Ground Mushroom Coffee 101
If you like to take time to pause, sit down and enjoy nice a cup of ground coffee then you may be wondering why you should switch to ground mushroom coffee. Is it just another flavour? Is it even coffee? What are the benefits of ground mushroom coffee? Here is all you need to know.
What is Ground Mushroom Coffee?
Ground mushroom coffee is ground coffee which has been blended with medicinal mushroom extracts. This makes accessing the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms convenient and reliable, as well as enjoyable within a delicious cup of ground coffee.
We add Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps & Chaga mushrooms to take our ground dark roast coffee to the next level, helping you to stay switched on, focused and power through your busy schedule.
With 600mg functional mushroom extracts in every cup, Ground Shroom Coffee was created to optimise your natural energy production – giving you the amazing taste of premium coffee but minus the caffeine jitters and mid-afternoon slump.
Ground coffee typically has a richer and more luxurious taste compared with instant coffee, as the ground coffee beans brew for some time to release their naturally aromatic flavour.
One of the most common questions we are asked is "does mushroom coffee taste like mushrooms?", after all the thought of a mushroom flavoured drink certainly isn't for everyone. However, we add medicinal mushrooms for their health benefits - not their flavour. The mushroom extracts are neutral in flavour so the overall taste is of a premium ground dark roast coffee.
We source our coffee from the vast mountains of Guatemala and Costa Rica, where it is sustainably harvested from small Organic farms. Just as you'd expect with Arabica coffee, growing high in the mountains creates a complex flavour profile only made possible by the unique microclimate the beans are grown in. The result is a smooth, nutty, aromatic and rich ground coffee with a subtle hint of cocoa.
Health Benefits of Ground Mushroom Coffee 🧐
Medicinal mushrooms have been utilised for thousands of years within Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Perhaps one of the first foods to be praised as a superfood, they have been used to make teas, tonics and tinctures to cure common ailments and promote overall wellness.
These days, the goodness of medicinal mushrooms can be harnessed in mushroom powders and supplements - better yet, they can be enjoyed as part of your existing routine within Ground Mushroom Coffee.
The health benefits of Ground Mushroom Coffee come from a combination of medicinal mushrooms and Organic Arabica coffee. Each contains unique plant compounds and health optimising nutrients.
Here are just some of the health benefits of ground mushroom coffee.
- Better Energy Levels - Coffee and medicinal mushrooms work in synergy to enhance natural energy production, which is released sustainably to help you feel energised for longer.
Immune System Support- Antioxidants found in coffee together with Triterpenes, compounds found in medicinal mushrooms, work to bolster the immune system at a cellular level.
- Enhance Brain Health - Known as Nootropics, medicinal mushrooms are renowned for their brain boosting benefits. Studies have shown that their use can help to reduce the risk of age-related brain conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia.
Manage Stress & Anxiety - Some people find that too much coffee increases their stress and anxiety levels. However, the addition of medicinal mushrooms in ground mushroom coffee introduces adaptogens - which help to balance hormones and alleviate stress and anxiety symptoms.
How to Choose the Best Medicinal Mushroom Extracts 🍄
When choosing a mushroom extract powder or mushroom coffee, it is important to note that there can be a huge variance in quality and potency of ingredients.
The best mushroom coffee and supplements will be made using organic mushrooms derived from real fruiting bodies, which are lab tested for maximum potency.
✅ Organically Sourced from Real Fruiting Bodies
We source all of our mushrooms directly from small Organic family farms in China. This is where 85% of the world's medicinal mushrooms come from. Sourcing our mushrooms from China means that we can grow them from their natural substrate to bring you the best quality mushroom extracts. China is currently the only place in the world where you can source mushroom extracts derived from real mushroom fruiting bodies which are also certified Organic.
Mushrooms grown outside of China utilise grain substrates like rice and oat, which are not naturally involved in the mushroom lifecycle and result in poorer quality extracts. They also introduce non-mushroom ingredients to the end product, diluting the potency of the mushroom extracts.
What are the Side Effects of Ground Mushroom Coffee?
Mushroom coffee is a relatively new concept and so it is understandable that people would have their reservations before trying it.
Aside from thinking that it is made with mushrooms instead of coffee, or that it might taste of mushrooms (!) - many people also worry that there will be side effects to drinking mushroom coffee.
The good news is that there is no evidence to show that mushroom coffee has any adverse effects in healthy individuals.
As coffee contains caffeine, mushroom coffee may be unsuitable for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, children and those who are sensitive to caffeine.
However, there is no reason why mushroom coffee would impose any more of a risk than regular coffee. Of course, it should also be noted that mushroom coffee brings the added health benefits of medicinal mushrooms too.
