The Latest Food Craze Could be Mushroom Coffee

1Would you Dare to Try?

The innovative fungi coffee costs 15 euros (that’s $21.50) for a 10 pack. There are other mixtures too like Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi and Chaga Elixir Mushroom Mix.

Food Republic reports the coffee is made by liquefying and drying mushrooms, then combining this extract with coffee beans and other all-natural ingredients. Predictably, the fungi coffee resonates well with millennials, with both the brand and its hashtag receiving a pretty insane reception on social media.

A new company called Four Sigmatic has created a mushroom coffee product, claiming it boosts brainpower, increases productivity, and melts away stress with extra special nutrients and minerals not found in your standard coffee. Each cup contains 40mg of caffeine, which is about half as much as a cup of regular coffee.

Whether mushroom coffee will become as mainstream as shower beers or over-the-top milkshakes, we’ll have to wait and see. But the bigger question is … would you dare to try?
