Bulletproof® Coffee powerfully energizes you, keeps your focus rock steady, and delivers crucial nutrient density far beyond expectations. Easy to make, Bulletproof® Coffee combines three synergistic elements: Upgraded™ Coffee blended with Brain Octane™ Oil, and unsalted grass-fed butter or ghee. Your result is a frothy mug of morning dynamite.
Upgraded™ Coffee consists of best-of-the-best coffee beans, selected by entrepreneur and coffee fanatic, Dave Asprey. Dave persisted until he found coffee beans grown, picked and processed to result in a coffee that always makes you feel great, delivers highest performance (alertness), harbors the lowest possible mold toxins and heavy metal load, and satisfies all your coffee-craving taste buds.
Brain Octane™ Oil
Most short-chain medium-chain triglycerides come with an unpleasant goat-like smell and taste, but we use a unique, time consuming, proprietary process to reduce the offending and odorous free fatty acids. Brain Octane™ Oil is completely tasteless and odorless – perfect for mixing with foods!
Brain Octane™ Oil comes from a combination of two sources, coconut and palm kernels. Because sustainability is Bulletproof, we source Brain Octane™ Oil from 100% sustainable coconut palms, and our palm kernel growers are working to achieve a completely sustainable and certified palm-farming model.
Together, They Make Bulletproof Coffee
Coffee with Brain Octane™ Oil and butter tastes awesome, and the two are more powerful together than apart. Coffee transports the Brain Octane™ Oil into the cells faster and Brain Octane™ Oil serves as the synergist to increase absorption of coffee’s major minerals. Grass-fed butter provides some unique, must-have fatty acids that deliver much needed health benefits including healthy hormones.
Recipe from Dave Asprey: How to Make Your Coffee Bulletproof®…And Your Morning Too
When people hear more than half my calories come from healthy fats, one of the most common questions after “Why?” is “How?”
I start the day with a cup of Bulletproof® Coffee. I learned about the power of butter at 18,000 feet of elevation near Mt. Kailash in Tibet. I staggered into a guest house from the -10 degree weather and was literally rejuvenated by a creamy cup of yak butter tea. The biohacker in me asked, “why?” and after a couple years of careful research, that was the genesis of the recipe below, which is today, used by Billboard recording artists before they go on stage, world champion athletes, and some of the world’s top executives, because it has a massive impact on cognitive function.
It was John Patrick Henry’s 2nd cousin’s boyfriend Juan Valdez who said, “Give me high-end coffee or give me death.” That’s because toxins in cheap coffee steals your mental edge and actually makes you weak, but clean coffee is actually healthy, and gives you important antioxidants.
So, I use the lowest toxin, highest performance coffee there is (I know, because I created it and tested it!) I brew it, and then I blend unsalted, grass-fed butter into it, along with an extract of coconut oil that improves brain energy. Yes, butter. All the benefits of healthy milk fat with none of the damaging denatured casein proteins found in cream. It makes for the creamiest, most satisfying cup of coffee you’ve ever had. It will keep you satisfied with level energy for 6 hours if you need it, and because I’m having it for breakfast, I’m programming my body to burn fat for energy all day long!

- Brew 1 cup of coffee using filtered water, just off the boil, with 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof® Coffee Beans. (French Press is easiest.)
- Add in 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane™ or Upgraded™ MCT Oil to the hot coffee (It’s STRONG – start with 1 tsp. and work up over several days)
- Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee
- Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte
It’s really fast and easy to prepare. Realise salted coffee is a crime. Do not do this with salted butter. Bleah.
We have created a list of local butter sources for you. Or find another grass-fed brand of butter, it really matters because corn or soy-fed cows don’t make butter with the same fats. Those butters don’t blend well, don’t taste good, and don’t make you feel Bulletproof.
Grass-fed butter is much healthier than other butter. It doesn’t make cholesterol levels worse, it optimizes them! Starting your day with grass-fed butter will give you lots of energy and it will give your body healthy fats that it will use to make cell walls and hormones.
If you’re like most of my friends who try this, your body is so starved for healthy fats that you feel like you can’t get enough. It will take your body a week or two to fully turn on its fat digestion systems when you switch to a high healthy fat breakfast of Bulletproof Coffee. If at first it is a little too rich, try using less butter initially then build up to the amount you like. Taking a betaine HCl or digestive enzyme supplement with your coffee will also help your body digest the butter.
Try this just once, with at least 2 Tbs of butter, and have nothing else for breakfast. You will experience one of the best mornings of your life, with boundless energy and focus. It’s amazing.
After one drink of Bulletproof® Coffee, you’ll never be tempted to eat fat-free, insulin-raising, fat-storing toast and oatmeal breakfasts again
