Hello! Coffee beans as organic products are available, and safe for most to eat. You can eat them as it
contains fiber, other vitamins. Each bean contains 0.8 - 2.5 % caffeine. For your information in an average
cup of coffee you have 75mg caffeine. One cup of coffee contains around 25 coffee beans, and you are not
getting the full coffee bean in coffee, so the caffeine can add up if you eat a lot. You can calculate and
eat beans accordingly without causing any harm. You can easily consume 150-250mg coffee maximum regularly.
Caffeine if consumed at a quantity of 150-250mg produces a sense of well being, alertness, beats boredom,
allays fatigue, thinking becomes clearer even when dullness has tended to prevail after a sustained
intellectual effort, improves performance and increases motor activity. Sprinkling crushed beans over ice
cream or having a few handfuls of chocolate covered coffee beans in one sitting is not going to turn you into
a caffeine addict or make you sick. However, eating coffee beans whole is the purest form of allowing caffeine
to enter the bloodstream and can have negative effects in large doses or if eaten on a consistent basis.
Coffee has a high acidity level, eating regularly can lead to stomach pains. Hot flashes over the entire body
may result from eating beans regularly. The loss of motor skills or the inability to do normal tasks can
happen when too many coffee beans are eaten. It is easy to overdose on coffee beans because of their high
concentration of caffeine. Symptoms of exhaustion, fatigue, fever and an increased heart rate can occur when
high doses of caffeine are consumed from coffee beans. People who do not normally drink coffee and have other
risk factors for heart disease may increase their risk of a heart attack if they drink too much coffee or eat
too many beans regularly. So with controlled intake and with proper understanding of pros and cons this will
cause no harm to you. Take care!
