  1. I’d guess about 50 but you need to weigh them and count. Robustas have more caffeine than Arabica and are bigger. So it will depend on what kind of coffee you favour.

  2. Despite providing very little energy from calories, coffee beans give you a boost because of their high caffeine content. In fact, eating coffee beans provides you with much more caffeine than drinking coffee. In comparison with the 95 milligrams in 1 cup of brewed coffee, a 28-bean serving of dark chocolate-covered coffee beans contains 336 milligrams of caffeine. As 1 ounce of dark chocolate contains only 24 milligrams of caffeine, you can obtain a similar amount of caffeine without the added calories by eating coffee beans on their own.

  3. The standard coffee recipe calls for approximately 15 grams of coffee per 8 ounces of water. Adjust to taste.
    Darker roast coffee is lighter by volume, lighter roast coffee is heavier by volume, so the number of beans will vary according to the roast level.

  4. There are 6mg of caffeine in the average roasted arabica coffee bean and 12mg in the average roasted robusta coffee bean. Most high quality coffee drinks are prepared using arabica (if it’s good quality). An average espresso has 40mg of caffeine in and an average filter has 90mg. So for an arabica espresso you’d need to eat just over 6 and a half beans and 15 for a filter coffee. For robusta it would be just over 3 and 7.5 robusta beans. Hope this helps.

  5. However many you feel like. Just be advised that the effects that you would normally get from coffee will be magnified, and that includes the negative side effects. It’s not like we can give you an absolute number. Everyone is different and tolerances will vary.

  6. A lot of variables are needed to answer this question. Some would be is it a medium or dark roast, French press, drip or espresso. In most cases it’s approximately 7 grams of ground coffee per 6oz of water.
