I have written a couple of pieces about butter coffee recently.
The most recent was about a cold brew butter coffee in a can.
But for those of you who like it hot, there is now an alternative to going through the regular hassle of making your own butter coffee.
Let me step back a bit. For those of you who don’t know about it, butter coffee is made by brewing a regular pot or mug of coffee and then, instead of adding milk or cream, you add a mixture of butter and coconut oil.
This idea was first brought to North America by the folks at Bulletproof coffee.
The thing is, it’s a bit of a pain to make.
First you have to source some grass-fed butter and coconut oil. Then you have to blend your coffee with the butter and oil in a blender. And then you have the big cleanup.
Well, it seems there is now an easier way to make butter coffee at home.
The folks at Ninja Goat Nutrition were kind enough to send me a few of their fatCoffee pouches.
Each pouch contains a mixture of organic ghee (made from grass-fed butter), organic coconut oil, MCT oil, whole powdered goats’ milk, organic cocoa butter and organic ground vanilla bean.
And there’s a mocha version that contains organic ghee (made from grass-fed butter), organic coconut oil, MCT oil, whole powdered goats’ milk, organic cocoa butter and organic cocoa powder.
Neither version contains any stabilizers, preservatives or artificial ingredients.
And, as with all butter coffees, there are several health claims attached.
How do you use fatCoffee?
It’s pretty simple. A lot simpler than finding your own ingredients and using a blender.
Here’s the process, in 5 easy steps.
1. Make a cup or mug of coffee.
2. Pour the coffee into a “shakable” container like a rigid water bottle.
3. Tear the top off the pouch and pour the fatCoffee mix into the bottle.
4. Screw the top on tight and then shake the bottle for a good 30 seconds.
5. Pour the mixture into your mug, and you’re done.
It’s really simple. And the result is a creamy coffee with a slight froth on the top.
I’d say these guys are definitely onto something.
They have jumped onto the butter coffee trend and have made the whole process a whole lot more convenient.
