How to Make Butter or Bulletproof® Style Coffee

Butter, or "Bulletproof®" coffee is coffee made with butter and coconut oil, providing you with an energy boost and a smooth-textured coffee drink. The idea of "bulletproof" comes from the feeling some drinkers experience of having so much energy after it that they can plow through all sorts of work after.[1] It is inspired by the Tibetan traditional yak butter tea (aka po cha)
