Today we are talking about one of our favorite morning drinks…COFFEE!
Danny Walsh is an outdoors person, recreational athlete, and entrepreneur out of Boulder, CO. When he was diagnosed with a stress-related auto-immune disease in his last year of college, he turned down the offer for a desk job and instead took to building trails so that he could move his body all days. During this time, he learned to forage and brew chaga tea. He couldn’t stop thinking about how good chaga, a medicinal mushroom, made him feel – soothed, relaxed, calm. Focusing on continually managing his stress, he started incorporating these Adaptagenic mushrooms into his morning routine for daily stress and immune support, and eventually putting them in his coffee. When he looked to see what was out there for mushroom coffee, there wasn’t a single product that tasted like coffee without compromise. Soon after, Peak State was born to help people upgrade their morning routine with high quality coffee with the added health benefits for immune support, stress support, and cognitive health. Today, Peak State’s is the world’s first whole bean functional coffee, infused using their patent pending process for daily wellness and to keep you functioning at your Peak State. When Danny is not working on Peak State, he’s climbing, skiing, spending time with his partner, or trail running with his dog Tuckerman.
What is Peak State Coffee?
If you’re like me, coffee is the first part of your morning, which makes it the perfect vehicle for other nutrients too. Peak State has introduced coffee with adaptogens to boost performance, immunity, brain health, and sustained energy throughout the day. Keto Friendly of course, and the coffee is LOW ACID, which is huge if you have a sensitive stomach to acidity in coffee. They test it with a pH meter.

- “It is so important to find an organic coffee to ensure that you are not drinking pesticides that we now know can cause harm to reproductive organs and even cause cancer.”
- “When you are in this clean and pure environment at home, you realize how toxic our world is when you get outside of your bubble.”
- “A lot of people don’t realize the toxicity of products because of failure to check the product’s origin.”
