Can you eat coffee beans

Can you eat coffee beans?

Can you eat coffee beans and is it actually tasty? Here comes the answer!

What would life be without coffee? Guaranteed only half as livable.

Many people cannot get out of bed in the morning without their beloved hot drink. I count myself among them.

In zombie mode, I sneak to the coffee machine. I fill them with fresh beans. Half of it ends up on the sideboard next to the machine.

I stand there completely tired and ask myself: Can you eat coffee beans? That would make things a lot easier.

Have you ever asked yourself that too?

Something from which our favorite drink is made can at least not be poisonous :)

Eating coffee beans - is that possible?

Yes! You can eat roasted coffee beans. They are cheering and crispy.

However, you should only consume them in moderation. There is a lot of caffeine in the beans.

These are the best gifts for coffee junkies!

When brewing coffee, the caffeine is mixed with water and diluted. Not every bit of caffeine ends up in the cup.

Eat 20 coffee beans = 1 espresso

And you quickly nibbled 20 pieces. Much faster than you think.

100 grams of beans contain around 840 milligrams of caffeine.

Why eating coffee beans is healthy

That’s what the coffee junkies have been waiting for, right? :) Nibbling coffee beans is actually healthy.

You can find vitamins B2, B3, B5 and B6 in beans.

However, they are not a huge vitamin bomb. Many B vitamins are lost during roasting.

Eat coffee beans and the effect

Like normal coffee, beans are also small pick-me-ups.

It takes about half an hour for the caffeine from the coffee beans to take full effect.

In contrast to drinking coffee, it takes longer for the caffeine to reach the body. When we chew the beans, large particles are created that our body first has to break down. And then slowly release it into the blood.

Mega yummy: juicy coffee brownies with peanut butter!

Now the good news: If you rely on eating coffee beans instead of drinking coffee, you will benefit from it longer. The caffeine effect lasts longer.

Tip: Coffee beans taste different depending on the type. I find Melitta whole beans with a taste of dark chocolate particularly delicious. You can order the coffee beans from Amazon.

If you drink coffee regularly and your body is used to the caffeine, the effects last for about 2 to four hours.

But if you never drink coffee and then want to eat coffee beans, you will benefit from it longer. In such a case, the caffeine lasts up to 10 hours until it is completely broken down.

By the way: Non-smokers enjoy the caffeine kick longer. The effect dissipates faster in smokers.

But because the caffeine works more slowly, you shouldn't eat too much the first time you try it. Observe how your body reacts to it.

So please no more than 20 pieces. So you've already had an espresso for 4 hours anyway.

Is coffee suitable for weight loss?

How coffee beans taste

In short: like very intense coffee.

The taste, of course, depends on the coffee beans you eat. Some are sour, some bitter and others mild.

You have to crunch your way through the range and find your favorite.

By the way: coffee beans taste best when they are covered in chocolate. For this I use dark, dark chocolate without sugar. A dream!

Tip: Do you love coffee more than anything? Then you are sure to like the book “I love coffee: Over 50 great recipes from cold brew to coffee brownies”, which you can order from Amazon.

The sweet aroma of the chocolate and the tart aroma of the coffee bean harmonize wonderfully.

Coffee beans look good as a decoration on cakes, tarts or desserts.

Whether eating coffee beans will help you lose weight

Countless blogs report that eating coffee beans should prevent cravings. If that's true? Unfortunately we don't know. There are no studies on this. At least I couldn't find one.

Eating coffee beans is guaranteed to distract us. This is a good tactic that often works if you have a large appetite.

You have to differentiate between hunger and appetite. Do you have an appetite and the craving for something sweet even though you are not hungry?

Then try chewing coffee beans. The taste and chewing are distracting.

That can work, but it doesn't have to be. The best thing to do is just try it out. But I wouldn't rely on the tip. Changing your diet is certainly more effective than eating coffee beans.

Cover coffee beans with chocolate

It's so easy and so delicious. I just have to tell you how I make chocolate coffee beans myself. You don't need to buy it. It's very quick.

What you need:

  • 1 handful of roasted coffee beans
  • 50-80 grams of dark chocolate

Tip: I buy sugar-free dark chocolate from Amazon.

  • Fill a saucepan halfway with water. Bring it to a boil.
  • Put the chocolate in a mug, glass, or metal bowl. Place the vessel in the pot with the hot water.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  • Grab a spoon and add a small amount of beans to the chocolate.
  • Use the spoon to fish the beans out of the chocolate and place them on baking paper.
  • Let the chocolate cool and set. Finished :)

Don't feel like doing it yourself? You can also buy chocolate coffee beans online.

Our conclusion

Eating coffee beans is just wonderful. Especially when you cover them with chocolate. But they taste delicious even without them.

Just don't overdo it the first time you try it.

Good luck and enjoy it! :)
