I am drinking a generic medium roast and I am on cup No. 2 and it is upsetting my stomach now.

My stomach complains way more when having medium or light roast coffee. Weak coffee is just murder in terms of acidity for some reason. 13.gif

I just had some Brazilian pea berry that I hand roast with a old popcorn skillet over a propane flame. Burr grind then press it. So good I drink it black.

I like buying unroasted beans since the shelf life is years once roasted its only fresh for about 10 days un vacuumed sealed.

I think it totally depends on the brand and roast, we just happened to find an excellent french roast that's delicious and doesn't cause stomach problems. thumbsup.gif

Maybe I should stop buying generic and buy a specific type bean...what exactly is French roast...which type of bean or bean mix?

I had some black tea on an empty stomach a couple days ago and got nauseated. We always buy espresso as the beans are higher quality and the acid is lower with a dark roast, as opposed to a medium roast.
I'm to the point where I can barely stand brewed med. roast coffee.

You may have something there, because recently I met a friend for coffee and I had a latte made with espresso beans and I didn't have any stomach problems, but I did have a homemade cheese scone with it - so maybe food helps to absorb the acid?

I have always avoided buying espresso because of the thought (perhaps wrong) that it is stronger, therefore more acidy. I will experiment with grinding my own espresso beans and brewing a batch in my French press.

Apparently acidity decreases the higher temperature is used for roasting.


240 °C (464 °F) French Roast
Dark brown, shiny with oil, burnt undertones, acidity diminished. At the end of second crack. Roast character is dominant, none of the inherent aroma or flavors of the coffee remain.

245 °C (473 °F) Italian Roast
Very dark brown and shiny, burnt tones become more distinct, acidity almost gone, thin body.

It's oddly quite the opposite, dark roasting actually removes more acid. Octo and I were given some cheap coffee that was very acidic, we put it on a pan and tried roasting it darker in the oven...
We opened the oven door and it smelled like we were cooking muriatic acid damned.gif
Cleared the kitchen out quickly.

my brother is a barista and is now a coffee roaster, thats a specialised job now.. so he over seas all the roasting for the best coffee house in OZ, its a precise thing, a whole batch can be ruined by roasting it 5 seconds too long..
