IMHO *three* beans per emoji may be a suitable compromise between iconicity and the idea of a plural.

So will we have a COFFEE BEANS emoji along with a generic BEANS emoji? Supposing that a coffee bean has so peculiar a shape that it cannot represent any other species. But the *two* would be very useful, each one in its domain.
