  1. In short, no; swallowing coffee beans is not a way to get caffeinated.
    The coffee drink is an extraction of the chemicals in the beans as well as very very tiny particulates from the ground coffee.
    Swallowing finely ground coffee, like coffee ground for espresso or Turkish coffee would just about do it, but you risk a stomach irritation. Swallowing whole beans results largely of beans passing through the gut with very small amounts of chemical extraction.

  2. I would think a coffee bean would not be easy to chew. They still have caffeine, but I do not know the amount of caffeine in a normal bean or in a Mc Cafe coffee. Decaffeinated coffee has other toxic ingredients that replace the caffeine, so I do not drink any coffee.

  3. swallowing them whole, probably not. But chewing them definitely. It doesn’t take many. Perhaps 6 chewed beans to equal a large coffee. Chocolate covered coffee beans are a delicacy.

  4. No.
    Your body cannot extract the caffeine from the coffee bean (assuming it was roasted properly).
    Coffee hits us hard because it’s in liquid form and easily absorbed into the bloodstream.
    Meanwhile, coffee beans are a hard, solid structure of cellular fibers. It will resist your attempts to digest it and be pooped out whole — you know, just like how the civet cats poop them out so you can enjoy your civet coffee.
    This is something people following the “eat raw” movements don’t quite get. Sure, you have more nutrients in the food, but your body can’t really get to it as well if you don’t cook and prepare it, because your digestive tract is designed/evolved to extract nutrients from cooked food.
    Chewing/crushing/brewing the coffee is how your body can easily extract the stuff in it.

  5. There might be traces of caffeine being extracted, but not much.
    However, the beans will go through the whole digestion process and will be altered to some extent. But they may still be reused just like in the famous and insanely expensive cat poop coffee. Here is an article about this:
    Kopi Luwak anyone? It’s just $80 a cup. – all about coffee
    If you try this with your digestive tract I would like to hear from you about the result. Maybe you can sell those beans at an outrageous price too.

  6. You know about civet coffee right? Well if you swallow coffee beans you will probably end up with a much less appealing human version of Kopi Luwak.

  7. Nopes, swallowing won’t give you the caffeine hunger satisfaction. It may not be a healthy practice as well.
    Basically the caffeine effects adds up when beans are properly brewed in a coffee maker.
