Contrary to what you may have heard, putting butter in coffee (or tea) is nothing new. If you’ve been to Tibet or Nepal, or Ethiopia at some point in the last 1,000 years, you'd recognize that adding a high-quality fat to a hot drink such as tea or coffee has been around a long time. And for good reason:
- Butter is rich in Vitamins A, D, E and Vitamin K
- Butter from cows which are fed grass is higher in Conjugated Linoleic Acid and Omega-3s than that from grain-fed cows' milk
- Grass-fed cow's milk has a nearly-perfect Omega-3-to-Omega-6 fatty acid ratio
- Oh, and it tastes great - like the richest, creamiest, most indulgent latte you've ever had.
