3 Reasons Why Bulletproof Coffee is a Bad Idea

Butter is awesome. Saturated fat is awesome. There is no doubt about it… they have been unfairly demonized. They’ve been blamed for health problems that they really didn’t have anything to do with. Fortunately, the world is slowly but surely abandoning the old diet myths and embracing these foods once again. However… it’s important to keep in mind that everything in nutrition depends on dosage and context. Just because a little bit of something is healthy, it doesn’t mean that a whole ton of it is healthier, or even safe. This brings us to the topic at hand… a huge trend called Bulletproof coffee. If you don’t know what this is, then it is a recipe for a coffee drink that replaces breakfast: 2 cups of coffee.2 tablespoons (at least) of grass-fed, unsalted butter.1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil.All mixed in a blender. This is promoted by Dave Asprey, the man behind the website Bulletproof Executive. I’ve written about all of them before and include them in my diet, every day.

Although we tested making cold-brew concentrate in a French press—and enjoyed some of the results—buying a French press just for this job is not worth it.

Much as we did for our guides to coffee makers and pour-over coffee gear, we looked at both preparation and final product to determine the best cold-brew choice. How we picked and tested Cold brew makes better iced coffee than refrigerated hot-brewed coffee. We used these guides and reviews to choose three dedicated cold-brew coffee makers to test.

Different Brewing Methods

Brand History. Tools of the Coffee Trade. Coffee Shops. Recipes. Teas. Difference Between Caffeine and Nicotine. Caffeine vs Nicotine Caffeine and nicotine are two of the most commonly abused drugs in various forms.

Difference Between Caffeine and Nicotine

While coffee is the substance (read beverage) that is consumed by people as an energy drink that contains caffeine, the most popular source of nicotine intake is cigarette. Both drugs have effects that are described differently by those who are used to them. However, ask a person and he will tell that he takes coffee to get energy and to stay alert. The same cannot be said about nicotine as the effect dies down in course of time and body develops a dependence upon it. There is no doubt that our bodies have no natural requirement of either nicotine or caffeine. While nicotine is produced from tobacco plant and is found in cigarette packs and cigars easily available in the market, caffeine is produced from coffee plant and sold openly in the form of coffee powder and tea bags in all parts of the world.
