Could you live on beans and coffee only??

This is something very interesting. A friend of mine went to visit a remote area in Mexico. He said while he was there all they had to eat was beans and Coffee. The people in that village only ate that.. everyday. Could you survive on this food? Also would you get bored of it?

I like beans, all kinds & I love coffee. Beans are very nutritious. Howevrr, I doubt whether beans contain all the vitamins we need daily. I am quite sure coffee does not contain sufficient daily vitamins. So, I suspect these people suffer from various vitamin deficiencies. So, if I was to go on a beans & coffee diet, I would go crazy from lack of certain vitamins.

I have severe food allergies, so if I eat too much of one kind of food, I'll develop an allergy to it. So I'm absolutely certain if I ate only beans and coffee every day, it wouldn't take long before I'd develop a bad allergy. I'm sure I'd get bored of it real quick too, but I'd be so hungry that I wouldn't care. My main concern would be my food allergies though.
