Coffee actually has acid in it…
Not to worry though, many foods have acid in them. Oranges and other citrus fruit, for example, have citric acid.
That’s just one example. Just because a food or beverage has acid doesn’t mean it’s bad or dangerous.
But if you’re anything like me, sometimes your stomach can hurt after drinking coffee!
Not everyone is like me though, and I sure hope that your stomach never hurts after drinking coffee!
Without trying to make this all about me, I have recently gone through an extremely painful and a long bout of gastroesophageal acid reflux. It affected my stomach and my throat, and took weeks to get over the pain.
Just to be clear, it wasn’t from drinking coffee. It was from stress.
And coffee isn’t dangerous to drink.
But if you do have acid reflux or other conditions that coffee can affect, you should be mindful of that and how to properly handle it.
I like low acid coffee for multiple reasons. For one thing, I don’t like the taste of more acidic coffee as much. It’s not a flavor I enjoy as much. Also, I don’t like that it can upset my stomach.
So I want to share with you an amazing coffee brand that makes low acid, high quality and delicious coffee.
I’ll be honest, this coffee comes with a price tag! But you can at least look into it if you’re interested in discovering an amazing coffee.
If you struggle at all with acid reflux and love coffee, or you just want a superb tasting coffee that is low acid and otherwise very healthy and top quality, check this one out.
Well, What Is It!?
It’s a coffee company called Lifeboost.
Not only is it low acid, but it has almost every other quality and health factor you can think of.
Their coffee is fair trade, GMO free, shade grown, single origin, 3rd party tested for mycotoxins, and pesticide free. This coffee meets all the highest standards for quality control.
The pH level of their coffee is higher than most other coffees. The pH level is the indication of how acidic or basic a water based solution is.
pH levels range from zero to 14, with zero being highly acidic and 14 indicating a base.
Water has a pH level of 7, it’s totally neutral. Most coffee has a pH level of about 4.85 or lower. Lifeboost’s coffee has a pH level of 6 or higher. That’s almost the pH level of water!
So in terms of the actual acidity and pH level, this coffee is proven to be low on acidity on the pH scale. So if you have any health issues or are just looking for a coffee with low acidity, Lifeboost is great in that sense.
This is the most important point, just next to the fact that it’s low acid!
Lifeboost coffee tastes very nice.
We all know, unfortunately, that sometimes the healthier option for food or drink doesn’t quite taste as good.
Not so with Lifeboost! The first time I opened the bag and tried it, I used AeroPress to brew it. I was pretty amazed at the taste.
If the health factor isn’t a big deal for you (and you don’t mind a huge price tag), get Lifeboost coffee just for the taste!
The aroma is buttery and sweet, slightly floral and tangy.
The taste is amazingly smooth and well-balanced. Coffee that is well-balanced is in my opinion the absolute best kind of coffee.
It’s buttery, bold but so smooth, slightly sweet and fruity with a nutty undertone. It’s a rich but wonderfully clean and clear cup of coffee.
The body and the texture of it on the tongue is great.
There’s also a fresh but roasty, carmelly aftertaste that made me not even want a mint, a drink of water or anything else to clear my palate!
The aftertaste is outstanding and this is the only coffee I’ve tried where I wanted the aftertaste to linger on my tongue and didn’t want anything to wash it out.
The overall profile of this coffee is like no other.
When I took the first sip, I realized that even though this is a $30 coffee, it has the taste of a $30 coffee.
I have tried other brewing methods with it and Lifeboost tastes great with any of them, but in my opinion, Lifeboost coffee made with AeroPress is like a match made in heaven.
A Great Return Policy
As delicious as their coffee is, they still have a super generous return policy.
You can actually return the coffee within 30 days of purchase and they’ll even pay for the shipping!
One of the ways to spot a solid, reputable product, business or seller is with by their refund/return policy. Lifeboost has a 30-day return policy for coffee.
That tells me something… they are convinced about the quality of their product.
I like what they write on the website, that you can get a refund and they’ll pay the cost of shipping if you’re unhappy.
After trying the coffee myself, I can also pretty confidently say you won’t be disappointed with it.
See What You Think
It’s true that this coffee is expensive.
And honestly, even after what I’ve written, it’s a very high price tag for any coffee, no matter how it tastes.
It’s a coffee that I’ve only purchased once, and even though it’s a fine coffee, I think it’s hard for not only myself but for many people to justify consistently buying a $30, 12oz bag of coffee.
Everything has its pros and cons, and for Lifeboost coffee, the major con is the price tag.
If you’re looking for a coffee that’s low acid, delicious, healthy, fair trade and all around high quality, I can recommend it.
But even so, I’m sure there are plenty of other low acid coffees that also taste great with a lower price than this one.
Their website has much more information about their coffee and lots of great reviews. Feel free to give it a look. I hope that it you try this coffee, you’ll love it as much as I do!
I hope this article was helpful for you. I also hope that if you have acid reflux or any other condition with your stomach or GI, that this coffee will be a great solution for you. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them in the comments section. Coffee Cheers!
