Coffee: Bulletproof

Answered on August 19, 2014

Just discovered this recipe/concept today (new to Paleo). Two questions: 1) I drink Starbucks coffee. Is this really low quality coffee or is everyone just hating on a large, omnipresent corporation? 2) Can anyone suggest a higher quality brand I can order.

Full disclosure: I work for Starbucks, which means that I get coffee for free, so I'm biased here. But I can honestly say that the darker roast Indonesian coffees are a great carrier for both coconut oil and cream as well as butter. That or an extra shot Americano. No matter where you go for your beans, i would definitely recommend a Pacific or South Asian blend with a darker roast since the herbal and spicy notes hold up to the richness of the fat you're adding.

1) No, it is not at a foldgers or chock-ful-a-nuts level. Starbucks is the upper echelon of mass produced coffees.

2) Your best bet is to find a local supplier that works directly with a farm, or a single distributor. That way you have traceability to the source. From a national level I enjoy, Equal Exchange Coffee; Batdorf; and Gorilla

To answer your second question, at least:

The best advice on coffee sources I got when I asked about it (here) was to buy freshly roasted beans from a local roaster. This is definitely the way to go. Talk to your small local coffee shops. If they don't sell the beans themselves, they might at least tell you where they get theirs.

The actual Upgraded Coffee beans on the Bulletproof Website are decent. If you get the 5lb bag, it works out to about $12 per 12oz bag which is comparable to most other coffees.
