I've been drinking it for like 8 years, even when I ate gluten & everything else, because I loved the taste so much almost immediately. I tried it originally to see if it might energize me when needed. I have never noticed any energy or mood effects from this. I can drink it at bedtime even, and I'm insanely sensitive to coffee, tea, chocolate, etc. I used to put cream (or almond milk) and sugar (or maple syrup or honey) in it, but now I prefer it black. Oh, prepare it like instant coffee.

IF you don't LIKE this...
Then please buy this version- link below... "Maca Magic Powder" instead. You only have to add 1/2 teaspoon to a smoothie or chocolate milk, (or something thick and creamy-ish) It has the taste of malt, like in malted milk balls candy. It mixes in completely if you use a bullet blender to make your drink. Trust me you will have no issues with this slightly different product from Maca Magic if you follow my suggestion. A half teaspoon is so small and powerful! http://www.vitacost.com/maca-magic-powder-jar-7-1-oz

Doesn't taste great, but gives me energy
I agree that MaCafe doesn't taste good, but it does give me energy without the speedy feeling of caffeine. I use it as a medicine, not a tasty drink. I've gotten more used to the taste- it's not terrible, just not great. I don't know the right preparation, but I put a spoonful in a cup of hot water and add honey. It would probably be good with coconut milk or hazelnut milk.

Nothing like I expected!
This product has so many benefits....if you can gag it down. It has no instructions on how to prepare. States to make just like coffee, instant or brewed? also states you can drink it iced... again if you can Gag it down. I was so dissapointed as I was so excited to reap the benefits of the maca root, but feel deceived by the comparison to coffee. It's nothing like, nor can you prepare it like coffee. If I could get my money back I would. Now it's just sitting in my cupboard and will probably get thrown in the trash....soooooo sad!

better than coffee
Maca takes some getting used to, but I prefer this over coffee now. Gives me energy and tastes good too.
