How Much Caffeine in Chocolate Espresso Beans?

On average, it takes 2 tablespoons of coffee beans to make a cup of coffee. A cup of coffee, depending on the brewing method, contains 90-150 mg. of caffeine. Eating the coffee beans, as opposed to drinking the coffee, might give you a greater dose of caffeine, and the chocolate coating adds even a bit more caffeine to the mix.

So about 5 beans would give you about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of Joe.
