3 Coffee alternatives for those who can’t handle caffeine
People love drinking coffee, myself included. Coffee lovers are willing to spend A LOT of money on coffee. We have such a profound cultural devotion to coffee, it’s hard to imagine a world without it.
But coffee has its drawbacks, which is why coffee alternatives are growing in popularity. Like other stimulants, coffee can cause stress, panic and anxiety in those with a low tolerance.
MUD\WTR is a dirt-like powder that, like many of the newer coffee alternatives, includes a blend of mushrooms including chaga, reishi, and cordyceps, which are said to help support energy levels and overall well-being. You have to mix the powder, which is a chai-cacao combo that tastes like a cinnamon-y mocha, with hot water (not boiling water). MUD\WTR is probably the most accurately titled product out there. If you don’t stir it properly into your hot water, you’ll find that there will be a layer of mud at the bottom of your cup. (This is why MUD\WTR comes with a rechargeable stirrer that they call the MUD Whip.)
Goldmine Adaptogen Powder
What are adaptogens? The term refers to various herbs that purportedly help the body destress, some of the most popular of which include ginseng, ashwagandha, maca root, and a variety of mushrooms traditionally used in Eastern medicine and now beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow types. The ones included in these coffee alternatives are said to help cancel out the negative effects of caffeine—the crazy rush, the crash, and the shakiness. Goldmine is more of a coffee additive than a coffee alternative, and just like with MUD\WTR, it integrates chaga, reishi, and cordyceps mushrooms.
Four Sigmatic Ground Mushroom Coffee
Four Sigmatic actually does have coffee in it, but, like the others, it also has mushrooms—namely chaga and lion’s mane—that the brand claims help with keeping energy levels smooth and steady. It comes in a variety of different applications; you can get it ground, as a Keurig K Cup, or in instant coffee form. The ground coffee with lion’s mane was very smooth and very flavorful, and if you follow the directions on the package, then you’re in for a delicious cup of alternative coffee.
