I finally did it – I broke down and tried Bulletproof Coffee. hero1For two days, I eschewed my normal two cups of yerba mate and made fancy, French press coffee, blended oil and butter into it, and drank its rich, tasty goodness. What happened after that convinced me that my true productivity doesn’t come from coffee or extreme caffeine after all.

What Is Bulletproof Coffee?

Created by Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Coffee is a recipe made with coffee, grass-fed, unsalted butter (or ghee), and “Brain Octane” oil, which is supposed to be better than coconut oil. The theory (still yet to be scientifically tested and highly debateable) is that Bulletproof Coffee is healthy and provides a stronger sense of alertness than regular coffee.
