: ... I wonder. Would it do anything at all for the color, add a
: different texture to the paste, or do nothing at all?
Though coffee has tannins, comparison tests I've done demonstrate that
adding coffee (cold, or in dried form) makes no difference in stain
results. "Arab coffee", of the sort that has cardamon, added hot,
WILL make henna slightly darker. Folgers Crystals are about as
different from righteous REAL Arab coffee as tricycles are different
from the space shuttle.

Some people have a transdermal uptake of caffeine and if they are
sensitive to caffiene, coffee in the mix will give them the jitters.
Arab coffee can send them into orbit.
