You may have heard about "butter coffee" or the term "bulletproof coffee". Both of these names are a little problematic for me in describing what is, quite simply, a fat-rich coffee. "Butter coffee" is usually much more than just butter and coffee, and "Bulletproof Coffee" is a trademark, not a generic term.
So I propose a new formal name for our fatty coffee, and one with a taste of Java: Kopi Lemak.
It's Indonesian/Javanese and it means, literally, fatty coffee.
Kopi Lemak is an excellent food choice for people on Ketogenic or High Fat-Low Carb diets.
One cup contains over 600 calories of high quality fat, or nearly a third of the average person's daily calorie requirement.
It is important to note that Kopi Lemak does not contain any added sugar whatsoever. And to add any sugar at all would completely defeat the purpose of this food drink.
So what I am showing you now is my own recipe for making Kopi Lemak.
The ingredients for one cup are:
a cup of hot, strong, brewed Coffee
1 spoon of Butter or Ghee
1-3 spoons of Coconut Oil and/or xMCT Oil
and optionally, 3 spoons of Cream
For the coffee I like to use a Java Arabica. Brew in a french press and let stand for 3 minutes or so.
For the butter, always choose the best quality available. Here in Jakarta I usually use Anchor. Any Australian or New Zealand butter will be fine.
Alternatively, you can substitute the butter for ghee, which is purified milk fat, without the residual protein and milk sugars found in butter.
Next is one of the most important ingredients for this drink, coconut oil.
Now many people use virgin coconut oil, called VCO, in the mistaken belief that it is "pure". This is not necessarily the case. I prefer to use standard refined coconut oil (technically referred to as RBD, or cooking coconut oil). RBD does not have a strong coconut flavour at all, and is excellent for frying and cooking generally.
It is also much cleaner than VCO, without the off-flavours produced from the residual proteins and detritus.
In order to get maximum cognitive benefit from Kopi Lemak, you should add MCT oil. MCT oil is simply coconut oil with one of the heavier fats removed. MCT is metabolised very quickly by the liver into energy, and the brain and muscles love it.
You can replace the coconut oil either wholly or partially with MCT oil. But it's best to start out slowly with MCT until your gut adjusts. I suggest starting with one spoon MCT and 2 spoons coconut oil.
The last ingredient is optional: Cream. Cream does contain a little bit of protein and milk sugar, so you should not overdo this.
Place all the ingredients into a blender. Make sure the coffee is as hot as possible, or the butter or ghee will not melt and the coconut oil will not properly emulsify.
Blend for about 30-40 seconds.
