Is Mushroom Coffee Any Good?

Is Mushroom Coffee Any Good?

Mushroom coffee is a delicious alternative to the usual cup you might have every morning. As a rising star in the wellness industry, these nutrient-rich blends are perfect for folks that are turning away from caffeinated beverages and want to try something a bit more natural.

What Makes Mushrooms Good for Coffee?

They are rich in a wide range of support areas. Antioxidants are common for most coffee brands to have a strong well of, and a great deal of immune support. Where mushrooms can really set themselves apart is reducing caffeine content in your coffee. Having one cup of your average coffee vs a mushroom coffee with cordyceps and maybe half the added caffeine can have a similar impact with a much less diet-tasking blend. 

While their flavors do have some earth tones to them, it's well worth experiencing a new blend that might have some pros/cons compared to what you usually drink every day.

Are there other alternatives to normal coffee beans?

Apart from coffee beans you'll find at the store, there's not much variety when it comes to coffee blends outside of mushrooms. Capsules are popular now, which are a whole lot like caffeine pills in some blends, and might be more vitamin rich in others. Take some time to really evaluate what your needs are out of a morning supplement/what you're getting out of your usual cup of coffee.

What Makes Medicinal Mushrooms in Coffee Great?

Medicinal mushrooms are some of the world's most impactful superfoods for boosting daily function. They offer a wide range of health-related benefits, inlcuding:

  • Stress relief
  • Energy boosting
  • Higher immune function
  • Stronger heart health
  • Better cognitive performance

Without caffeine, mushrooms like cordyceps are aptly equipped to refill your well of energy and avoid getting jitters.

Are Medicinal Mushrooms Safe?

Absolutely! They have zero hallucinogenic or otherwise dangerous properties. Even in excess use (beyond the recommended serving sizes), the vast majority experience little-to-no side effects.

How Can I Try Medicinal Mushrooms?


Coffee is a common starting point for folks that are looking to try medicinal mushrooms without breaking the bank. Raw medicinal mushrooms can get expensive, and this is an easy place to start with something unknown to you in a familiar medium like coffee. Unfortunately, if you're switching over to mushroom coffee to avoid caffeine, you're usually going to be out of luck. Most blends at least have some caffeine, although it is often lower content than most other blends of normal coffee beans.


As referenced before, capsules are a popular new iteration to the mushroom market. They are fast-acting, offer a compact solution to getting mushrooms into your diet daily, and create quick results for seeing if mushrooms are right for you.

Still, capsules can just feel like tasting medicine in the morning for some people.They might be the fastest-acting supplements, but they are pretty uneventful when it comes to getting daily support.


Trying mushroom-powered gummies is a great place to start for easily accessible, wallet-friendly deals on some of the most powerful superfoods in the world.

As each blend gets worked into your diet daily, you can really start to see a major difference in how you feel, look, and perform.

Luckily, it's easier than ever to get started.
