    Anything that good for you cant taste to good [smiley=tongue.gif].  Having drunk many of Nescafes products (before finding Coffeesnobs 8-)) over the years I cant see them improving with this one.

          I smell gimmick (green beans are cheaper than roasted) but found this

          Raw coffee bean may aid obesity battle

          By Neil Merrett17-Oct-2007 -

          Unroasted green coffee bean extract taken as a drink or supplement can help people reduce weight, according to a new study.

          The study, to be published in the November 2007 edition of the Journal of International Medical Research, was funded by Norway-based Med-Eq, which makes Coffeeslender, a slimming drink made from unroasted green coffee beans.

          Scientist Erling Thom, who headed a team that completed the study, said the research highlighted some benefits in weight reduction by consuming products like Coffeeslender.

          "Green coffee bean extract supplemented coffee has a significant effect on the absorption and utilisation of some nutrients from the diet," he stated. "This effect, when Coffeeslender is used for a reasonable period, has been shown to aid weight management."

          The testing, a randomised, double blind study performed on 30 people, took place over 12 weeks. The testing compared Coffeeslender with instant coffee.

          Half the participants drank Coffeeslender, with the remaining group put on instant coffee.

          Thom reported that the Coffeeslender group recorded an average weight loss of 5.4kg (11.9 lbs) over the period. Those consuming instant coffee by comparison, posted no "significant" difference in weight, according to the study.

              ...not to mention "funded by Norway-based Med-Eq, which makes Coffeeslender"

              Objective science, not

                I want an electric car as well Flynnaus, imagine, charged from solar cells at home/work and never having to bow down to big oil again. Not to mention, in dash HX espresso machine as an option. Mind you, metallic paint is usually $400-$1000 extra as an option, i wonder how much that "fruit" would cost?
                Also love a nice cigar.

                  I saw this the other night and wondered how long it would be before a thread was started
                  Something makes me think I will be leaving it on the shelves.

                    Yeah! However, I have such a morbid fascination that I almost wanna go out and buy some! Its a "I cant look yet I cant look away" type thing...much like a horrible car crash!

                      I reckon it would make a pretty good plant fertiliser.

                            Was in the Coles stoopidmarket yesterday and heard an ad for this on their p.a. Definitely had a "What the...!?" moment with my son and I speculating on the various types to be rushing to buy that product.

                            Couldnt even bear to go to the coffee section to check it out for ourselves!! ;D

                              Im wondering what consumer research they have done on this product. As bad as instant coffee tastes, my not quite roasted long enough beans taste awful. Anyway, wouldnt the process of making it instant cancel out any of the medicinal benefits?
