    Anyone else try this? Is it any good?

    They just handed me a cup of coffee with some ghee in it and I slowly poured it into our Robot Coupe (really expensive NSF food processor); as If I were emulsifying a dressing.

    Coconut oil got mentioned too. I'm not sure if that's what it was or if it was strictly clarified butter.

    Yes I sanitized the Robot Coupe workbowl and blade afterwards.

    That's odd. But you will never see me add anything to my coffee :D

    In Tibet they take their tea with salt and yak butter all emulsified into an unusual concoction. Due to the high altitude, the salt helps them to retain water and maintain hydration. Also, their diet is very low in fat, so they need to add it where they can.
     
  4. Well we use ghee. In our lentil curries, on our paranthas.

    In our coffee? Not in our wildest dreams :eek: At least with the kind of ghee we have here, it's nearly impossible to think how it could be any good with any sort of beverage.

    At first when I read the thread title, I thought- ekh.

    Looked up Ghee, and now it actually sounds kinda good. I know sometimes when there's no cream I'll use milk and a bit of butter or icecream in my coffee.
     
  6. No, I haven't done that and I prefer my coffee to taste like coffee. I don't even add cream or sugar.

    I've put a pinch of garam masala in my coffee before, but I don't think I would dump clarified butter into it.

    Im a straight black coffee drinker myself.

    Though, ghee doesnt seem all that strange when you consider the kinds of things some people put in their coffee, like Coffeemate.

    I might knock on that suff nowadays, but back when I first started drinking coffee flavored CoffeeMate was essential. Usually French Vanilla. These days, its Black or Send it Back.
