My thought is that I'm just going to nibble on a tablespoon of butter while my coffee brews, and then drink my coffee with heavy cream. I'll save the coconut oil for cooking.
I wouldn't worry too much. I would think your biggest concern is overdoing calories from bulletproof coffee or tea. Just make sure you account for them when calculating what you need for a day.
Bulletproof coffee can be adapted to cocoa.
I only use one teaspoon of coconut oil. Coconut oil is close enough to MCT oil that I don't bother with special ordering.
Since we are fat-burners, drinking bulletproof coffee will break a fast. Sorry, it's a meal.
Bulletproof coffee doesn't have much in the way of nutrients compared to meat or kale. It's a dessert.
Bulletproof coffee is a major calorie bomb. As a rule Primals aren't supposed to count calories, but this is an exception to that rule. Even fat burners can gain fat from eating too much fat. The reason that Primals don't need to count calories is that we depend on stomach fullness. Since bulletproof coffee is liquid fat, we can chow down 300 calories before we feel full. Easy to overdo the fat calories.
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 109 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
BP coffee used to be my breakfast and lunch. Until I could ditch the morning fat as well.
We're beating a dead horse on the BP thing, but again, I'd rather eat my calories. If you're happy with consuming half a days worth of calories in a butter-laden and no sweet version of a frappucino, good for you. I'd rather eat a meal.

I have a hard time formulating how I could use BP coffee to my advantage. Skipping a meal with it, seems like id go into a calorie deficit. And adding it on top would mean mean more calories, but probably some the best calories I want to eat anyway.
I must admit, as a coconut oil aficionado, that coconut oil tastes very good in coffee and transforms it into my primal equivalent of a starbucks frappe-latte-chino. I might just have it with my first cup of the day just for S&Gs!
