Does anyone else experience throat irritation, almost like slight sore throat feeling, after or while drinking bulletproof coffee? Why am I getting that feeling?

I use 6 tbsp of coffee to a carafe of water in our press, 1tbsp of MCT, and about tbsp of butter.

Who knows? It is kinda like an itch. I like bulletproof coffee, no so much coffee with coconut oil. It's too greasy. I like creamer but not just plain cream, so I just drink black or bp.

I don't think I have an allergy because I eat butter or ghee in other things. Thanks for input though.

it is possible you have a dairy allergy, to the butter. I used to get that same exact problem when i would drink the bulletproof coffee.

MCT oil and Coconut, to a lesser extent, can irritate my throat, almost makes it itch. It is a contact situation and doesn't always happen so I don't really know what it is. I've personally theorized that the anti-bacterial nature maybe made some bug angry but I honestly don't know.

Can I also say, just for myself, that BP Coffee is gross, even blended? Cream and coconut milk both make great coffee with just a spoon, I don't see why you'd need to dirty a blender etc....

I started taking MCT oil mixed half and half with coconut oil recently and have had a sore throat afterward. The coconut oil alone doesn't bother me, so it must be the MCT oil. I may quit taking it, or I might try mixing it in food to see if that works.

I remember hearing somewhere that the low viscosity (superfluidity) of MCT Oil creates trouble for some people because it messes with the throat mucus. But don't know the details and can't find the original source of that info.

I've been noticing a bit of a sore throat when drinking coffee as well. I have no idea why, I just started drinking coffee about a week ago. We got a french press and some fair trade good quality coffee and it's delicious with a touch of coconut milk. But I'd love to know why it irritates my throat. It's got to be the coffee, as it's not the coconut milk...
