    Does anybody use this? There's a fair bit of hype around it, and I'm inclined to feel it's just a marketing ploy, but hey.. figured I'd throw it out to the forums and see if anybody finds it positively effective!

    Yes. It's good and it does give me great energy first thing in the morning. I usually pour it over a bowl of nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews) with a few dark chocolate chips and a sprinkle of dried cranberries.

    Cool, good to know... do you do the whole Grassfed butter thing as well? What's the process for 'making' it? Do you just buy the coffee beans from them and then make it as regular?

    I only do grassfed butter. I don't eat mass produced "commercial butter". I don't use any special beans. I don't use any special coconut oil extract. I keep it simple and real.

    Folks who ever get to watch me eat "first breakfast" generally comment that I'm "hardcore".

    I've polished off raw eggs right out of the shell on camera for the Hangout Hags.

    This is some marketing bullshit. As a coffee professional, I read what's on that website and just roll my eyes. Any good coffee--ie, not Starbucks, not Folgers, but something from a solid micro roaster--has the benefits being touted here. Basically, what I'm saying is that this coffee isn't anything different from a coffee that you'd be able to get at your local specialty coffee shop, and your local specialty coffee shop also has the added benefit of changing the coffee with the season to give you different tastes and find something you'll love. This stuff is only as "effective" as any other specialty coffee, I guarantee you. Just do yourself a favor and buy something from a local shop that can help you find a coffee you'll love.

    Yeah but Illy is terrible so...

    It's actually not any more expensive than a coffee from a specialty roaster.

    I just use the Costco "San Francisco Blend" that we get here and it tastes just fine for my early morning jolt.

    Now later in the day? I have to have "Blue Bottle" or some other specialty pour over. I sip that black. Usually with some ice cream or cheesecake.

    Why is Illy terrible? You're talking about the taste of it or something else?
