When Arrowood invited me to host a Sunday dinner in the rolling hills of their Glen Ellen vineyard in Sonoma county, it was an easy yes. Bring a bunch of friends along to hang out on a Sunday afternoon, to cook together and to learn about their wines? Of course. This is what the dreamiest […]


  • Stacy - What a beautiful day and a delicious-looking spread! I so wish I could have made it. Sounds like you met that pairing challenge quite successfully. It’s morning, but I could definitely eat a grilled pizza with figs right now.ReplyCancel

Hello! I am so excited to announce the dreamiest summer workshop in the hills of Petaluma on Saturday, July 25th. We’ll spend the afternoon exploring my approach to visual storytelling by diving into color, composition, natural light, and the bounty of summer on location at the gorgeous Bloomfield Farms in Petaluma.

Years ago, when I was in India, I spent some time in the town of Dharamsala. It was a welcome respite from India’s chaos and overstimulation. Situated in the foothills of the Himalayas, Dharamsala is where the Tibetan government in exile is based, and there is a large community of Tibetan refugees who have made […]


  • Nicole - I’ve just started to get into coffee and the bulletproof coffee intrigues me! I love this frothy and beautiful version.ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - It is my favorite thing ever. :)ReplyCancel

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar - This is such a neat recipe!! Love this idea!ReplyCancel

  • Kasey - Wow, I don’t even like coconut, but your description of this coffee sounds heavenly. Beautiful writing about the event, too…It is amazing how our emotions can be triggered by a memory of taste.ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - Thank you, Kasey! The coconut flavor is subtle – there’s also a faint fragrance of coconut, but I’m a coconut freak. :)ReplyCancel

  • Kathryn - What a powerful piece of writing Kimberley; thank you for sharing your memories and stories with us.ReplyCancel

  • Ksenia @ At the Immigrant's Table - I appreciate the beautiful story, especially as it makes me more excited to try coconut butter coffee. I have honestly never understood this trend, and wasn’t quite looking forward to trying it, either… But your recipe makes it sound honest and beautiful. Thank you for this!ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - I had the same reaction to this trend too, so I especially appreciate hearing this. Thanks Ksenia!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - Was just about to make a latte before I read this, but as I love coconut I am now off to make a coconut coffee instead – I don’t have butter, only hard oil, which doesn’t look too different to your photos, fingers crossed.ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - Coconut oil totally works! And who knew that an immersion blender can essentially make a latte? It’s my favorite thing.ReplyCancel

  • Ashley - This is SO happening. Whipping up some coconut butter, STAT!ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - Next, I need to make my own coconut butter.ReplyCancel

  • cynthia - This is such a beautiful post, Kimberley. Thank you for sharing, and for this gorgeous coconut butter coffee — I can’t wait to try it!ReplyCancel

  • Melisa - Normally I don’t like coffee, but I’m definitely going to try this out! X


  • RIa - How do you make the coconut butter? I would love this coffee!ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - Hi Ria! You can actually buy coconut butter at most health food stores, and I believe that Trader Joe’s carries it now too. You can substitute coconut oil as well, which is more readily available.ReplyCancel

  • Gaby - This looks like a fantastic coffee, love that you used coconut butter!ReplyCancel

  • Emily - This beautiful post inspired me to make coconut butter from scratch for the first time yesterday (it was so easy!) and now I have this delicious frothy thing in front of me. Thank you! Having something to look forward to in the morning is pretty much the only way I get out of bed, and this is perfect.ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - I love that! I still have not made it from scratch (apart from one failed attempt that overheated my food processor.) It is exactly what I need to feel enthused in the morning too. A revolution!ReplyCancel

  • Kirstie - Your writing is so moving. The photographs are beautifully inspiring and light and you’ve created an amazing feeling around your ritual. I need to try this. Thank you for sharing!ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - Thank you so much, Kristie! I couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful response. It’s appreciated. :)ReplyCancel

  • thefolia - Wow that sounds like quite the experience…the things we take for granted :(ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer - I like your cooking blog! Check out my blog too! Let’s connect!


  • Aimee - How much milk do you think you use?ReplyCancel

  • Djaniella - YUM! Wow this looks super delicious :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE coffee and have never heard of the use of coconut butter. Does it substitute as the sweetener for the coffee?ReplyCancel

  • Tarin Lindsey - This CREAMY COCONUT BUTTER COFFEE recipe looks delicious and yummy. Your ingredients is good with perfect background. I have to make this and share it with my friends. I am so excited to prepare this recipe.Thanks for this recipe I learned a lot. GREAT!


  • Wei - I think my mind exploded just from reading the title. This looks so amazing! Your photos are always so beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Linda - I prefer using coconut cream and coconut oil in my coffee, but I love the idea of using an emersion blender. I’ve been using my stand blender, but recently noticed that the hot coffee might be affecting one of the seals. A wide mouth jar and hand blender is the perfect solution. Especially since both me and my husband like blending our coffee. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Ronoh Robert - Can tea be used as alternative for coffee?ReplyCancel

  • martin - this drink is inspired by such a sad story, feeling almost sad as i drink it.ReplyCancel

  • paul - between tea and coffee I will always go for coffee.ReplyCancel

  • tabby - just stumbled on to your blog.So happy.ReplyCancel

  • Rosy - Thanks for sharing. Really nice.ReplyCancel

  • Tools of Chefs - Beautiful story Kimberley! Sad that not much has changed for the Tibetans since that tragic incident.

    Also your pictures are simply breathtaking!

    Question regarding the recipe. Do you think it would be ok to use Soy milk instead of an Almond or Coconut milk? Not sure if it might mix up the flavors too much?


  • Jarvis - very nice i like the looks of themReplyCancel

  • DrinkOfTheGods - This stuff is amazing! I drink it almost every morning, but especially if I need to study or push my brain. It really gets your brain going in amazing ways. Better short-term memory, enhanced awareness, I stay full and I feel great!ReplyCancel
