How to Find Low-Acid K-Cup Coffee
Have you been told to avoid caffeine for one reason or another? Perhaps with age, you’ve become more sensitive to the naturally-occurring acids present in coffee. Unfortunately, it’s often these very same acids that give particular beans and blends their unique flavor. But don’t despair! There’s such a thing as low-acid K-Cup coffee and it tastes just as good as the average blend.
Café Don Pedro wants you to know that all of their low-acid K-Cup beans and blends are roasted with the same artisanal quality and care of all the beans they carry. If you’re new to the low-acid coffee game you might have some questions about how to find your favorite blend, so we’ve collected some insight for you below.
Why Type of Naturally-Occurring Coffee Acids Affect the Stomach?
Before getting ahead of ourselves, let’s first take a look at some of the naturally-occurring acids present in the average cup of coffee. Some of the most common ones include citric acid, which often gives lighter blends their fruity taste. Phosphoric acid is also quite common but has a sweeter taste. If you find your cup of morning blend boasts hints of mango or grapefruit, it likely has a bit of phosphoric acid in it.
The Benefits of Low-Acid K-Cup Coffee
One of the foremost advantages of low-acid, K-Cup coffee, aside from how easy it is to brew, is the health benefits. Master roasters are able to create beans and blends that are reduced in naturally-occurring acid but still loaded with the same healthy minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants in your average morning cup of joe. Just because you buy low-acid beans, it doesn’t mean you compromise on quality, so all you coffee connoisseurs out there needn’t worry.
Finding a Quality Low-Acid K-Cup Coffee
Although low-acid coffees don’t go flying off of the shelves these days, many stores and coffee shops do carry a variety of low-acid K-Cup beans and blends, you simply need to know what to look for. Some of the more common low-acid blends include dark roasts, such as Sumatran and French Roast. This is because they have a compound that helps reduce naturally-occurring acids in the beans. Blends and beans with less caffeine are also more likely to be less acidic.
