Low Acid Coffees

We track the search terms that readers use to find   Recently I noticed quite a few readers looking for information about low acid coffees.  One reader was even trying to find out what acid was added to coffee.

Well, to answer the question, acid is generally not ADDED to coffee.  It occurs naturally and actually provides what Kenneth Davids calls a “sweetly tart spark” that adds a liveliness to coffee.  However, for those of you who seek lower acid options, let me point you to our January 2012 article and reviews of low-acid coffees.

There was one 90+ point option: Brazil Cafe Zinho Esperanza Honey by Water Avenue Coffee.

More recently, in March 2013, we reviewed two other lower acid coffees from TruCup Coffee that earned 85 and 87 points.
