Espresso Bay’s Bulletproof Coffee

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | March 31, 2018

It’s not farfetched to say this issue was brought to you in part by Espresso Bay’s Bulletproof Coffee, the new addiction of several Northern Express staffers. Based on the concoction made famous by biohacker entrepreneur Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Coffee is said to suppress hunger, improve brain function and focus, and give its imbibers steady, lasting energy without a caffeine crash. Espresso Bay’s version starts with a pour-over made from fresh-ground organic, low-toxin Kalossi beans. That’s blended with organic grass-fed butter and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) coconut oil — both purported to facilitate fat loss and peak performance of brain and bod — into a creamy, frothy, and truly tasty cup o’ joe. While we honestly can’t say whether Bulletproof’s promises are true (or simply us, hoping they are), the fact remains that on the mornings we chug it, we’re totally focused and cranking all day. $5, 202 E. Front St, Traverse City. (231) 715-1856,
