Most people have heard of Bulletproof coffee. It’s a sherpa-inspired tea drink that exploded in Silicon Valley a number of years ago. The Bulletproof brand is “mycotoxin-free” coffee (???), medium chain triglycerides and butter.

Butter is the bacon of dairy! I don’t know if butter can make anything worse. With my biases in mind I took the plunge. I skipped the mycotoxin-free coffee and used my standard issue coffee. It sounded like one-part hippie magic and one-part Wakefieldian science. The roasting and brewing process destroys most, if not all mycotoxins. I sliced off the equivalent of two tablespoons of butter into my coffee, mixed and then added water to the desired volume.
What’s it like? A delicious oil-slick. The butter mostly forms a phase over the coffee. The first few sips are decadent and rich – the butter tends to give my coffee a nutty flavor, not a negative quality.
I don’t use this beverage in place of a breakfast; it is used as an addition. I can’t tell if this concoction makes me more focused. It does seem to make me feel warmer and sweatier than a regular cup of joe. The extra calories are saiting and my A.M blood sugar is even until 13:00.
