I'm a huge coffee fan. I love it, but I am sensitive to it. I only drink coffee in the morning, and never more than 2 cups. Otherwise I can get over-stimulated.
I usually make a huge tonic elixir in the morning, Not today. I need to re-order! So here's a recipe for a minimal Herbal Bulletproof Coffee. Here's how I do it:
When I get home, or a few hours before I go to bed, I'll take my pot, and light it.
Just kidding, I'll take my pot and add about a tablespoon of chaga dust and a tablespoon of prepared he shou wu chips. Then I'll add 2-3 cups of water.
I like to let it sit for a little before turning the heat on. I think it's important not to immediately put it on high heat. After sitting for 15 minutes or so, I'll turn the heat on.
I bring the water to a boil or there about, and then turn the heat off. Done for the night.
Next morning, I'll wake up and bring the water to a boil. While that's happening, I'll grind beans.
Ground beans go into the French Press. I try to pour the decoction, leaving the plant material in the pot.
I'll have it sit until it's cool enough to drink.
I put a tablespoon of ghee, a tablespoon of coconut oil, a pinch of salt and like half a tablespoon of honey in the blender. Coffee goes in, lid goes on, blending occurs.
And BAM! you're good to go!
