To be honest, when I first heard of it I thought it sounded pretty gross. Buttery coffee? It sounded like something you’d have to force down while holding your nose.

Some people on a ketogenic, or low carbohydrate diet will add butter to their coffee to help them increase their daily fat intake and also to help in reducing their appetite. I must say, after drinking this “butter coffee” myself, I can say that it helps on both fronts. However, If you are watching your fat intake for any reason, this is definitely not going to be the beverage for you.

If you’d like to try putting some butter in your coffee, MF Coffee advises to start out with just a tablespoon of melted butter. The maximum we have ever added is 2 tablespoons. We believe that if you add too much fat initially, you may find yourself unexpectedly sprinting to the bathroom and this is absolutely not good.

With the extensive testing conducted, we find that butter goes much better with darker coffee grounds (which can be purchased on our website The flavours simply work well together. Also, because butter is mostly oil and coffee is water-based the two naturally repel each other. The way we’ve fixed this is by pouring the warm coffee into a plastic blender and then adding the butter and whatever else you’d like. This can a creamer, sugar, or maybe an essence like vanilla or cinnamon.

Whatever you decide, make your ‘butter coffee” with MFCoffee today.

We hope you enjoy, it's quite the treat!
