Maple Buttered Coffee Recipe

There is a trend of putting butter in coffee. I find this sweet and creamy version more palatable.

Maple Buttered Coffee


  • 3 cups coffee
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 pats unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp. half and half


  • Combine one cup of hot coffee with two pats of butter, and add maple syrup and half-and-half. 


  • Nutella and butter on a baguette
  • Raspberry jam and butter on a baguette


This coffee is inspired by three other beverages.

  1. In Tibet, people drink a smoky tea loaded up with yak butter and pink Himalayan salt. It provides fluids, caffeine, fat sodium and calories. It gives you energy to work all day at a high altitude and cold. Once source states that people drink up to 40 cups of this tea a day.
  2. Dave Asprey adapted and Americanized the beverage as buttered coffee, by adding grass-fed butter and coconut oil to coffee.
  3. Hot buttered rum is an English beverage made from hot water or tea, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and of course, rum and butter.

    Wicked good. I left out the cream because I felt more like having black coffee. Unsalted butter and REAL maple syrup are awesome. I generally don’t like unsalted butter, but I’ll keep it around for this coffee if nothing else.

    • Thank you Mack

      appreciate it.

      A chunk of food grade cocoa butter is something I tried recently. Very good. Available on Amazon.
