Yes, ambitious high performers and brain boosters are still putting butter and MCT oil in their daily coffee, me included. And while I love the added performance and boost my Bulletproof-inspired coffee gives me, sometimes you need to add a little flavor to your life.

This is why I began to concoct my Cuban infused butter coffee; half brain-hack, half morning party, this coffee will definitely get your morning started with some ambition.

What you’ll need:


cuban coffee

  • Coffee, preferably organic and/or single origin. I use Newman’s Own Organic Coffee in the K-Cups that we buy by the caseload at Sam’s Club. You can also grab great coffee from Onnit or right from the Bulletproof Coffee sensai himself, Dave Asprey.


kerrygold butter

  • Grass-Fed Butter. We use Kerry Gold which can be found at nearly all grocers across the US.


mct oil

  • MCT Oil (not just Coconut Oil). I have been loving the MCT Oil from Onnit. A bottle will typically last me close to a month.


cinnamon organic

  • Cinnamon. We like Simply Organic Cinnamon.


raw cacao powder

  • Raw Cacao Powder. We are currently scooping Organic World Berries Raw Cacao Powder


almond milk

  • Almond Milk


sweet drips

  • Butter Toffee Liquid Stevia. What can I say, I like my coffee a little sweet. I’ll sometimes swap the Butter Toffee for the Vanilla.

How it’s done:


  1. Brew the coffee. I use the Kuerig and make 2 quick cups (one for me and 1 for the lady).
  2. Throw the coffee in a blender, we use the Vitamix but nearly any blender will do. Scoop in 2 TSB of the GrassFed Butter and 2 TSB of the MCT Oil into the blender.
  3. Sprinkle in some of the cinnamon.
  4. Scoop a spoonful of the Raw Cacao power and add a good splash of the Coconut Milk. Finally, drop in 4-6 drops of the Liquid Stevia.
  5. Then blend. I let it go for 2-3 minutes to get it nice and frothy
  6. After pouring into your mug of choice, sprinkle some cinnamon on top and start your day as if you own the place.
