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.
I was recently asked what the difference between regular coffee and Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee was, so I decided to write a blog post to compare the two. The largest difference is how the beans are grown and how the beans are processed. The utmost care and attention to detail is given during every step to ensure the lowest level of molds and bacteria are present compared to conventional coffee beans that are rife with toxins that can negatively impact your health.
The beans used in Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee are grown and harvested on a high altitude family farm in Guatemala. No chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides are used on the beans while they grow. When ready, the berries are picked at peak ripeness by skilled laborers who are experienced coffee harvesters.
Typically beans are left in the sun to wither and dry or they’re pressed and fermented to remove the outside of the bean. Beans used in Bulletproof Coffee on the other hand are processed immediately after picking in a way that ensures no fermentation will take place. This process is more expensive but ensures a product that is free of mycotoxins. The beans are then sent to the United States where they are roasted in small batches by the country’s top roaster.
But how does the taste compare? Well, it does taste different if you follow the Bulletproof Coffee recipe, since you’re substituting cream and sugar for grass-fed butter and MCT oil or coconut oil. It won’t be like any coffee you’ve had before, and may take some getting used to. That being said, I find it to be delicious, creamy, and I prefer Bulletproof Coffee to a regular ol’ cup of Joe. Also, I still get the caffeine “boost” I’d get from drinking a regular cup of coffee, but without the “crash” and jitters afterwards that I would get from coffee made with sub-par beans.
In short, if you’re curious, I highly recommend giving Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee a try, which can be found at the Onnit website in 12 oz. bags, a two-pack, a bundle with Onnit Coconut Oil, and a bundle with Bulletproof MCT oil. There’s also a reusable K cup if you have a Keurig machine. If you don’t care for the taste with grass-fed butter and MCT/coconut oil, you can also make it black. After all, they are some of the best coffee beans you can buy.
