 6. What makes a coffee low acid?   

    • The acidity of the coffee is determined by the soil and elevation where it is grown. Generally speaking , the higher grown the coffee the more acidic the flavor.  An acidic flavor might be described as citrusy and a low acidic flavor might be describe as more earthy.  We do not do any additional processing to  lower the acidity. We only roast naturally low acid coffees for our low acid coffee selections.   

7. What is the pH of your Mellow Belly Low Acid Blend?

  • The pH of our Mellow Belly is approximately 5.6.  A typical cup of coffee has a pH of 4.5 to 5.    Please keep in mind that the pH of your water affects the pH of the coffee. Also, keep in mind pH only tests one aspect of the flavor.    A coffee can have a very smooth feel and not be low acid.

14. DO WE TEST FOR MOLD? quick answer, no.

explanation: We understand there is a concern about mold (mycotoxins) in coffee.The coffee we purchase meets all FDA and USDA Organicregulations.   The FDA will not allow the importation of coffee that is above FDA safety guidelines for mycotoxins.   Our coffee is high grade and Certified Organic and must meet these requirements, as well.
In addition, the high temperatures and air circulation of the roasting process adds an additional level of safety.   Finally, we bag
our coffee in sealed one-way valve bags to allow for the coffee to continue to off-gas but not to allow outside air into the bag.
