How do you like your Coffee?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I just started drinking coffee recently but don't like the pain of blending butter in it and cleaning our vitamix. I'm thinking i'm just going to put a little unsweetened almond or coconut milk (not sure which is better yet) and a splash of liquid maca or stevia. I'm hoping it'll serve as a weight loss thing for me and even though the bulletproof coffee is supposedly awesome, I still think less calories (that are paleo) would equate in more weight loss. So i think I'm just going to opt for the 15-20 cals from the almond milk versus the 100 cals from the butter. How do you guys like your coffee (especially those who have successfully used it for weight loss)?

I'm a HUGE fan of BFC. I currently use 1 tbsp MCT and 2 tbsp of butter and make two mugs of coffee (20 oz and 16 oz) and will drink both of them throughout the morning.

Agreed -- great answer. (Unsalted) butter in coffee does taste awesome but after some personal hacking with the bulletproof coffee over several months, I noticed absolutely no benefit from it.

Like the kind for protein shakes? Haha I'll have to look for one that might be a good option.

Hm okay thanks! Have you experienced good results specifically bulletproof? How much do you use of the butter/mct oil? And do you use a sweetener? I don't like bitter coffee but the liquid stevia makes me feel funny so I'm thinking about trying xylitol? But I'm worried that will raise my insulin and ruin the coffee effects. Sorry for all the questions haha.

I use a blender bottle, the kind with a whisk ball in. Works a charm! The butter and coconut oil make a nice frothy creamy head like a latte.

Espresso, four shots, black: lots of caffeine, low acid. I don't think there's anything magic about bulleproof coffee, it probably tastes good (how could butter not taste good?), but it's not doing anything special for weightloss. I'd stay away from anything fake. That includes pseudomilks (nut milks, eg) or pseudosweetners (caloric or not, if it's sweet it's not good for you).

I don't use coffee for weight loss, but I like my coffee like I like my coffee -- with more coffee in it.

For me, I like my coffee black.

One thing I have never understood -- Why is butter better than just plan cream? I mean butter is just cream curds that have had the protein removed right?

I drink coffee as a shot of expresso with a tablespoon of heavy cream. I tried coconut milk and gagged. Just couldn't do it. I don't use it for weight loss, I drink it because I like the way it tastes. I've gone off all sugar and sugar substitutes, thought it would be hard to have unsweetened coffee but it wasn't that hard after all. You can taste the coffee better this way.

Bulletproof. If you don't want to clean a blender you can get a $5 electric milk frother from Ikea, or just stir frequently. The calories aren't an issue when the coffee IS your breakfast (and sometimes lunch also.)

Me? Heavy cream. I know, I know. :P Reintroduced after a month of coconut butter usage. No problem.

Coconut milk from the can works pretty well. It's thick like cream, unlike the unwholesome soy-milk style nut drinks from a carton, of various sordid sorts, which are watery and laden with harmful thickening agents. Well, not a fan of the guar gum and preservatives in the canned c. milk either, but I have yet to find a brand that doesn't add guar gum.

Avoid all these pitfalls and drink coffee black if you can stomach it.... I use a French press which I think is the ideal way to brew coffee apart from espresso, it gives a nice crema, and stirring the hell out of it as in bulletproof coffee would a disaster of sediment. A good coffee is so much easier to drink sans accoutrements.
