Is there a safe way to drink coffee for people with high blood pressure, stomach acid and gout?

I dunno about the high blood pressure, but one great small tip I was given:

Put a pinch of BAKING SODA in your cup of coffee to neutralize the acidity.

MIGHT potentially serve well for the stomach acid and gout, though is just a great trick anyways to balance out the natural acidity of coffee with some alkaline. (I often find it "smoothens" the taste as well.)


Yes, there are so many ways and solutions for that problem. First is to choose for alternative coffee or some organically made coffee powder like over-fried and grounded corn seeds which is very delicious and aromatic. That's for some high-blood consumers. The other one, about stomach acid and gout, always add less sugar to your coffee or dairy ingredients like milk. Sucrose adds acidity to your coffee and will most likely irritate your stomach after few sips. Hope that helps!


There is.

It's called moderation.

Very important.

Coffee and smoke is not a valid breakfasf.

If you treat your gut right, it will not give you reflux after drinking some coffee.

You high blood pressure is also very unlikely to give you hard time, as long as you don't abuse coffee.

Coffee only rises your blood pressure temporarly and have no long time effects, hence mentioned above moderation is the key.

Gout as far as I'm aware is unrelated to coffee consumption.


how to enjoy coffee without fear of the effects of caffeine:

1. Reduce the dose of coffee powder

Basically, the more coffee powder dissolved into water, the higher the possibility of caffeine content. If you usually need 1 teaspoon - coffee for 177 milliliters of water, try reducing the dose and keep experimenting with the coffee ratio by using a consistent amount of water to find the right taste.

2. Choose Arabica coffee

Compared to Robusta, Arabica coffee beans generally contain 1 percent caffeine. Buy coffee beans that are 100 percent Arabica and not cross-regional. Not only does reducing caffeine intake dramatically, the taste produced will also be better.

3. Adjust the thickness of the coffee powder

Smooth or rough ground coffee beans affect the caffeine content in a cup of coffee. The finer the grinder the more caffeine is produced. So if you make your own coffee at home with any steaming techniques, try to grind a little more roughly than usual. But don't be too rude, because this will make the coffee taste bad.

4. Select the profile of the dark roasted coffee

Choose coffee beans with dark roast roaster results rather than light roasts, because of their lower acidity. Dark coffee beans spend more time when roasted than light.

5. Change the brew method

According to research conducted by Bunker and McWilliams in 1979, espresso contains the least amount of caffeine, about 100 milligrams to 60 milliliters. While coffee is brewed with the French press technique containing 107.5 milligrams in 200 milliliters and brewing drops of 145 milligrams in the same size.

6. The longer the coffee is extracted with water, the higher the caffeine

Tips, order espresso and mix with hot water to get black coffee with the ideal caffeine, about 50-64 milligrams with a coffee size of 150 milliliters.

7. Switch to cold brew

This cold brew technique does not extract coffee at all with hot water, but uses cold water for at least 8 hours at room temperature. Unlike the ice coffee that was previously brewed with hot water and then filled with ice. Cold brew is also more practical because it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks from being brewed.

This cold brewing technique produces 30 percent less caffeine than most brewing techniques. The coffee produced also contains low acid, even the number reaches 67 percent less than hot coffee.
