Bulletproof Coffee


I am one of those people that cannot get anything done without my morning coffee and ever since we went on low-carb/keto, we discovered this little twist on your traditional coffee, called Bulletproof Coffee!

The idea behind this is that on low-carb/keto, your body runs off of fat instead of simple and complex carbohydrates, so when your body needs energy the most (the morning), you load your coffee with healthy fats to give you fuel for the day. 

For me, this is doubly beneficial since I need the energy (working nearly 18 hour days lately!) and also appreciate the unique taste.

For all my coffee making, I use a coffee siphon as I feel it produces the best results without investing in elaborate setups. They do take a little more attention (although faster to brew) then your standard drip filter, but if you are somewhat interested in coffee profiles, I highly recommend you look into a siphon

I also use a metal filter instead of the cloth one that comes with the siphon. The metal filter is reusable and lasts a very long time opposed to the cloth ones that you would have to throw away after a certain amount of use.

I usually make 5 cups of coffee, so that is how the directions will be laid out. If you would like to make more, I recommend the general rule of 1 Tbsp coffee beans for 1 cup of coffee, so 8 cups of coffee would call for 8 Tbsp coffee beans.

On a note, the siphon I use does have markers on the pot, from 5-8. I believe these markers indicate cups of coffee and not cups of measurement. When I tested this and put water up to the 5 marker, it only produced 3 cups in my measuring cup.

Now, let’s get started!

Total Time 6M                                          

Net Carb/Serv 0.5g                                 

Servings 5

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups of Water
  • 5 tbsp Whole Coffee Beans (or pre-ground if you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp Whip Cream per Cup
  • 1/4 tbsp Grass Fed Butter per Cup

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Add the water into the bottom portion of the siphon and bring to boil on high.

3) Meanwhile, take the siphon filter and place inside the top portion.

4) Grab the filter chain from the bottom and pull until the latch is secured on the external portion of the glass tube and set in the stand.

5) Place coffee beans into a coffee grinder and grind to medium (about 5-7 seconds on our grinder).

6) Place coffee grinds inside siphon top and set in the stand.

7) Once water is boiling, firmly press top portion into the bottom siphon. If done correctly, the pressure from the heat will cause the water to rise into the top portion (I know, our pot has seen better days)!

8) Let it boil for 45 seconds and then turn off heat.

9) After about 2 minutes, the coffee will fall back down into the bottom portion of the siphon.

10) Carefully remove the top portion (it will be hot!) and place into holding stand.

11) Pour coffee into a cup.

12) Place butter and whip cream into cup while coffee is hot so it will melt.

You have now just made a siphon Keto Bulletproof Coffee, hope you enjoy!
