How to make buttered coffee with MCT oil and Death Wish

Supercharge your morning coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil
Buttered coffee with MCT oil seems to be all the rage lately, but why? For someone like me, it’s a great way to skip breakfast and keep my energy high until lunch rolls around. Not only am I getting a long-lasting boost from the caffeine, but I’m also getting benefits from healthy fats contained in the grass-fed butter and MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides). Plus, when blended together, this coffee tastes like a delicious latte. I’ve even discovered ways to pack in more health benefits of drinking my breakfast and making it taste better than ever.
For this recipe, I use Death Wish Coffee, but you can use any coffee you like brewed any way you like. While it’s great to get the caffeinated spin kick to the face from the world's strongest coffee, the dark bold taste also has the perfect flavor profile to complement the other ingredients of buttered coffee. Lighter roasted coffees will sometimes leave you with a hot cup of butter water.
