Upgraded Decaf Coffee is a health, pleasure, and bio-hacking beverage brewed from the same artisan-roasted, high performance Central American coffee beans as our caffeinated Bulletproof Coffee. Each happy cup of Bulletproof Decaf delivers huge flavor depth, the lowest possible toxin content, and extreme mental and health benefits, just like caffeinated Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee.
Some scientific benefits of decaf: Decaf boosts memory and brain energy metabolism. Decaf coffee helps the brain efficiently use glucose, which helps improve memory function. A typical serving of decaf contains more antioxidants than a typical serving of fresh fruit. It also may help slow age-associated cognitive decline.
Our Upgraded Arabica beans are first cleaned and pre-soaked in pure water to hydrate the beans. From this, we create Green Coffee Extract (GCE), minus the caffeine, through simple water extraction. Our green Upgraded Coffee beans are then placed in the GCE, which is saturated with all the desirable coffee molecules.
We carefully monitor time, chemical equilibrium, temperature, and flow, and optimize the high-pressure caffeine specific driving force between the bean and the GCE. The result is a net extractive process in which only caffeine is removed by osmosis, leaving the coffee’s unique "origin flavor" characteristics intact. This process is repeated for 8 – 10 hours, until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine free.
After our Upgraded Coffee beans are decaffeinated, they are removed from the holding tanks, dried, bagged, and ready to be roasted. California Proposition 65 WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Why is this warning here?
Our coffee is carefully produced and lab tested using the Bulletproof Process™ to target the lowest toxin content vs. normal coffee, so you get all the benefits of coffee without the negative health effects. The reason you crash or get jittery after most coffee is not the coffee itself; it’s several classes of toxins that form on most coffee as it is processed. According to a study with 54 participants, Upgraded Coffee provides a strong cognitive boost vs. normal coffee, and thousands of people attest to the difference in clarity it provides.
Upgraded beans are harvested in Central America from passive organic estates without chemicals (herbicides, pesticides, etc.). Each bean is hand-picked by experienced coffee harvesters – skilled people who only pick perfectly ripe berries. Most modern coffee producers pick unripe and damaged beans alongside the ripe ones, which impacts how the coffee makes you feel.
After we pick the ripest cherries, we use the Bulletproof Process to create a special class of green coffee bean without the harmful molds, bacteria, and toxins that are a huge problem in modern coffee agriculture. The beans are then medium roasted in small batches in United States under the strictest conditions, which minimize the formation of toxins from the roasting process. Roasting the beans enhances their antioxidant capacity and flavor to provide you with a healthier, tastier cup of coffee.
Coffee Is Better With (Grass-Fed) Butter
We’re serious. Bulletproof Coffee is the ultimate drink for power brokers and schoolteachers alike.
Take 2 cups of Upgraded Coffee, 2 tbs. of unsalted grass-fed butter, and 2 tbs of Upgraded MCT Oil, and blend it together with a good blender until a creamy head of foam forms. Pour and enjoy this healthful, frothy, and delicious cup of Bulletproof Coffee.
This drink is becoming wildly popular for several reasons:
- It makes you feel energized, alert, and focused all day without the crash of energy drinks.
- It can melt body fat and increase muscle mass.
- It’s made with high quality unsalted grass-fed butter, so it tastes great and provides important fatty acids like CLA.
Ordinary Decaf vs. Upgraded Decaf
Supermarket decaf coffees, as well as many boutique decafs, are routinely made from less desirable Robusta beans which contain high levels of natural bitter compounds, which are unfortunately linked with increased cholesterol. These low-grade beans are moistened during the normal decaffeination process and may then remain unroasted for months, giving molds the opportunity to form mycotoxins that contaminate decaf coffee. Another problem is the frequent use of toxic chemicals in the normal decaffeination process.
Bulletproof Upgraded Decaf Coffee is made of high-end Arabica beans and processed with Swiss Water process. Then these premium decaffeinated beans are roasted as quickly as possible in order to minimize any contamination.
Coffee is the number one source of antioxidants for Americans (except Bulletproof Dieters). Decaf coffee is rich in antioxidant molecules, especially when they're roasted properly. We carefully control our roasting process to maximize antioxidant content as well as minimize any mycotoxin contamination. Upgraded Decaf Coffee delivers a bottomless cup of benefits.
