Product Description

Product Description

Delight your foodie friends with this unusual gift. With this mushroom kit you can grow your own pearl oyster mushrooms in four simple steps.

Bouquets of oyster mushrooms are waiting to burst out of this box, grown on upcycled coffee from one hundred espressos!

Share the excitement of growing your own, and watch in amazement in the second week as the mushrooms literally double in size every day.

The kits are a great treat for you and your kids, and a perfect gift for green-fingered foodies and garden-deprived city dwellers alike. Just find a light airy spot, follow these four simple steps: Open up - Water - Grow - Harvest. In around two weeks you'll be making your own steps 5 and 6 - cooking and eating!

The Kitchen Gardens are handmade in Sussex, where we monitor each kit and send them out when ready to grow.
Each Kitchen Garden growbox is printed on recycled card and contains clear growing instructions, a good-to-go mushroom growbag, free water spray pump and recipe card.

IMPORTANT: When we send the kit we've prepared it in advance so it's ready to grow! We strongly recommend opening the Kitchen Garden within 1 month of purchase.

Each pack is different and the mushrooms grow in all shapes, sizes and even colours!!

Our biggest yield from the first crop was over 500g, which was excellent but around 200-250g is a more normal yield for the first harvest - it will vary from pack to pack. After the first harvest you can prepare for Round Two; simply leave the Kitchen Garden to rest for 10 days then start again by watering it - all instructions are on the pack - you may even get a third round if you're lucky!

This really is the gift that keeps giving - once you've finished growing mushrooms, you're left with nutrient rich soil enhancer. Just empty the compost from growbag, break it up and sprinkle into pots of houseplants or onto flowerbeds for them to enjoy too!

Product Description

Espresso Mushroom Company is a group of coffee-drinking food lovers who've taken the next step to bring you the ultimate in fresh, home grown and sustainable produce - fantastic Oyster Mushrooms grown on used coffee grounds!

Our mushrooms are served in some of Brighton's finest restaurants in a mouth-watering array of cuisines from sautéed to sushi - but it's not just cooking & eating the mushrooms that's amazing - we love watching them grow - so have created the Espresso Mushroom Company Kitchen Garden which allows you to grow your own Pearl Oyster mushrooms in two weeks in your own home!

The Kitchen Garden makes a perfect gift as it contains everything you will need; stylish box with simple instructions, ready-to-go growbag, water spray pump & recipe card - as well as coffee grounds from one hundred espressos!

The Oyster Mushrooms you'll grow have a delicately rich flavour, enticing velvety appearance & smooth, firm texture. Nutritionally, Oyster Mushrooms are a treat too; they are low in fats & calories, & are rich in antioxidants proteins & minerals, particularly iron.

Like us, the mushrooms love the coffee and grow beautifully in this typically-discarded resource. And before you ask, they don't taste of coffee, nor do they contain caffeine.

So, all you need to do is find a light airy spot in your home to place your Kitchen Garden, follow the instructions & harvest your Oyster Mushrooms two weeks later. The only hard part is choosing whether to have them for a luxurious breakfast on a wedge of freshly baked bread, for lunch in a in a light salad, or in a risotto, casserole, stir-fry, soup or stew at dinnertime - bon appétit!

Open Up within one month of purchase, and store in dry cupboard at stable temperature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift! Want one for myself! 12 Sep 2012
By Steve
Verified Purchase
Fabulous gift! I bought 2 of these great kits, 1 for my gourmet sister in law and 1 for my chaotic, wannabe gourmet father, both loved their kits. I didn't see them till at least their second or third harvest, was amazed by the growth and the culinary results.

Arrived on time on both occasions, apparently really easy to do with instructions so clear even my dad was up and running within a couple of days. A brilliant fresh addition to any kitchen, I might have to get one for myself!

Great gift, great food and great fun(gi)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these mushrooms 24 July 2012
By RachelH
Verified Purchase
Tonight I made mushroom stroganoff with my very own home grown mushrooms from these fab little kits and they tasted wonderful!
The box arrived in no time at all - it looks neat and compact and sat nicely on my kitchen window sill. Clear instructions on the box and all it demands is a couple of squirts of water a day - this is a far cry from the flea infested mushroom kits we used to buy back in the 90's! The mushrooms emerged in no time at all - it was wonderful and actually quite astonishing to watch them growing bigger every day through their little window and in just over a week I had a perfect crop - or flush as it is technically known! There's a great novelty factor with these mushroom kits and I love the thought of reusing and recycling as they are grown out of used coffee grounds. There's obviously a lot of love which has gone in to this product and I did actually check out the Express Mushroom Company's website and even posted a picture of my mushrooms on their Facebook page! And of course, I forgot to mention - there's a chance of a second flush so bring on more recipe ideas! I love this product and it is also a great idea for a gift - I'm already totting up how many people I can give one to for Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars A FAB gift for adults and kids! 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
These kits are really fun for both adults and kids...my sister in law and nephew loved watching the mushrooms grow and then finally eating them :-)

It’s amazing that they grow from used coffee grounds and exciting that there is a surprise second harvest so make sure you keep hold of it after the first one.

I would highly recommend these kits if you are after a unique gift and experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mushroom growing kit - great fun! 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
The kit I originally purchased failed to grow even though instructions had been followed, however, when I contacted the company, they immediately sent me a replacement kit that began growing almost straight away.

Mushrooms grew visibly each day so would be a good activity to do with children.

I harvested my first crop yesterday and followed included recipe instructions, they were wonderful! Will be attempting another crop according to box instructions in a week or so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but mould.
Followed the instructions and over two weeks later we have a green mould growing, but no mushrooms. A shame, but there you go.
