Bulletproof coffee


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,
I think you've heard of bulletproof coffee. My family likes it, and we usually buy it in a cafe nearby. I want to try making bulletproof coffee myself. I've already found this recipe, what can you say about it? Share your recipes, thanks in advance.
p.s. what blender do you have? I need to buy one for this purpose. Currently, I'm choosing out from this list, but I'll consider any other options too.

As I understand it, bulletproof coffee is also known as butter coffee, and people have discussed it here: Butter Coffee. I can't be much more help than that, because I haven't tried it. It doesn't look as though you need special equipment or sources.

Bulletproof coffee without MCT oil isn't really bulletproof coffee. MCT oil provides a tangible energy boost that plain butter coffee doesn't offer. The recipe cited by the OP is "the" recipe for BP coffee, so I'd start there. Brain Octane Oil (a refined MCT oil) is expensive. But it offers only one form of MCT (caprylic acid aka C8) that is supposed to be the most bioavailable energy source. There are cheaper all-C8 formulations of MCT oil available online, but even regular MCT oil provides a qualitatively different coffee experience than using only butter or coconut oil.
