Laird Superfood announces organic ground coffee with functional mushrooms
Laird Superfood has added Dark Roast and Medium Roast Ground Coffee with Functional Mushrooms to its popular lineup of organic Peruvian coffees.
Laird Superfood’s new coffee blend is infused with the extracts of three of co-founder Laird Hamilton’s favourite organic functional mushrooms: Cordyceps, Chaga and Lion’s Mane.
Emerging science reports functional mushrooms may help support overall wellness, says the company.
Cordyceps: A mushroom that is loved by high-endurance performers of all genres, Cordyceps has been studied for its effects on the body’s production of ATP.
Chaga: Considered the “King of Mushrooms,” Chaga has been referred to as “Chaga Gold ” for its valuable properties.
Lion’s Mane: Lion’s Mane is an edible mushroom native to North America, Europe, and Asia. Polysaccharides, specifically the beta-glucans, are what makes this mushroom (and others) special.
The Peruvian Arabica coffee beans are grown at a high altitude of more than 4,000 feet so that with lower oxygen levels, the beans grow slower and denser.
“The organic coffee beans that we use are from a trusted Peruvian coffee grower in the Andes,” said Laird Hamilton, big-wave surfer and co-founder of Laird Superfood. “The opportunity to go to the coffee farm and see how they grow the beans, how they harvest them, and how they dry them was an amazing experience. Each farmer farms by hand in this incredibly fertile environment high in the Andes. It proved to me why they are rated as the best beans in the world. They pair epically with the power of functional mushrooms to create a powerful morning cup. I don’t know how you can grow better beans.”
