Once in a while, when trying out new stuff I run across something wonderful. This is my all time favorite find on iherb. The flavor is unique, coffee-like, malt-like, hard to describe, reminds me somewhat of "Postum" which is no longer on the market but which I enjoyed as a child. For whatever reason, it was LOVE at first taste for me. I mix a scoop with 5 oz hot water and 3 oz of almond milk and make this my afternoon snack. I've traded out my 200 calorie snack for this 45 calories of pure comfort and find it so much more satisfying. I am very caffeine sensitive, but it has never given me jitters or disturbed my sleep. Although the first ingredient is instant coffee, I am guessing there isn't much caffeine in the 2.2 grams of product per scoop. Yet, it does help me stay alert during those sleepy afternoon hours. I don't know much about the health benefits of Cordyceps and Reishi mushroom, but that's my next research project. Cost wise, it is less than 30 cents per cup. While spending $4 or $5 for Starbucks may be worth it for some folks, including me once in a while, I could not be more excited about this find.

this has strong bitter taste which is good but still doesn't do the job of a regular strong cup of coffee,neither do i feel the effect of the Reishi or Cordyceps even in larger dosages and i do familiar with their effect but this product does not deliver it at all,sorry...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews

My doctor recommended "mushroom coffee "and told me that it was an "acquired taste." After trying it, it wasn't bad. So far I have used it with soy creamer but want to try with almond milk too. I definitely notice that I don't have the coffee urges that I would have several times a day. She told me that I drink too much coffee so hopefully I can stick with this.

I park this at my office and make a quick cup now and then. Since I've never found an instant coffee that makes a really good cup (including Via) this fills the bill when I don't want to hike to Starbucks. Obviously, if it weren't for the shrooms I wouldn't bother but that gives it enough of an edge.

There is needless waste of a plastic spoon in every pack. Why not just use a teaspoon (which holds the same amount). I wrote to Madre labs suggesting removing the scoop was a win for environment and cost saving. They just sent some lame standard reply. I encourage others to ask them to ditch the spoon as we don't really need a waste product that will be around for 1,000 years in every single pack. I really enjoy the energy and mental focus from this product and hope they can make the packaging more environmentally friendly.

Not something special, didn't feel difference from regular instant coffee (not a flavor or energy)

I ordered this with high hopes as a replacement for my usual coffee but sadly The taste I'd like cheap instant coffee which I can't even disguise by having half of this and half normal good quality coffee the taste sadly let's it down but I will finish the bag as there are some good ingredients in the product I'm sure this is just done to individual tastes as I read so many rave reviews about this product but have found that I don't like the taste

Pikakahviksi ok, muuten maku ei ole kummoinen. Pakkaus riittää pitkään.

Great to see such an valuable ingredient (reishi) added to a coffee! The taste is not as great as the longreen version of this coffee which even has very convenient single serving packets for it.. If you liked this review please click "yes" below. More reviews can be found on my profile.
