Frequently Asked Questions

1. Yes – it's made from a single ingredient - organic upcycled figs.  Figs are superfruits - alkaline, naturally caffeine-free, and help regulate blood pressure.  But their most remarkable feature is that they bring out the taste of whatever is mixed with them.  You don't have to wonder what it tastes like since it tastes like your favorite coffee.

Absolutely.  Many of our customers use it to completely replace coffee since it tastes very similar but doesn't have the acid or caffeine.  It can be mixed with your favorite coffee in the morning then used as a coffee replacement towards bedtime so it doesn't keep you up.  We list our various flavored beverages as coffee alternatives on our website for this reason.  Mellow Mix is a pre-mixed half-caff blend of coffee and supplement so does not qualify as a coffee alternative.

Firstly, there is no scientific definition (or chemical formula) for adaptogens and no science-based evidence that any mushrooms help relieve stress or help with focus. Most of the anecdotal evidence stems from a 1954 paper by a Russian scientist which was not peer-reviewed or substantiated. The premise seems to be that certain plants grow in stressful environments so consuming them will help with handling stress. Kind of iffy if you ask us. Some manufacturers claim to have 300% more adaptogens than others. They might as well claim 3,000% more since there is no scientific method of measuring adaptogens. So, no - we don't claim to have adaptogens.

Yes - you can make a wonderful creamy espresso with lots of crema with either a blend of your favorite coffee and FigBrew coffee supplement or with pure coffee supplement. When using the pure coffee supplement, we suggest a paper filter in the portafilter in the espresso machine or the fine ground fig particles will clog the holes in the portafilter. Aeropress filters work great and can be purchased in volume for less than 1-cent each but any paper filter that covers the bottom of the portafilter will work. Here's a video demonstrating espresso brewing with Figgee.

Mellow Mix uses a light-roast Central American highland coffee mixed 50/50 with our coffee supplement. 

Roasted fig has a longer shelf-life than coffee and can store for a year in the refrigerator.

Both Figgee and Mellow Mix are prepared using most common ground coffee techniques – including drip, pour-over, Chemex, French press, or steeping (cowboy coffee). FigBrew recommend a French press as a simple, inexpensive brewing technique. The brewing process results in grounds that we recommend be composted since they are organic and all-natural. None of our products are instant beverages so do not assume that the ground product will dissolve in hot water. We don't recommend steel mesh filters for any brewing technique since paper filters catch the oils in coffee that can increase cholesterol levels.
