Four Sigmatic makes three types of the fungus-fueled coffee -- Mushroom Coffee with Lions Mane, Mushroom Coffee with Cordyceps, and Mushroom Green Coffee -- that come in small packets that you mix into hot water. It's basically powdered instant coffee that's blended with mushroom extract and other ingredients. The startup recommends having just two cups of mushroom coffee per day.
"Coffee is an acidic drink, which causes some people to experience stomach burn. Our solution? Adding highly alkaline-forming chaga mushroom extract to coffee, which simultaneously solves the acidity problem and results in a smoother taste," the company explains on its website. "The powerful antioxidants, anti-viral effects, and immune-boosting properties of chaga mushrooms transform your cup of Joe from an energy-boosting treat to a health-enhancing choice!"
Along with Mushroom Coffee, Four Sigmatic also offers Mushrooms Elixirs, Mushroom Hot Cacaos, and other 'shroom-filled products. It's worth noting that brewing coffee with mushrooms isn't a new practice, but it looks like more people are catching on to the combination via the Mushroom Coffee products and others. Mushroom coffee is interesting to say the least, but don't expect it replace you morning Starbucks run any time soon.
