I’ll admit that I was a little worried when I received my first order of Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee. Why? Because I bought five pounds of the stuff, so whether I liked it or not, I was going to drink it! Also, I was a little concerned with how the coffee was going to taste. I mean, I used to drink my coffee with cream and sugar, so it was going to be a big change for me going without both of those and instead substituting in grass-fed butter and Bulletproof Upgraded MCT oil.
I won’t get into the preparation of Upgraded Coffee, and I’ll get right to what you want to know: how did I like it compared to my regular coffee? Well, I like regular coffee, but Upgraded Coffee is on another level. I honestly didn’t think I would like it as much as I did. The grass-fed butter and MCT oil combined to make one of the creamiest, smoothest coffees that I’d ever tasted, and best of all, it was guilt-free.
So the first test was passed: I liked how it tasted. But did I notice any of the effects that Dave said I would? After my first cup, I did feel better. I had more energy, felt more alert, and I wasn’t looking at the clock by 10AM wondering when lunch would roll around. I now substitute breakfast with two cups of Upgraded Coffee along with the butter and MCT oil.
Is there a downside to the Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee? The only negative I can attribute to the product is the cost. Most people will find it expensive compared to what they’d find at the grocery store, costing just under $19 per bag from the Onnit website. But when you work out that a single up costs less than fifty cents, it suddenly seems more appealing than a $5 grande from Starbucks, and it will taste better too.
How you prepare Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee is not the same process you would take if you were making an average cup of Joe at home. The process is a little more time consuming and even has a few steps that will leave most people scratching their heads. But this recipe will produce what many people consider to be one of the best cups of coffee they’ve ever had.
What sets Upgraded Coffee apart from most cups of coffee is that it’s not ready to drink once it’s brewed. The Upgraded Coffee recipe actually starts with two cups of brewed coffee added to a preheated blender. Yes, a blender! Next, instead of cream and sugar, add about two tablespoons of grass-fed butter and 30 grams of Bulletproof Upgraded MCT oil, though any MCT oil will do. Finally, blend it until there’s a frothy head of foam. What your left with looks quite similar to a pint of Guinness.
It’s important when perparing Upgraded Coffee to use grass-fed butter and not salted butter. The grass-fed butter is a key ingredient because it’s actually much better for you than other butter. It contains healthy fats and actually optimizes your cholesterol rather than making it worse. You’ll notice you have much more energy and feel better than you would drinking Starbucks, for example.
Bulletproof Upgraded MCT Oil is actually an optional ingredient, though you could use coconut oil if you have that on hand instead. The idea behind adding either of these two ingredients is that it provides energy and helps you lose weight as well. Starting your day with a little bit added to your Upgraded Coffee could be just the kick you need to get you over the mid-morning hump until lunchtime without feeling groggy or sluggish.
Without sounding too much like an advertisement or press release, Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee is unlike any coffee you’ve ever had before. It has literally taken its creator Dave Asprey years to determine the problems with the conventional coffee we drink, and then put into action the steps necessary to remedy these problems and create the ultimate coffee that’s not only delicious, but performance enhancing as well. Hence the name Upgraded Coffee.
One of the main reasons many of us start our days with a cup of coffee each morning is that we feel that it helps wake us up and the caffeine gives us a boost of energy to get us through until lunchtime. The largest problem Dave found with traditionally grown coffee beans is that they actually contain toxins that can ultimately make us feel worse than we would if we hadn’t had a cup of coffee at all. For many people, this can mean headaches, jitters, crankiness, and it could even make you more tired.
Upgraded Coffee is grown to have the lowest toxin content compared to traditional coffee. The beans are grown at high altitude in Guatemala on a Passive Organic family-owned farm, free of chemicals, herbicides, and pesticides. They are then hand-picked at the height of freshness and processed right after to ensure low levels of mycotoxins. This is a more expensive process compared to typical methods where beans are left outside to ferment and grow moldy simply because it’s easier to remove the outer layer of the bean.
After processing, the beans are then sent to the United States where they are roasted under the strictest of conditions in small batches. Such attention to detail ensures that Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee is crafted from what Dave Asprey believes are the ultimate coffee beans. As a result, Upgraded Coffee drinkers can produce at home what many feel is the ultimate coffee beverage.
