This wiki has been updated 24 times since it was first published in December of 2017. If you suffer from acid reflux, heartburn, ulcers, or sensitive teeth, then regular coffee may be too much for you. Our selection of low acid blends includes a wide assortment of flavor profiles, many with plenty of nutrients and antioxidants and the same energy-boosting properties as regular java, but specifically made to not upset your stomach. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

September 06, 2019:

Coffee is a very personal thing, and rarely will two people agree on which one tastes the best. Since we wanted to ensure our list has something that will appeal to every java drinker, whether your prefer lighter, smoother roasts or something dark and bold, we've included coffees with a wide variety of flavor profiles.

If you fall into the first category, you'll want to take a look at Mommee Coffee, Tieman's Fusion, Puroast House Blend, Healthwise Supremo, and Folgers Simply Smooth. All of these are very easy-drinking options that will appeal to people who prefer a subtler, more mild flavor in their coffee.

Those who fall into the second category and prefer a more intense taste from their morning pick-me-up should consider Lucy Jo's Mellow Belly, Java Planet Colombia Organic, Trader Joe's French Roast, Trücup Bold Roast. These are all full of body and have that bold flavor so many coffee drinkers crave.

Of course, we realize that in many homes, pots of coffee are made from multiple people, who may not necessarily agree on a roast. For those homes, we recommend Cafe Don Pablo Subtle Earth Medium Dark. Though it is called medium dark, it is smooth enough to appeal to those who like a light roast, yet strong enough for those who want a bold flavor, making it the ideal compromise.

On another note, both Healthwise Supremo and Trücup Bold Roast are available in K-cups, so even if you have a Keurig, you can still get a low acid coffee that is easy on the stomach.

Special Honors

Lifeboost Low Acid Made by an environmentally-conscious company with a focus on healthy living, Lifeboost Low Acid is a smart choice for your body and the planet. It is made from shade-grown beans that are allowed to fully mature before harvesting, resulting in a complex flavor with a chocolaty richness and a hint of dark caramel sweetness.

Healthy Bean Semi-Dark A 100% organic option infused with matcha, chia, and rooibos tea, Healthy Bean Semi-Dark is packed with plenty of antioxidants and micronutrients. It should provide your body and brain with a nice kick that makes you feel on top of your game, without the nasty crash that can sometimes accompany other coffees.
