Think Whole Bean Coffee


How we cracked the code on whole bean coffee

Elevate your average cup of joe to a functional brew. The same taste you love, made with 100% organic and fair trade Arabica coffee beans plus functional ingredients like chaga and lion’s mane for brain power without the crash. Replace the side-effects from regular coffee (crash, jitters, belly ache, anyone?) with high-dose extracts of functional mushrooms and adaptogens to power through any day with energy, focus, and ease. 

Why it took us 10 years to make a whole bean mushroom coffee

Love mushroom coffee? And customizing your grind size to brew your way? You’ve been asking us for nearly a decade to make a whole bean mushroom coffee. We apologize in advance because we truly thought it was not possible. We were wrong.

Our central goal is to offer you the most delicious, easy to use, and beneficial products possible. We focus on real, whole food, 100% organic ingredients that have each been 3rd party lab tested for quality and cleanliness. This also means using fair-trade coffee beans sourced from family farms and cooperatives, all from places coffee is naturally grown and produced. When it comes to our functional mushrooms, it means using only real mushroom fruiting bodies, log-grown or wild-harvested, and dual-extracted. We want you to believe in our products as much as we do, and as much as our ancestors have loved and revered them for thousands of years. 

We didn’t think it was possible to keep up with our promises (above) while making a whole bean coffee. See, the potent functional mushroom and adaptogen extracts we use are concentrated powders. In order to combine extracted powders onto a whole coffee bean, we thought we would have to use agents, adhesives, or adherents. This is a strong no-go. We’re a health food company, after all. So, we apologized for years and told you that unfortunately, a whole bean option with our standards was simply not possible.

How we finally cracked the code on whole bean coffee

And then one day everything changed. After years of working extensively with our coffee roasters, we discovered the perfect combination of time and temperature to master whole bean mushroom coffee. Figures that nature gives us all the answers. :) So how did we do it? We roast the beans and then at the perfect alignment of time and temperature, we coat them with organic lion’s mane mushroom extract and organic chaga extract. No agents, adhesives or adherents involved. Just 3 powerful ingredients you know and love: arabica coffee, lion’s mane, and chaga. That’s it! 

The quick and dirty: Made with organic, fair trade, single-origin extra dark roasted Arabica coffee beans, ready to grind for however you brew. No binding agents or adhesives. Just beans, lion’s mane, and chaga extracts. Whole bean mushroom coffee is the most customizable coffee we’ve ever made. Espresso, cold brew, moka, or pour-over, you decide your grind size and enjoy the way you love for a crash-free brew that adds a productive oomph to your day.

TL;DR: Press play instead:
