The word Reishi can be translated as "supernatural being of great power," which is a pretty accurate description of the effects that this mushroom has on your immune system. The Reishi mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and is now starting to gain popularity in Western cultures because of its many health benefits. In this article, we will provide you with a recipe so that you can make your own super immune-boosting coffee at home!
- Coffee grounds - you can use any type of coffee, but a dark roast is recommended
- Reishi extracts - 1/2 teaspoon per serving
- Sweetener to taste (optional)
- Coconut milk, nut or oat milk (optional)
You have two options when it comes to the coffee you use for this recipe. The first is using a standard brew, but with the Reishi extracts mixed in before brewing and the second is using a cold drip method that steeps longer than normal. Whichever option you choose, make sure to use a high-quality coffee.
You can add the Reishi extracts in before you brew your coffee by following these two steps. First, add a 1/2 teaspoon of Reishi extracts and put it in the filter along with some ground beans (you may need more depending on how strong you want the coffee). Then, pour your hot water over the mixture and let it steep for about five minutes before pouring.
The second option is to use a cold drip (or Japanese) method of brewing that will produce much more intense flavours than normal. To do so you need to mix a 1/2 teaspoon of Reishi extracts in with some ground coffee (or use a paper filter) and then pour cold water over the top. You will need to let it steep for about an hour before pouring, but your patience is rewarded with a richly flavoured cup of coffee that packs more punch than usual!
