The coffee made of acorns, or oak nuts, is rich in iron, potassium and magnesium. Health experts say that it helps with menstrual problems; reduces the high blood pressure; and that it can be used for the treatment of hemorrhoids. In the following article, we show you how to make acorn coffee.

How To Make Acorn Coffee

First, put the acorns in a cooking pan and cover them with water, to the top. Put the pan on a preheated stove. Bring the water to boiling point and leave them to boil for about 15 minutes. When the time passes, remove the pan from the heat and pour the water into the drain.

Next, take a sharp knife and peel the acorns one by one. Do this while they’re still warm, to remove the shell more easily. But, be careful not to burn your fingers and take your time. Put the cleaned oak nuts in a food processor, or coffee grinder, and pulse. Once you get a coarse powder, transfer it in a baking tray and place in a preheated oven at 350⁰ F or 175⁰ C. Roast the nut powder for 12 to 15 minutes, until it turns dark brown, similar to the color of regular coffee. Check it regularly, so it doesn’t burn.

Once ready, remove the baking tray from the oven and leave the acorn powder to cool down a bit. Use one teaspoon of roasted acorn powder to make a cup of acorn coffee. Just like you do with regular coffee. Once ready, strain the liquid. That’s it!

Health Benefits Of Acorn Coffee

Acorn coffee helps improve blood count and cures anemia, by balancing the iron levels in the human body. In addition, it helps reduce gout and joint pain, especially in women after 40 years of age; and it eases the symptoms of women with menstrual problems. Also, it regulates digestion problems, helps against external and internal hemorrhoids, normalizes blood pressure, and reduces the increased cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Studies show that acorns contain many active substances, which are not sufficiently used in the pharmaceutical industry. Also, they are rich in minerals such as iron, copper, phosphorus and potassium.

Precaution: Don’t make this coffee if you are allergic to acorns. To check whether you are allergic or not, rub a little bit of the powder on your lips and your tongue. Wait to see if you get any reactions. If you are absolutely sure that you are not allergic to acorns, we recommend you to try this drink!
