There’s a new trend going around that may forever change the way you drink coffee. Instead of the usual cream and sugar, many people are now adding butter to their cup of joe, and they say it’s just about the greatest thing ever.
Butter and coffee — what’s all the hype about? You might think blending butter with your coffee falls somewhere between completely bizarre and totally intriguing. But developing a cult following like this, there has to be some merit behind it, right?
A double espresso blended to a thick froth with a tablespoon each of butter and coconut oil, it sounds like a heart attack in a cardboard cup. Shockingly, this baffling combo is one of the most popular treats in the Keto Diet, which is a highly popular low-carb, high-fat diet.
Grocery stores are stocking up too, offering ready-to-drink “butter coffees,” creamers and additives. But if you’re too lazy to go out, it’s also easy to make at home, with many recipes on the internet.
To most people, putting butter in their coffee sounds skeptical if not borderline dangerous, but not all kinds of butter are bad for you. In this case, there is only one kind of butter you should put in your coffee: unsalted and grass-fed butter. And not just any coffee, the coffee beans have to be low-toxin – not the ones you find at the supermarket or Starbucks.
While others are still having a hard time believing that this butter coffee is actually good for you and could be added to your weight loss plan, fans of the beverage are already drinking it as a meal substitute.
They claim the combination of ingredients makes it the perfect breakfast-in-a-cup, giving you a prolonged energy hit, which sharpens your focus, burns calories, strips you of excess body fat and leaves you feeling full until lunchtime.
But butter is very high in saturated fat, and some health experts caution that it can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. And while this elixir will make you feel full, it’s worth noting that adding the recommended two tablespoons of butter to your coffee will also add about 200 calories.

Naming is an unusual process. Let’s face it — be it food or person, names are extremely important to us. Very often, the first piece of information we have about anything or anyone is the name. If you’re at a noisy party with hundreds of people around and someone calls your name, it’ll rise up above the din and you’ll hear it.
