Since giving up coffee about a year ago, I've struggled to find a comparable alternative. Although I treat myself to decaf once a week, I've wanted something to drink on a more regular basis that still gives me that rich taste of coffee, but lacks the buzz + crash. 

For me, tea lacks the boldness and volume that coffee encompasses, and while matcha is a great alternative, it still has too much caffeine for me to handle. After being on a caffeine sabbatical, even decaf coffee can sometimes do me in! So, what's a girl to do without her morning beverage?
