Simpatico Coffee Co. owner Alex Fink told the Holland Sentinel that he filed paperwork with the U.S Food and Drug Administration to be able to market three of the roaster’s coffees as “low acid,” which is believed by some to prevent an increase of gastric acid in the stomach. The three coffees were tested by the Food Science Department at Michigan State University.
Low acid coffees begin with the bean, not the roasting process, Fink told the paper. “You have to find the right kind of bean,” he said. “You have to find farmers that prepare it a certain way.”
