As usual, I first heard about Caveman Coffee and the Caveman Coffee Co. via Joe Rogan on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience and via his Twitter account. This had me curious because Joe’s always been a big fan of Bulletproof Coffee and now he’s promoting something else. To complicate matters further, the Caveman Coffee he was drinking on his podcast was made the same way as Bulletproof Coffee: with butter!
After a little digging I discovered that Caveman Coffee Co. was started by Tait Fletcher (friend of Joe Rogan; stuntman; former MMA fighter) with former UFC fighter Keith Jardine. Tait also happens to be a friend of Dave Asprey, the man behind Bulletproof Coffee. Without getting into all the drama that there appears to be between Tait and Dave, Tait seems to be taking Dave’s approach to coffee and putting his own spin on it.
Caveman Coffee Co. sells two types of coffee along with Bulletproof-esque accoutrements like MCT oil and butter for the coffee. One of the coolest items at the CCC website is the coffee bell, which is a kettlebell-shaped coffee mug.
So is Caveman Coffee as good as Bulletproof Coffee? I can’t state my personal preference as I’ve never had Caveman Coffee, but I imagine it’s quite similar since both are supposed to be prepared in a similar manner. Both are also purported to be very high quality beans with little-to-no traces of mycotoxins and mold.
But is Caveman Coffee as healthy as Bulletproof Coffee? That’s the million dollar question. According to Joe Rogan, Tait had Caveman Coffee tested and it came back mycotoxin free while the sample of Bulletproof Coffee Tait provided for testing had traces of mold. Dave says this is likely because Tait used an inferior form of testing. Who knew coffee could be so dramatic?
At any rate, Caveman Coffee is now on my radar and it’s something I’ll keep an eye on. I’m considering giving it a try once the results of the testing compared to Bulletproof Coffee are released. I’m also very curious about the White Gold beans at the CCC. I don’t think I’ve ever had coffee made from white beans before!
At the end of the day, it’s all about choices. Dave can do his thing, and while it might be just a little questionable that his friend decided to start his own coffee company that’s a little too similar to Dave’s, Tait’s putting his own spin on it. For us consumers, more options is a good thing!
I must have missed this late last week when the new Onnit Hemp Force Vanill-Acai protein powder dropped, but in celebration of the new product release, Onnit also put all of its food products on sale at 16% off. You don’t have to enter an Onnit coupon code, either. Everything’s on sale within the Foods category on the Onnit website.
Things like the original Hemp Force ChocoMaca, the aforementioned Hemp Force Vanill-Acai, Hemp Force bars, Bulletproof Coffee, either bags or in bundles, and so many other things too numerous to mention here in one paragraph.
Another interesting item that’s on sale at 16% off is the Blendtec WildSide blender. This is the ultimate blender if you like making smoothies, or even your own salad dressings and things of that nature. This is the blender that Joe Rogan owns and uses on a daily basis to blend up his Hulk Loads. Yes, they are expensive with a regular retail price of $500, but now you can get one at 16% off.
I wish I wrote about this sale earlier, but as I said, I didn’t catch it in time. That being said, there’s still time left if you act quickly. The 16% off food products sale ends on Monday, September 30, 2013 at 11:59 CST, which is 12:59AM EST or 9:59PM PST. That’s today! Now’s the time to grab that blender you want, to try the new Hemp Force Vanilla, or to stock up on other Onnit food products.
Whenever the choice comes down to two options, whether it’s Keurig or Tassimo, VHS or Beta, or even HD-DVD or Blu-ray, I always seem to make the wrong choice. This was the case when it came to my coffee, as I chose a Tassimo over the Keurig. While Tassimo does have some good options if you like lattes and things of that nature, the Keurig does have one thing going for it that the Tassimo doesn’t: Bulletproof Coffee!
Now don’t get too excited just yet, as Bulletproof Coffee isn’t available in the little K-cups we Keurig owners have come to know and love. To make Bulletproof Coffee in your Keurig coffee maker, you need to buy a reusable K-cup. So you’re not only helping the environment by eliminating empty K-cup after empty K-cup from clogging up our landfills, you’re getting arguably some of the best coffee on the market, made in the most popular and easiest to use coffee maker.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before somewhere on this blog as I’ve written about Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee a number of times, but this will be the first time I’ve dedicated a blog post to it. At any rate, reusable K-cups can be found virtually anywhere that K-cups are found, but if you haven’t been able to locate one yourself, Amazon has one available along with Bulletproof Coffee and all of its accoutrements, such as Bulletproof MCT Oil.
Before purchasing though, make sure to check the model of your Keurig, as some reusable K-Cups like the Ekobrew Reusable K-Cup is not compatible with the following models: Keurig B30, B130, B150, B155, B3000, the Vue Brewer, or Mr. Coffee KG-5. If the Keurig machine you have isn’t one of those listed, you’re in luck! It will now be that much easier to make your Bulletproof Coffee each morning.
