Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Reviews: THINK (ORGANIC COFFEE + LION’S MANE + CHAGA)
Four Sigmatic has combined organic, fair trade, single-origin coffee with not one, but two functional mushrooms in its THINK mushroom coffee for a morning routine with benefits.
THINK mushroom coffee was designed to fit right into your day by giving you that coffee taste and energy boost that you know and love with the additional benefits of focus and improved brain function from the functional mushrooms WITHOUT the jitters or mid-day crash most experience with regular coffee.
Four Sigmatic THINK mushroom coffee pods with Lion’s Mane are made with:
Organic Arabica Coffee Beans: custom blend of medium roasted organic, Fair-Trade, single-origin, specialty-grade Arabica coffee beans
Organic Lion’s Mane Mushroom: functional mushroom that is known to “support focus, creativity, and mental clarity resulting in more productivity”
Organic Chaga Mushroom: used for hundreds of years and known to “support immune function”
Organic Rhodiola: a super adaptogen also called “Golden Root”, is known to “support stress reduction, fight fatigue, improve brain function and productivity”
These functional mushroom coffee pods are supposed to help bring focus and productivity to your morning without the jitters and mid-day crash.
We brewed a cup of Four Sigmatic THINK mushroom coffee, and added it to a cup of ice for iced coffee on a hot and humid summer morning. Four Sigmatic recommends adding nut milk, coconut oil, or other natural sweeteners to add a little sweetness to your coffee. I personally, like my coffee black.
This is a medium roast coffee, with a deep nutty taste that isn’t bitter. I found it to taste more like a dark roast with a bold coffee flavor that wasn’t as smooth as the BALANCE coffee we tasted, but there was NO mushroom or odd taste.
Four Sigmatic coffee has about half (50mg) the caffeine as most homebrewed coffee and because of this, I would naturally expect to be less jittery and not crash like I usually do at some point during the day. I was hoping that I would still get the morning boost of energy that I have come to need/expect/enjoy with regular coffee and it didn’t let me down.
This deep dark coffee was great over ice and didn’t cause jitters for me, but I did experience the mid-day crash. This could just be me, maybe I drank too many cups, or maybe I have to continue drinking to see/feel all of the benefits? Either way, I enjoyed the coffee.
THINK coffee comes in Ground Coffee, Instant Coffee, Lattes, and Pods. SHOP NOW >>
This ground adaptogen coffee is supposed to help you get your morning coffee fix while also helping you destress without the jitters and mid-day crash.
We made a batch of cold brew coffee from our bag of Four Sigmatic BALANCE, let sit in the fridge for 24 hours, and poured a cup for breakfast. I like my cold brew black on ice, but Four Sigmatic recommends nut milk, coconut oil, or other natural sweeteners to enhance the flavor and add a touch of sweetness.
This is a medium roast coffee, with a smooth, caramel-like taste that isn’t bitter at all. And NO mushroom taste or any other odd taste from the adaptogens added, just the wonderful taste of coffee.
With about half the caffeine as most homemade coffee, I was worried that I wouldn’t get the morning boost that I was used to. And it makes sense that if you drink coffee with less caffeine, you would have fewer jitters and avoid a mid-day crash.
But can it also help you find balance and destress? To answer this question, I drank the BALANCE cold brew for about a week. During this time, I was less jittery thanks to the lower amount of caffeine and didn’t experience a huge crash in the afternoon, but I’m not sure if I felt more “balanced”.
I really liked the smooth taste and the fact that I still got my morning energy boost without the jitters and think that I may have to give it time before I really notice any sort of results.

Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Reviews: Cacao Mix with Reishi
Four Sigmatic’s Mushroom Cacao Mix, they call CHILL, is made with
Organic Reishi Mushroom: known for its “stress and immune-supporting qualities”
Organic Cacao: packed with flavonoids shown to “help lower blood pressure, improve digestion, and reduce stress”
Organic Coconut Palm Sugar: 2g for a subtle sweetness
Organic Cinnamon: known for its “antioxidant properties”
Organic Cardamom: known for its “antioxidant properties and digestion support”
This Mushroom Cacao Mix with Reishi is supposed to be your tasty new evening ritual to help you relax and unwind after a long day.
Each box of Cacao Mix includes 10 individual servings perfectly portioned for at home or on-the-go convenience.
CHILL mushroom Cacao mix is organic, gluten -and dairy-free, and plant-based with 2g of coconut sugar sweetness and Reishi to help you relax for a clean after-dinner treat with lots of benefits.
To make, just add hot water or non-dairy milk to a mug with a packet of CHILL, get cozy, and enjoy.
I don’t really have an evening ritual outside of washing my face and brushing my teeth and occasionally drink herbal tea at night while I’m working or watching TV. I try to stay away from consuming anything with sugar before I go to bed as it tends to keep me awake so I made a cup of mushroom Cacao mix shortly after dinner as a dessert drink.
When I opened the Cocao mix packet the smell of cinnamon and chocolate filled the air and I was excited to try this cup of CHILL. I filled my cup with hot water and gave it a good stir before sitting down for a guilty pleasure reality show on Netflix.
This mix tasted like a watery hot chocolate and cinnamon drink with a hint of Stevia. My husband, who is less sensitive to Stevia, didn’t taste it at all. I wanted it to be creamy and recommend adding a creamy milk of your choice to make it more like hot chocolate.
Did it make me CHILL? Short answer, yes, it did. I don’t know if it was because I drank the Cacao mix after dinner, or because it was warm and comforting, or because of the Reishi, but I did feel calm. SHOP NOW >>
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Reviews: Bottom Line
Four Sigmatic delivers coffee, plant protein powder, elixirs, and more made with functional mushrooms and adaptogens including Lion’s Maine, Chaga, Turkey Tail, Reishi, and Ashwagandha directly to your door.
We love that Four Sigmatic mushroom coffees give you the energy boost you expect with the added health benefits from the functional mushrooms but without the jitters. We also love that they use sustainable, high-quality, organic ingredients and that their coffee is fair trade and of single origin.
And while the mushroom coffees that we tasted had NO mushroom taste and did reduce the jitters, we wouldn’t say that these coffees are crash-free as everyone is different. We also aren’t sure if the reduced jitters are from 50% less caffeine over our normal morning brew or due to the functional mushrooms and herbs.
In addition, benefits like stress reduction, immune and gut support, as well as relaxation can take time and will vary from person to person, but we like knowing that the ingredients used have been used for centuries in traditional medicine with proven results.
We also recognize that Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee may be more expensive than grocery store coffee, but compared to other high-end coffee-with-benefits retailers they are in the middle of the price range.
We recommend Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee and cacao mix to anyone looking to easily add functional mushrooms to their daily routines and for those curious about functional mushrooms and adaptogenic ingredients.SHOP NOW >>
