This company is humorously witty and founded by a mom who wanted to drink coffee while nursing…but also wanted calm. Lowering my caffeine intake started very much the same way, so I really related to this story! Rasa Coffee has become a favorite and comes in three blends, some which do contain a bit of actual coffee mixed in for balance: Calm Energy, Lively Energy and Happy Energy. Dandelion root and roasted chicory give it that coffee flavor and ingredients like cacao and cinnamon make it extra delicious.
What makes Rasa so nice, though, are the special adaptogenic herbs in it that actually benefit the adrenal system and help our bodies respond better to stress. WIN!
Rasa is perfect for someone with a French Press as the grounds are pressed in the same way.
2. Dandy Blend
This blend is made from just five ingredients: extracts of barley, rye, dandelion, chicory and beet roots. Dandy Blend has a bit of natural sweetness and can even help ease stomach upset. It’s an ‘instant’ powder…just stir into hot water and you’re good to go!
3. Four Sigmatic (my fave subscription!)
This dark roast organic and fair trade instant coffee does have a little bit of caffeine (half a cup of coffee worth) mixed with mushrooms (!) – specifically, lions mane – a type of mushroom, not actual lion hair ;)) and chaga mushroom. The lions mane is considered some of the best brain food for focus and chaga supports the immune system. Together, Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee supports productivity, focus, and creativity.
It’s the product that taste the most similar to regular coffee, in my opinion.
