Recipe: DIY Super Mushroom Coffee (Cordyceps, Reishi, Lion's Mane, Turkey Tail)

Mushroom Coffee is great.

It is easy to make. Great for overall wellness. And way less expensive when made at home (yes, like almost everything).

So let's breakdown a DIY Mushroom Coffee Recipe with some wonderful and wild mushrooms and a brief explanation of why each chosen mushroom makes an appearance.

First and most importantly, the recipe. 

French Press Coffee with Mushrooms Powder and a Sunflower

DIY Super Mushroom Coffee

  • 6-8 oz of fresh coffee
  • 1/3 tsp Cordyceps
  • 1/3 tsp Reishi
  • 1/3 tsp Lion's Mane
  • 1/3 tsp Turkey Tail
  • Milk or Creamer
  • Sugar, Syrup, Sweetener

Add mushrooms to empty mug. Brew coffee. Pour hot coffee over mushroom powder mix and stir until well blended. Add milk, creamer, sweetener, stir and enjoy.

Tip: Mushroom powders settle and stirring periodically can help. Or bypass all the stirring and choose to blend your hot coffee in a full blown blender... wild, but it works.

    And now for my favorite (and possibly the most boring) part. The reasoning and research behind each Super Mushroom Powder listed above.

    Cordyceps: "Energy Shroom" Cordyceps have been used for thousands of years to boost energy and support the lungs. [r, r, r, r, r]

    Cordyceps Militaris Mushrooms Raw

    Reishi: "Adaptogenic Shroom" Reishi has as many nicknames as it has benefits including restful sleep, immune support, and prebiotics. [r, r, r, r]

    Raw Reishi Mushrooms

    Lion's Mane: "Brain Shroom" Lion's Mane great claim to fame is the ability to stimulate NGF Nerve Growth Factor, effectively supporting neural plasticity [r, r, r, r]

    Turkey Tail: One of Paul Stamet's favorite mushrooms. Turkey Tail is great for gut health, which is great for the immune system. It's also packed with antioxidants. [r, r, r, r]
