I am sure by now many of you have heard of the buttered coffee trend. Backed by countless studies, science is now saying that a healthy dose of fats first thing in the morning can actually help you lose fat. In addition there are studies that have shown that buttered coffee can help you stay alert and think more clearly first thing in the morning. Who would have thought that a morning dose of fat could help your body burn fat.
The Paleo and low carb crowd has known this for quite some time, and the USDA has recently started to reverse their opinion on the role of saturated fat on cardiovascular health. Newsflash, fats aren’t making us fat.
Even if your motivation isn’t losing weight, buttered coffee is a delicious drink with roots that stem as far away as Tibetan mountain sides. It was only a matter of time before someone took the guesswork out of the recipe. What used to be a sloppy mess of measuring butter, coconut oil, the occasional spices, and brewed coffee into my blender in the morning has now become a treat with a simple product from coffee blocks. Gone are the mornings of me rushing to put together this drink before I have to take my daughter to school, and here are the days of absolute simplicity when it comes to my morning ritual.
I have been drinking buttered coffee for quite some time and personally have found many benefits from it. When I drink it first thing in the morning I tend to have extended energy and I’m not hungry until much later on in the day. I feel invigorated without any type of jitters typically associated with large amounts of coffee as the fat also slow the absorption of caffeine into my bloodstream. I’m not a huge fan of creamer in my coffee, but you would be surprised how creamy and delicious coffee blocks are without the artificial tastes many times associated with mixed or blended coffee drinks.
The process is simple, you drop your frozen coffee block into your mug, add hot water, and blend together. My order came with an automatic frother which made the process go smoothly and created the perfect cup. Coffee blocks contain the perfect combination of coffee and organic ingredients, with the convenience you crave first thing in the morning.
Coffee blocks contain Unsalted Butter from Grass Fed Cows, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Egg Yolks from Free Range Chickens, Organic Vanilla, and Organic Fair Trade Columbian Coffee. It might sound a little different then your normal order from your drive-through coffee shop, but don’t knock it till you try it. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain with this drink. Instead of spending a great deal of money snagging all these ingredients from separate places, why not give it a shot in this unique shot form.
This drink has been a pre-workout drink for me for many years, and if you don’t believe it works, I would love to challenge you to a contest of who can do the most 32 kg kettle bell swings!

I received a sample pack of coffee blocks for purpose of review, but all opinions are my own.
