Beans, Roast & Brew Method – The Secret To Making Low Acid Coffee

  • 6
  • March 8, 2017

What is it about coffee that so many people love? Is it the quick burst of energy? That feeling of comfort when you’re holding a warm cup?? A laser focus at work?? For the 30 million people who drink at least one cup a day(1), coffee is an essential and treasured part of their daily lives until the day that it causes stomach, gut or bladder distress.

The villain in this story isn’t the caffeine but the natural acids found in that favorite cup of brew. Like the finest wines, coffee also has very diverse flavor profiles based upon the origin of the beans and how they are roasted. Coffee expert Kenneth Davids says that acid adds a “sweetly tart spark” to a cup of coffee that many people enjoy. But for the acid sensitive consumer, finding a lower acid variety is a must.

Start first with beans grown in Brazil or Guatemala, some of which have been found to be naturally lower in acid (2). Beans grown at lower elevations produce less acidity.

Dark roasting, as opposed to medium roasting, will force more acids out of the bean. Some companies use a proprietary, very slow roasting method while others first steam coffee beans to reduce their waxy outer layer.

If you haven’t tried a cold-brew coffee, you’re in for a treat. It’s easy to make at home and extracts less acid from the coffee than hot-water brewing methods yet still provide a lush and rich flavor profile. Many national coffee chains now offer cold brew options.

There’s another easy way to reduce acid in coffee! Two caplets of Prelief® will reduce up to 97.5% of the acid in a 6oz cup of coffee! Prelief minimizes digestive discomfort caused by acid foods. In addition, each Prelief® caplet deliver about 6.4% of your calcium RDI.

Coffee lovers rejoice! There is a way to enjoy coffee again!

Four Easy Steps:

  1. Buy naturally low acid beans
  2. Use a darker roast, the darker the better!
  3. Use a cold brewing method
  4. Use Prelief

From unbearable pain to active Mom again

Hi,Thank you for talking with me today. I had called to tell you how wonderful your Prelief product is. I have been suffering from bladder pain for years. It started after I had my 1st child and got worse after my 2nd. I have gone to numerous doctors for what I initially thought were recurring bladder infections.


Regards, N.M.

A distressed college student finds normalcy and happiness

Hi there, I have interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as “painful bladder syndrome. ” As a 25 year old man in college, having this painful disease is very distressing not only due to the significant discomfort, but also because it affects my mood, my ability to study and do well on exams, and my willingness to participate in activities and live a full life. My urologist has had me on Elmiron, various antidepressants, pain medications, and more to treat my IC.
