The beverage, which is made with ground-up mushrooms and coffee beans, purportedly tastes like regular coffee while offering more benefits.

In the name of mental and physical health, more and more brands are infusing coffee with blended-up mushrooms, sparking a viral craze online.

Known simply as mushroom coffee, the beverage is “an equal mix of ground medicinal mushrooms (reishi, chaga, turkey tail, lion’s mane) and ground coffee beans,” said Emily Rubin, who is the public relations chair for the Philadelphia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as the director of clinical dietetics in the division of gastroenterology and hepatology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

“The coffee is not made from 100% mushrooms [which is] the reason why it still tastes like coffee,” she told HuffPost via email.
