What is Mushroom Coffee and Why is Everyone Drinking It?

Mushroom coffee is exactly what you would imagine - coffee with mushrooms! But these mushrooms aren't added for flavour - they are utilised as a functional food for their powerful adaptogenic properties.

We’re a nation of coffee lovers and it seems that every new day brings a different variety of coffee! Trouble is, many of these options contain masses of hidden sugar and whopping doses of caffeine, giving us a spike of energy that’s quickly followed by a sluggish slump.

Drinks too high in caffeine create the illusion of energy by binding to receptors in our brain that regulate the sleep-wake cycle. This provides a sort of artificial alertness that isn’t sustainable and may even leave you feeling more tired, not to mention disrupting sleep later in the evening.

But coffee provides some undeniable health benefits – studies have found that drinking coffee is linked with improved stamina, enhanced cognitive performance and reducing the risk of some diseases, in addition to boosting energy levels. So how can we benefit from these without compromising sleep or having to endure the caffeine jitters?

The answer is mushroom coffee. Mushroom coffee typically provides just half the caffeine you’d find in a cup of coffee and works at a cellular level to promote natural energy replenishment mechanisms. This means you can reap all the benefits of coffee without overdoing the caffeine – for a sustainable energy release that instills mental clarity and focus - but minus the caffeine crash!

Why Should I Drink Mushroom Coffee?

Mushroom coffee is all about the botanical benefits of these two amazing ingredients and how they can work in synergy to boost energy and fight fatigue.

 

Enjoy mushroom coffee for:

✅ Natural, Sustainable Energy

✅ Enhanced Cognitive Function

✅ Focus and Mental Clarity

✅ Brain Health Support

✅ Calmer Energy Without the Jitters or Caffeine Crash

 

What Is Mushroom Coffee Made With?

Not all mushroom coffee is created equal, so always be sure to check out the ingredients and and their potency, which should be detailed on the packaging. Organic, dual-extracted mushrooms are the gold-standard of Mushroom Coffee - which is exactly what we use to make ours!

We have created 2 unique mushroom coffee blends, Original Shroom Coffee and Ground Mushroom Coffee. Each utilises a combination of dual-extracted functional mushrooms and Organic coffee, to bring you a delicious brew elevated with powerful adaptogenic mushrooms.

 

☕ Arabica Coffee – Organic and sustainably sourced Arabica coffee beans grown on small farms high in the mountains. Also known as “mountain coffee”, the Arabica species of the coffee is the most popular in the world, thriving at high altitudes for a distinct aromatic flavour. Our beans are roasted to perfection to create a dark, smooth coffee with subtle flavours of cocoa, before being blended and finished here in the UK.

 

🍄 Chaga Mushroom – Also known as “Gift from God”, Chaga mushrooms are a favourite in functional medicine. Chaga works to reduce inflammation in the brain, helping to keep neurons and brain cells healthy for optimal cognitive performance.

 

🍄 Cordyceps Mushroom – A natural energy enhancer for body and mind, Cordyceps helps to enhance cognitive performance and support overall brain health. Cordyceps mushroom stimulates the central nervous system and adrenal glands to support a steady release of energy and fight back against mental fatigue.


🍄 Lion’s Mane Mushroom – Best known for its nootropic properties, Lion’s Mane increases mental clarity and alertness to help you glide through your busy schedule effortlessly. Enhance cognitive performance, promote brain health and help to relieve stress and anxiety with this powerful functional mushroom.

 

🍠 Maca Root - Used in our Original Shroom Coffee, Maca works to balance your biology and promote the natural state of homeostasis – a sort of inner harmony! This minimises the harmful effects of chronic stress and fatigue and works in synergy with energy replenishment.

How Does Mushroom Coffee Taste?

Our Mushroom Coffee does not taste like mushrooms! They are dual-extracted and added for their functional properties, not their flavour. So, our mushroom coffee tastes smooth, nutty, aromatic and rich with a subtle hint of cocoa - just like the organic Arabica coffee we use to make it. Our mushroom coffee has an authentic taste which coffee connoisseurs will love – you’ll forget the mushrooms are there, until they work their magic!

 

Switching out your usual cuppa for a powerful Shroom Coffee is the perfect way to reenergise and revitalise whilst supporting your overall health and wellbeing. With all-natural ingredients and only half the caffeine content of a conventional cuppa, Shroom Coffee is ideal for those who need a bit of a boost but don’t want the jitters, anxiety or palpitations of caffeine overload!
