This EASY TO USE home growing kit produces delicious, healthy, gourmet oyster mushrooms.
The box contains a mushroom and coffee mixture that has been pre-prepared and is READY TO USE.
We make use of used coffee grounds. Coffee is the second-biggest traded commodity, next to oil. Only around 1% of a coffee bean is used in making coffee. This means millions of tons of coffee grounds are sent to landfill every year. Not only is Espresso Mushrooms saving food, but we are diverting tons of used coffee grounds from landfills and giving them a second life.
Oyster mushrooms are great to cook with, try some of our great recipe ideas. They have a wonderful velvety appearance, smooth firm texture and a delicately rich flavour with a fresh peppery scent. This makes them an excellent ingredient for soups, risottos, casseroles, Asian dishes or as a treat on toast.
Nutritionally, they’re a treat too and great for your health as they’re high in protein and fibre, low calorie and contain zero fat and cholesterol. Oyster mushrooms are naturally rich in vitamins and nutrients including vitamin B and vitamin C and significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, folic acid and niacin.
They also contain polysaccharides which can strengthen the immune system, can naturally help decrease cholesterol levels and may even have a positive effect on some tumours
