No Milk? No Creamer? No Problem




If you can't drink coffee without creamer but have no liquid dairy products in the house, there is a solution!

Step 1: Prepare Coffee Using Preferred Method.

I use a French press. Ooh la la.

Step 2: Add About 1 Tsp Butter

More or less according to taste...probably best to start with 'less.'

Step 3: Stir and Enjoy

It's not the healthiest alternative, but the fat in the butter does the same job as the fat in milk or creamer.

    I would assume this would also make it salty too if you use salted butter like most people have in their home right?

    Actually, the salt in the butter won't be noticeable. In fact, it is recommended to put a lite dash of salt in your coffee if it tastes too strong or bitter. And, it WORKS! If you do it and it still tastes a bit bitter/strong, then just add a little more salt. But, be careful and not use too much or the coffee will then taste salty.

    I use salt all the time for bitter/strong restaurant coffee since their coffee maker supplier companies always give them instructions to use twice as much coffee grounds per pot than they need to. The sneaky companies tell them they must use ONLY the companies' brand of coffee (since a lot of restaurants actually lease their coffee makers). So, the companies have the scheme of telling them to use more grounds because they want them to use more grounds so they have to order more coffee more often from them. I know this because, I used to work in restaurants and make the coffee. (I was told this from a coffee supplier agent who confided this to me.)

    When I had to make the restaurant coffee, I hated how strong the coffee turned out, so I experimented and started putting less grounds in the machine. By the time I found the right amount of grounds to use, I had discovered that the amount of grounds the companies tell you to use is actually almost twice as much as the amount I found I could use and still make rich, smooth non-bitter coffee.

    Cool idea! I love my latte in the mornings. I will try this next time I am out of creamer.
