    First question what is the difference between heavy cream and butter? The last time I was making whipp cream and over whipped it I had made butter. The only advantage I can see with using butter instead of cream is it easier to find organic butter then cream.

    I am trying butter, coconut oil coffee for the first time, as I type this post. I think I will stick with heavy cream and a little coconut oil. A lot easier to make then butter and taste better.

    A friend told me about extra sharp cheddar in coffee. Now that is tastey.

    Gee - off this forum for awhile, and this thread has blossomed!
    Great to read these posts - I posted some questions over at the Bulletproof site and got zero response...
    I agree with what's been said about the toxins-everywhere-but-in-MY-product-type statements
    There are toxins in the toxins that have been toxifying my toxic toxicity - so I'm not sure about one person's claim that THEY'VE found a toxin-free source of coffee...
    I don't dispute that mold and other contaminants negatively effect folks' health on a large scale - but the battle I'm focused on is losing fat & gaining strength and mobility....
    To that end - on my rest days, I have a tank of my version of bulletproof coffee:
    2-2.5 Cups of Toddy Coffee concentrate
    2-3 T Kerrygold Unsalted Butter
    2-3 T Trader Joe's Organic Coconut Oil
    - heat the coffee in the microwave, pour it over the butter & coconut oil in a 20 ounce plastic cup, mix with a hand blender, pour into my travel mug, and head to work....
    I love the taste, and don't need to eat until 2-3pm, so it provides a break for my digestive system - maybe not in line with the IF rules and regs - but it works for me. It also is a great way to keep ketosis rolling...

    Does blending the coffee make any difference?
    Or is it just that you use whole beans that makes it a must?

    From what I have read, blending the coffee, butter, and MCT oil (or coconut oil) chops the oil bits down into chunks that are more easily handled by the digestive system. Haven't seen anything to confirm this so take it with a grain of salt (anyone able to confirm or explain better?).

    I thought I would post my experience so far. After reading the recipe I picked up some coconut oil and organic ghee from grass-fed cows. My experience was that 15oz of espresso, 2tbs of ghee, and 2tbs of coconut oil was too much for me. I was much more comfortable with 1tbs of each mixed with a teaspoon of cinnamon. A friend of mine suggested that maybe it was a question of building up to 2tbs of each, but I am not sure I see the need to work up to that. Like others, I did get noticeably hot for the first ten minutes or so, but no intestinal issues. I have been on the Warrior Diet, so my morning usually consists of a cup of kombucha and several cups of green tea. I would be interested to hear from Steve what he thinks of the compatibility of WD and BPC. Personally, I don't think this will be part of my daily routine.

    I also tried "bulletproof tea" using 16oz of jasmine green tea and 1tbs of ghee, 1tbs of coconut oil, and 1teaspoon of cinnamon. It was okay, but I prefer BPC.

    Without totally derailing this thread, I thought I would point out that two days ago I completed a 10 mile trail run in the afternoon on not much more than two cups of kombucha, 16oz of "BPT", and two bananas. I felt great. The kicker, however, was the following day (yesterday), I hit a VWC PR in the afternoon with 30 sets of 17 reps with the 20k bell on the 36:36 protocol. Similar to the day before, I had two cups of kombucha, 15oz of BPC, and some raw almonds. I could have hit 32 sets, but given what I had accomplished the day before, I thought I would leave some in the tank. Today I feel great, but I will be taking the next couple of days off from VWC. I wonder how much of my PR is attributed to the BPC. Maybe when I shoot for 32 sets I will do so without having BPC in the morning but keep the rest of my routine a constant.

    If you get butter from grass-fed cows, you get more nutrients and healthy fats. Heavy cream (unless it's from grass-fed cows) will not give you the same nutrients.

    I have been enjoying BPC very much. It gives me a satisfied feeling for hours, as well as a level energy curve.

    Something else I just learned about is the dangers of carrageenan something that is added to all heavy cream that I can find, even organic. Bullet proof coffee is making more sense.

    Hello Jakari,
    it is that I can't discover coconot oil in shop racks either. Is it essential to add this substance? I created it twice, just butter and dark coffee and I was really excellent and I definitely sensed the impact and always keep me fresh and active.

    I haven't really tried to track any health benefits, but I love the taste. I use grassfed organic butter and coconut oil. I used high altitude coffee ("mold-free"). You don't need to use his coffee.
