Those who know me know that I’m not a coffee person. I prefer green tea which is my morning fuel I drink every morning. Sometimes I have coffee as a dessert. Mostly from Starbucks and that doesn´t really go with a healthy lifestyle.
After browsing the internet, I discovered a mushroom coffee! I learned that it has a bunch of health benefits and it really made me go for it! But the idea of drinking something that should have a taste like a fungus has discouraged me. I must say it was just my belief.
After the first sip, I didn’t taste any mushrooms, and there was no aroma of the mushroom. I was pleasantly surprised by the delicate delicious taste. I only drink coffee with milk – almond or cashew, so I added a little bit. I didn´t have to use any sugar and yet my coffee tasted sweet!
