No Ration provide for Mushroom to Coffee
Posted by positive-health on Sep 01, 2016
I don't mind bitter coffee, as all you need to do is sweeten to taste, and everyone knows that instant coffee is not a winner when it comes down to the best of coffee. However, the reason to purchase this brand is for the Reishi and Cordyceps. I find it unusual that this company refuses to indicate how much is in the product, and at what strength, which some of us need to know due to our medical conditions. For all we know, the "kick" we receive from this product is solely in the caffeine. Also, I read in another response where a consumer wrote the company about wanting to know how much mushroom is in the product, of which Madre Labs refused to provide the information saying that it was their secret. Well, I think we've heard this story line before of which it usually ends up being a snake oil salesman pitch for a product that ends up being nothing more than snakeoil.
Not good flavor

This is a disappointment. I like the CocoCeps, but this CafeCeps tastes terrible.

Didn't like the taste
The one star says it all

I would have given it 0 stars. We couldn't stand the bitter taste, one use and it went literally down the drain. I guess it's all in the taste, bought it because of the reviews, but we thought it tasted horrible.

Decided to order this as a healthy replacement for the instant coffee I drink at the office and had high expectations due to the great reviews. It was a total disappointment. I knew it was going to taste different than coffee, but I wasn't expecting the BLEH taste. It took me several hours to remove the terrible aftertaste from my mouth, I didn't like this at all.
I wanted to like as I thought it would be healthier but .....

this beverage really didn't do it for me. I wanted to cut out regular coffee but the taste was not that great. I am thinking maybe this type of mushroom is just not beneficial for me.....
Doesn't taste like a coffee

I am not a fan of instant coffee anyway, but I noticed no benefits and it tastes bad and mushroomy.
Not so good

Strong aftertaste of mushrooms. Not what I like my coffe to taste of.
It's really bad!

Words cannot describe how bad this is but I will try. This coffee is thick, (I used 8 oz. of water - it calls for 4-8 oz.)and it has a bad flavor and mouth feel. I'm thankful it was just a free sample and not something I spent my money on!
