Chocolate Espresso Beans & Caffeine
Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans is one of Dilettante’s most popular confections. These elegant treats feature whole espresso beans in Dilettante’s white, milk, dark, and marbled chocolate blends. The mocha-like flavor is easy to enjoy, but it is important not to eat too many in the evening.
Similar to coffee, Dilettante’s Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans are caffeinated. However, eating espresso beans whole provides more energy than drinking a cup of coffee. About sixty coffee beans are needed to make one cup of coffee, but eating only one-tenth of these beans are needed to receive the same amount of energy.
How Much Caffeine is in One Espresso Bean?
Dilettante makes each of its Chocolate-Covered Espresso Bean flavors using its own coffee blend. The medium-dark roast coffee is considered an arabica blend, generally made of 1.2-1.5% caffeine. By eating these beans whole, a person can receive the full potency of this caffeine content.
One single arabica coffee bean contains two milligrams of caffeine. Even though eating espresso beans means consuming less caffeine, the way the body digests beans gives more energy. Eating a serving size of eleven espresso beans will make a person feel like they finished drinking two cups of coffee.

Are Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans Healthy?
Dark chocolate has long been considered the healthiest chocolate for a good reason. Different amounts of cacao bean parts are used to make different chocolate varieties. A high amount of cacao solids means a fruitier and darker chocolate taste, providing more nutrition than its white and milk chocolate counterparts.
Both dark chocolate and espresso beans are rich in antioxidants which help fight disease and sickness. These nutrients strengthen the body’s immune system to stay healthy throughout the day and are especially important during the fall and winter seasons.
Other Espresso Bean Benefits
Dark espresso beans provide the most nutrition, but all chocolate espresso beans lead to positive outcomes. One significant benefit is the energy these espresso beans can provide. Chocolate-covered espresso beans are a great way to wake up in the morning and remain functioning for the rest of the day.
Espresso beans have close to no calories, making them a great alternative to other dessert options. For example, a serving of eleven espresso bean pieces is 150 calories, much less than other, more traditional chocolate and candies.
Those who drink coffee will save money after switching to eating espresso beans as well. Dilettante’s Chocolate Covered Espresso Bean Blend Jar costs the same as six or seven trips to a coffee shop and provides over three pounds of espresso beans to enjoy.
