Review: Puroast Low Acid Coffee
Now that I have learned how to control my gastro issues, I am once again worshipping at the shrine of the coffee bean. Since I began working again, I make a small pot daily. But I quickly find myself feeling icky from drinking coffee. So when I learned about Puroast Low Acid Coffee, I was thrilled. It caters to people who have acid issues but love coffee. I was thrilled to get to try it.
My first impression was WOAH, this coffee is strong. I am not a huge fan of french roast coffee, I tend to like a milder blend. Once I got over the initial taste, and adjusted my milk and Splenda accordingly, I started to really enjoy this coffee. While it was fresh and hot, it was pretty delicious.
The problem with this coffee is when I returned to the pot for a second cup. This was probably within 20-30 minutes of brewing, and the heating unit was still on. But the coffee did not taste fresh at all; it almost tasted as if I had reheated coffee from yesterday. It actually tasted more acidic that my normal coffee does. So, I had to throw the rest of the pot out. Because of this, I just cannot tell if this coffee really does allow someone with acid issues to enjoy a pot of coffee.
Perhaps it was the french roast blend; another blend may have better results. I would certainly try another flavor, because as I said, the initial cup was fantastic. If this could be purchased as a resealable container, I may be more likely to purchase it, and make only a cup or two at a time, so as not to waste it. I am not ready to give up on this product just yet.
