Coffee for the Crazy People

This coffee has become a thing.  I had heard of it, but I didn't see the recipe until Pioneer Woman posted it.  As soon as I saw it, I knew we had to try the crazy concoction.  We're not people who shy away from much when it comes to food/drink.  We'll try almost anything once.

You throw 1 tablespoon of good quality coconut oil (unrefined) into a blender.

Then you add a pat of butter.

Have I lost you yet!?  Haha!

Pour in 12 ounces of strong, very hot, brewed coffee.

And then blend until it's frothy and beautiful, and emulsified.

Then enjoy the creamy, slightly "coconuty" coffee.  It's not oily at all.

Christopher and I thought that it was good, but not as deserving of the rave reviews it's been getting.  It was similar to coffee with a couple creamers, but it had the slight coconut taste.  Although, we are well aware of the incredible health benefits of coconut oil, so if we want to incorporate more into our diet, this might be a good way to do so.

Also, we've heard of restaurants serving coffee with a pat of butter instead of cream.  Hmmmm, maybe we'll have to try that next.

So, would you try this crazy coffee?  Have you tried it already?

(I really want to try kopi luwak, and I will as soon as I can find it; Christopher thinks I'm crazy)

Hmmm, it seems like something that I would like but I don't know if I'd like enough to go to the extra effort of making it... But I am curious about what it tastes like!
