    I cool down my coffee and add my whey isolate. No problems for me. Not sure if that helps.

    Yeah I could do that, I have natural so want to try something without having to blend or make a smoothy.

    I dissolve 1 scoop of whey in cold water then add hot coffee. For the size of my mug 1 scoop is all I can add. If you put milk in your coffee you can dissolve the whey in that instead of water, that's how I make cocoa for my son.

    That sounds like a good idea, I'm just wondering if it can stand hot temperatures?

    Are you concerned that the nutritional profile will be affected by heat? From what I read the temperature of a drinkable hot beverage won't change it, though boiling it might.

    Nah, it's fine.
    You could also pour your coffee into a blender then throw the whey into it and blitz it for a few seconds.
    Doesn't get all clumpy and comes out nice and frothy.

    Whey denatures at 161F (72C) well below boiling. Hot coffee typically ranges from 160F - 185F. I believe you will render your whey fairly worthless by adding to hot coffee.

    When you say "denature" what do you mean ? broken down by heat into peptides ? it would make it even more digestible. Remember that what enters your bloodstream (hopefully!) is amino acids, after complete breaking of the protein complex.
