There are lots of ways to get your morning caffeine fix. Now, Finland-based Four Sigmatic has an unconventional option with a product that looks, smells, and tastes a lot like a regular coffee—but with mushrooms.
Food Republic reports that mushroom coffee is made by combining Arabica coffee beans with mushrooms that have been dried, boiled, and liquefied. The resulting "coffee", gets an extra antioxidant boost from the mushrooms as well as added minerals like zinc that counteract normal coffee’s acidity, according to Four Sigmatic founder Tero Isokauppila. The result is a milder brew that’s easy on the stomach.
