What is Butter Coffee and why is it so popular?

Butter coffee: It’s the latest taste sensation to sweep the nation. (“Nation,” in this case, refers to America. Apologies to any offended overseas readers. Perhaps this particulartaste sensation has already swept up your lands.) It’s supposed to be better for you than regular coffee; it’s supposed to be smarter than cream-and-sugar coffee; it’s supposed to help regulate your heart and your chi and give you more energy. There are whole neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Portland where the very mention of “standard” coffee gets you a hard stare and a big scarlet C you have to sew onto your clothing.

But what is this marvel of modern science? Where does it come from, and why is it so popular? And, perhaps most importantly: What does it actually do for you?
