Bulletproof Coffee taste lacking

Not wanting to wait for my BP beans to arrive, I bought some from a local roaster I know that is fanatical about the quality of his beans. The BP coffee this made was amazing and I couldn't wait until the next morning to have my next cup.

My 5 lb bag of beans arrived and I started using it yesterday and now all I can taste is the oil and butter. I upped the amount of coffee this morning and still can get no coffee taste. Tomorrow I'm going to double it which will hopefully work but even if it does, I just turned $16/lb coffee into $32.

I used my Aeropress yesterday and did cold brew for 20 hours for today's.

Anyone have any suggestions?

    Different beans, different roast, different flavors.

    If you prefer the flavor of your local roaster stick with them.

  • The original light roast has a pretty delicate taste and flavor profile, though I enjoyed it while I had it. Haven't tried the newer medium and dark roasts. Cacao powder and occasionally pumpkin spice are my go-to ways to add punch to my brew. Good luck!

  • To give this process a fair shot, I figured I need to do it 100% which includes the beans and I've got 5 lbs so I guess I'll just be using a lot of coffee until it's gone.

  • cold brew is prob the best for his stuff
    the 'Mentalist' is a slight improvement, but no 5lb...
