But first, coffee.

In order to keep my mind in balance I have had to give up a lot of things, from hard alcohol to gluten to sugar. I absolutely refuse to give up coffee. The joy of coffee gets me out of bed every morning and my sister and I love to find the best coffeeshops in each new city we visit.

However, regular coffee makes me anxious, my thoughts race and my hands get twitchy. I didn’t even realize until after I stopped drinking it for a couple of weeks how much it was affecting me. Sometimes I drink decaf but I do like the extra pickup in the morning so that wasn’t really working for me.

I kept seeing these cool images online of people in the forest drinking mushroom coffee. Finally I decided to try it, and now I won’t drink anything else. Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee is made from different types of mushrooms (not the magic kind) mixed with coffee powder. They also make blends of just mushrooms without coffee, and I love their mushroom hot cocoa. The combination of the mushrooms with the coffee improves the acidity and makes you awake and focused without being jittery or anxious. I’m always surprised after I drink it that I sit and do focused work for hours without getting distracted.

Mushrooms have long been known to be amazing for mental health. Some historians believe that mushrooms helped us gain consciousness! The flavor of the mushroom coffee is really good. Sometimes I crave a rich coffee flavor so I go out and get a decaf cappuccino, but on a daily basis I don’t miss regular coffee at all. I do wish that Four Sigmatic might sell the coffee in more bulk, but the small packets are nice to throw in my purse or take on a weekend trip. I’ve gotten my entire family hooked!

    Hi, I throughly enjoyed your post about mushroom coffee. I heard about it for sometime but I haven’t tried it yet. After reading your post I will be trying it very soon.

    I’ve read that they use reishi and chaga mushrooms. I’ve heard that they really help reduce stress. Have you noticed it helping to reduce stress?

    Thank-you so much sharing this information. It’s helped make up my mind to try it as soon as possible.

    I drink coffee a lot and I really would love to try some mushroom coffee. I actually try losing fat and do you think should I drink it before or after my bodybuilding routine? Does it work differently than a regular coffee?

      I’ve heard that drinking coffee before a workout can help out, and I think this would be a great choice since you won’t feel jittery or distracted during bodybuilding.

    I love coffee! I recently went on a detox because I was feeling like I had too much caffeine in my life and have truly missed just the taste of coffee so much! I have been concerned about the effects it gives me… the anxiety, stress, heart racing. I think I would like to give mushroom coffee a try. I don’t like mushrooms, does it taste like mushroom flavored coffee? Or does it taste just like coffee? I didn’t have any idea that mushrooms were good for mental health either!

    Wow! Great post…I had no idea that this product even existed. I am a coffee addict as well, but I do not want to give it up. I think that I would like to try this, for back up or for that second cup of the day.
    Have you ever tried Bulletproof coffee with this product?

    • Laurel July 13, 2017 2:24 am

      I have tried blending the coffee with butter or with Bulletproof oil…it works great!

        Yay! Thank you 🙂 I get super buzzed with BPC and “regular” caffeine products, so this will probably give all those nice effects from MCT oil without the buzz!

    Sounds so good I’ll try some soon. Mushrooms are amazing!
