"I get focus support after drinking my morning Mud, without the jitters and anxiety that made me give up caffeine in the first place."
Founder of Whole30
"MUD\WTR is pretty much the best substitute for coffee that you can ultimately get."
Author and Fitness Coach

WTF is mud?

MUD\\WTR was dreamt up to reduce my coffee dependence. Coffee is a stimulant, slingshotting my energy levels, I wanted a more balanced approach to boosting focus and wakefulness. So, I blended masala chai with a hall of fame ingredient list: Lion’s mane for focus, chaga and reishi to support a healthy immune system, cordyceps to promote natural energy, turmeric and cinnamon for their antioxidants, and cacao for mood and energy. It’s 100% organic and there’s zero sugar and no sweeteners added. With a fraction of the caffeine in a cup of coffee those jitters are gone and you are left with calm, alert, and sharp but still able to fall asleep at night. The result: you, but superhuman.

Certs on certs.

100% USDA Organic, non-gmo, gluten free, vegan, Whole30 & Kosher.

How do I make it?

Take a tablespoon of mud and drop it into your favorite mug. Pour in some hot water like you're making matcha and from here on out it’s your world, we're just living in it. Some go wild and add some honey and cbd, others add our coconut and MCT creamer, and some keep it OG and drink it straight up. All you have to do next is mix it up. You can use our frother, a blender or a spoon, either way, mix that creation up real well before enjoying like the legend you are.

What does it taste like?

With blend of chaga, reishi, lion’s mane, cordyceps, and turmeric giving you get a sharp mind, physical performance, and a supported immune system, masala chai and cacao do the heavy lifting in the flavor department. It's earthy, a little chocolatey, and slightly spicey. Like chai and hot coco had a lil hippy love child.

What are the benefits?

With a who's who list of ingredients the benefits of MUD\\WTR span mind, body, and for those open to it, spirit. With Lion’s Mane added to support focus, Chaga for phytonutrients, calming Reishi for immunity, Cordyceps for natural energy and turmeric for antioxidants,it's what coffee always aspired to be and tastes like something you can build a ritual around.

Where are the mushrooms grown?

Where many source their mushrooms from China, we decided to stick a little closer to home. All of our mushrooms are 100% organically grown in California on gluten-free oats, under clean air, and selected for their unique capacity to support mental AND physical functions.

How much caffeine?

:rise contains about 1/7th the caffeine of a 12-ounce cup of premium drip coffee. Caffeine in coffee can vary up to 30mg, depending on the beans and the roasting method, according to the FDA. Though more subtle, the caffeine content of MUD\WTR can vary as well, but by blending a 6g serving of MUD\WTR in a 12-ounce cup of water, you will typically yield around 35mg of caffeine plus or minus a couple of milligrams. Check out our :rest blend for a caffeine free alternative.

Can I drink while pregnant or nursing?

Though our ingredients are all associated with profound health benefits, we suggest consulting with your physician before making any changes to your diet during pregnancy or nursing.

How is it Whole30 with oats on the label?

You’re correct that oats and products made with oats are eliminated during Whole30. Whole30 HQ has made an exception to that rule for MUD\WTR as we use organic oats that are used as material to culture the mushroom blend. Because oats are not present in significant amounts in the final product, Whole30 determined MUD\WTR is still Whole30 Approved and compatible during the program.

    Great stuff

    I really love mud water as a way to begin my day. My ONLY complaint is that neither the 15 day nor the 30 day containers last as long as they’re supposed to last. I weigh my serving size as per the instructions and still come up a few days short. Considering the cost, I think the containers should last through the designated number of days.

    Good but has kinks

    So I first of all I love the ingredient list and think it absolutely helps with focus, energy etc… Since giving up coffee, I have a hard time finding good replacements for the brain. The chargeable frother is honestly my favorite part. It’s the best one I’ve ever had!!! What I don’t love is that some mix settles at the bottom of the mug so the last couple sips are all mix. So I re froth it a few times. It’s not that great tasting and pretty watered down unless you do double the serving recommendation. I love the look and convenience of the can but the top is SO hard to get off to the point I wasted half of my powder from it flying all over my kitchen. This happened twice once was in a hotel room and made a huge mess. So I now just set the lid on top. But I’m not giving up yet and I will see if these kinks can be worked out.

    I struggle with how many stars to give! For what it is, a super healthy drink, I love it. I know it's exactly what my body needs. It's nummy with a bit of stevia and oat milk and taste sort of like a chai latte! As a coffee substitute, I don't love it as much though. I have been able to give up coffee completely which is awesome, but the MUD/WTR regrettably just isn't as rich 😭 I've tried it more concentrated, but that wasn't the answer. All that to say though, I'm going to keep drinking it as a morning drink like I would coffee but not pretend like it is coffee 😂

    Welcome kit

    Love it! Mostly the product itself, and the frothers are a really nice bonus! I’ve replaced my afternoon coffee/tea jolt with mud water daily. I just add some non-dairy milk just as I do for my coffee and I love the taste and don’t mind the sediment at all. I just keep a spoon in it to get it all!

    I’ve now ordered the 90 day supply bulk product - at an even better price!

    Best regards,

    It serves its purpose of replacing my coffee but the flavor is lacking and I’ve not been able to make it a consistent morning routine like coffee was. But, I’ve been coffee free since May.

    Diggin It!

    I’ve replaced my morning coffee with Mud since I got it, I still drink coffee later on in day but only 1 cup opposed to 2-3 more, I love the energy i get from it without the anxiety coffee can bring, plus it’s a healthier choice, if suffered a heart attack in 2020 so I can use all the healthy ness I can get! 😉

    For years I have drank coffee for many reasons, but once I found the best alternative.....I couldn't resist myself!!! The smell of mudwater takes me back to my childhood, memories of drinking Mexican hot chocolate with my grandma!!!

    Love it!

    I can definitely tell the difference between drinking Mud/WTR and Coffee. I had to go a few days in between my order arriving so I had some coffee. I felt awful, anxious and emotional. I will probably still have coffee from time to time, but I am no longer an everyday coffee drinker!

    :rise contains a fraction of the caffeine found in coffee. On average, coffee contains 90-100mg of caffeine. That can vary up to +/-30mg, depending on the beans and the roasting method, according to the FDA. Meanwhile, :rise has around 35mg of caffeine per serving. Check out our :rest blend for a caffeine-free option.


    Our morning coffee alternative, :rise, sure is. Whole30 HQ has made an exception to their "no oats and/or sorghum on the label" rule for MUD\WTR, as we use organic oats and sorghum to culture the mushroom blend. But because oats and sorghum are not present in significant amounts in the final product, Whole30 determined :rise is still Whole30-Approved® and compatible with the program.


    Nope. There are no sugars or sneaky sweeteners added. If it's not sweet enough for ya, try adding some of our own :sweetener. It's the least-bad sweetener money can buy.


    MUD\WTR started in and operates out of Venice, CA. All of our mushrooms are American-grown, while the rest of our ingredients are sourced from all over the world, before being dropped off at our production facility by peregrine falcon.


    All of our mushrooms are grown in the U.S.A., baby. We work with producers in California and Nevada, but only the very best of 'em.


    We're not doctors and we don't pretend to be. Consult your physician before making any changes to your diet during pregnancy.


    All of our products are USDA-certified organic.


    At the moment, we do not. Our product is expensive to create and we believe that you will not regret ordering it to try for yourself.


    We sure do. We work with select cafes and markets that we feel represent what we do and serve our customers well. Interested in becoming a wholesale partner? Drop our wholesale team a note on
