The Kosher Coffee Alternative That Looks Like Mud

In the kosher world, great coffee is abundant, and as time progresses, we see a growing “coffee culture” emerging in “Jewish foodie hot zones” such as Lakewood and Crown Heights. So when we heard about a new kosher coffee alternative that looks like mud and is certified kosher called MUD\WTR, we had to see what it was all about. Was it possible to get the upsides of coffee, whether the pick me up or delicious taste, without some downsides such as crashes, anxiety, and dependence?

A good morning ritual is the lead domino to a productive day. With a micro-dose of caffeine and a macro-dose of functional benefits, MUD\WTR is your mug’s best friend.  


Besides the novelty of MUD\WTR looking like mud, what are the ingredients of a concoction claiming to give a boost without the crash and a host of other potential benefits? 


  • Masala Chai (black tea)
  • Cacao
  • Lion’s mane (a mushroom)
  • Chaga (a mushroom)
  • Reishi (a mushroom)
  • Cordyceps (a mushroom)
  • Turmeric
  • Sea salt
  • Cinnamon 

Potential Benefits of MUD\WTR

  • Alertness but not dependency
  • Improvement in mood (thanks to the cacao)
  • Improved mental capacity and function (thanks to the Lions mane)
  • Improved stamina and performance (thanks to the Cordyceps mushrooms)
  • Improved immunity and overall health (immunity thanks to the Reishi and health thanks to Chaga)
  • Reducing inflammation (thanks to the turmeric)

The :rest Blend

In addition to the classic MUD\WTR blend, called :rise, which has caffeine and is a coffee alternative, MUD\WTR also now has a blend for nighttime relaxation called :rest.

Our Take On MUD\WTR

In our view, there is a place for MUD\WTR in the drink portfolio. With 1/7th the amount of caffeine as your standard cup of joe, the jolt is lesser but more balanced and extended. Also, the taste of MUD\WTR is a markedly more earthy, if not chocolatey one. The verdict on the health and adaptogens is still out, but we feel good after a cup.
