Welcome to GetMojo, where we do the research, so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best mushroom coffees on the market.
Food and drink trends change like the weather. Take mushroom coffee. If you’ve never heard of it, the idea might baffle and intrigue you. And even if you have, you’re probably eager to hear which brands and types are the most popular. So don’t go anywhere, we’ve got you covered. We’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
The Front Runner
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee
Four Sigmatic is hands down one of, if not the most popular, mainstream mushroom coffee brand. And although you can buy it in numerous different ground forms, we’d recommend the simple, on-the-go, just-add-water instant packets. This brand is renowned for its “no ‘shroomy taste”, with these organic, fair trade instant packets actually containing around half the amount of caffeine of a regular cup of coffee. Popular mushroom types include Lion’s Mane and Chaga, as well as Cordyceps and Chaga.
The Caffeine-Free Pick
Rasa Herbal Coffee
If you’re looking to get your flavor-filled coffee kicks, but also need to avoid caffeine, then the original Rasa Herbal Coffee alternative might be the one for you. This french press style coffee contains 12 Herbs, 7 Adaptogens, and 2 Mushrooms: reishi and chaga. But it’s the energizing adaptogens that people go back for, with Rasa coffee famously containing more than any other brand on the market. It may lack caffeine, but consumers rave about its purportedly stimulating effects.
Naturealm Mushroom Coffee Creamer
If you’re not quite ready to take the mushroom coffee plunge yet, then a coffee creamer could be a good compromise - as it can be added to your regular cup of joe. This mushroom coffee creamer contains a variety of mushroom extracts - including Maitake, Lion's Mane and Cordyceps - as well as tasty things like coconut milk powder, cocoa powder and cinnamon. We love how versatile this creamer is too, allowing you to up the mushroom game of your smoothies and protein shakes, as well as coffee.
The Pod Coffee
SOLLO Chaga Coffee Pods
Pod coffee is super convenient, and many will be glad to know that mushroom coffee has already made the leap to K cup-like form. These pods from SOLLO champion the nutrient-dense Chaga mushroom - commonly referred to as the king of mushrooms - along with 100% Arabica coffee beans. And of course, being in pod form, they offer non-nonsense brewing at the click of a button. SOLLO also boasts that these pods are widely compatible with lots of Keurig machines.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other mushroom coffees that you might want to consider:
Sun Alchemy Mushroom Coffee
La Republica Reishi Mushroom Powder
GANOHERB Reishi Mushroom Coffee
The Other Pod Coffee
Super Organics Energy Boost Coffee Brew Cups
Due to their popularity, we wanted to include another pod pick, this one from Super Organics, and containing a wider variety of superfood-branded ingredients. This coffee blend includes Maca and Guarana extracts, as well as Cordyceps Mushrooms. This is perhaps a good pick for those who want to explore the potential benefits of mushroom coffee, but don’t quite want to go full fungi just yet. And as with our previous pick, the convenience of pod coffee is a great bonus.
So which mushroom coffee should you buy? Well, as we mentioned, if you’re a little apprehensive, thankfully, there are quite a few products out there that allow you to dip into the world of mushroom coffee, which is a great option to have. If you’re looking to dive right in, it may just be a case of trying out different options until you find one that works for you. Perhaps start with the coffee creamer first, and go from there.
