Mushroom Coffee Is The New Way To Start Your Morning

This is not a drill: The newest food fad has people drinking coffee made out of mushrooms. And no, this is not an early April Fool’s Day prank. Courtesy of a company called Four Sigmatic, Mushroom Coffee claims to give you the benefits of caffeine without the downsides. Bustle has reached out to Four Sigmatic for comment, but received no response by press time — but for the curious, here’s what we know so far.

As most of us die-hard coffee drinkers know, drinking coffee has its benefits… except for when you drink too much. Consuming too much caffeine can lead to side effects that range from simply uncomfortable (such as an upset stomach) to actually dangerous (think chronic insomnia). That’s where Mushroom Coffee comes in: It’s here to offer a less caffeinated alternative that provides plenty of nutrients to boot.
