Mark Merthe is the COO and one of the founders of La Republica Coffee. He’s an entrepreneur and published songwriter in Los Angeles. He is also a coffee enthusiast and starts every day with a workout and La Republica Mushroom Coffee.
He believes that his mushroom coffee is the "Songwriter's Secret," as it gives that much-needed boost of mental clarity for creative work.
In 2018, Ian and Mark were debating the best way to do a bulletproof pour-over coffee. They had an arsenal of kitchen gear, brewers, specialty filters, and expensive beans. They had both been taking Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee, which they had learned about from Tim Ferriss. They loved it, but didn’t like the packaging waste, the low amount of mushrooms per cup, the fact that it wasn't organic and wasn’t manufactured locally.
So they set out on their new mission to create an organic mushroom coffee that got better results. They sourced the finest organic coffee from the most OG coffee grower in Ojai, CA. Next they foraged for the finest organic mushrooms in order to reduce the natural acidity in the coffee and prolong the positive effects of caffeine. 7 mushrooms in total!
They had no idea they would be shaping an entire industry and getting new converts every day. Their little experiment went from a personal attempt to optimize their day to a blossoming company that’s changing lives. They continue to push for quality, innovation, and excellence, creating products that get real results!
Their goal is to turn drinking coffee into an art form. Heavily influenced by Jiro (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), they practice the art of methodically and systematically making things perfect. You only get one first cup of coffee each morning… It sets the tone for the whole day. Their journey to this moment is as rich and complex as the coffee products they create. Please join them in making La Republica Coffee part of your exceptionally well-crafted morning routine.
