Fantastic Herbal Coffee

It taste like real coffee. Great product.


Finally, someone 'FIG'ured out the taste of yum for alternative coffees. I have been searching for a very long time to find an alternative coffee that even tastes close to coffee. YOU DID IT!! It is the most delicious flavor and I have no need to ever return to coffee! I'm so pleased and have shared and shared your wonderful MELLOW ROOSTER brew, every way I can. 5 STARS!!!!!

Great alternative to coffee

Love it!

I’ve tried several different coffee substitutions and Mellow Rooster is by far the best.

Believe It Or Not

After drinking my Mellow Rooster every morning....I can enjoy the day. Never knew how caffeine free equals mellow. Great flavor and aroma. I recommend it.

Great herbal coffee!

I was so surprised at how similar this was to regular coffee, the flavor is so good!

My Morning Brew

I love waking up to this yummy herbal brew each morning.
So yummy 😋

So good!

I am really enjoying mellow rooster as a coffee alternative! I love that I can get the coffee experience without the anxiety and stomach troubles.


I love the flavor of Mellow Rooster and it makes an afternoon coffee craving smooth and delicious without the caffeine effects later on. It smells so great, like figs and warming spices, and has a great balance of bitterness.

Coffee in morning, Mellow for the rest of the day.

I'm down to one cup of coffee in the morning, followed by a cup of Mellow in the late-morning, and after lunch. I love my coffee more than ever now that I don't depend on it. Took about 4 days to get used to the new taste, but loving it now. My gf quit coffee altogether because of this stuff. Best of all, I think it has actually improved my sleep. Highly recommend.

Love it!

I had been following the Bulletproof diet, and consequently drinking a lot of coffee, which is a big part of that. I weaned myself off the coffee for more consistent energy throughout the day, and have been using Mellow Rooster in place of coffee for my morning bulletproof drink (blend in blender Mellow Rooster, a tablespoon or so of grass-fed butter, a tablespoon of MCT oil and monkfruit as desired). It may sound weird, but tastes great!

Sounds tasty to us, Travis! Love me some bulletproof as well! Gimme all the healthy fatz. Nice touch with the monkfruit. Thanks for the love!

Still mell as hell

Love this for those times when having a/nother cup of coffee is not the best choice. My summer fave is when it’s cold-steeped with vanilla oat milk 👌

Julene knows what's good! Over ice with vanilla oat milk is so dang good. Thanks for the kind words ;)

Did Not Believe it Possible!

I was wrong. When I drink this in the morning with my husband, as he drinks coffee. It tastes like I too am drinking coffee. Now don't get me wrong I know it is not coffee but it 100% suffices so that I am able to enjoy and it is remarkable how it mimicks the taste of coffee. Thank you! I love this stuff. It helps me stay on the AIP diet.

I love my mug!!!

I love my Mellow Rooster mug! Great quality and was able to put it in the dishwasher with no issues. Awesome!


I was so excited to come across Mellow Rooster on Instagram. I love all things coffee and would be considered a coffee snob, as some call it. As much as I love it, I do feel the need and desire to cut back on caffeine— especially in the afternoon. Normally I would have a cup in the morning and then make an iced coffee in the afternoon. I know it disrupts my bodies process to sleep when it’s time, plus I tend to feel anxious overall. I started out with an 80/20 mixture of coffee and Mellow. I LOVE IT! I enjoy an herbal taste, so to have that is delicious to me. I plan to eventually get rid of caffeine all together, but in the meantime I’ll continue increase the ratio, especially in the afternoons. I make regular Chemex cup in the morning, and usually aeropress/ iced coffee in afternoon. Both are delicious with the Mellow mixture. Thank you!

Love it

I quit coffee recently and was thrilled to find Mellow Rooster as an alternative. After drinking it a few weeks, I now prefer it to coffee. Thank you Mellow Rooster! I’m in love.


For health reasons, I've attempted to quit coffee on and off for years but always went back missing the taste and comfort it brought. This is the best herbal alternative I've ever tried. After ordering, I immediately ordered a few more to give to friends to try. It's delicious. Definitely recommend.

This former barista is hooked!

I worked as a barista for several years and recently quit caffeine/coffee, but I have been craving the bitter and delicious taste of brewed espresso. This delicious tea certainly hits the spot for me! It's give that desirable full body taste without the full body jitters!

Ridiculously A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Product!

FOLKS - not only does this product have awesome packaging, the inside is even better and will tickle your tastebuds. You will not be disappointed! Coffee drinkers BEWARE - you will be converting to tea once you sip on this cup of full flavour. Knock those jittery caffeinated habits for a mellow experience that will bring you nothing but joy and health benefits!

Also, thanks to Mike for expedieting my shipment based on demand for our themed gift baskets! We have no doubt that these will fly off our shelves when we introduce it to the public (if we don't hoard it for ourselves), it is unique to anything else in the area!

So In Love!

I received Mellow Rooster as a gift. after my first cup, I went online and ordered two (2) packages! I just wish it came in bigger sizes! I am a coffee holic, I can honestly say that now I am a Mellow Rooster holic! Thank you for this wonderful product!

Thank you so much, Debra!

Seriously Impressed!

I've been looking for a natural alternative to caffeine to give me energy after being put on an anti-inflammatory diet that restricts coffee and tea intake. When I came across this at Thump Coffee I was bummed they didn't offer it as a drink at the cafe, but decided to give it a whirl as I am desperate for an alternative. I tried it for the first time this morning straight up (no milk or sugar) and was seriously impressed how much it tastes like coffee! It also gave me a natural boost of energy which has continued until past lunch time - without the jitteriness or increased heart rate I would sometimes get with caffeine.

It does have a mild earthy taste to it, but I think that could easily be masked with milk or creamer. It was also a little chalky as I got to the bottom of my cup, but that may have been due to the tea strainer I used. I most likely will need to buy one that can handle straining a fine powder, which is what this product is. It looks like really fine coffee grounds.

Overall I am trilled with this product so much that I had to go to the website to share. Thank you for creating this amazing coffee alternative to make my transition to a healthier life a little easier.

KR - Seriously grateful for YOU. Thump will be restocked very soon!

holy sh*t, that's good

I'm so impressed by this product. Seriously. I'm a coffee addict but recently came to terms with the fact that I was consuming too much coffee in the afternoon which was affecting my sleep. Then a friend recommended I try Mellow Rooster. I was honestly beyond skeptical. But when I made my first cup, before even drinking it, I was already pleasantly surprised at how much it actually looked like coffee. The colour, texture, everything. Then I tasted it, and damn. If it was ever at all possible to come up with a blend of herbs that remind us of coffee, then that's it. I don't think it can get any better than this. They got it just right. I'm so excited to have something I actually enjoy and look forward to drinking in the afternoons. It's become a new ritual now, to feel "mell as hell." ;P Thanks Mellow Rooster!
