It’s Official—We’re On the Mushroom Coffee Craze

There’s nothing like a cup of coffee to get your morning started. Whether you need a boost of caffeine before a long day of work or just enjoy having a warm beverage with your breakfast, coffee will get the job done. However, if you’re an avid coffee drinker like myself, you know that daily dose of joe also comes with some major downsides.

For starters, caffeine can mess with your sleep schedule. While you might enjoy the extra alertness during the day, it can be frustrating when this sensation carries on through the night. And, if you have too much caffeine, you’ll be left with an anxious, jittery feeling that’s hard to shake — especially if you’ve become dependent on coffee.


If you love starting your day with coffee, but don’t enjoy the side effects, finding a compromise can be difficult. Skipping coffee leaves you tired and dull, while drinking it makes you jittery and anxious. So, what can you do? That’s where MUD\WTR comes in.

MUD\WTR: A Healthier Coffee Alternative

When it comes to healthy yet delicious alternatives to coffee, MUD\WTR delivers. Using a blend of organic herbs, spices and mushrooms, it provides improved energy, focus and immune system health. Its top coffee alternative is the morning ritual starter kit, which features a flavorful masala chai spice blend. Ultimately, mushroom coffee gives you the boost you need to get through your day — without the jitters, insomnia or dependency. Let’s take a closer look at the unique benefits of this superdrink.


1) Less Caffeine

One of the biggest reasons why people cut out coffee is to lower their caffeine intake. While caffeine may help you stay awake during the day, it’s not without consequences. Here are a few possible side effects:


  • Headaches
  • Anxiety and shakiness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dehydration
  • Stomach problems
  • Trouble sleeping


From nervousness and headaches to digestive and sleep issues, there’s no shortage of downsides to caffeine. As you consume coffee, it’s normal for your caffeine tolerance to increase, meaning you’ll need more and more coffee to feel alert and energetic. A lot of people — myself included — have even developed a dependency on the beverage.


Whether you’re trying to reduce caffeine or stop a coffee dependency, mushroom coffee can help. This superdrink has 30 mg of caffeine, which is just 1/7 of the caffeine found in a typical drip coffee. This amount is enough to heighten your senses and leave you calm and sharp, without all the negative health effects. You’ll have the alertness you need to get through your day, but still be able to fall peacefully asleep when nighttime hits.

2) Healthy Ingredients

When it comes to ingredients, black coffee features a decent amount of nutrients, including potassium, niacin and magnesium. Of course, these nutrients are paired with caffeine (and its slew of side effects). Not to mention, if you can’t stand the taste of black coffee on its own, add-ons like cream and sugar can make the beverage less healthy.


Mushroom coffee manages to deliver a delicious flavor while using healthy, nutritious ingredients. A cup from the morning ritual starter kit is packed with the following superfoods:



  • Lion’s Mane: These mushrooms, named after their resemblance of a lion’s mane, have properties known to boost memory and focus.
  • Chaga: Chaga mushrooms are filled with phytonutrients that are beneficial to immune system health.
  • Reishi: These mushrooms are popular in Asia for their immune-strengthening properties.
  • Cordyceps: Cordyceps acts as a natural energy supplement and can improve stamina and performance.
  • Turmeric and cinnamon: These spices have antioxidants that can improve different functions, including mood, inflammation and digestive health.
  • Cacao: In addition to providing a rich, chocolate flavor, cacao triggers endorphins that boost mood and energy.


All the mushrooms — which are organically grown and locally sourced in California — are hand-picked for their physical and cognitive health benefits. They’re then paired with a unique spice blend that elevates flavor while providing essential antioxidants. The result is a nutritious coffee alternative that impacts everything from mood and energy to the immune and digestive systems.

3) Taste

A major part of the coffee drinking experience is taste. There’s a reason why many of us add sugar, milk and flavorings to our coffee: we want it to taste good. Ultimately, if you don’t like a substance’s taste, you’re not going to add it to your daily routine — no matter how healthy it is. Fortunately, mushroom coffee delivers in the flavor department.


The unique selection of mushrooms and spices are mixed with a masala chai blend, culminating in a rich, earthy flavor profile. Imagine a marriage between chai and spice — you’ll enjoy hints of sharp spice interspersed with warm, chocolate tones. In addition to a robust flavor, the superdrink offers the following perks:


  • 100% organic ingredients
  • Keto friendly
  • Low calorie
  • Sugar free


Depending on your personal preferences, you can drink it on its own, dilute it with your favorite milk or use a frother to create a lighter, creamier texture. The choice is yours!

Quitting Caffeine? Try Mushroom Coffee!

If you’ve ever tried to quit caffeine before, you know it’s easier said than done. Many coffee alternatives don’t offer the energy boost found in caffeine, while others lack flavor. Mushroom coffee, however, manages to solve these problems while also providing health benefits. Through a combination of superfoods, it improves energy and focus without causing jitters or keeping you up at night. And, thanks to the masala chai blend, it tastes delicious.


Ultimately, if you’re trying to reduce your coffee intake, the MUD\WTR morning ritual starter kit is a great place to start. Each starter kit comes with thirty servings of mushroom coffee, a complimentary frother, and creamer and sweetener samples. Start your health journey by ordering now!
