Is that that coffee with butter? Website started to go on about toxins in 'normal' coffee etc at which point the bullshit filter cut in

Yes coffee with unsalted butter and MCT oil, it's supposed to give you focus, energy and appease the craving for carbs, thus helping with weight loss.

I've had Tibetan Tea i.e tea made with butter. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience :) I don't think coffee would be any more palatable.

I think this only "works" if you're already on a Low Carb High Fat( LCHF ) diet. If you stuff your face with carbs/sugars then have some bulletproof coffee it won't kill the carb cravings.

I've also heard it kills all known germs dead; gives you wings; and, 60% of the time, it works every time

It is absolute marketing bullshit. Joe arogan ripped massive holes through the supposed science behind it in a recent podcast.

I see the moderators are all off down the pub again. Maybe its a good time for me to start a thread with lots of swearing in it.

Yeah I think the micotoxin angle has been widely discredited. That's not to say it's a bad coffee though, it just doesn't do anything other good quality coffee doesnt do too. You could put mct oil and butter with anything :)

And also salt - don't forget the salt - and also the butter is sometimes off or a bit rancid. I've had it too, more than once, and did NOT enjoy it. The hosts, though, were very hospitable.

Could we get a marketing deal on that?

My bank holiday laugh out loud moment...... thanks!!

Just been perusing the website and its incredible how gullible people are but got to give the bloke full marks for his business idea though.

I've got some organic single estate coffee, some raw unsalted butter and a vitamix..... should I give it a go?

Do people really buy into crap like this?

That was really a rhetorical question because I know they do but still, maybe I should go in to the alternative health market instead. I'm sure I'd earn a lot more money and not have to work weekends

Don't fancy adding the super-dooper-organic-grassfed-butter to my morning coffee, but I do add a spoonful of organic coconut oil. I've noticed no health benefits whatsoever, but it tastes pretty nice. =o)

Sounds minging. For anyone who has a stove top espresso maker, try adding a spoonful of poppy seeds.
