Tested for Toxins

Toxins don’t belong in your coffee. That’s why we opt into additional testing for toxins on every batch of our sustainably sourced green coffee beans.

Never jittery. Just great taste and focused energy from this coffee. I don't drink anything else if I have a choice.

I am extra pleased to see this brand of Arabica coffee is so smooth and sweet, and best yet, is harvested with sustainable methods, partnered with Rainforest Alliance.

How to make Bulletproof Coffee


You might have heard that light roast and dark roast beans have different levels of caffeine. This isn’t quite true.

The size of a coffee bean changes the longer it’s roasted. Light roast beans are smaller and denser than dark roast beans. If you measure your light roast coffee with a scoop or tablespoon, you might end up with more coffee per scoop — and therefore (slightly) more caffeine. If you want to keep your caffeine consistent across different roasts, measure your beans by weight instead of volume.

Store your beans in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature.

As a coffee term, acidity refers to bright, tangy, fruity or wine-like flavors in coffee beans. It has nothing to do with the amount of acid, or pH.

Coffee contains five major naturally occurring acids. The average cup of black coffee has a pH of about 5, making it mildly acidic. If you’re sensitive to acid or looking for low-acid coffee, try darker roasts or decaf.

Absolutely. If you want to use Bulletproof coffee beans to make espresso, we recommend our medium-dark roast, The Mentalist — but it’s up to personal preference.

We recommend using a method that preserves the coffee’s natural oils. These contribute to the flavor and antioxidant profile of your brew.[8] Try a French press with glass and steel components.

Direct trade means we buy our coffee directly from growers, without going through middlemen. This allows us to build relationships directly with our farmers.

Ground coffee can lose its freshness faster than whole bean coffee because there’s more surface area exposed to air after grinding. Store your ground coffee in an airtight container to get the most flavor out of your brew.

For the freshest and most flavorful cup of coffee, buy your beans whole and grind them right before you brew them. This step maintains the fragrance and complexities of the coffee bean flavor.

There isn’t a significant caffeine difference in any of the Bulletproof roasts (besides decaf, obviously). However, the way you prepare your coffee can influence caffeine levels. In general, you’ll get more caffeine out of an espresso shot than a cup of coffee from a drip machine.

If you want the strongest coffee in terms of flavor, try darker roasts. These coffee beans have more robust flavor profiles that naturally develop from their longer roasting process. French Kick is a smooth and sweet dark roast with smoky chocolate notes. The Mentalist is a medium-dark roast with dark cocoa and vanilla aromatics, cherry sweetness and notes of almond and caramel. Try them in whole bean, ground or single-serve pods.

Yes. All Bulletproof coffee beans take well to butter but stand just as well on their own. Check out this blog post for other coffee add-ins to enhance your morning brew.

You can use your preferred coffee beans, but your results may vary. At Bulletproof, we carefully control and test our coffee beans for mold toxins. This reduces your exposure to the mold toxins that can be found in lower-quality, mass-market coffee beans.

We’re proud of our attention to detail. But there’s no guarantee that other companies have the same standards that we do. The official Bulletproof Coffee recipe uses Bulletproof coffee beans because they’re certified clean and tested for toxins. That means peace of mind, plus delicious and flavorful coffee beans you can feel good about drinking every day.

It depends on how much you use. However, if you were to use the standard 2 ½ heaping tablespoons of coffee per cup, a 12-ounce bag would make roughly 18 cups of coffee.

For maximum flavor, use an opened bag of coffee within 3 to 4 weeks. Bulletproof coffee beans are best enjoyed within two weeks of receipt. To preserve freshness for as long as possible, store your coffee beans in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature.

Bulletproof Coffee is not vacuum sealed. We package it in multi-layer foil bags that contain a one-way valve that allows the freshly roasted coffee to de-gas while minimizing oxidative degradation. Our coffee is bagged directly after it is roasted to maximize its freshness. This is not a standard practice for commercially available coffee and will cause inflation on occasion, but this does not affect the quality of the coffee whatsoever.
