Drink Low Acid Coffee

August 01, 2019

Low-acid coffee has become increasingly popular over the last few years as more and more coffee drinkers experience side effects from the acidity in their daily cup of coffee. Coffee naturally contains acid, but various factors from growing conditions to roasting techniques can alter the acidity levels in coffee beans. If your daily cup of coffee has been causing you some pains, don't dump it down the drain, we'll explain why low-acid coffee will be your new favorite brew!

You may be wondering why you experience acid reflux or stomach pains after drinking your daily cup of coffee. For many, the acid in coffee can irritate the stomach and esophagus which can lead to acid reflux or stomach pains. Various factors including origin, variety, processing method, exposure to additives and pesticides, and climate can play a role in the acidity levels of coffee beans.

Don’t worry, if your morning cup gives you some stomach pains you have several ways you can still enjoy a delicious low-acid cup of coffee. A study published in 2010 showed that dark roast coffee is less acidic due to losing some of the acidity and caffeine in the long roasting process. On the other hand, lighter roasts tend to be more acidic. Opting for cold brew coffee will also offer your stomach some relief. Through the cold brew process, some of the acidity in the coffee beans is naturally removed leaving you with a smooth cup of coffee with little acidity. Lastly, the best way to ensure that you will enjoy every drop of your morning cup of coffee is to make the switch to a low-acid brand of coffee.
