While searching around on the internet I stumbled across Tongkat Ali Coffee.
At first, it seemed like a bad idea to me. If you’ve ever tried Tongkat Ali you know that it is extremely bitter. I initially thought it would ruin the flavor of a good cup of coffee. But then I thought perhaps the bitterness of the two might go together. So I thought I’d give it a shot and make my own Tongkat Ali Coffee as you can see in the video here.
If you enjoy the taste of black coffee it’s a pretty good indicator you might be able to handle the extraordinarily bitter taste of Tongkat Ali. Otherwise, well…you might not be ready for it!
My guess is that with these various Tongkat Ali coffee’s the extract isn’t very strong. Although the coffee above was drinkable it wasn’t as tasty as I normally prefer. However, if you can’t stand the taste, there are techniques to lessen it, as I explained in this video.
While having a cup or two can bring benefits to your health, and adding herbs to it works even better as the caffeine acts as a delivery vehicle which helps with distributing these nutrients throughout our system.
How to Make It Yourself
Mixing powder into your coffee (or any other drink for that matter) may prove to be difficult, as it doesn’t always dissolve completely. For that reason, I like to blend it in with a little pure coconut oil and ghee, Bulletproof-Style.
Ghee is pure fat without the milk proteins (whey and casein) and sugars (lactose), so even people who are sensitive or intolerant to dairy can still use it. Just blend it for a couple of seconds (a mini whisk works great) and you’ll get a nice, creamy texture that tastes pretty good. Ghee may be creamy or sometimes it liquifies at room temperature. However, ghee does not have to be stored in the refrigerator.
The bitterness will still be there, but it’s a lot more palatable and the fat will help to optimize your hormones and to deliver the Tongkat Ali throughout your system in a more efficient manner.
Go ahead and give it a shot and be sure to let me know how you like it in the comments below…
