Why Are People Putting Butter in Their Coffee?

Monday, July 14, 2014

mobile coffee shop franchiseWhy are health nuts putting oil and butter into their coffee? Right now, coffee franchise opportunities are everywhere -- and they're getting increasingly creative (and sometimes even a little bizarre), too! From mixing coffee with oil and butter, combining some of people's favorite beverages, and providing coffee on-the-go, people all over the world are changing what it means to enjoy coffee.

According To Some, Oil, Coffee, and Butter Mix

In Australia alone, the coffee industry is worth more than $5 billion. Now, research shows the coffee and health food industries may be coming together. Fans of CrossFit and the Paleo diet are embracing a new, very unique cup of Joe. What's in it? "Eight ounces of hot drip coffee, one teaspoon of grass-fed unsalted butter, and one teaspoon of MCT-rich coconut oil. Then you froth the combination, which does give it a lovely, velvety texture," The Phoenix New Times explains. "However, by mid-cup, you definitely know that you're drinking butter." The concoction allegedly spikes energy, aids digestion, serves as a meal replacement, and avoids any eventual caffeine crash.

Wait For Your Coffee to Come to You

Are you busy working? No problem! Mobile coffee shop franchises, such as mobile coffee vans, are sweeping across Australia, Europe, and the U.S. These convenient franchises bring your morning cup of coffee straight to you, saving you the trip and/or the need of sacrificing your 15-minute break. Mobile coffee shop franchises brew and sell traditional and specialty coffees, such as lattes and espresso. (Although 70% of coffee is traditional arabica, people all over the globe still drink 14 billion cups of espresso per year.)

Want Wine And Coffee? Now You Can Have Both At The Same Time

Perhaps one of the most unique new coffee franchises offers a mixture of coffee and wine in a single beverage. According to a news release, the coffee wine "features a rich flavor of cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate."

Franchises all over the world are offering consumers new and exciting ways to drink coffee. Some are bringing coffee directly to their customers, combining it with butter and natural oils, or even mixing it with red wine.
