Bulletproof Coffee and What Your Coffee Choice Says About You.

I am a coffee purist

I love coffee. Hot, dark, steamy, full-flavored, robust coffee.My automatic brew coffee pot has a fresh pot of coffee ready for me ten minutes before my alarm goes off. The aroma of the fresh brewed pot is the first thing I smell in the morning. That's my idea of a great morning!

 My daily coffee is Maxwell House French Roast. Black. No cream or sugar.

I have coffee that I prefer to drink, such as Folger's Gourmet Blend, but that isn't what I usually drink. Why not the Folger's you ask? The Maxwell House French Roast is consistently a dollar or two cheaper, that's why it isn't coming home with me. Budget, budget, budget.

Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

One of my Facebook friends drinks "Bullerproof Coffee". The recipe is interesting and my cousin, Sarah wants to try drinking it. Me? I don't think so. I just want pure, unadulterated, dark roast coffee in my cup. Call me a purist.

  • I drink Bulletproof Coffee from The Bulletproof Executive. I grind my beans and use a french press. I drink it black or with butter and oil during the week. (bold type added by me)
  • Sallee Bonham I have learned something new. Never heard of this before. Why butter or oil?

  •  I use both in the same cup of coffee. 2 tbsp butter (grass-fed, organic, unsalted) and 2 tbsp MCT oil, or Medium Chain Triglycerides oil.  I drink it for energy and because it's usually hours before I get a chance to eat. This fills me up and gives me plenty of energy to get through the morning. It's called "Bulletproof Coffee". created by the same guy I buy my beans from.

Do You Recognize Yourself ?

The black coffee drinker does seem to be fairly accurate in describing some of my character traits. Leave a comment and tell me if you think the table accurately describes you. This is for fun, so don't take it too heart.
