Dave Asprey talks to me about how you can bulletproof your coffee with…his Bulletproof Coffee. There are molds and mycotoxins lurking in your coffee that may be giving you headaches and brain fog! I learned so much about coffee and how to improve my morning cup of joe.

What is Bulletproof Coffee?
The concept of Bulletproof Coffee is about using the highest quality coffee and adding brain enhancing fats to the coffee. Dave uses the lowest toxin, highest performance coffee there is (he knows, because he created it and tested it!), brews it, and then blends unsalted grass-fed butter into it, along with an extract of coconut oil that improves brain energy. Yes, butter. It makes for the creamiest, most satisfying cup of coffee you’ve ever had. It will keep you satisfied with level energy for 6 hours if you need it. And if you have it for breakfast, you will be programming your body to burn fat for energy all day long!

- Start with 1 cup (8 oz.) filtered water, just off the boil.
- Measure 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Coffee beans (approximately 2 rounded tablespoons per 6 oz. water) and brew strong black coffee using your favorite coffee brewing method. (Why this is important)
- Pour in 1 teaspoon Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Brain Octane™ or Bulletproof® Upgraded™ MCT Oil (build up to 1-2 tablespoons over several days).
- Add 1 tablespoon grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee (build up to 2 tablespoons or much more over several days).
- Mix in a blender for at least 20 seconds until the drink is frothy and looks like a creamy latte without a film of oil on the surface.
About Dave Asprey
Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproofexec.com, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent 15 years and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, upgraded his brain by more than 20 IQ points, and lowered his biological age while learning to sleep more efficiently in less time.
Dave has cultivated the idea of being “Bulletproof”, the state of high performance where you take control of and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way, if you were lucky enough to even know it was possible. Technology has changed the rules.
Dave founded The Bulletproof Executive to make these breakthroughs – and the body and brain you deserve — easily available to you in your everyday life.
