What Is Low Acid Coffee?
Low acid coffee is coffee that is low in Chlorogenic acid. For more about Chlorogenic acid please see our post here. Coffee contains very high levels of this organic acid compound, and it is associated with stomach irritation, pain, heartburn, reflux and other sensitivities among many coffee drinkers.
Finding Low Acid Coffee Can Be Difficult!
Consider that there are over 1,600 coffee roasters in the United States. I have found less than 20 low acid coffees roasters on the internet. That means less than .01% of coffee roasters concern themselves with producing coffee with less acid. Coupled with the ubiquity of national coffee chains on every street corner, the probability is near 100% that the coffee you are drinking is very high in acid.

- Customer Feedback
- Scientific Data
- Lab Tests
I have received a lot of feedback about my customers experience with national coffee brands, regional roasters, and other purveyors of coffee. Please see our verified reviews that are collected by a independent third party. The reviews section can be found by selecting the little blue tab on the left side of each page that says "Reviews". You can also find the reviews by clicking on the 5 star badge at the bottom of each page.
We have tested coffees beans from some of the most popular national coffee chains in the United States and from all the known low acid coffee companies (see article). The independent lab analysis verifies my experience, the experience of our customers, and the findings of the scientific journal.
Low Acid Coffee Designations:
We have developed a series of badges to indicate the level of reduction in Chlorogenic acid in our coffees compared to the national coffee chains. Since most people have experience with these national coffee brands, we found it to be the most helpful to establish a standard to measure against. We express the reduction in acid as a percentage, since most people are unfamiliar with the PH scale. The analytical reports documenting the PH levels for our coffees can be found on our certifications page.
Here are the designations / badges that you will find associated with our coffees:
