I can't imagine someone grinding coffee beans and actually eating the coffee that way. I imagine the granuals getting stuck in between your teeth. Not a pretty picture!
I've seen chocolate covered coffee beans in candy shops...but I've never thought about trying one.
I'd be afraid of breaking a tooth if I ate one. I broke a tooth by accidently eating an un-popped pop corn kernel once, and it cost me a fortune to have my tooth capped!
I've never eaten ground coffee, but since I tasted one of those chocolate-covered coffee beans...well from time to time I like to keep a coffee bean in my mouth...and I end up eating it sometimes!
And I also add 1-2 coffeebeans to homemade chocolates....
When I have a booth at a coffee show, especially at Christmas, I prepare small gold packet of chocolate covered coffee beans for my purchasers as a thank you. Since the coffee is expensive, they really love it. And I admit, I eat quite a bit of it myself to keep me going. The dark chocolate is so delish with the crunchy beans inside, like a Godiva Glossette raisin or peanut?
I put a small promo label on them to keep the label closed.
You will love them and we buy them in bulk at the local bulk barn or whatever. Here is is called JohnVince Foods. 5 Pounds makes about 100 packets.
