I love coffee, but have a really sensitive stomach. I also get reflux problems when I drink coffee. Is there some way I can make coffee that will reduce the acid? I hope so!
Great question. A lot of people have trouble with the amount of acid in coffee.
I believe there are some coffees that have the acid content reduced. But recently I learned about a cold-brewing method that reduces the amount of acid in any coffee by a huge amount.
This means you don't have to seek out low-acid coffees. You can use any coffee beans and still get a low-acid brew.
The brewer you need to use is called the Toddy Cold Brew System. There is no hot water or "brewing" involved. All you use is cold water and ground coffee.
The low-acid coffee it produces is actually a concentrate. You keep this in the fridge, for up to three weeks, and then add some concentrate to a mug and then top it up with water when you're ready for a cup of coffee.
As far as I know, this is the best solution for low-acid coffee. Toddy claims that their method reduces acid in coffee by 67%.
You can learn more and buy your Toddy brewer at Amazon.
