Bulletproof Coffee

Any of you guys drink bulletproof coffee? Ive heard Joe Rogan banging on about it and figured I'f give it a try... until i saw the price.

Are there any equal (or better) alternatives?

I checked it out, no way I can justify spending that on coffee. Sounds really interesting, and like something I'd enjoy but can't help think I could get the same buzz and supposed health benefits elsewhere.

I saw when the ceo was on the JRE. He was a semi interesting guy but whenever someone I'm talking to alwats ties things back to buy my product or speaks overly confident outside of their field if expertise it puts me off them and their product.

I also don't drink coffee so I can't comment on the taste, I figure whenever something has conflicting research if you can just cut it out then it's probably better.

Isn't bulletproof coffee just coffee with butter in blended? I think bulleetproof is also a brand but from my understanding people claim adding butter to there morning coffee kick starts metabolism or something.

If you read the guy's site he says most coffee contains all kinds of toxins and is stripped of all its good qualities when major companies process it or something along those lines. The basic message is coffee is toxic but they purify it and make it healthy. Thats if you buy his pitch which I'm not sure if I do.

I've been reading up on this over the past few days. It certainly seems that the bulletproof© coffee is good but some of the claims are a bit far fetched. there also appears to be similar coffees that have the same benefits, but without the marketing for a fraction of the cost.

I struggle to listen to a guy telling me al sorts of amazing things about a certain coffee that ONLY he sells... especially when he's saying its at its best when you combine it with his own MCT oils and butters... which are also 3x the price of everywhere else.

Damn, I was hoping this was a thread on how drinking coffee can make you bulletproof.
