We all love coffee. We all love butter (I sure hope you do). If you haven’t tried the two together, now is your chance!
* This event is open to CFMX Members only (2,3x week, or unlimited) *
Saturday’s coffee class will replace Yoga this Saturday morning due to our Yoga instructor having a last minute scheduling conflict.
This Saturday, 3/21 - 8 am we will be hosting a ‘How-to’ class to teach you how to make your very own coffee with BUTTER(gasp)! That’s right, butter in your coffee. You may be thinking those of us that love this combo are crazy but I can assure you, it is much better than you may think. Cream is a universally accepted addition to coffee and grass-fed butter is made from cream, just without the buttermilk. It is rich and delicious and best of all, you can kick the sugar to the curb. This combo is surprisingly sweet and takes the ‘bitterness’ out of coffee.
The healthy fats from butter and MCT oil will slow the absorption of the caffeine (prevent the jitters) and give you a nice steady source of energy for a few hours. Healthy fats are known to help satiate hunger cravings and provide clean fuel for your brain to function optimally, rather than sugar which can cause a spike and crash, leaving you unfocused and your brain in a fog.
Caution: if you don’t like coffee, you might love it after you try it with the right amount of butter and MCT oil (from coconut oil). CrossFit Mechanix is not responsible for any addiction to this brew!
We will provide all the necessary components for you to make the best coffee you've ever had. If you love the coffee and want to make your own, we will have an order form for a ‘starter kit’ to get you started that you can purchase, with no markup on price.
Starter kit will include:
1 - brick of unsalted Kerrygold butter (everyone’s favorite) About $4.50
1 - bottle of Onnit brand MCT oil - https://www.onnit.com/onnit-mct-oil/ $22.95 + S&H
