Bpc - I Must Be Doing It Wrong

Hi,


 


Just a quick question seeing as everyone seems to absolutely love the taste of BPC.


 


I love coffee, absolutely addicted. Yet when I make my BPC even just the smell makes me shudder and gives me a headache. And drinking it is difficult to say the least. Also I get the feeling of drinking straight oil.


 


Here's how I make it.


 


2 tbsp coffee grounds in french press, brewed for 4-6mins


25 - 50g grass fed butter


1 tbsp MCT


 


All blended to the frothy perfection it is meant to be.


 


I am going to attempt it made on ghee, but I am concerned that I may be one of the few who just can't drink it. Which is bad because as I said I am addicted to coffee.


 


Has anyone else had this issue? And if you have, how did you fix it?

    thats the method I use and it seems to be awesome. I can't think of a better way to have the coffee... 


    I think using an aeropress instead of a french press is a good start.. and using a stainless steel filter in the aeropress, too... 


  • Thanks for the replies. Currently saving up for an aeropress, nicked the french press from my parents house last week. I'll give your method a go Stackineuros to see if it works better. I'm going to be bouncing off the walls with 2 cups of bulletproof seeing as I've gone from 6 espresso's a day to 1 bulletproof a day :P


  • Are you using the BP Beans? And how long have you been using MCT Oil? If it's not very long, it might be detox effects, and you may want to scale back to 1 tsp of MCT, instead of 1 TBSP. 


  • Not using the BP beans, but using the best quality I can find. Been using MCT oil on and off for months in smoothies, but I'll trying scaling it back seeing as scaling back the butter didn't change a thing. Should be getting the BP beans in the next two weeks


  • Awesome. And how does this particular coffee treat you when you brew it in the exact same way, sans butter and MCT?

  • Tastes great, no jitters, no shakes, no nausea, just a nice caffeine buzz.


  • Yeah, I'm totally feeling that dialing back on the MCT to 1 tsp, and working your way back up will help out :) 


    Alternatively, you can also run the test of doing no coffee, but blending the butter and mct with hot water. See if that affects you. You could also just eat a plain tbsp of MCT straight off the spoon, and see what that does for you. So many fun combinations of tests to run! 


     


    But yeah, my guess is too much MCT starting off.


  • Butter and water? I think I just dry retched a bit :P At least its only a few things to test, unlike when I had to test for food allergies *headdesk*


  • i only make it in two cups, cause hot water is so essential to a awesome BP cawfee experience.. 


    You could chug it down in one big cup, but I add the hot water so it goes easily into two big cups and you can sip it for ages..

    also make sure the butter you're using is unsalted

    Roxas: Headache and shuddering. Involuntary reactions from her body. It's a sign that something is going on. As well as a sign that it's something her body doesn't agree with.

     

    Example, my morning 1 L of water with 1/2-1 tsp of Hima salt. If I can taste the saltiness in the water, my body goes into 'flush' mode a few hours later (or sooner).

     

    There was the article of the woman who had bashed BPC, due to her nausea and headache (and other things), which we rapidly deduced was because she way overdid it with the MCT Oil, and her body was freaking out.

     

    So yes, 'bad taste' can be a sign from your body that it's getting too much of something. Another example is if I'm eating certain foods, and 1 moment they taste great, the next moment.. ehh. And same with the next. It's often a sign that you've had enough of that food. And since the item in BPC which we know of that generally causes headache symptoms happens to be MCT Oil.. my deduction is that she's getting too much MCT oil, her body is reacting negatively (even when smelling it, since IT knows that something is off-balance for her body) and thus she outta scale it back to 1 tsp. :wink:

     


    Amber: water and butter blended up isn't too bad. just don't make a lot of it :)

  • For some people, if they're really into coffee, BPC might not do it for them. At the end of the day, BPC isn't coffee in the same way that an espresso or a long black is coffee. It' a coffee-based drink, like a mocha frappacino. Albeit healthier and tastier imho.


     


    There's no law that says you have to like it and if you don't there's something wrong with you. Maybe you can learn to like it. Maybe not. If not, too bad. Sounds like you were enjoying your coffee just fine in the first place!
