Bulletproof coffee wasn’t something we were expecting to find in a cafe in Geelong! The term ‘Bulletproof’ isn’t a general term talking about good/consistent coffee either, that we were expecting. We’re actually talking about a new brew that’s taken the world by storm.

What’s so different about it? It’s coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil. That’s right Lavish Cafe Geelong puts butter in your coffee if you ask for it. Don’t worry, it doesn’t kill you, and because of the types of fats that go into it there are numerous benefits gained from a healthier heart to a happier outlook on life.

Although we’re quietly passionate about the topic and a big fan of the movement we won’t go on about it any more but you should read more about it here!

So the rest of the cafe… What a find!

    This place is a great substitute for “upgrading” your daily coffe fix, but it’s not “Bullet Proof” as you are suggesting. They simply make a standard (not Bullet proof beans), conventional coffee with butter and coconut or MCT oil. That’s only 50% of the story guys, not the complete version of the truth regarding the “complete benefits” of having this type of beverage. Still, it’s better than most places…nice article!

      All fair comment Serge, it was written with the person that had never heard of a ‘bulletproof’ coffee in mind with a link to the source of truth if they wanted to find out more, but you’re right it’s not using the actual beans so it’s a more the genericized trademark version. At least they aren’t using salted butter like I found at Thrive in Emporium Melbourne – yuk!
