The idea of having your vitamins and coffee at the same time is not new to the coffee industry. Companies such as Bulletproof coffee and VitaCup have helped usher in a whole new era of “healthy coffee” or “enhanced coffee”. Whether you're looking to improve your mental clarity or lose weight, there are a whole selection of products out there that fit the bill. However, this particular article is going to focus on coffees that contain MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) or MCT Coffee. This type of coffee is also known as keto coffee, butter coffee, fatty coffee, etc.
What exactly is MCT?
MCT's are a type of fat found in certain oils such as coconut oil, palm kernel oil, milk, and butter. MCT oil is made by extracting such fats and is most commonly sought among individuals looking to lose weight or maintain higher levels of energy especially during workouts.
The simple principle behind it is that it gives you an extra energy boost beyond just the caffeine. MCT's are unique in that they don't require digestive enzymes or bile acids to be absorbed or digested. This makes MCT's one of the fastest absorbed fats available which means you won't have to wait long to feel its effects. Additionally, the presence of MCT's will leave you feeling fuller longer.
Recommended Coffee's with MCT
If you're looking for an excellent medium roast coffee with MCT, then we'd recommend VitaCup's Genius Blend. VitaCup has a company is known for producing some of the best-tasting “healthy coffee” on the market and they offer their MCT in a convenient coffee pod / K-cup form. In addition to containing MCT as one of the primary ingredients, VitaCup's Genius blend also includes the following:
- Cinnamon Antioxidants support heart health.
- Turmeric Naturally beneficial and mood boosting antioxidant.

As you may have concluded from reading the list above, this MCT coffee offers a wealth of health benefits beyond just losing weight. As coffee lovers first, perhaps the biggest appeal of this blend is that it still stays true to the deep and rich flavor of gourmet coffee. We've certainly had our share of healthy coffee and only the ones that taste great are those that make the mark regardless of the health benefits they confer. Upon tasting VitaCup for the first time, one of our reviewers thought to himself while being taken aback by the savory flavor, “Are there really vitamins in this?”
If you're not a K Cup or Coffee pod type coffee drinker, then consider the highly popular Bulletproof coffee. MCT is an active ingredient used in Bulletproof Coffee recipes and confers similar weight-loss and hunger-suppression benefits.
