Coffee this, coffee that…one moment we read that coffee is bad for your health. The next moment we read the exact opposite – that it is actually good. There really is no definitive information on this topic. But what I do know is that people have not stopped trying to look for alternatives to coffee. Why exactly I would want to find an alternative to coffee, I really do not know but for those of you who are looking for another – similar – drink, then check this out: locust bean coffee.
I don’t really feel like drinking anything that comes from an insect but what the heck, it won’t hurt to take a look right? Yeah, my ignorance just shone through right there – locust bean is NOT an insect! I just overlooked the word BEAN right after locust. Sorry guys, when I see locust, I remember the story in the Bible wherein God sent locusts to eat all the stuff in Egypt.
Anyway, locust bean is supposed to be good for you. It keeps your cholesterol levels down. It also promotes bone growth. Oh yeah, and it is supposed to be an aphrodisiac…now you got me interested! 😉
So what’s the relation between the locust bean and coffee? It is now being used as instant coffee! Now I have turned you off, haven’t I? I know that some of you ONLY drink brewed coffee and I totally understand that – I am the same. There are times when you just can’t have brewed, though. And if you are thinking of stocking up on some of that instant stuff, maybe the
insect locust bean coffee would do?
