Bulletproof coffee at home

Hi folks!
My family likes bulletproof coffee, so I decided to look for a bulletproof coffee recipe, it's quite interesting to try to do it myself. I'm just wondering if I can make it tastier then cafe's one. I found this recipe, is there anyone who tried to make bulletproof coffee themselves? Share your recipes!
One more question, what blender do you use? I think about purchasing one

My brother’s wife sells CBD products and he’s been trying to get me to add some CBD oil in my French press when brewing coffee every morning. Haven’t tried it yet...

Are you satisfied with it? What is the price of your blender?

Hmm... I read about CBD, sounds interesting. I had been confusing THC and CBD, but know it's ok.

It hasn't been tested much yet, so I wouldn't say it's "ok." Many people have suffered side effects. We just don't know yet how safe it is, at what dose, for which conditions, or which people.

I wish you well.

There are many intelligent conversations about roasting and brewing very good coffee.

Yes, I enjoy my coffee, I use coconut oil and heavy whipping cream. My blender is a Ninja Bullet and I have no idea of what I paid, it's 10 years old by now.

This sounds interesting. We are looking into it.

We tried it today. I like it. It made Stirling queasy. I guess next time, I'll put less butter and coconut oil in his. I had read that you should start with less fat and work your way up. I put about 1 tblsp of unsalted butter and half a tblsp of coconut oil in a large cup of coffee and we shared it.

That was delicious, but more exciting than I had expected. I read some comments on a site that talked about the bulletproof coffee. One person wrote that she had used a Magic Bullet. She said that she later noticed that the instructions for the Magic Bullet said not to use it for hot liquids (I haven't verified that.) She claimed to have gotten second degree burns. Someone else wrote that they had gotten burnt that way too. That it was better to do it in a blender that isn't sealed shut.

So, I decided to do it in the blender attachment of my Magic Bullet. It leaked, even before I turned it on. I had to empty it into another container. I used a 2 litre Pyrex measuring bowl. I used my immersion blender. That worked fine.

I use a cold brew coffee maker and add simple syrup to my taste after it's done brewing, then add cream on serving. The coffee maker I use lasts for several weeks. It usually lasts for about 10 days the way I use it.
