Where did butter coffee come from?
Sherpas in Nepal and Kashmirs in northern India have been enjoying similar stuff for years. Gurage people of Ethiopia enjoy their brew with butter, honey and salt while in Vietnam, chon coffee beans are sautéed with butter, salt and sugar, then lightly roasted. But one of the most studied Ayurvedic tradition is Tibetan butter tea, called po cha which is made by churning fermented black tea with salty yak butter.
Every tea serving a different purpose such as improving mental alertness and cognitive capacity, sodium balancing the diuretic effects of the tea, while yak butter contains about 2.5% CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which has been know have anti-carcinogenic properties and may help reduce hunger, decrease body fat mass and increase lean body mass in some people. In fact, it's so good for you, it's the only exception to our dairy-free program.

The 3 most FAQs
Can I use regular butter instead of grass-fed?
Nope! The CLA (the NATURAL and GOOD trans fat that increases fat burning, stimulate fat breakdown and inhibit fat production) content is 300–500% higher in beef and dairy from grass-fed cows than grain-fed cows.
Can I skip the butter?
Absolutely. We don't always use GFB (dairy) so we love to substitute with coconut butter! Plus we love the added flavour it adds to this magical morning beverage!
Can I add sugar?
NO! This will offset your ability to lose fat. Your body will no longer use your fat for fuel. Sugar in not allowed.
