Need a low-acid coffee? Here's the fix

Where can I buy low-acid coffee? 

For some people, that first cup of morning brew comes with bad consequences — it can upset your stomach, contribute to acid reflex and heartburn, and make you feel generally uncomfortable. The main reason behind this? Acidity.

The various acids found in coffee contribute to its overall taste, but it can make you feel sick — especially on an empty stomach. The acids can irritate your stomach lining and make you feel nauseous. 

If you're one of these people, you might be thinking that your only option is to cut out coffee altogether to avoid these feelings of discomfort — but don't worry, you don't have to. It might all come down to coffee roast. Darker roasts, in general, have lower acid levels (cold brew coffee also has lower acid because of the way it's made). 

So where can you buy a low-acid coffee? Put down the Tums and pick up some Death Wish Coffee instead

Death Wish is a strong, high-caffeine coffee with low acidity, meaning you'll get the absolute smoothest, never bitter taste every time. One of the major feats behind our blend is how we manage to offer such a deep, dark roast without any of the bitter taste or acidity you experience with other dark roasts. 

But what makes it low in acid compared to other coffee brands? It comes down to how we make our coffee

We use a perfect blend of Arabica and Robusta beans and a slow roasting process that gives us the world's strongest coffee — without being bitter or acidic. 

There are some other things to keep in mind if you're feeling discomfort. If you're more prone to experiencing nausea, heartburn, and other stomach issues when you drink coffee, try: 

  • Refraining from drinking coffee on an empty stomach
  • Drink as much water as you do coffee, and then some
  • Avoid artificial and zero-calorie sweetners
