How to Become The Macgyver of Coffee

Coffee

 

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant and it makes us alert, focused, and productive. But have you ever wondered about how to “hack” your coffee? There are good ways to make coffee and bad ways, but I have found a different way to make a cup of Joe. I’ve written about Bulletproof coffee before, but I have a few minor adjustments that I’ve made to making this particular coffee.

 

To make Bulletproof coffee, you’ll need these items:

1. Coffee: Dave Asprey recommends his coffee (for obvious reasons), but you don’t have to use his coffee. You can use any K-cup coffee that you like or you can use any bag of coffee that you prefer.

2. MCT Oil: Again, Dave Asprey recommends you buy his, but I’ve found another MCT oil that works just as good. I use Now sports MCT oil.

3. Butter: There is no way around this one. You’re gonna need Kerrygold unsalted butter. Why? Because salted butter will make you puke, and unsalted butter is from cows that are grass-fed, not corn.

4. Blender: Any blender will do just fine, but I use the “Bullet.”

 

Disclaimer: Please know that trying this type of coffee blend will be different for everyone. Some will experience increased energy, decrease in hunger, etc. While others will not get any added benefits by drinking this particular coffee blend. My advice to you is find what works for you, and stick with it. There will be a trial and error with this process, but that’s the fun part. Finding out what works best for you and your lifestyle.

 

Here’s how to make “Bulletproof” coffee:

1. Brew coffee by K-cup method or through a coffee maker (approx. 8 0z.).

2. Put a tablespoon of unsalted butter in your coffee.

3. Add a tablespoon of MCT oil in your coffee with the butter.

4. Blend everything in a blender for 20-30 seconds.

5. Enjoy! You’ve just made a supercharged cup of coffee.

 

It’s always fun to try new things, and you never know what you may discover by doing so. If you end up trying this coffee out, please let me know in the comments section.

 

Why Bulletproof Coffee Should be 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins

 

Bulletproof

 

Have you ever considered putting butter in your coffee? I’m gonna take a wild guess, and say you haven’t. It might sound like a bad idea to you, but I can assure you that it’s not. Dave Asprey, the founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller The Bulletproof Diet, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who has sparked millions of people to try Bulletproff Coffee. The basis of Bullet Proof coffee is to provide you with razor-sharp focus, mental clarity, and boundless energy. Having tested and tried this coffee myself, I can vouch for the claims that Dave Asprey is making. Upon drinking my first cup of Bullet Proof coffee, I felt instantly energized, and I was focused like I’ve never been before. There was something to this special blend of coffee, and I was hooked. Needless to say, I got away from being “Bulletproof” and it wasn’t until recently–when my girlfriend was interested in trying Bulletproof coffee–that I got back into being “Bulletproof” and I realized that I was ignorant for ever getting away from it. Just like anyone would do, Mr. Asprey presents a business with his “Bulletproof” line of products. I’ve tried several of his products, and they’re all legit. The only problem that you’ll run into with his products–is that they’re a bit pricey. For some, that won’t be a problem but for others–it will be. So, I devised a plan for you to enjoy Bulletproof coffee on a budget. Now some “Bulletproofers” will not agree with my plan, but this is for people who want to enjoy Bulletproof coffee, at an affordable price. After trying a ton of coffee (some good and some not so good) and with the help of my girlfriend (she’s a barista at Starbucks) I came up with this plan. In addition to my plan, I will also include the original Bulletproof coffee recipe. Have fun making this coffee, and let me know if you liked it (or not).

 

The original Bulletproof Coffee recipe

2 cups of hot brewed coffee made with Upgraded beans

Up to 2 tablespoons grass-fed unsalted butter

Up to 2 tablespoons Brain Octane MCT oil 

 

Here is my alternative Bulletproof Coffee recipe

One brewed Starbucks K Cup (Veranda Blend Blonde or Pike Place Roast)

Up to 2 tablespoons grass-fed unsalted butter. This ingredient is an absolute must. If you try this with salted butter, you will most likely throw up; it’s disgusting (trust me).

Up to 2 tablespoons MCT oil.

Add Stevia to taste.

Once you brew the coffee, put in your MCT oil, butter, and stevia (if you like). Blend all ingredients in a blender. I use the “Bullet” brand blender, but any blender will do. Blend for 20-30 seconds, and you’ve just made yourself one heck of a cup of coffee. There you have it. Not everyone is going to like this type of coffee, but that’s okay. It’s all about experimenting and seeing what works for you and your body.
