Hailing from the coffee capital of Seattle, Washington, trücup uses a natural process to remove acids that can be harmful to the stomach, but leaves in all the flavor, caffeine and aroma. trücup comes in a variety of roasts, so no matter how you like your coffee, you can find one that’s trüe for you.
One big reason to love trücup: it’s low acid. Using a natural process, they remove acids that can be harmful to the stomach, but leave in all the flavor, caffeine and aroma. But what does it mean to be a “low-acid coffee?” Here’s a brief overview of acid, for those of us who might have been thinking about other things during high school chemistry class:
Acid levels are all about pH, which stands for “potential of hydrogen” and is a measure of the hydrogen ion concentration present in a solution. Acid is measured on a scale of 0-14. Solutions that have a pH of less than seven are considered “acidic” and those with a pH level of greater than seven are considered “basic.” Water sits in the middle with a score of 7 and is considered neutral, neither acidic nor basic. Anything containing acid—which is just about everything you eat or drink—affects your pH level. And the higher the pH level, the lower the acid. Got it?
According to the test results, trücup Born To Be Mild (Light Roast) clocked in at an impressive 5.74 pH level—making it 60% less acidic than light roasts from some of the leading national coffee brands. Plus, all other trücup roasts have a higher pH than Born To Be Mild—which means they are even lower in acid. Drinkable and delicious, trücup can be a great low-acid option for coffee lovers with sensitive stomachs who suffer from GERD or heartburn.
Light and lovely like an acoustic guitar ballad, Born To Be Mild is the choice for those who are looking for a gentler cup of joe. The low-acid coffee has a delicate sweetness with just enough body for balance.
Moderate and mellow, Stuck In The Middle is a medium blend low-acid coffee that has plenty of taste, but isn’t too strong. Smooth and perfectly balanced, it’s the rhythm guitar of the roasts.
Heart Of Bold is perfect for people wanting a full-body, low-acid coffee blend packed with flavor. Rugged and resolute like a wicked baseline, it’s roasted deep enough to unlock the blend’s full character.
Daring and dangerous, Dark As Night is an exceptional French roast low-acid coffee for those who want to experience a delicious dark side. It’s thick and lush with incredible body, and just a hint of smoke. Kinda like hanging out with the band in the back of the tour bus.
In 2011, the founders of trücup noticed there was a gap in the coffee market. Even with the multitude of options they had in the Pacific Northwest, coffee came in pretty much only two choices: regular and decaf. So, they introduced low-acid trücup to the world… a whole new category of coffee.
How do they make trücup both drinkable and delicious? First, they select a premium blend of coffee beans from all over the world. Then, using a proprietary, natural process, they remove acids that can be harmful to your stomach and that create a bitter taste – but leave in all the flavor, aroma and caffeine.
trücup can be a great option if you suffer from heartburn or other stomach issues that are irritated by coffee. Or if you just want to enjoy a great-tasting coffee that’s smooth and satisfying.
While trücup is low on acid, the founders are high on fun: all of five different roasts are inspired by classic rock songs. So whether you like your coffee light like an acoustic guitar or strong like a drum solo, you’re sure to find a coffee that rocks.
