Question Ganoderma Coffee, thoughts?


So, I've been convinced by a friend of mine to buy some of this coffee that is supposedly next to caffeine free and packed full of anti-oxidants that is made from mushrooms. Now to me it tastes pretty good but I was wondering if anyone had any comments on this stuff, good or bad?

What chemicals are being used to make it caffeine free?

It is made with mushrooms, but roasting mushrooms at too high a temp can cause nasties. As for coffee, there is a water process but it is pricey to use. Many companies still use methylene chloride and there is no way you can tell me traces do not remain.

There are many types of Ganoderma coffee in the market, overall it is fully organic.

Factors to take into consideration is which part of the mushroom they use, such as the cracked spores, mycelium or the entire fruit body.

I just drink shade grown organic coffee; takes all the worry about decaf processes, toucans and DDT out of my morning ritual. Tastes great cold brewed.
