    The Remarkable Science Behind Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    The Remarkable Science Behind Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    by Alex Brecher March 07, 2024

    Hey there coffee lovers! Today, we're plunging into the smooth and soothing world of Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee. If you've ever wondered why your coffee sometimes leaves you feeling a bit queasy, it's quite likely due to the acid content. But relax, we're not about to dive into an intense chemistry lesson (well, maybe a mini one).

    Let's talk about acids in coffee for a sec. They're the culprits behind the bitter, sour-ish tang that might be assaulting your taste buds right now. The key villains are chlorogenic acids, plus a little caffeine, which doesn't contribute much to the acidity but can be a not-so-nice trigger for acid reflux.

    The Rescue: Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    So, how does Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee come to the rescue? Simple - by reducing those pesky acids without any of the nasty, synthetic chemicals! You see, they use a special air convection roasting method. Sounds high-tech, huh? This method heats the beans from the inside out, reducing the acidity without using any chemicals.

    What's more, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is roasted to a medium dark French roast. This further decreases the acid content and gives you a delicious chocolatey flavor. Winner!

    Low Acid Coffee Advantages

    What's the point of Low Acid Coffee you might ask. Well, it’s a game-changer if you’ve faced acid reflux or any conditions that call for less acid in your diet. Plus, it just tastes smoother, and who doesn't love a smoother, sweeter cup of coffee without that sour, bitter kick?

    Roasting Process Unveiled

    Now let me fill you in on a little secret. Most coffee producers in the United States use a troublesome drum roaster. The beans get hot through contact with the hot metal through a process called conduction. It’s like roasting marshmallows on a campfire - except this isn't quite so fun. This method preserves acidity in your beans.

    But Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee’s unique coffee roaster doesn't play by those rules. It roasts coffee with patented convection technology. The beans never contact hot metal, so it manages to kiss goodbye to much of that acid content.

    Convection Perks

    Cool side note – Air convection roasting offers some other coffee perks too. It gives you a better flavor, and less roasting time, so the beans keep their authentic taste. And thanks to the way it handles chaff, you avoid that unpleasant ‘burned’ taste. That’s another win for your morning cuppa!

    Decaffeination Process

    Lastly, if you're a decaf fan (or just want to sleep tonight), there’s good news. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee's decaffeination process removes caffeine and sticks to the guidelines in the National Organic Program of The US Department of Agriculture (USDA). They use the Swiss water process for a chemical-free decaffeination process.

    So there we have it, folks - the magical science behind Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee. Now, all this talk about coffee has made me thirsty. Time for a cup, won't you join me?
