A coffee bean is actually a seed of the Coffea Arabica plant. It is generally known as the cherry or red fruit often refer to as a black cherry. As for other fruits, the coffee cherry is also a so-called hard stone fruit.

In the 16th century, it was discovered that this small, dark green coffee bean could make a good coffee beverage. After this discovery, the coffee plant became more popular and more cultivated. During this period, it travelled from the north to the south. In its journey south, it stopped in many countries including: Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, and Columbia. It was here that the coffee beans were first cultivated and it was then that coffee was considered as a luxury food by the people.
The acidity of coffee beans in Abu Dhabi, especially the Arabica beans, has always been recognized as something that affects digestion. There are several chemicals found in coffee beans that have proven to have strong effects on the stomach. These chemicals are mainly acid by-products called tannins, polyphenols and caffeic acid. These compounds contribute to the stomach upset that many coffee drinkers experience each day.
Tannins and polyphenols have been found to be the culprits behind stomach upset, pain, and gas problems. In addition, caffeine and the acid found in coffee beans are what caused heartburn. The cherry coffee beans are the ones that contain the least amount of tannins and polyphenols. This means that less acid and caffeine are needing to produce the painful symptoms. However, it should also be noted that these same compounds do not contribute to heartburn.
Another effect of coffee bean is their effect on the mucilage in the gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage is found between the epithelium and the gut wall. Mucilage serves as a protective layer against food particles, but sometimes food particle can get trapped in the mucilage, which leads to irritation, inflammation, and pain. Some of the foods that cause this kind of problem include: spices, berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, onions, garlic, chives, and tomatoes. Some of the natural antioxidants found in coffee cherries and black cherry beans are believed to be able to prevent damage to the mucilage.
