Is It Necessary To Drink The Foam, Too?
Fiance and I have been transitioning more and more into Bulletproof for the past seven or so months, finally got our finances settled and got the MCT oil (a grinder and the BP beans are next on our list, but we use fair trade organic coffee in the meantime), but there's just one thing we've never been able to stomach.
I don't know if this is a common thing, but the taste of foam on coffee has always made the both of us gag so much! I scoured the entire coffee section on this forum looking to see if it's ever been mentioned, but found nothing. So I'd like to pose the question, since I can't seem to find an answer on my own: Is it really necessary to drink the foam as well? Are there any particular benefits to drinking the foam? Until now we've been skimming it off the top of our drinks in the morning, wondering if it's actually a detriment to do so. I otherwise enjoy my coffee with a tsp of raw honey, and the flavor is very enjoyable (our barista makes a really good espresso shot, so it's super smooth), and we've tried putting a few different spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) in with it in the past to no good effect (actually just choked on it more at that rate once it got to the bottom of the mug).
So basically, what exactly are we rinsing down the sink every morning, and should we just suck it up and choke down that bitter foam just for the benefits?
