"Perhaps Oliver Wendell Holmes was sipping coconut oil coffee when he said, 'The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.' This blend of coconut oil and unsalted, grass-fed organic butter in your coffee is definitely something to write about!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I left out the butter and added a tsp of sugar per cup of coffee. I liked the light coconut taste, and the thin layer of foam. If you use a blender, you should use one with a lid that screws on, or wait until the coffee is cooler. The steam will force the lid off otherwise.
Don't think I'll ever make this again. Really should give this 2 1/2 stars. Maybe my coffee wasn't strong enough because it just tasted like oily coconut.
I was very skeptical until I tried it and wow, it was exactly like a latte.
I loved this! The foam was great and the flavor, rich! Please note: Any one expecting a sweet St*rbucks drink will be seriously disappointed. So sip with an open mind ;o) With that said, if you want to sweeten it I suggest you do so before combining with other ingredients. Blend it, add the butter & oil and blend as directed. I added cinnamon after the fact and it did not blend at all. I loved it just the same, though. Enjoy!
I "get" this recipe. Not only is this recipe paleo, but you are starting out your day with healthy fats for your brain. We have been using ghee in our coffee but this is awesome blended with coconut oil. You don't need sugar and cream, this is delicious as is!
Like others have stated this coffee is great and hard to imagine that adding coconut oil and butter create something so good. Until I made it myself and drank a cup I too was skeptical. The coconut oil and butter add just enough sweetness, lighten the color, and create a delicate foamy topping. If you try really hard to taste coconut oil or butter you can detect a slight hint but only because you know it's in there. Coconut oils vary in flavor with some having a very prominent coconut flavor and others none, I used a coconut oil with a prominent coconut flavor and my coffee still tasted like coffee. Better to go "lighter" on the measurements of coconut oil and butter than to go "heavy" so best to measure and not eye the amounts. I would make this again in a heartbeat! THANKS for sharing such a unique and delicious way to drink coffee.
This is called "Bulletproof Coffee." It's a thing.
What a treat! Like other reviewers mentioned, this is not sweet at all, so add sugar if you need to after making your black cup of coffee in the beginning (I am fine with unsweetened coffee so I didn't). Beautiful foam on top just like a latte. Great recipe!
