Coffee trends tend to come and go like many others, from lattes and cappuccinos and flat whites becoming a popular choice. However, from the recent London Coffee Festival there was a certain coffee that became popular with the crowd..
“Medicinal mushrooms are mushrooms with therapeutic properties that have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, though not the psychedelic kind,” explains Clarissa Berry, nutritionist for DIRTEA(opens in new tab). “Mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane, and Cordyceps are packed with beneficial molecules that help increase resilience to stress, offer antioxidant protection, enhance energy levels, regulate mood, sharpen focus, and much more.”
The mushroom coffee blend is grinded mushrooms and coffee beans together to create a nutty and rich flavour, perfect for those with a strong palette. Whilst it may not be everyone’s taste, it can be a great drink to have when you have those stressful days and you need something to wind down with. Mushroom coffee, or even pure mushroom powders like Cordyceps, provide a natural, balanced energy boost without jitters and with a whole lot of other health benefits,” Clarissa says.
