For those of you on the primal or paleo diet you know that coffee is one of those things that can be highly debated. Some paleo nerds have no problem with it because it contains some nutrients, others oppose it because the stimulant part of the caffeine can screw up your cortisol levels. Coffee is a constant topic of discussion on Robb Wolf’s podcast and Mark’s Daily Apple has written some good stuff about it as well. I would suggest listening/reading either of those just to understand both sides of the argument.

Anyway, for those of you who are “pro” coffee, I have come across what appears to be the most amazing coffee ever. It’s super clean and because of that it won’t give you headaches, jitters, anxiety, or energy crashes. I have read very positive reviews on some very well-known paleo blogs such as Primal Palate. I have yet to try it myself, but I plan on it in the near future. It’s a little on the pricey side but from what I hear, it’s totally worth it.

Cup of Coffee


The paleo community has also adopted a specific recipe to brewing the coffee.  Anything involving butter always sounds delicious to me. 🙂


  • Start with 500 ml (2 mugs) of black coffee brewed with mold-free beans (important)
  • Add 2 Tbs (or more, I prefer 80 grams, about 2/3 of a standard stick of butter) of Kerry Gold or other UNSALTED grass-fed butter
  • Add 30 grams of MCT oil for max energy, weight loss and brain function (optional if you have none)
  • Blend with a pre-heated hand blender, Magic Bullet, or (best) counter top blender until there is a creamy head of foam
