@Granny I have some cacao-mushroom blends as well, yummy.
@kev I use chaga for those reasons, too, it has no buzz. I use un- bleached filters for my decaf pour-overs and don't notice a taste, but now I'm thinking maybe I should break out the french press and do a comparison. I stopped using it because of permanent residue in the filter.

WTMD is... eh... perfectly acceptable... if you are desperate and/or boring. It's what BT would have called "strollercore", ha ha. Much like NYC's WFUV. Philly's XPN is similar but *slightly* punchier.

This music so far is not letting me break the hold and go out to take the barrel filled with many months worth of compostable garbage and bury it in the neighbor's pile as I planned to do this morning after much procrastination already. Leashed by the great lively grooves.

@Ike I am stating to that honk that a lot if college stations are just a form of commercial radio
