This Denver Company is Using Mushrooms to Reduce Bitterness in Coffee

The process starts with inoculating green coffee beans with a synthetized strain of mushroom mycelium (roots) and let it ferment in a bioreactor. During this time the mycelium are consuming the molecules that they have been trained to break down. There are seven different main contributors to bitterness in coffee such as 2-methyl-pyrimidine, Furfural, 2-Furanmethanol, C6H602 (quinone isomers), 5-methyl-2-furancarboxaldehyde, 3-hydroxy-4-methoxy benzaldehyde and Diketopiperazine. We are able to reduce these molecules by up to 75% as well as being able to decrease mycotoxins by up to 65%. Once the beans have been fermenting for about a week, we dry them down to appropriate moisture content and they are ready to be roasted as normal.
