How To Make Mushroom Coffee

Mushroom coffee is a relatively new trend in the world of health and wellness, right alongside mushroom hot chocolate. Not only is it a convenient addition to your morning routine, but it's packed with a variety of health benefits, including increased energy, gut health, improved focus, and enhanced immunity.  

What Does Mushroom Coffee Taste Like? 

Mushroom coffee has a unique taste that can vary depending on the type of mushroom used. Some people describe the taste as earthy and slightly nutty, while others say it has a woodsy or mushroom-like flavor. The taste of mushroom coffee can also vary depending on the type of coffee bean used, as well as any additional ingredients added to the brew.  

When made with a high-quality coffee bean and a small amount of mushroom powder, mushroom coffee can be quite delicious. The mushroom powder adds a subtle earthy flavor that complements the taste of coffee. Some people also add sweetener to their mushroom coffee to balance out the earthy flavor of the mushrooms.

Here's a quick guide on how to make your own mushroom coffee at home: 


  • 1 cup of coffee (brewed to your preference) 
  • ½ tsp of mushroom powder (Eversio Wellness’ REJUVENATE, AWAKEN, or BALANCE blends) 
  • Milk/creamer of choice (optional) 
  • 1 tsp of sweetener of choice (optional) 
  • Pinch of cinnamon (optional) 


  1. Brew a cup of coffee according to your preference 
  2. While the coffee is still hot, add ½ tsp of mushroom powder to the cup 
  3. Use a spoon (or a frother for an even smoother blend) to mix the mushroom powder into the coffee until it is fully dissolved 
  4. Optional: Blend in your milk or creamer of choice (best when using a frother for a creamier taste) 
  5. Optional: Add 1 tsp of sweetener of choice and a pinch of cinnamon to your coffee 
  6. Enjoy your delicious and healthy mushroom coffee! 

Don’t feel limited by this simple recipe! Mushroom extract powders can be added to your café lattes, espresso coffees, and can be made whether you have a drip system or a French press coffee maker.

Turkey Tail is known for its immune-boosting properties [1], Cordyceps for its energy-enhancing effects [2], and Lion's Mane for its cognitive benefits [3]. Together, this mushroom extract blend can help support overall health, boost energy levels, and sharpen cognitive function, making it your brain and body’s best support for overall health.

Only the Best Quality Ingredients: Mushroom Extract Blends + Coffee 

Although the market for medicinal mushrooms is wide, it is important to be mindful of what is inside of the products you are buying. Eversio Wellness uses ONLY the fruiting body of mushrooms, as opposed to the mycelium or spores. The fruiting body is the part of the functional mushroom that contains the highest concentration of beneficial compounds, such as beta-glucans, polysaccharides, and ergosterols.

Full spectrum is often advertised as a beneficial aspect of the product by some companies, but, under the surface, this means that the product is watered down, and you’d need to consume much more of it to achieve the same benefits as you would from a product containing 100% fruiting body.  

Eversio Wellness ensures that you are getting the maximum health benefits from the mushrooms when you add their mushroom extract to your coffee. For the best results, pair our functional mushrooms with organic coffee brands.  

Wake up and unlock your potential with your morning mushroom coffee and experience a new way to start your day.
