  1. No info if he's talking about roasted or non-roasted beans. That might change things.

      If you read the article, he is talking about both roasted and unroasted beans.

      In limited amounts and contraindicated with certain problems via a five element theory approach.

      One of the hallmarks of TCM is balance - this not a license to drink a lot.

      I also take issue with the unfounded, overly simplistic and defensive << virtually all proponents of natural health care have tried to convince people that they should stop drinking coffee, as an important step towards becoming healthier.>> Are there some? Sure. A very vocal minority? Likely.
