What is low acid coffee?

How do you make low acid coffee?

Low acid coffee can be naturally occurring or intentionally created. Certain coffee beans from certain geographical regions have a lower acidic content. This would fall under the naturally occurring classification. Other coffees are treated prior to roasting, or are subject to specific roasting techniques to minimize the acidic content.

Several different types of organic acids exist naturally and are extracted into your cup of coffee. You’ve probably heard of citric acid (think lemons) and acetic acid (vinegar!). The fact is that there are many coffee acids, and they all serve a purpose!

What does coffee acid do? 

Acid in coffee is responsible for the bright, crisp or sharp sensation. It’s the bite that coffee offers. It can be fruity or wine-toned, or citric or something else! Acidity adds a dimension, and coffee without it would be pretty dull.
