This week, I wanted to take a look at a non-technical topic, and talk about something that I found really helpful for me, Butter Coffee, aka Bulletproof Coffee. I know everyone’s first reaction is that it sounds disgusting but it tastes really good, and I can get some serious focus while consuming this mind friendly beverage. I have been drinking this for almost 2 years now and still look forward to it.
I first heard about this on the Joe Rogan podcast, from a guy named Dave Asprey. It was a very interesting episode and got me intrigued. I started drinking and immediately noticed this level of focus I wasn’t able to get before. Albeit, the focus may all be mental, but I can tell that the caffeine effects is definitely smoothed out over a long period of time, which is perfect when you are coding.
I have also told many of my coworkers to give it a shot. Normally, they like it, but don’t like the idea of making it every morning. It is a little bit of a chore, but really doesn’t take that long as long as you have everything ready. I use the products from the Bulletproof website, but I have seen lots of different versions that are normally cheaper, and I am starting to see “Paleo” coffee in a few places too.
This is very trendy now, so I’m sure most of you reading this have heard of it. If, however, anyone hasn’t heard of this before, and tried it after reading this, please post a comment. I’d be happy to hear.
