If you’re hooked to your morning cup of coffee but recently it’s been leaving you with less-than-pleasant acid reflux as a result, you might be after a low acid coffee to replace it. Keep reading to discover more. 

What is low acid coffee?

As a fun rule of thumb, low acid coffee has generally been grown at low altitudes or where the beans have been treated to have some of their acidity reduced. This process usually involved the beans being roasted uninterrupted at a lower temperature for longer.

Cold brewing your own favourite coffee at home reduces its acidity too!

Is low acid coffee better for you?

Whilst low acid coffee might not hold any health benefits greater than a regular cup, if you suffer from acid reflux, switching to coffee that’s lower in acidity will hopefully ease these symptoms of discomfort.  

Is there a low acid decaf coffee?

Yes! Using the same processes as caffeinated coffees, you can get a cup of low acid decaf too.
