Their range includes a mushroom coffee which the good people at Wunderground tells us is conveniently great for human consumption. From brain power to body benefits and even the occasional anxiety annihilator, the consumption of mushrooms is a speeding train of popularity. If you’re not yet onboard, maybe try to get yourself a box of Wunderground.
