Low acid trücup coffee for the holidays

Low acid trücup coffee for the holidays

The creators of trücup coffee are clever. Besides using a natural process in removing acids that can be harmful to coffee drinkers stomach, they named their roasts after memorable rock songs.

Pouring a hot and steamy pot of trücup coffee into a cup, one notices it’s smooth and pleasing aroma. After a sip or two, this full flavor coffee offers a kick of caffeine.

Acid is measured on a scale of 0-14. The higher the pH in a solution, the lower acidic. Less than 7 is considered “acidic” and those with a pH level of greater than 7 are considered “basic.” Water sits in the middle with a score of 7 and is considered neutral, neither acidic nor basic.

Here are some of their most popular roasts:
Born to be Mild is a medium blend low-acid coffee was named after “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf. This song was made famous by the 1969 movie “Easy Rider,” starring Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson  to match its smooth and balanced flavor.

“Stuck in the Middle” is named after a classic song “Stuck in the Middle With You” by the Scottish band Stealers Wheel made in 1973.  ‘Stuck in the Middle’ coffee is a medium blend, low-acid coffee that has plenty of taste, but isn’t too strong.

“Heart of Gold” by Neil Young
Neil Young sang his only number one single in the U.S., in 1972. Since Young is quite a character, The ‘Heart of Bold’ coffee is roasted deep enough to unlock the blend’s full character.

“Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen is one of Springsteen’s number 1 hits on his “Born in the USA” album. “Dark as Night’ is an exceptional French roast, low-acid coffee that is ideal for those who want to experience a delicious dark side with a hint of smoke.

“You’ve Got a Friend” by Carol King & James Taylor
King won a Grammy for this song in 1971 and it was also a number one hit for Taylor in the same year. Fun Fact: When asked if they wanted to sing it together, they said “let’s duet!” ‘You’ve Got a Blend’ is a smooth and sultry espresso blend that’s easy to drink.

It’s So Easy by Linda Rondstadt
A success in several different decades and genres, Rondstadt covered this Buddy Holly song in 1977. It’s the perfect song for a single-serve cup, because there is no pouring grounds into filters. Single-serve pods can be dropped into compatible single-serve machines for coffee in a minute.

The best part of trücup coffee is it’s an ideal low-acid option for coffee lovers with sensitive stomachs who suffer from GERD or heartburn. Give a bag or the single-serve cup varieties during the holidays. The single-serve cups are biodegradable and compatible with most single-serve machines.
