New Fat-Burning Coffee Menu

In Coffee We Trust

People like asking about my coffee habits. When I was about 12 years old, I got my first taste of butter mixed with coffee — a family ordeal of junk-food buttered rolls dipped in morning brew. Later, after giving up junk food, the butter-coffee combo remained in my brain. I would ultimately use crème de crème — the top of the cream from raw Jersey-cow milk — what I call “very heavy” cream, and, when not available, organic butter. The fat-burning coffee menu rises with me in the morning.

The best coffee starts with organic beans ground fine. I make a strong espresso brew made with a French press, an Italian percolator, or sometimes, as shown in my video, a German expresso maker. It’s the best cappuccino imaginable — beyond bullet-proof — it’s breakfast. I usually prepare the Full Fat-Burner, the not-so-secret recipe for slimming and a better brain. Read my article on the science of fat-burning coffee.

    Love the coffee! I was debating if I should say something or not about your lovely cup. I recently started learning about lead in dishware and decided to stop using my special cup from my grandma. The problems caused by lead (early Alzheimer’s and kidney problems) just don’t seem worth it. You might want to look into it a little at

    Hi there,

    I have found that using ghee butter instead of coconut oil seems to be a little easier on my digestive system. Is there a downside to using ghee butter over coconut oil? Is there a specific nutritional reason you prefer to use coconut oil over ghee (or unsalted) butter?

    Thank you!

    How in the hell does adding fat (heavy cream & butter) help you burn fat?

    • Hi Darren,

      There’s a lot to this but the simple answer is that eating fat in the absence of sugar helps the body feel full via a hormone called leptin (which increases fat-burning) and reduces the activity of insulin (which itself reduces leptin in the body and increases sugar-burning). So more leptin means less insulin means more fat-burning.

    Here’s what I do with my eggs:

    I place a dozen or so in a pot and cover with cold water and a lid, and put on the stove (high heat) for about 5 minutes. Then pour off the hot and replace with cold water for about 5 minutes so they don’t cook, then keep them in the refrigerator. I use them this way for the coffee recipe and for smoothies.

    • G says:

      Hi Dr. Phil,
      Cooking the egg – or what looks like more of a heat exposure than full cooking – Does this change the chemistry of the protein for better absorption?
      The egg in your video looks more raw than cooked is why I use the term ‘heat exposure’. In short, why cook the egg?

      How does this coffee beverage help lose weight? Is it Keto?

      Thank you!

  • Kev says:

    Can you tell me how long you cook the egg for?

  • Pawl says:

    Thanks, Phil! Curious about the lightly soft-boiled egg, since the video didn’t describe this in any detail.

  • Chantal says:

    This video is so cool, thanks so much. What do you mean by “very soft boiled” egg ? a minute of boiling ?

    Hello! I have been turning to Dr. Phil’s Bulletproof coffee (the Double Fat-Burner above) during finals week when I have to write a lot the last couple of years whole finishing up a second Bachelor’s degree. I know how to add a whopping tbsp of butter, I know how to add a tbsp of coconut oil (and man does this stuff work), but could you please tell me how to prepare the Full Fat-Burner coffee with the whole egg mentioned above? A quick step-by-step on how to prepare that for a coffee newb like me would be greatly appreciated. (I know this is blasphemy, but I have been using…wait for it…instant coffee to prepare mine. Please don’t excommunicate me!)

  • Mike says:

    I love the full fat burner coffee, but my cholesterol is high and my doctor wants me to get it down – with medication if necessary. I would appreciate any thoughts you have about a high fat diet (including coffee with heavy cream, coconut oil, and whole egg) and high cholesterol. Last 2 readings were: overall-239, ldl-135, hdl-94, tri-48 and overall-215, ldl-115, hdl-86, tri-48.

    • Chrestina says:

      You need to read up on cholesterol in Cholesterol Clarity. Nothing wrong with your numbers that warrant meds.

  • Jake Olson says:

    Phil I love this, I’ve been doing something very similar. I haven’t tried with the egg, but have been putting 1 T collagen with Cream, coconut oil, cocoa butter and espresso.

    Do you do this as a meal replacement in the morning? I find that I don’t get hungry til noon if I’ve had this in the morning.

  • G1 says:

    What is the minimum recommended time to soft boil the egg? Would it be ok to microwave the egg, and what is the minimum time?

  • Reid Shaffer says:

    I don’t drink coffee because I find it messes with my digestive system. However, I find that all of these recipes (except for the cacao one) work just as well for tea. I recommend a strong breakfast tea, English or Irish, brewed at around 3 grams of loose leaf per 6 oz of water. This gives it a strong enough flavor to stand up to all of the fats that are being added.
