Brewing Powdered Coca tea

What you need:
2 Paper filters for Aeropress
1 Aeropress measure full of powdered coca tea also known as coca flour
9-10 oz of hot water. Filtered water is best.
2 Mugs, One strong mug for pressing , one for serving

How to prepare it

Assemble the device

Instead of only one paper filter use two

Dump coca flour into the tube
Fill the tube with hot water (between 3 - 4 mark)

Stir for 15-20 seconds

You need to wet the rubber plunger BEFORE pressing the Powdered Coca Tea. If the rubber plunger is dry, makes it harder for water to press through.


The results

A dark, coffee color like, concentrated coca tea we call CocaPress

1 cup of this brew can make up to 6 cups of regular coca tea or iced tea, just add hot water or ice and cold water. You can add sugar to taste, 1/2 lime or lemon, split in 4 equal portions and you have 4 coca espresso shots, the shots are strong and it is better when you drink them slowly. Ideal for diets, to suppress appetite, depression problems or to get the energy you need to start or continue a productive day.

The remaining at the Aeropress can be used to make pastries, pasta or bread, they are full of Calcium, Vitamins and Protein, you can also re-use it to brew a milder coca tea but keep in mind that most of the alkaloids will be gone at the first brew.

Next: Whey protein and CocaPress ( Pre workout energy drink )

I run a few grams of the flour through my espresso machine each morning and it comes out almost as dark and robust as the press. I have not used the press, but the tea from it looks delicious!

I don't know how I got through the day before I found this coca tea on Amazon. It's an amazing food.
