  • Homemade Low Acid Coffee

    If you don't have bad IC flares and you cannot live without at least that one cup of coffee.... Ronco makes a cold brewed coffee maker (on ebay for about $14). It makes coffee that is 65% less acid and 1/3 less caffeine. I just got mine and tried it this morning. It wasn't as strong as the regular brewed coffee...but certainly was worth it with 65% less acid. I am very pleased with my purchase. Of course, if you have bad flares I wouldn't recommend it, but if you have them under control and just want that one cup of coffee..the Ronco Cold Brew Coffee maker is well worth $14 as opposed to buying the packages of low acid coffee that are like $9.99 for about 8oz. Just wanted to share. The coffee tastes pretty good and is easy on the bladder and stomach.

      Yes I've heard of doing this. A friend of mine soaks the beans in a cold press coffee maker overnight in the fridge. I've read that this takes a large amount of the acid out of the beans.
