New beverages boast functional ingredients including mushrooms, probiotics, vitamins and phytochemicals.
Laird Superfood, Inc. is debuting a new organic ground Peruvian coffee with functional mushrooms. Available in dark and medium roast, the coffee blend is slow roasted in small batches with Peruvian Arabica coffee beans. The beans are grown at an altitude of more than 4,000 feet so the beans grow slower and denser, which provides a more dynamic flavor profile, Laird Superfood said. The coffee is then infused with three functional mushrooms: Cordyceps, Chaga and Lion’s Mane. Laird Superfood’s organic ground coffee with functional mushrooms is ground to a medium-fine to fine grind size, compatible with pour-overs, drip coffees and espresso.
