WTF is a Chagaccino?

The Chagaccino is the health and wellness industry’s favorite mocha alternative. A delicious organic, dairy-free, keto and vegan-friendly boost for your coffee featuring the highest grade medicinal mushroom, Chaga, and adaptogens like raw cacao, Ceylon cinnamon, Madagascan vanilla, and monk fruit. Super clean, smooth, and healthy, too!

What’s the difference between the Chagaccino and other mushroom coffees?

The Chagaccino features wild-foraged Chaga, extracted through a proprietary solvent free method using just high pressure and water, and only the highest quality ingredients. Raw powders that avoid any emulsifiers, binders, fillers, preservatives, or other junk, leaving you with the tastiest and healthiest mushroom coffee option out there! Our fully-formulated mix lets you choose your weapon – our OG recipe is espresso, plant-based milk, with ice optional, but this versatile mix works with cold brew, matcha, chai, or simply with milk to transform it into an adaptogenic superfood hot chocolate!

What does the Chagaccino taste like?

When mixed with espresso, milk, and ice, the Chagaccino transforms a basic latte into a deliciously nutty, and chocolatey mocha alternative. The only difference is it’s zero calories, vegan, keto friendly, AND super good for you. That’s why we say, ‘LiveLong, Die Pretty!’

What’s the best way to make a Chagaccino?

One of the great things about The Chagaccino is how versatile it is. Whether you take the Chagaccino mix to your local coffee shop, or prepare it at home, you’re guaranteed a delicious and healthy boost to your day! Here are our recommendations:

Our OG recipe: Mix Chagaccino packet with two shots of espresso, and stir well (we don’t use any binders, fillers, emulsifiers, or preservatives, so make sure to stir well to dissolve). Add ice to a glass, pour in milk of choice (about6-8 oz), and top it off with the Chagaccino mixture. Try it hot, too!

Chaga Cold Brew/Drip Coffee: Stir Chagaccino packet with 1-2 oz of hot water to dissolve, or straight into hot drip coffee, then add your cold brew, ice, and creamer or milk(optional).

Adaptogenic Superfood Hot Chocolate or Chocolate Milk: Simply mix Chagaccino packet into frothed or warmed milk for a delicious, healthier hot chocolate. For an iced option, mix packet with 1-2 oz of hot water, and stir well to dissolve. Add ice and milk to a glass, and top it off with the Chagaccino mixture.
Feel free to try it with matcha or decaf coffee, too!

You tell us! We love seeing how our customers incorporate Chaga into their daily routines!

What ingredients are in a Chagaccino? Where do you source them?

Ancient mushrooms: proven to support the immune system, relieve stress, and act as an antioxidant powerhouse. After 20-30 years of growth on birch trees, our Chaga is extracted with just water and high pressure to extract the healthy compounds vs. harsh solvents like alcohol, ethanol, acetone that many other brands use. We also freeze dry it into a powder preserving the health benefits vs. chemically spray drying it, resulting in a smooth and delicious beverage!
Organic Cacao Powder(Peru or Ecuador): Our 100% pure raw cacao powder possesses a luxuriously fine texture and rich flavor that creates the most delicious flavor highlighted in the Chagaccino! In order to preserve the complex flavor profile and health benefits, the beans are carefully harvested, fermented, sun-dried, and cold-pressed, and never roasted.
Ceylon Cinnamon(Sri Lanka): Apart from cinnamon being a powerful antioxidant, we chose Ceylon cinnamon because of the purer and sweeter flavor compared to other varieties. It acts as a perfect complement to cacao and vanilla, giving the drink a subtle warmth without overpowering the flavor.
Monk Fruit Sweetener(Japan):This zero-calorie sweetener and non-GMO erythritol traditionally used in eastern herbalism gives our Chagaccino the perfect, subtle sweetness that enhances the flavor of the other ingredients, all while keeping it clean.

How much Chaga is in each packet?

Each packet has 750mg of Chaga. This is a full dose to make sure you reap the benefits from the Chaga mushroom! No micro-dosing or pixie dusting here.

Is there added coffee in the Chagaccino mix?

Nope, our Chagaccino mix does not have any added coffee. Feel free to use your favorite beans to make the Chagaccino! See our How-To page here.

Can I drink your product without caffeine?

Yep! We love the mix with steamed milk, like a hot cocoa, mixed into a matcha latte, with decaf coffee, and in smoothies! Just make sure to dissolve the powder fully into a small amount of warm water before mixing into cold liquid! Please email info@drinkrenude.com with any recipe questions!

Does Chaga have caffeine?

Nope. Chaga is stimulant free, but it will give you an energy boost on the mitochondrial level for a more gradual boost of energy throughout the day, allowing you to perform at your best for much longer. Chaga also aids in improving sleep due to the fact that it does not stimulate the body in the way that caffeine does.  Chaga also works great with coffee (caffeine) if you choose to consume it as a mushroom coffee and extends the energy boost over a longer period of time without jitters or a crash. Smooth!

When is the best time to consume the Chagaccino?

We recommend enjoying a Chagaccino in the morning and afternoon, but it totally depends on if you’re going to use decaf or consume it with coffee (caffeine).  Enjoy it at night with the milk of your choice as an elevated hot chocolate and it will serve you in your evening routine for a good night’s rest!

How should I store my Chagaccino?

We recommend storing your packets in a cool, dry place. They’re pretty low-maintenance.

Can it be over ice and hot?

Definitely! Why don’t you give both a try? See the How-To page here!

No solvents, chemicals, preservatives,  binders, fillers, or lab made ingredients.  Renude means recreating and renewing what you love and are nostalgic for in pure, clean, respectful and loving way so you can enjoy it again the way it was meant to be. 

Sourcing

Where is your Chaga sourced?

Our Chaga is sustainably sourced from birch trees in Canada and Siberia. Chaga naturally grows where the tree is wounded (like a band-aid), and extends the tree’s life in exchange for absorbing its abundant nutrients. After letting the Chaga grow on the birch tree for 20-30 years, it’s the size of a beehive and is harvested leaving 20% on the tree so it can still protect it and be re-harvested in a few years. We can then re-harvest it from those same trees we GPS in 3-5 years. It grows on 1 in 10,000 birch trees in freezing climates.  Cool?

How is your Chaga extract made?

We have developed an advanced proprietary method for bioactive extraction that yields a clean Chaga extract in an earth-friendly manner. We employ an environmentally-responsible extraction method that applies heat and pressure to water to lower its polarity, causing it to behave like an organic solvent. We then freeze dry it into a powder to maintain the health benefits and avoid the use of harsh solvents. 

Where is it made?

The Chagaccino is made in Los Angeles, California. California knows how to party!

Will it get me high or make me trip?

Nope! The Chaga mushroom will give your body tons of health benefits, like promoting stress-relief and an energy lift, but it won’t get you high or make you trip.

Is your product Organic?

Our Chaga is wild foraged from birch trees in Canada and blended with Organic Vanilla from Madagascar, Organic Ceylon Cinnamon from Sri Lanka, Organic Cacao from Peru, and Monk Fruit from Japan.
