That said, I am not convinced the negatives always outweigh the positives in terms of health and performance. Not to mention, my caffeine tolerance is minimal after years of complete cold turkey, so now after a double shot of espresso, I look like a crack addict going through withdraws.
In the past I have leaned towards “Bulletproof ® Coffee” and personally I think that it’s a lot better blend than most of the sugar-laden drinks coming across the bar at Starbucks. In short, they make good stuff, try them out.
Tim Ferriss also just recently put out his version of Bulletproof Coffee using Tea that he calls “Titanium Tea“, which I havent tried, so can’t comment.
I have been experimenting with different blends the past few years and have finally come up with one that I am happy enough with to be released to the public. That said, I prefer espresso so I am calling it “The Kevlar Cappuccino” with obvious intentional humorous reference and name props going to my buddy Brian from the surf line up.

(Note: To avoid repetition all ingredients listed are recommended organic)
Grass Fed Unsalted Ghee (1 Tablespoon)
Coconut Oil (1 Tablespoon) *lots of options here, this one is just my favorite

Ceylon Cinnamon (1/4 Teaspoon)
Turmeric (1/4 teaspoon) *be warned, turmeric can stain clothing
Cayenne Pepper (pinch)
Unsweetened Almond or Coconut Milk (1/2 cup)

Kevlar Cappuccino Directions-
Step 1- Make espresso
Step 2- As espresso is brewing, combine ghee, coconut oil, cacao, cinnamon, turmeric & cayenne in a blender.
Step 3- When espresso is done brewing, pour into the blender and blend on low speed until all ingredients are combined and look creamy. (note the longer you blend, the colder it will get. 10 seconds is usually about right.) Pour into cup.
Step 4 – Combine 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 teaspoon coconut nectar. Use milk steamer or simply place in the microwave and froth with an aerolatte.
Step 5 – Pour the milk and froth into the espresso and top with cinnamon & cacao and you’re in the ballgame.
There you have it: The Kevlar Cappuccino.
