Do you love coffee, but cannot handle the acid or caffeine? After weight loss surgery, when you have heartburn, or simply in the evening before bed, a cup of Alex's Low Acid Organic Decaf Coffee™ can be warming and satisfying without causing discomfort!
Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee ™ Fresh Ground Variety Pack includes:
Over 30% of the coffee-drinking public experiences upper gastro-intestinal distress when drinking coffee. These symptoms can manifest as heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, sour stomach, and GERD. The assumption has been that Ph level has much to do with these symptoms. This is misleading and in most cases, incorrect.
There are dozens of different types of acids in coffee. Many of them are beneficial to flavor and are healthy. However, there is a specific acid in coffee that causes upper GI distress. Chlorogenic Acid, specifically CQA 3,4, and 5 has been definitively correlated with stomach problems. Chlorogenic Acids can occur naturally in coffee. Drum roasting can increase these levels significantly.
Over 98% of coffee roasters in this country roast coffee in a drum roaster. We don't. Instead, we've engineered, designed, and manufactured our own coffee roaster that uses patented convection technology to roast coffee. Instead of introducing coffee to a hot drum, we roast our coffee beans in a fluidized bed of hot air. Our coffees never come into contact with hot steel. Our coffees are gently roasted in a stream of very hot air which results in the almost complete removal of Chlorogenic Acid. Then, they are processed using the swiss water technique to remove caffeine, without heavy acids or chemicals. The results are a smooth, flavorful, easy-to-drink coffee that's easy on your stomach.
Skeptical? Good. You should be. If you're one of the many that experience stomach problems with drinking coffee you've probably already researched the topic online and found lots of information, much of it contradictory. Our claims are based on the work of Dr. Taka Shibamoto, a Distinguished Professor of Environmental Toxicology at the UC Davis Coffee Center. Dr. Shibamoto has conducted studies on Chlorogenic Acid in coffees. These studies have determined that elevated levels of Chlorogenic Acid in coffee are major contributors to bitterness in coffee as well as upper GI distress.
Alex's Low Acid French Roast Coffee ™ is a special blend of three highly sought-after beans (50% Chiapas, 25% Nicaragua, 25% Honduras) and is mild, delicate, and balanced. It is perfectly roasted to a medium-leaning dark, almost French, Roast. It is dark enough to have a full body and chocolatey personality, but there is no burnt or bitter taste. Instead, the flavors in these beans are still detectable, and that is a great thing!
Alex's Low Acid Organic Decaf Coffee ™ contains 100% pure Chiapas coffee beans. Grown in southern Mexico, near the border with Guatemala, Chiapas coffee beans have the same characteristics of Guatemalan beans that you would expect from the volcanic soil and high altitude they grow in. They are mild and delicate, with slightly sweet notes of brown sugar and pear. They also have a nutty overtone.
Organically Certified by Organic Certifiers. Our coffee beans from Chiapas, Mexico come from an organic cooperative formed over 20 years ago by 5 tribes of indigenous Mayan Indians concerned about soil degradation, contamination, and erosion. In the 20 years since organic certification, these farmers have accomplished much for their people. They have built a hospital, a school, and a state-of-the-art milling facility to process their coffees. They created a women's center and formed a lending institution to help their entrepreneurs startup. They've stemmed the flow of their young people migrating from their small town to the bigger cities looking for employment. The members of this co-op earn three times what other coffee farmers earn.
Alex's Low Acid Organic Fresh Ground Coffee™ is everything good coffee should be: rich, balanced, bright but not acidic, nutty and aromatic, as well as socially and environmentally conscious.
