Old school American-style filter coffee with a large chunk of French butter whipped in.
Drink this early, then come in after the morning cow work for a late breakfast.
One year we might turn one of the herd into a house cow and make the butter at home.

Trust a kiwi to get bitter coffee and butter coffee confused.
I like you showing us what you are drinking and eating. It’s a snapshot of life.
Sometimes the food is quite different from the US equivalent. But really I’m just jealous of the wife’s food blog.
I like butter with everything. including eating it straight up. However, I’ve never tried it with coffee.
Only a farmer could work off that many calories in his morning coffee! 🙂 Seriously, can you milk Salers? I mean, obviously they give milk, but do they give enough to share with the calf? I’m getting Siobhan ready to milk when her calf is born this spring. And no, I have no plans to milk Sara at this point. As a novice milker, I’ll take a cow without horns (even though I know you love them!)
Shree, it makes coffee taste better IMHO.
They use Salers to make cheese, either Salers (in the spring/summer when it is grass-fed) or Cantal the rest of the year. Now about 10% of the national herd are milkers and on our farm there are a couple that are from a milking family. I have a theory that they’ll taste the best, too.
We’re still debating the horn situation.
Michael, the question is how do you get a good cappuccino with butter?
