As a self confessed 'coffee wuss' I don't really like coffee on its own, let alone a strong cup. My preferred tipple is a latte with heap loads of caramel syrup.
However, I stumbled upon London Nootropics and was intrigued.
"Find your flow with our adaptogenic coffee blends.
Made with the highest-quality adaptogens from around the world, our blends are designed to help you flow through your day and find your flow state."
And it is all based on...mushroom coffee, yep you read that correct - mushrooms!
I tried the starter box first as it includes their three blends:
Mojo coffee – barista-style coffee, organic dual-extracted cordyceps mushroom extract, siberian ginseng, natural flavouring.
Grind coffee – barista-style coffee, organic dual-extracted lions mane mushroom extract, rhodiola rosea extract, natural flavouring.
Zen coffee – barista-style coffee, organic ashwagandha root extract, broad spectrum water-soluble CBD (0% THC), natural flavouring.
I tried just half a spoonful in the cup first in case it was too strong and that does give a lovely flavour, but I also love the whole spoonful as well - how grown up do I feel?
Each one is delicious and doesn't give that bitter coffee taste that a lot of regular blends do. All with the added bonus of having super food thingumies in as well.
It isn't as cheap as a jar of instant coffee but it certainly isn't anywhere near as expensive as a coffee from a chain coffee shop. And you get the added health benefits too.
I have been converted.
