Lately we have become fascinated by Butter Coffee (more popularly known as ‘bulletproof’ coffee). Since our opening in January we have had so many customers ask us about it. So the other day whilst in a supplement store (a place you would never normally find me) I couldn’t help but pick up a bottle of MCT Oil (often used in butter coffee recipes).
So what is it?
Essentially it’s that weird “have you ever tried butter in your coffee?” thing a friend may have asked you in passing, that you probably thought – uh NO YUCK! Don’t worry, I get it! The thought of adding a hunk of oily butter into my morning coffee is not something I find particularly appealing. However, after doing a little bit of research and hearing some great stories from customers (as you do owning a cafe) here I am willing to give it a try.
For our recipe we are blending 8-12 oz of coffee derived from single origin coffee beans with 1 teaspoon of MCT oil and 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter. Served warm!
MCT Oil: Medium Chain Fatty Acids – easy to digest, beneficial fats, processed in the liver, give fast and long lasting energy that is easily absorbed by the body.
Grass-fed, unsalted butter – higher in Omega-3 fatty acids than regular butter and high in Vitamin K2.
From what I read on the internet people swear by this buttery concoction. Butter coffees are said to be a high performance drink. One cup each morning can increase your energy AND cognitive function. Who wouldn’t want the possibility of lasting energy, accelerated calorie burning and a mental boost? SIGN ME UP!
Okay so maybe you’re interested and want to give it a go too? Well in typical Wonderlust style (where we hold nothing back) we will have it available for you to order from Saturday 14th October.
So come and join us on Saturday where we will push the boundaries again to keep you in a constant state of Wonder!
