I love it. I got into roasting my own beans, this way caffeine is super fresh. Sometimes I buy Robusta green bean (30-40% extra caffeine compared to Arabica beans). Give it a light roast. For me, I didn't use to drink coffee and when I made bulletproof coffee, the caffeine lasted 10 hours.
That's pretty interesting, a slow reléase effect from the fat! I have also heard people tell stories that eating a pound of butter together with alcohol gives a comfortable buzz that last a couple of days after drinking...

Been doing a coconut oil and Kerry gold version for the past two months. Makes me feel great. It's quick, tasty and the fat really satisfies my hunger, easy way to "cheat" an intermittent fast. My wife has recently started doing a tea version and likes the energy and had some easy weight loss with it as well. I just bought some "upgraded self" beans, I doubt they'll make me superhuman like Dave Asprey says but I thought they were worth a shot. Looking forward to trying MCT once I run out of coconut oil. Try it!!!
Have tried twice now in AM. 2T butter, a big heaping T coconut oil. Tried to blend with stick blender Wednesday and bought myself a brief cleanup job, this AM I just melted the oils in microwave and poured the coffee on. Worked fine. Just a bit hungry in AM but went till lunch no prob, felt very energetic. Considering making this a habit!
Im going to try this in the next few days. If any coffee is ok...
Does it matter if the butter is salted? I have organic butter but haven't found unsalted organic butter.
Does the stick whisker thing make or break it? I can get a cheapy for the purpose but dont need another item in my house unless it does magic to the coffee!
Would you use this as a meal replacement? If so, why?
Any coffee is fine. Unsalted butter is preferable, because it tastes better and is basically cream. Stick whisker helps keep it emulsed better, but if you have a closed-top travel mug of some kind you could shake it together occasionally. (They're $12-20 anyway for the little stick aerofrother things, which isn't terrible and I still use it now for my various mix-ins)
Should be some form of meal replacement, in that you don't eat breakfast and also 300+cal cup of coffee.
I don't do BP coffee anymore for many buzzkilling reasons, but my takeaway from it is still adding a little MCT oil to my cup. (Along with gelatin, sugar and milk)
