Reply to "to eat large amounts/numbers of coffee beans"

Hi, Barry,

I agree with you that "numbers" sounds worse than "amounts." That might be because "number" makes us think of the individual units, and coffee beans are not expected to be counted! "amount" gives us the idea of coffee beans forming a large load of things.

"quantities" would be perhaps the best choice.
