Remember “Bulletproof Coffee?” I first heard of it through serial experimenter and author, Tim Ferriss. A mixture of coffee, grass fed butter, and 100% pure coconut oil, bulletproof (or butter coffee) is an ancient Tibetan formulation that promises to suppress hunger, help you lose weight, think faster, and work out harder.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you should, it’s awesome. I never drank it as anything more than just coffee, so without adding the ketonic diet and exercising, I didn’t really see any major changes. Still, I always loved the taste. But….what a pain in the ass to make every day.
Enter Grass Fed Coffee. Just Grab, Shake, and Go! 5g carbs, NO sugar!, non-GMO, made in small batches – hell yeah I was excited to get samples to review.
Grass Fed Coffee uses cold brew coffee, which is low in acidity, making it easier on the digestive system. Coconut oil (or MCT – Medium Chain Triglycerides) are absorbed rapidly by the body – quick, clean fuel for the brain. Grass-fed cows produce butter that is higher in vitamins and antioxidants. than conventional grain-fed cows. This means slower absorption of the caffeine like a time release, so no jittery feeling and crashes.
I was sent 6 paks of Grass Fed Coffee, allowing me to try it in a variety of situations, both at home and on trips of varying length. It really is a great product to have around the house and to keep in your car or backpack. It’s a great pick-me-up and should last a long time as long as it hasn’t been opened.
While certainly tasty at room temperature, I definitely liked this butter coffee chilled. So…I froze it and really enjoyed it as a slushie. Highly recommended.
The only negative to me is that this product is in a Tetra Pak. I get glass is expensive and heavy to be used as a container for things meant to be consumed on-the-go. I, for one, am willing to accept the added weight in exchange for the capability of reuse and recyclability.
According to Grass Fed Coffee, their Tetra Paks are not only good for storage and portability, they now can also be recycled – check out https://www.recyclecartons.com/ to see if it’s available in your area.
Turns out that aseptic carton recycling is available at the new Midwest Basecamp World HQ, which makes me very happy. Hopefully that will be the case everywhere and the paks won’t be as much of an issue.
