Let Me Explain to You Why Rice Coffee Could Be Your New Beverage (2022)

Last summer, I endured some stomach problems that caused me to get care.

With their prescriptions, I was able to recover a bit- but not enough.

Then, my mother told me about a remedy that my family in the Philippines drink called rice coffee.

Now you may have heard of this remedy before, but let me address to you what kind of rice coffee I was recommended to drink before any confusion occurs.

This kind of rice coffee is completely plain. In other words, the rice is burned on a pan where it gets grounded into fine powder.

With the powder, it's mixed together with hot water (hence the coffee part).

After waiting for it to cool down, I drank it. I did not use sugar nor cream.

When I was told about this kind of rice coffee, I felt skeptical that it would help me, but at the same time, I was willing to try anything to get better.

Below is the recipe for the rice coffee I drank everyday before eating my first meal:

The Recipe (with visual reference)

1. Scoop 1-2 cups of uncooked rice (any kind) and place it into a pan.

2. Put the stove on MEDIUM and wait at least ten minutes or until it fully burns. It would be best preferred NOT to cook the rice in your home as it could smell inside. If you have a backyard and there's not a lot of people around, you can cook it there.

3. After cooking it, put it to the side to cool off.

4. Fine grind the rice into a coffee grinder (see from left to right).

5. With hot water, (roughly 12 ounces (1.5 cups)), use 1 tablespoon of the powdered rice coffee. Stir until it is equally mixed. Let it sit until you feel it is warm enough to drink. Enjoy!

Final Thoughts

I figure it’s best to share this information with you so that this could potentially help you.

If not, at least you read me out and gave this beverage a try.

And another note- it's better to drink the coffee hot than cold for better results. In the beginning, you will taste the bitterness of the coffee, but if you continue to drink it, you will more than likely get used to its taste and not mind the bitterness after all.

I know it’s a lot different than coffee and tea, but this beverage helpes me out a lot.

If this drink helped you, share it with your loved ones.

You never know- this could be the remedy somebody needs.
