  • Bulletproof Coffee hits Coffeshops

    In Toronto!

    I was just watching the morning news, well, noonday news, and they had a segment on buttered coffee. Apparently a coffeeshop in Toronto is offering it. They mentioned bulletproof coffee, how it was invented after that guy tried buttered tea in mongolia, etc. They also had a doctor on telling us how ZOMG WE ALL GOING TO DIE if we dare drink it. XD That saturated fat will kill you! Heart attacks! OMGWTFBBDQ! Hehe. It actually wasn't a bad piece of journalism though, for a ten minute segment...

    Interesting. When I saw the topic title I was expecting that they'd substitute margerine.

    EDIT - I bet if it hits the US they will.

      I think it might have started in the US. I think the segment said something about LA? Can anyone confirm or deny?

        If I saw it at a coffee shop I might try it. The whole blending thing is putting me off everyday use.

          Wouldn't it be lovely? Hi, I'd like a double bulletproof espresso, please. Would you like that with pastured butter, coconut oil, or MCT oil? And then under the listing on the menu, you notice, "We're happy to add a pastured egg yolk for an additional $1."

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

            That would be SO awesome. I hope it hits Calgary. XD They do use MCT to make it at the coffee shop...

              Where do they get grass fed butter in Canada? Official or unofficial bulletproof? I heard Dave was thinking of opening coffee shops and he lives in Canada.

                No such thing as getting commercial grassfed butter in Canada, unless you want to bring it in by your $20 duty exemption limit at a time.
                I can't say I'd be willing to spring for it if it did end up here...I haven't tried it, but I guarantee that hit of fat would leave my pulse pounding and me feeling like heaving for an hour. No thanks.

                  Ah, yes, there is that... grass fed butter does not exist in Canada. On the plus side, the hormone and antibiotic regulations are fairly strict... I make do with what I have and I assume the coffee shop is too.

                    I am finding it very hard to get grass fed butter in my part of Australia so I just constantly opt for the organic unsalted and yes, I pay and arm and a leg for it but it sure does have a richer taste and oddly enough it's NOT that weird yellow colour I associate with butter, it's almost an off white ivory colour.

                      Does anyone know the name of the coffee shop in Toronto?

                          Ah yes, Canadian dairy protectionism, I hate it. On a positive note there are some smaller producers who are starting to see the opportunity if you look around. Farmhouse Cheeses in Aggassiz BC is producing some small-batch grass-fed butter, its very good, not cheap though.

                            I consider locally produced organic grass fed butter to be more or less a 'supplement'. Mostly in the form of a tablespoon per day in my morning coffee. Along with a tablespoon of locally produced grass fed heavy cream.

                            I wish I felt I could use them both more liberally - but they are just so pricey!

                              Best post ever. There's nothing that American greed-driven processed food companies can't ruin.

                              But it doesn't surprise me that someone is offering it. Paleo will be a niche market, but heck, so is a lot of fine dining, right? As long as people pay, someone will offer it. My local Mom's Organic Market offers incredible Paleo ingredients like grass-fed beef, organic chicken, pastured eggs, grass fed butter and cream. BUT, their little deli is vegetarian and they sell tofu by the chunk out of a 5-gal spackle bucket, and there is a lot of gluten free carbs. I thanked the cashier for offering good meats and he said, "Yes, we know about all the diets and we offer for everybody. BTW I'm paleo."
