What is Keto Coffee?
Keto coffee is simple. It starts out with high quality coffee beans, grass-fed organic butter, and MCT oil. Blend it together and you have the best energy elixir for keto.
How to Make Keto Coffee
- Brew 8-12 ounces of your favorite coffee.
- Add up to 2 tablespoon MCT oil.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter.
- Mix it all in a blender until frothy.
It’s that simple! Here are some tips for keto coffee newbies.
Start slowly. It will take time for your body to adjust to MCT oil. I suggest starting with 1/2 a teaspoon and increase the amount every other day until you reach 1 table spoon. Some say it impacts their digestion. Take it as slow as you need to because the cognitive benefits are worth it.
The same goes for the using butter in your coffee. Sure you’re used to eating butter, but not in your coffee on an empty stomach. My suggestion is to begin with a 1/4 teaspoon of each, butter and MCT oil. Ramp up slowly and observe how your body reacts.
Over time you can reach the optimal levels of one tablespoon MCT and one tablespoon butter. Be patient and enjoy the process of incorporating new healthy habits into your daily routine.
One more thing, you’ll want to avoid paper filters to make your coffee because the filters extract the natural oils of the coffee that are necessary for optimal results.

Why Does Keto Coffee Work?
Butter, coffee and MCT have a great deal of health benefits and research has proven it.
Caffeine boosts energy and brain function
Coffee is an amazing antioxidant. It helps the body fight against chronic diseases and keeps the brain functioning at optimal levels. Nutrients are also delivered in your daily cup of java. Nutrients like B vitamins, magnesium, and potassium.
Stronger Cognition: Brain activity is strengthened with bioflavinoids in coffee. With bioflavinoids, your brain cells communicate more efficiently and memory is strengthened. Coffee also protects the brain as you age.
Mental Wellness: Caffeine has also been shown to improve mood and alertness. A couple of cups of coffee is all it takes.
Improved Performance and Less Fat: Caffeine in your coffee can make workouts seem easier to get through. It’s also been show to increase metabolism and burn more fat.
However, if you want to maximize these benefits, you have to be drinking the right type of coffee.
Think of the quality of coffee as you do nutrition. The better the quality, the better it is for you. High quality coffee beans give what’s needed to really thrive. Cheap coffee won’t help you, but it has the potential to stifle your ketosis efforts.
Since the understanding of buying quality coffee is new to so many people I decided to gather a list of keto friendly coffee to help decrease the search time for you.
The coffees listed below are just some high quality beans with a smooth bold flavor. Feel free to try them out and let me know what you think.
Grass-fed Butter Fuels You
Be sure to use grass-fed butter. This is very important with keto coffee. The healthier the cow, the healthier the butter!
Grass fed-butter is higher in essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, and vitamins A, D,E, and K. It also contains CLA – excellent for its weight loss benefits.
Grass-fed butter also causes less inflammation because it’s good for your digestions. High in butyrate, a short chain fatty acid. My point here is don’t skimp on the butter.
This healthy fat will sustain your energy for hours, balance your hormones, and boost your brain power. The best part is, it will make the creamiest cup of coffee you’ve ever had! Healthy fat will sustain your energy for hours, balance hormones, and boost cognitive function. With butter, you’re not only getting essential fatty acids and other nutrients, it helps make the creamiest cup of coffee you’ll ever have.
MCT Oil is Clean Burning Fuel
MCT oil will not cause you to crash after a great cup of keto coffee. This is because it increases the rate of fat burning by helping your body produce ketones which also fuel your brain. MCT oil is an essential ingredient in your keto coffee for a few reasons.
Medium-chain triglycerides in MCT oil are where the magic happens. It may include a combination of certain types of triglycerides: C8, C10, and C12. All have featured benefits. But the one most powerful for weight loss is C8. For your initial weight loss efforts you should focus on C8. It’s the energy booster. Where C10 and C12 have antimicrobial properties that are center stage to their benefits.
MCT oil suppresses hunger, It decreases the levels o the hunger hormone, grhelin. It also increase the levels of CCK so you will feel satiated and experience the benefit of sustained, high levels of energy throughout your morning.
Brain fog will also disappear. It only takes a few minutes for your body to process MCT oil, so the cognative function will improve in a short period of time.
It’s tasteless and blends without even noticing a change in the taste of your coffee. If you find your MCT oil has a distinct taste, tray another brand. A high quality MCT does not have a taste or a smell.
MCT oil is extracted from coconut oil. There are MCT’s in coconut oil, but not as concentrated. Some people want to add coconut oil to their coffee. That’s healthy too, but it won’t give you the brain boosting benefits of the keto coffee recipe above if you leave out the brain fuel.
It also affects your level of physical performance. If you go to the gym the combination of caffeine and medium-chain triglycerides will make your workout seem easier. It also benefit your libido. 🙂
All of these reasons is why keto coffee helps you lose weight. When you learn how to use keto coffee as a daily ritual, you will maintain your weight effortlessly.
