“I was looking for a substitute for coffee which I tend to drink too much of as the caffeine makes my menopause symptoms worse. This product looks like coffee and has a fruity flavour and is good at fooling me into thinking that I am drinking coffee but without the caffeine intake.
Love it. Will buy it again.”

Carol Parker, Lancaster

Response from A.Vogel: You're spot on with your comments. Bambu is an excellent choice for menopausal ladies whose symptoms  are exacerbated with caffeine but cannot live without their 'coffee' hit.
