Ok really simply, i have autoimmune issues that I found out about recently.. got myself tested for upgraded coffee beans, and i dont have any allergies to it (woot!), but butter does mess me up because of the casein and lactose.. pretty sure ghee doesn't do anything to me, but the taste wrecks coffee for me.
So does anyone know a way to make ghee used in BP coffee taste good? I heard someone was able to make their ghee (homemade) end up being sweet because of a caramelization(sp?) process that they used when cooking it... don't know how that works or is even true though.
So... save me guys, i love BP coffee but the ghee just doesn't work well in coffee, and I need it til i can get my AI issues under control D:!
FYI posted this on the BP forums as well... just trying to fix this problem. :D

Don't have an answer for the ghee. Can you do some heavy coconut cream or almond milk to get that rich taste similar to butter?

I was probably the one who said the bit about the "caramel" ghee. It doesn't make it sweeter, it just lends more of a caramel flavor and bit more nuttiness that is good in sweet recipes (think of browned butter). I've used it in my BP coffee and it tasted fine, just make your ghee but leave it on the stove longer until it turns brown/amber. It may not do as much flavor changing as you need though, I go through periods where BP coffee turns me off and I add a few shakes of cinnamon until i can tolerate it...it masks a lot of the taste so that's probably your best bet. attached is picture of dark ghee I made by accident but ended up liking it. ghee1.jpg
