Café Rasa vs. Coffee

Now you can have your coffee, and drink your adaptogens & mushrooms, too.

A cup of “I can do this,” Café Rasa is our antidote to an overburdened, overly stressed, coffee-crazed world. 2000mg of adaptogens plus organic, Fair Trade Coffee support smooth, focused energy, a more resilient stress response, and more so you can be more you without the crash—and it’s ready the moment you need it. Whether you’re running out the door to go to work, sitting at the airport, boiling water over a fire while camping, or just have a quick moment in the morning with a busy schedule, Café Rasa is ready when you are for your instant fix of adaptogens + coffee.

If coffee’s your thing, combining coffee with your daily dose of adaptogens and mushrooms helps to balance the burden that coffee puts on our body (helloooo cortisol spike) and leave you with calm, smooth energy. That’s why we created Café Rasa. Simply add it to your cup followed by boiling water and presto change-o… Rasa. Our original line of Rasa brew products are the ultimate self-nourishing ritual. And while we’re all for Rasa brew on mornings when we have 10 minutes to be intentional about taking care of ourselves, Café Rasa is there for you on those days where you gotta get out the door as quickly as possible (or out of your tent, or boarding a plane…).

Meet the Herbs

In addition to coffee, the six adaptogens in this blend were intentionally chosen for potency and balance. Totaling more than 2000 mg of adaptogens per serving (raw herb equivalent), Café Rasa delivers focused and sustained energy without the crash.

While energy and stress management are the driving force of the adaptogens in this blend, many of these herbs also profoundly support improved immunity, sleep, mood, and digestion when taken regularly.

Formulated by our Chief Herbalist, Café Rasa features six adaptogens for energy: red Asian ginseng, cordyceps, rhodiola, gynostemma, shatavari, and maca, plus chicory, date seed, and burdock for that roasty, full-bodied mouth feel.

What does Café Rasa taste like?

Café Rasa is Classic Rasa plus a serving of the smoothest and most premium instant coffee available. Adaptogens soften the downsides of coffee (less stress, less jitters, better sleep!), while supplementing the fatigue-fighting abilities of caffeine.

While many of the mushroom coffees on the market use cheap spray dried coffee, with its bitterness, burnt notes, and acridity, our custom freeze-dried coffee is flavorful, rich, and complex. Our coffee comes from Chiapas, Mexico and is certified organic and Fair Trade. 60 mg of caffeine never felt smoother or more satisfying.

Wellness doesn’t have to taste like dirt… that’s why we created Rasa.

It took us years to perfect Café Rasa. Here’s how it went:

We spent (literally) years testing all the instant functional coffee drinks out there, and there were approximately none, zero, nilch that we willingly wanted to consume every day, let alone enjoyed enough to crave. We heard time and time again that you didn’t want that sludge at the bottom of your cup, not to mention as an herbalist-formulated brand, we cringed at the lack of bioavailability in most powdered “functional” drinks.

So we set out to do the seemingly impossible: make an instantly dissolvable adaptogen and mushroom coffee that tastes as good as it is functional. One that you crave the same way so many crave coffee when you wake up in the morning (sound familiar?).

What this entailed was far more complex than “powdering” our existing Rasa and selling it, so it took us years of development to crack the code. Our process includes brewing the Rasa over several hours like a standard Chinese decoction—a process used for millennia—then drying it and granulating it to make it supremely delicious while remaining supremely dissolvable and bioavailable.

Café Rasa FAQ

Café Rasa is instantly dissolvable—just add water! While both blends feature coffee, adaptogens, and mushrooms, some of the herbs vary. Café Rasa features red Asian ginseng, which is not used in any of our Brew line products, and is one of the most energizing of all adaptogens. Overall, Café Rasa is going to be a bit more energizing than Dirty—it has more coffee, and stronger herbs.

We recommend our Brew products as a slower morning ritual to nourish your wellbeing. Ultimately, the choice is yours, though we highly recommend having both Rasa and Rasa Brew on hand so you choose your own adventure depending on your time, needs, and cravings.

Acacia fiber is a prebiotic fiber made from the sap of acacia trees. These trees are native to North Africa, and our organic acacia fiber is from Senegal. Acacia fiber, also known as gum arabic, has been used for thousands of years in cosmetics, foods, and medicines around the world. Queen Cleopatra was even a fan—it was a main ingredient in her favorite lipstick.

Acacia fiber's modern uses are many. We use it in Café Rasa as a processing aid to help our product clump less and flow better. And it's a win-win because acacia fiber is also an excellent health-promoting dietary fiber. Plus it improves soil fertility and animal habitat.

Each box contains 12 individual packets of Café Rasa.
Patience, young grasshopper. To be honest, we can't wait for Café Rasa to be available for subscription either. At the moment this is a very limited production run, so we don't have enough inventory to enable subscriptions. Don't worry, it's coming down the line!
We want that too! Here's the scoop: we literally took years to develop this product, and couldn't wait to get it into your hands. With all the work it took to perfect the product, we have not yet completed our shelf-life trials for a bulk option. We want to make sure it lasts and doesn't turn into a hard brick you can't use before we sell it to you in this way. So we made the call to get Café Rasa out into the world first in single-serve packets, and then hopefully in bulk once we confirm it can be done without sacrificing the quality of the product and your experience.
Yes, it does! And the other herbs in the blend add a sweet roundness that may actually have you liking this way more than your normal cup.
Yes, Café Rasa contains 60mg of caffeine from organic, Fair Trade coffee. Looking for a caffeine-free option? Try Classic Rasa!
Heck no. We spent years developing this process to avoid that, and to ensure it is as smooth, rich, and roasty as a cup of coffee. Café Rasa dissolves beautifully in your cup!

Adaptogens are a class of herbs that help the body adapt to and defend against the toxic effects of stress: they are nature's antidote to stress. They work systematically in the body to balance, restore, and protect. When you're experiencing less stress, your body functions better—better sleep, digestion, libido…you get the jist.

These herbs survived the Ice Age and still live in some of the harshest conditions around the world: they've learned to not only be resilient in the face of stress, but to thrive. In turn, they can help us do the same.

In short: we like to say adaptogens help you human better.

While adaptogens are a powerful group of herbs, they must be consumed consistently and in functional doses for long term stress support. That's why we're proud to be herbalist-formulated to ensure the highest quality of herbs, sound formulation, and efficacy!

Unfortunately we do not recommend Café Rasa for pregnancy and nursing due to the extracts used in the blend.
While there are waves by the shore, and the friendly wave of the hand when you're chilled out by consuming adaptogens, the waves we're referring to here are our different shipping rounds for this new product. As this is a brand new product format for Rasa with a new production process, we're rolling out shipments in waves to allow for us to scale our production mindfully. Our plan is that both Café and Classic Rasa will be available for on-demand shipping as usual at some point in the spring.

But of course. As with all Rasa products, Café Rasa is blessed by grass-fed unicorns*.

*Grass-fed unicorns not approved by the FDA.

We wish. We're working on that formulation to be released in 2057. For now, you can rest assured that all Rasa products feature potent doses of adaptogens to help you cope with the stressors in your life, even if you can't eliminate them.
