Can Coffee Beans Be Eaten?

Is it a good idea to chew a coffee bean to get the benefits of alertness and energy boost if you really don’t mind the taste of brewed coffee? Let’s figure this out!

Is chewing coffee bad?

Not necessarily, but the taste of the coffee bean is extremely bitter. In fact, still ground, prepared and served in a steaming cup, and without sugar, it is still very bitter. If you really like the taste of coffee beans, we recommend you look for coffee beans covered in chocolate (quality beans with quality chocolate).

Well, having said that, let’s see what are the positive and negative points of chewing a coffee bean.

Benefits of chewing coffee beans

Energy instantly in the morning: If you have not slept well, it is most likely that in the morning you will find yourself exhausted. To recover energy instantly, crush some coffee beans with a pinch of cardamom seeds, prepare a coffee with it and drink it without milk, you will feel able to eat the world.

Bad breath after eating garlic: Garlic is a very healthy and tasty food that is often included in our diet. It only has one drawback: its effects on the breath are disastrous. To avoid the bad smell of the mouth, there is nothing better than slowly chewing a coffee bean. It is the simplest and most effective remedy.

A coffee and goodbye to the headache: Coffee can affect us very differently. Many people find great headache relief by having a cup of tea and aspirin at the same time. There are, however, sensitive people that coffee produces the opposite effect and causes migraines.

Diuretic effect: Coffee has a compound, theophylline, which makes it a powerful diuretic. The prudent consumption of this drink, therefore, helps fight fluid retention.

Low tension: This drink is also considered a good cardiac tonic. If you have low blood pressure, you can momentarily relieve the discomfort it produces (dizziness, weakness, apathy) with a cup of coffee. It is not advisable, however, to abuse this remedy, since excessive consumption can be counterproductive.

Good digestion: A coffee after a copious meal can favor digestion, as it increases intestinal peristalsis. Avoid, however, in case of delicate stomachs.

Improves physical and intellectual performance: Coffee prevents muscle fatigue and enhances physical ability. It is also very useful for increasing reflexes, staying alert and increasing intellectual performance.

The effects of coffee, however, do not last forever. A cup, for example, provides us with a maximum of three or four hours of “walking.” For this double stimulating effect, coffee is much appreciated.

Cons of consuming coffee (in excess)

  • It produces changes in sleep patterns.
  • It causes auditory hallucinations.
  • Mixed with substances such as milk, sugar and other additives of dehydrated vegetable creams is dangerous to health because it increases cholesterol.
  • Increase day or night tachycardias.
