    Top Six Reasons to Drink Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee

    Top Six Reasons to Drink Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee

    by Alex Brecher January 11, 2023

    There are a lot of coffee brands on the market, but they are definitely not the same. Though it can be hard to choose from so many brands, there are many factors you can look at to guide you to choosing the best one for yourself. Here are six top reasons to drink Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee.

  • Taste
  • The only coffee worth drinking is coffee that tastes amazing. Take one sip of Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, and you will have your first reason for drinking it. Since it is low-acid, the taste is smoother, without a sour or bitter aftertaste that is common when drinking higher-acid coffees. 

    In addition, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is made up of blends of the finest coffee beans from some of the best-known coffee-growing regions around the world. Regular, Decaf, and Half Caff Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee includes beans from the Chiapas region of Mexico, as well as from Nicaragua and Honduras. Flavors include hazelnuts, vanilla, and mild fruitiness, with a citrus overtone. 

    The Rise and Shine Blend has beans from Sumatra and Chiapas. The flavor profile includes vanilla bean and white pepper. It is earthy and intense, just the perfect thing for greeting a new day.

  • Gentle on the Stomach
  • Coffee is a naturally acidic beverage. Some people are advised to be on a low-acid diet due to various health conditions, such as the following.

    • Frequent heartburn or GERD - acid from the stomach can get into the esophagus, causing heartburn or acid reflux. Some people on a GERD diet limit acid consumption.
    • Ulcers - acid can irritate ulcers, which include damage to the stomach lining, and make them feel worse. 
    • Bariatric surgery - patients are often advised to avoid acidic foods and beverages to allow their surgery to heal.
    • Colitis and crohn’s disease - damage to the lining of the intestine can be irritated and painful upon contact with acid.

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is gentler on the stomach. We use air convection to roast the coffee beans instead of allowing them to touch steel drums. That way, acid content stays lower.

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is lower in acid than the average of many national brands. We can be sure of this because an independent lab tested Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee and other brands, such as Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Trader Joe’s, Folger’s. 

    Be sure to talk to your doctor if you have any of these health conditions or if you are unsure about which coffee is best for you to drink.

  • Certified Organic
  • Conventional farming practices are developed to maximize crop growth at what sometimes seems like at any cost to the environment or human health. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is certified organic by the USDA, which means it meets the rigorous standards of the USDA’s National Organic Program. 

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is free from a long list of synthetic pesticides, fungicides, and other synthetic chemicals that may have toxic effects in people, humans, or ecosystems. Certified organic coffee beans must be produced in soil that has been free from these same chemicals for at least three years before planting. From before planting through harvesting, processing, and packaging, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is sure to be kept free from chemicals.

  • Free from Contaminants
  • Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee isn’t just free from non-organic chemicals. It is also free from contaminants. Many coffee beans have mold and mycotoxins, or toxic chemicals that molds produce. It is possible that these compounds are harmful to human health, whether you are exposed over time or just a few times. However, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee has been tested and is guaranteed to be free from mold and mycotoxins. It is also free from heavy metals, which can accumulate in body tissues over time.

  • Perfect Roast
  • Roasting coffee allows the natural flavors to shine through as the oils are extracted. Too much roasting can mute the natural flavors of the coffee beans, while not enough roasting may not allow for optimal extraction.

    Regular, Decaf, and Half Caff versions of Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee are roasted to a Dark French Roast. You will be able to taste the subtle flavors of the coffee beans, as well as the chocolatey flavor that this roast gives to them.

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee Rise and Shine has a slightly lighter Medium Dark Italian Roast. The flavors of the coffee beans may be a bit brighter, and you might detect a slight chocolatey flavor. Italian Roast beans are also known for having a caramel flavor. See which flavors you can taste when you sip your first cup!

  • Selection
  • The selection of Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee makes it a great choice. It comes in Regular, Decaf, and Half Caff, so you can have a burst of energy, a comforting after-dinner cup, or something in between. Rise and Shine is specifically designed for a morning boost. 

    Since Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee comes in a variety of forms, including Whole Bean, Fresh Ground, and K-Cups, you can always make your own. That means you don’t have to go to a coffee shop every time you want a cup of coffee, andthat means a few things.

    1. You can make your coffee your way. If you are on a special diet, such as dairy-free, you can avoid dairy and instead use almond milk or oat milk. If you want extra cream, go right ahead. Or if you prefer sugar-free syrup or a low-calorie sweetener, it’s your choice.
    2. You can save money. We all know the cost of a cup of coffee. Making it yourself at home lets you save dollars every cup.
    3. You can save time. Your coffee can be ready right where you are, whenever you want it. 

    With so many brands to choose from, it may seem hard to pick just one. However, there are many reasons to choose Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee. Taste, quality, and being gentle on the stomach are just a few. Give it a try and discover for yourself the reasons to drink Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee.
