Tips for brewing your Rå Hygge Whole Bean Mushroom coffee

Brewing mushroom coffee requires attention to both the coffee and mushroom components to extract the best flavor and benefits. Here's a guide on how to best brew your mushroom coffee:

  1. Choose the Right Coffee-to-Water Ratio: Start by determining the ideal coffee-to-water ratio based on your preferences and the strength of flavor you desire. A general guideline is to use about 14 to 28 grams of coffee grounds per 180 milliliters of water. Adjust this ratio according to your taste preferences.
  1. Grind Your Coffee: For optimal flavor extraction, grind your coffee beans just before brewing. Use a coarse grind for methods like a French press or a medium grind for drip coffee makers. The grind size can affect the extraction process and the overall taste of your coffee.
  1. Select Your Brewing Method: There are various brewing methods you can use for mushroom coffee, such as:
  • Drip coffee maker: Convenient and straightforward, drip coffee makers are suitable for everyday brewing.
  • French press: This method allows for full immersion brewing, resulting in a rich and flavorful cup of coffee.
  • Pour-over: Offers control over the brewing process, allowing you to customize factors like water temperature and pouring technique.
  • Aeropress: Known for its versatility and quick brewing time, Aeropress can produce a concentrated and smooth coffee.
  1. Prepare Your Water: Use clean, filtered water for brewing to ensure the best possible taste. The water temperature also plays a crucial role:
  • For pour-over and Aeropress, aim for water temperatures between 195°F and 205°F (90°C to 96°C).
  • For the French press, slightly cooler water, around 200°F (93°C), is suitable.

Please note that you can reduce the acidity of the coffee using alkaline water, which may increase the bioavailability of the mushroom coffee ingredients using living high-frequency water.

  1. Incorporate Mushroom Extract: You can add our non-alcoholic mushroom extract for further enhanced coffee. This will boost the specific health benefits of the chosen mushroom tincture. We produce reishi, lion’s mane, and chaga as non-alcoholic tinctures. The daily recommended dose is 3 ml of our extracts. Approximately three cups of coffee daily will also live up to the daily recommended dose.
  1. Brew with Care: Depending on your chosen brewing method, follow these general steps:
  • Drip coffee maker: Add water and coffee grounds to the machine and let it brew according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • French press: Add coarsely ground coffee to the French press, pour in hot water, stir, and let it steep for about 4 minutes before pressing down the plunger.
  • Pour-over: Wet the coffee filter, add coffee grounds, and slowly pour hot water in a circular motion over the grounds, allowing the coffee to bloom. Then, continue pouring until you reach the desired volume.
  • Aeropress: Add coffee grounds and hot water to the Aeropress, stir, attach the filter cap, and press the coffee into your cup.
  1. Enjoy Your Brew: Once brewed, pour your mushroom coffee into a cup and savor the rich flavors and potential health benefits it offers. You can enjoy it black or make your favorite coffee drink, just like regular coffee.

By following these steps and experimenting with different variables, such as grind size, water temperature, and brewing time, you can discover the perfect method for brewing your mushroom coffee to suit your preferences.

Our general package guideline

Grind the coffee beans for Pour-over, stamp pot, filter, or espresso. The recommended amount is about 14 grams of ground mushroom coffee per cup of coffee or 7 grams per shot of espresso a couple of times a day.

  • Filter coffee machine
  • Clean, filtered water
  1. Prepare the Coffee Maker:
  • Ensure your filter coffee machine is clean and in good working condition.
  • Place a clean filter in the coffee machine's filter basket.
  1. Measure Your Coffee:

  1. Pour and Serve:
  • Carefully remove the carafe from the coffee machine once brewing is complete.
  • Pour the freshly brewed mushroom coffee into cups or mugs and serve immediately.
  1. Enjoy Your Coffee:
