Starting my day off with butter coffee is a must. On any given day, you can open up my refrigerator and see it packed to the brim with beautiful, metallic gold, rectangular boxes, filled with rich, grass-fed Kerrygold butter just waiting to take a dip in my scalding cup of coffee.
I’m not alone in my love for this fatty beverage. “Bulletproof coffee,” as it’s called, has become a huge dietary trend over the last few years. But for Wisconsin residents who share my love of rich, full-fat, buttery caffeine, buying Kerrygold grass-fed butter within state lines just became a difficult and illegal act.
All Butter Is Not Created Equal
Bulletproof coffee is made by blending medium-chain triglyceride oil—a more concentrated form of coconut oil—and butter together with your morning coffee in order to form a thicker beverage whose consistency is similar to that of a frothy cafe latte.
For fans of this decadent and highly potent coffee, grass-fed butter is absolutely essential since it contains optimal levels of healthy fat.
Grass-fed butter is not as common in America as it is in Europe, making it harder to come by in the states. Kerrygold, the Irish brand of grass-fed butter, has been a staple in the high fat diet community as it can be purchased almost anywhere from health food grocers like Whole Foods, to your local neighborhood grocery chain.
