Coffee Review - Low Acid Coffee by TruCup Coffee
  • TruCup Coffee

    Seattle, Washington
  • Stuck in the Middle

Roast: Dark Review Date: March 2013
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $13.95/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Lightly scorched cedar dominates in aroma and cup, complicated by dark chocolate, cardamom-like spice and hints of flowers and lemon. Roast-muted acidity. Leanish though smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate moves forward in a simple but sweet finish.

Notes: This coffee has been treated to reduce acids and the acidy sensation that may create gastric discomfort in some people. The acid-reduction procedure is applied to the coffee in its green state, before roasting, and is entirely “natural,” meaning only hot water and steam are used. The acidy sensation is further reduced by a relatively dark roast. TruCup is a Seattle, Washington based roaster that differentiates itself by specializing in low-acid coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Acidity avoiders who enjoy a crisply roasty but gently complex cup.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
