    GERD + Coffee: How to Enjoy Your Cup of Joe Again

    GERD + Coffee: How to Enjoy Your Cup of Joe Again

    by Alex Brecher January 30, 2024

    If your love affair with coffee has been marred by the discomfort of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), you’re not alone. Many coffee enthusiasts have had to make difficult choices due to this widespread health issue. But what if we told you that you don't have to give up your beloved brew after all? The solution may lie in low acid coffee, specifically, Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee.

    Coffee and GERD: The Challenge

    Coffee is known and loved for its rich, robust and sharp taste, particularly its acidity, which lends to its unique flavor. However, for those dealing with GERD, this acidity can exacerbate uncomfortable and painful symptoms. GERD is a condition that weakens the lower esophageal sphincter – the valve-like muscle that keeps stomach acid from backing up into your esophagus. The enhanced acidity levels of regular coffee can irritate the esophagus, leading to heartburn, and worse, damaging the esophagus lining over time, if consumed regularly.

    The Answer: Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    If you’re asking, "Do I give up coffee?" The answer is an emphatic "No!" Enter: Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee, which comes as a lifesaver for GERD sufferers and coffee connoisseurs alike.

    Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee is specially processed to reduce harmful acids naturally, by as much as 75% compared to conventional coffees, drastically reducing the risk of stomach irritation and acid reflux. This allows those with sensitive stomachs and GERD to enjoy their cup of Joe again without worry.

    Moreover, this brand prides itself on being not only low in acid but also organic and fair trade. So you’re not just gaining the advantage of less acidity, but you’re also getting high-quality, environmentally-friendly coffee that supports fair wages for coffee farmers around the world.

    The Different Varieties: A Blend for Everyone

    Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee provides a variety of options, ensuring there’s a low acid blend for every coffee lover in every form you could wish for, from whole beans, ground coffee to K-cups.

    French Roast

    Dark and bold, the French Roast offers a rich, smoky flavor with less acidity. It's available in both whole beans and freshly ground depending on your preference, and even comes in 5lb bags for the coffee connoisseur.


    Alex's Decaf variety offers the same richness of flavor but without the caffeine. It's perfect for those sensitive to caffeine but who still want to enjoy a robust cup of coffee. Just like the French Roast, it's available in whole beans, fresh ground and 5lb bags, to fit your personal taste and need.

    Rise and Shine

    The Rise and Shine blend is a vibrant medium-dark roast, promising a balanced flavor that gives a perfect start to your morning, but with much less acidity. The variety is available in whole beans, fresh ground, and also in the larger 5lb pack.

    Half Caff

    Combining the best of both worlds, the Half Caff blend offers half the caffeine with 100% of the flavor, perfect for those wanting to limit their caffeine intake but not the taste. You'll find this blend is available in whole beans, fresh ground, and further still, in the 5lb format.


    If convenience is at the top of your list or you are simply a fan of Keurig machines, these blends are also available in K-Cup formats, including French Roast, Decaf, Rise and Shine, and Half Caff, all maintaining their low acid figures.

    Variety Packs

    Lastly, if you prefer a bit of everything or are unsure where to start, their variety packs come in both K-Cups and whole beans/freshly ground 5lb bags. The 5lb bag variety pack also comes in two options - Perfectly Prepared Host and Ultimate Bag Variety - giving you a wide range of flavors to choose from.

    Savor all these unique blends from Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee and choose your favorite way to drink a comforting, flavorful, and reinforcing cup of coffee without the concern of exacerbating your GERD symptoms. Enjoy your coffee to the fullest - your sensitive stomach can thank you later!
