After reading about this Bulletproof Coffee thing over and over again for week and weeks… and weeks, I finally got off my butt to make it. Picked up some fresh Bella Donovan beans from Blue Bottle, fancy grass-fed German butter, and organic virgin coconut oil. (Why do they call it oil if it’s not at room temperature?)
I wanted something with some oomph, so I opted for a 2 minute inverted Aeropress brew. I also didn’t want cold coffee after the butter and blending, so I heated the water to 205°F.
As I brewed the coffee I looked at the fat in the blender cup. I wasn’t sure I wanted to be consuming that on its own, in one shot.
When the 2 minutes were up I pressed and blended. It came out looking like a latte.
I took a sip. Not bad. It had a hint of coconut to it. Creamy, not unlike my usual coffee with heavy whipping cream. My lips were pleased; every sip felt like a fresh coat of lip balm.
But the real test would be how it made me feel. Would it Supercharge My Body and Upgrade My Brain? I waited.
I had expected not to feel hungry for a bit, but I wanted food after about half an hour. What about those 228 fat calories I just consumed?!
One hour later, I was straight up ravenous. I ate to stave off a hunger headache.
That was a lot of work for not a lot of benefit. Tomorrow I’ll go back to my beloved heavy whipping cream.
Still curious? Don’t want to stockpile fancy fat? Come over and I’ll make you a cup.
