Can you really lose weight... using green coffee?

Green Coffee

This is a subject light years away from my concerns as a roaster but it is worth talking about since I receive more and more requests on this subject.

I can tell you about the aromas of a coffee, the roasting...even the culture. But when it comes to the health sector, I prefer to abstain and let professionals, doctors and shamans of all kinds speak.

Still, recently our sales of green coffee have increased. We are really happy with this increase because we really choose our coffees carefully.

Green coffee to lose weight? La Brûlerie du Quai explains it to you.

Renewed interest in green coffee, for its slimming properties?

The section of the website that offers green coffee was designed primarily for commercial and residential roasters. Well, those for whom these products were intended are not the biggest buyers.

So I found out about this trend by doing a very in-depth search, I Googled “green coffee for weight loss”. Well, what was my surprise to see that the subject seemed serious, as did the research around the phenomenon.

Using green coffee to lose weight: here's what I found

Here I am providing you with a summary of the results of my internet research.

  • Eating green coffee seems to help you lose weight

  • There would be no side effects

  • Specialists explain that during roasting, coffee loses a majority of its component chlorogenic acid, a powerful antioxidant.

  • Drinking an infusion of ground green coffee is disgusting

  • Nutritionists recommend taking it in capsule form as a dietary supplement.

  • Green coffee would reduce the intestinal absorption of sugars and accelerate the elimination of fats.

  • There has not yet been a study on the impact that this phenomenon can have on digestive metabolism.

  • A daily dose is necessary for the desired effect to be visible after two to three months.

  • People who take green coffee to lose weight don't have to move

  • The studies that have been presented are still preliminary and randomly conclusive

I recommend this recipe for weight loss using green coffee

  • Put 10 green coffee beans in a glass of water in the evening.

  • Leave to macerate overnight.

  • Drink water in the morning.

  • You lose weight without changing your diet, also very effective against cholesterol...

I remain a proponent of calorie accounting, calorie debit and credit. Simplistic perhaps, but I tend to be wary of miracle weight loss techniques.

Do you know the one where you boil old grapefruit peels and you have to drink the broth? Yum…

If the calorie intake is greater than what we expend, we gain weight. If it's the opposite, we lose weight.

Here are my suggestions:

    • Less sugar, more fruit

    • Less meat, more vegetables

    • Less soda, more water

    • Less worry, more sleep

    • Less words, more actions

    • Less TV, more gym

And above all, you have to sweat. Have your forehead wet at least once a day. 30 minutes of exercise.


All this to say that if you want to buy green coffee , we will be happy to send you your order, whether for roasting, losing weight or even making table centerpieces.

Also be careful not to damage your grinder. Green coffee is very dense and grinds difficult.

See you at the gym, the dojo or the soccer field!

    Merci Dany. C’est top ce que vous avez écrit! Bref, concis et honnête.
    Heureusement que je suis tombé très vite sur votre publication avant de me noyer dans cet océan d’informations souvent fallacieuses et parfois même dangereuses.
    Il y a plus de quatre ans, semble t-il, que vous aviez publié cet article, mais pour moi il est toujours d’actualité et il m’a été salutaire, tout cartésien que je me considère, car j’étais sur le point de commander à des prix hors normes, des petits sachets dits de grains de café vert sélectionnés et dédiés pour l’amaigrissement sans peine.
    Merci pour ton honnêteté et ta transparence. Je souhaite que tous les chercheurs du café vert, passent par ton article… A bon entendeur, salut.
