All You Need To Know About Bulletproof Coffee In Singapore

There is only one product in the world capable of instilling so much excitement and fear in man – Coffee. The rush you get and the crash you feel is real with coffee. Well, until bulletproof coffee came along.

While this coffee was and is the new rave for healthy foods on the go, bulletproof coffee has been a staple delicacy in Singapore for ages. Perhaps they did not call it “bulletproof”, but it offered the same energy rush without the crash landing part. However, before we delve into this rather on-the-fence topic, we have a favorite brand that has wow consumers with its attention to details and delicacy in taste. It is not clear if Singaporeans noticed the difference or not; Beforeyouspeak is a health brand that has been at the forefront of pushing for a healthy society in Singapore. Their brand is uses spices and herbs to infuse a more unique taste and flavour into the regular coffee. These additions have also boosted the efficacy and potency of their bulletproof coffee to deliver incredible benefits to the body. Today, the brand boasts of selling over 2 million coffee cups in two years and is still waxing strong. There are many reasons we love Beforeyouspeak, but that will be detailed later as we progress in the article. However, for clarity sake, Beforeyouspeak is a premium blend of coffee infused with superfood for the total wellbeing of the consumer. 

Coffee - The Bean

With a global market value of $24.39 billion in 2019, the coffee bean market is expected to hit above $30 billion by 2025. That is certainly not surprising considering the impact coffee has made on man and economies since it was discovered. Today, specialty coffees are on the rise by 20 percent, and coffee production and consumption accounts for 8 percent of the US economy. There are many sides to the legend of how coffee came into existence, regardless of which route you choose, it leads to the plateau of Ethiopia. The most exciting myth about coffee bean history is of the farmer whose goats ate the cherries of a plant that kept them up at night. He reported his findings to a monastery, and the rest, as they say, is history. Gradually coffee spread throughout the world, and over the centuries, it has been transformed and enjoyed a million ways. These tiny beans from the hills of Ethiopia are the second most traded commodity in the world with more trade routes than any other products around the globe. So as coffee was going around visiting and transforming societies and economies, it happens to find its way to Singapore.

How are Specialty Coffee brands faring in the Singaporean Market?

Singapore is at the center of where the conventional meets the modern intriguingly. Since the days of modernizing kopi café, the country has grown to embrace the coffee culture. Whether you are sitting in a modern shop or enjoying one at the street corner, coffee is a reason to come to Singapore. While the US coffee market remains dominant in the market, countries like Singapore are trailing behind with big numbers and outstanding growth rates. The specialty coffee shop is the fastest growing market in the world today. It is said to experience a forecast growth rate of 13% over the next couple of years and projected to make revenue of 81 billion US dollars in 2020 – 2024. The Singapore instant coffee market is said to reach 98 million US$ by 2025. The coffee scene is so vibrant and the market is also accommodating. Despite new brands, Singaporeans are still drawn to the Kopi coffee and prefer it to other coffees. Singaporeans average over 1000 cups of coffee by blue-collar consumers with the man at the side street drinking up to 4 cups of kopi or coffee to get by in their daily hustle. Furthermore, the use of high caffeine Robusta coffee bean is another reason why people like Kopi to enjoy the sweetness and rush associated with it.

The Coffee Culture in Singapore

Singapore has a fascinating coffee history and culture. Although it is not among the top five coffee drinkers in the world, Singaporeans love their coffee time, and it is always a good thing to sit down for one. In fact, Kopi and kaya toast is a breakfast specialty in most restaurants and eateries that serve it as morning food to their customer. Kopitiam, or coffee shop culture, dates back centuries ever since the colonial rulers opened their first coffee shop in the countries. 

Today, Singapore has a rich and diverse history at whose center is the best coffee culture no one ever thought of talks about. Whether premium or specialty coffee brands, Singapore has some of the best. In fact, if you are looking for a great place to unwind with a cup of in-house brewed coffee, visit the Common Man Coffee Roaster Café. They have delicious blends that would make you sit all day.  Carrotsticks & Cravings boasts fresh Melbourne roasted coffee by Brother Basil right in Singapore!   One could also visit Ya Kun and Killney that are said to be the oldest coffee shops in the country, dating back to the early 1900. The coffee cups are amazingly delicious with the traditional old feel and way of making coffee. 

As we talk about coffee, one product that has transformed the coffee scene is bulletproof coffee. Singapore had bulletproof coffee even before it became a thing in western countries. The coffee was called Kopi Gu You, which translates from Coffee Butter. This drink has been a staple since the early 20th century. The coffee was made with brewed roasted coffee bean with condensed milk and butter for some smooth, creamy, and silky coffee blend to power you through the day. Today, the coffee blends are roasted with sugar and butter/lard. This process caramelize the coffee eliminating the need for adding butter, which gives the coffee a rich, robust taste without the oily after taste.

What is bulletproof coffee?

Bulletproof coffee is a drink that contains coffee, healthy fats, and butter. This concoction is targeted at giving you the same excitement as black coffee without the crash and burn feeling afterward. If you use the right ingredients, a cup of bulletproof coffee should provide 250 to 500 calories and enough energy to propel you through the day.

Why would you use bulletproof coffee (as part of a Keto Diet?)

Keto is a diet regimen where the body is denied its usual carbohydrate to enable it to go into ketosis by burning excess fats for fuel. This process triggers weight loss, improve mental and cognitive health, boost energy levels, and suppresses craving and appetite. Coffee is usually enjoyed with full-fat milk, cream, or a bit of both. 

These are considered as foods with high carbs and a no-no for keto dieters. Fats – butter, MCTs, and other healthy fats are part of getting the body into ketosis. Bulletproof coffee is the fastest way to achieve this without jeopardizing your keto status and curb the pesky cravings of carbs.

However, we cannot talk about bulletproof coffee without mentioning David Asprey. He is the 47 years old American and founder of the bulletproof diet and brand. It is poised to help you lose weight, regain your sanity, and have your system working in unison without the side effects. The bulletproof diet was David’s way of hacking into your biological system and turning back the hands of time. After years of experiment and funding, David perfected the bulletproof diet and lowered his biological age and more. He slept better, has better mental and emotional health, lost 100 pounds with skipping meals or his favorite food, and improved his IQ by 20. Through David, the bulletproof coffee has grown to be a versatile brand incorporating other healthy foods for more benefits.

However, over 100 countries in the world have a signed pact to ensure that only the best coffee beans are roasted and transformed into the various coffee brands you enjoy.  Thanks to these strict laws governing coffee, coffee makers, growers, and roasters, mold and mycotoxin levels are always to the lowest minimum that the human body can bear..
