What is mushroom coffee?

Mushroom coffee is a regular black coffee mixed with powdered medicinal mushrooms. Despite being made with fungus, the coffee does not have a typical mushroomy taste, as the species used in the powder have a more muted, earthy flavour compared to portobello or white button mushrooms. Mushroom coffee is made using mushrooms that are picked, dried and then ground into a powder.

The fungi most commonly used to produce mushroom powder include cordyceps, chaga and lion’s mane. Usually, one or more of the species are mixed with instant coffee of the variety typically sold in single serving packets.
