Grain Coffee

An ideal substitute for coffee, caffeine-free grain coffee is made from roasted grains (barley, rice, or rye), beans (aduki beans or chickpeas), and roots (burdock, chicory, beet, or dandelion root). Bitter grain coffee can help stimulate weakened heart conditions, like irregular heartbeat.
