Recommended Tips

  • Use a Good Blender
    The point about blending your hot coffee is a game changer.

    Blending the healthy fats into your coffee helps with digestion of fat. Blending, especially at high speed, helps with the formation of micelles which will aid the bile from your gallbladder when breaking down the fatty acids.Remember put your hand on top of the blenders lid so not to have the lid fly off with hot coffee. You can find some of the best blenders for hot coffee over here.

    Invest in a high quality beverage blender (e.g. Blendtec, Vitamix) or use a portable battery operated milk frother to whip it all together into a creamy coffee that looks like a foamy latte or cappuccino. It is possible to make the the coffee without a blender though if you want to.

    Top tip to do this well would be to use new instamix as an ideal solution or get yourself a travel mug that you can shake in your hand with the lid closed. You can get them both at a discounted price as a starter kit here.

  • Choose a Brewing Method.
    Using a French Press coffee maker is the normal mehtod.Other recommended options are:
    Hario Paperless Coffee Dripper Black Stainless Steel Filter CFOD-02 to make 2 cups (~453g or 500ml) of freshly brewed coffee
    • Upgraded™ coffee cartridges in Keurig® K-Cup® Home Brewer.

    Ideally no paper filters to keep the benefits of the coffee oils.

What are the Bulletproof Coffee benefitsHave you been wondering why some of your friends love to put butter in their coffee?

Maybe you’ve heard of this stuff called MCT oil and that refined coconut oil is a good thing to put in your cup of coffee.

Then there are these mycotoxin tested coffee beans everyone is raving, what’s up with that?

When you decide to biohack your health by starting your morning off with a cup of this special type of coffee there are multiple potential benefits for your health.

If you walked up to someone in the street and said “This cup of coffee is going to change your life” they would initially think you’re crazy.

What you need to know highlights from the above video:

  • It is a precise recipe.
  • The stuff that grows on coffee when they ferment it creates histamine, which can trigger allergies.
  • Coffee can have ochratoxin (not regulated in the US) and aflatoxin [regulated, but not tested that well in coffee see Dan Cox podcast].
  • Bulletproof™ Process is for making coffee without performance robbing toxins in it.
  • If you drink coffee and need to pee straight away that’s the toxins in the coffee not so much the diuretic effect of the coffee.
  • Add grass-fed butter like Kerrygold or Anchor butter.
  • Use 1-2 tablespoons going up to 5 tablespoons if you are exercising heavy and not sleeping much.
  • Over time you will probably find you’ll use less butter.
  • Your body will want the saturated fat to help build new cell membranes.
  • Dave is now using 1-2 tablespoons of butter in his mug of coffee. As a beginner he started with 6 tablespoons.
  • You got to add MCT oil to your coffee (medium chain triglyceride).
  • Using coconut oil instead of MCT oil is not the best way to make it.
  • Coconut oil even if it is organic or virgin cold pressed is not the same as pure MCT oil or even better Brain Octane oil.
  • MCT’s make up 60% of 100% coconut oil. There are 4 lengths of MCT’s with 2 being the ones you are looking to get.
  • These 2 triglyceride lengths are only found in 15% of the coconut oil & they are what make Upgraded™ MCT oil and Brain Octane oil great for weight loss.
  • Take your coffee in the morning without sugar or protein so you achieve Bulletproof® intermittent fasting with all the benefits of the fat for energy.
  • The MCT oil helps you to achieve nutritional ketosis. This type of ketosis is healthy and helps you burn fat for both cognitive energy and to loss excess weight.
  • There are MMA fighters like Jason Lambert and other professionals who feel it rocks their world.
  • When you blend the fat into the fresh coffee you’re helping your body digest the fats easier by making them into micelles.
  • Most people on a low fat diet haven’t been used to digesting fat for a long time.
  • cCffee oils contain diterpenes, cafestol and kahweol, which are naturally present in the oil contained in coffee.
  • Cafestol and Kahweol have possible beneficial effects on inflammation in the brain (a.k.a brain fog).
  • Brewing coffee with a paper filter you miss out on the diterpenes so you want to use a metal filter when brewing coffee like a French Press method.
  • Butyric acid in butter helps turn inflammation off in the brain and heal the gut lining.
  • If you help your gut, you help your brain.
  • You can drink the Upgraded coffee black as it’s not bitter.
  • Bulletproof® diet sweeteners are alcohol sugars like xylitol and erythritol.
  • Good xylitol comes from wood not GMO corn. Get a xylitol on Amazon or erythritol on Amazon.

There you go.

You should have all the information you need to so you can make a fantastic & tasty mug of butter coffee with coconut oil.

It really is that simple to being able to make the perfect cup that will:

  • Help enhance your cognitive ability,
  • Produce loads of energy in the morning
