FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ Butter in coffee sounds weird. Does it taste good?
Does it taste good? In a word ... YES! It’s super yummy. Butter is made from cream, you know…and cream in coffee is totally acceptable, right? Plus, we’ve added other special goodies like coconut oil, raw cacao butter, organic honey, vanilla and cinnamon so your coffee will be creamy, satisfying and delish!
+ I’m on a diet. Won’t adding butter and oil to my coffee make me gain weight?
Starting the day with a steaming cup of ButterBuzz basically revs your metabolism and switches your body in to fat burning mode…and that’s not the only benefit! The grass-fed butter is a great source of fatty acid called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which has been shown to actually lower body fat percentage, but the coconut oil has a plethora of healthy medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCTs) that boost metabolism for immediate energy. The MCTs in coconut oil don’t end up as stored body fat like longer chain fatty acids sometimes can. ButterBuzz is a the perfect delicious addition for many diets especially paleo, gluten-free, 21-day sugar free plan or low carb plans.
+ Will ButterBuzz be too heavy for my sensitive stomach?
Everyone is different…so if you are concerned about how your stomach will react to ButterBuzz, start with ¼ or ½ of a BuzzPod to allow your body to acclimate to the combination of ingredients.
+ What is the science behind the benefits?

+ Do I need to buy special coffee?
YES! If you want to be healthy, socially conscious and you want your coffee to be ridiculously delicious, it’s important that you mix your ButterBuzz with a Fair Trade, Organic and (I prefer) dark roast coffee. My favorite K-cup is made by Marley Coffee (www.marleycoffee.com) – a company founded by Bob Marley’s son. The name of the blend is “Lively Up!” and it truly lives up to its name. Try some…I don’t work for the company, I just adore their coffee.
+ I like my coffee steaming hot. Will adding ButterBuzz cool it down?
It all depends on the way you prepare your coffee! If you use a single cup machine (like a Keurig) you can set the temperature of the water to be extra hot. If you’re using a standard coffee maker with no way to get the extra heat – you may find that the BuzzPod cools your coffee somewhat. Not to worry! Just place your unwrapped BuzzPodd (s) in your blender the night before and cover with the lid. (The ingredients in ButterBuzz don’t go bad at room temperature – they just get soft and more difficult to handle without using spoons and napkins, etc.). Then in the morning, brew your coffee add to blender and enjoy your delicious, piping hot ButterBuzz!
+ Will I get the same health benefits if I drink decaf?
The health benefits of ButterBuzz are totally the same if used in decaf – you’ll just be missing the caffeine high. Try tossing a BuzzPod in your tea! Matcha, Chai or even Earl Grey…serious yum!
+ Where should I store my ButterBuzz?
ButterBuzz can be stored in either the fridge or freezer. It’s up to you! It will last for 3 weeks in the fridge and 3 months in the freezer (although it never lasts that long…it’s so delish it’s usually gone in a week!)
