Butter Coffee

I posted five years ago about Norwegian Egg Coffee. But egg isn't the only unusual thing that people add to their coffee. A few years ago, there was a fad for butter coffee, aka Bulletproof Coffee. As the name implies, you mix butter into your coffee. People often add in some coconut oil as well. Apparently the butter binds with the caffeine, giving a longer, more powerful caffeine buzz. According to testimonials, it doesn't taste bad at all.

I'd be willing to give butter coffee a try, but I'll give mayonnaise coffee a pass.

I wonder if milk (w/fat) performs the same function as butter, or if there is something special about butter.

Why would you want to adulterate a perfectly good cup of coffee with any additives? If your brew is that bad then you need a better grade of coffee bean. I prefer medium roast arabica beans, not robusta, and never a "french roast" which I look upon as what I call the "triple b": Bad Beans Burnt to cover inferior grade coffee beans.
