  1. Cold brewed coffee is much less acidic. It’s easier to make (drain the finished product) from a cold-brew toddy, but any clean container will work:
    Use about 12 ounces freshly ground coffee with about 7 or 8 cups cold water. Make sure all of the grounds are in the water.
    Cover, let sit at room temperature for 12–24 hours depending upon desired concentration (strength). Strain out the grounds; store the coffee concentrate in the refrigerator. Add hot water to make coffee, use in milkshakes, frappes, etc.

  2. Take an anti acid afterwards because acid reflux is caused by GERD and yes coffee spicy food triggers that but I’ve never had to give up any of those heck are you ghost peppers and I have acid reflux but the trick is taken anti-acid right after you could even go as far as putting baking soda in your coffee but don’t do that it’s actually nasty just taking anti acid

  3. Unless you identify coffee as a particular trigger for you, there’s no need to avoid it. There have been many research papers written on this but this study fro 2013 found No Association of Coffee Consumption with Gastric Ulcer, Duodenal Ulcer, Reflux Esophagitis, and Non-Erosive Reflux Disease: A Cross-Sectional Study of 8,013 Healthy Subjects in Japan
    There is a lot of rubbish spoken about foods and drink you must avoid but how we eat is more important than what we eat in respect of acid and reflux.

  4. A2A: It’s not clear from the medical literature whether the acid or the caffeine in coffee is the trigger for GERD or acid reflux in people who show such sensitivities. It could also be other coffee components or some combination of these.
    In any case, what is likely happening is that the guilty components irritate the esophagus or weaken the lower esophageal sphincter. The LES is the muscle which prevents the backward flow of stomach contents, including the highly corrosive stomach acid, into the esophagus where it causes GERD.
    Given the ambiguity about the casual agents and the variability from person to person, your best bet is to try a few experiments on yourself. See if decaf coffee reduces your post-java GERD. If it does, you can either switch to decaf or blend it with a little high test to get your coffee jolt.
    Or try low-acid coffee, either the stuff sold as low acid or by switching to cold brew as others have suggested.
    If you’re drinking dark roast, which generally has lower caffeine, try a light roast. It could be other components produced in extended roasting that trigger your GERD.
    Sorry that there is no pat answer here, but that’s often the case in human physiology.
    And if you have serious or frequent GERD, by all means see a doctor, preferably a gastroenterologist. GERD can lead to Barrett’s esophagus which in turn can trigger esophageal cancer. You don’t want to go there. (Note that I am not a medical professional and my comments should not replace a doctor’s advice.)

  5. If you go to a gastroenterologist complaining of acid reflux, they will tell you to cut out caffeine, along with chocolate, spicy food, and tobacco. From a practical standpoint, I’m totally addicted to caffeine and can’t imagine my life without it. If you can manage, switch to decaf. If not, start with calcium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate antacids taken before and after you drink your coffee. Either mix up the baking powder in your kitchen with some water, or take tums or some other antacid. If that doesn’t work, then you need to see a doctor and get a prescription for a PPI antacid.

  6. The process was then repeated a week later with participants drinking the other beverage. During this time, standard meals were provided and reflux medication was discontinued.
    The investigators found that coffee had no significant effect on esophageal activity except when consumed on an empty stomach by people with reflux disease.
    The study’s lead researcher emphasizes another factor in reflux. It’s important for people to know that meals consumed during our study induced much more reflux than the coffee did,.

  7. Cold brew coffee has a lower amount of caffeine and may be less acidic, which might make it a more acceptable choice for those with GERD or heartburn.

  8. Cold brew coffee has a lower amount of caffeine and may be less acidic, which might make it a more acceptable choice for those with GERD or heartburn. Baking soda helps neutralize some of the naturally occurring acid in the coffee. As little as a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda for a pot of coffee can smooth the harsh flavor of inexpensive coffee and make it easier to digest.

  9. It may be useful to avoid some specific foods, but it’s also possible that you only see a small reduction in your symptoms. If you’re overweight, then losing some weight can really help to reduce symptoms such as acid reflux. As well as this, if you drink or smoke, it’s best to either cut down or try to stop. If this doesn’t work, then avoid wearing tight clothing or bending forwards as this puts pressure on your stomach and increases the likelihood of experiencing symptoms.

  10. You may have seen cold brew coffee at your favorite chain, as it’s becoming more and more popular with coffee drinkers.
    It produces coffee with a more rounded, less bitter taste, and it’s also favored by many people who have problems with acid reflux or other digestive issues.
    Cold brewing is able to effectively neutralize the acid in coffee because it uses cold rather than hot water to extract flavor from beans.

  11. Most importantly, speak to a healthcare professional, GENT or PCP to get a real answer.
    I’m not sure if there is a way to drink coffee if it is a trigger to acid reflux. I do know that reflux can be worse at particular times of the day for some people with the condition. If you aim to drink it to coincide with times that aren’t particularly bad for you, it may help.
    It would also help to just reduce the amount of coffee. Less acid, less of the reflux.
    None of this is professional advice, and just information I have gathered from friends who suffer from GERD/reflux. Check with a doctor.
