Can You Handle All Coffee?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I started reading a lot on good quality single sourced beans and using a French press to keep the flavor etc and started buying higher end coffee...only to realize that my stomach does not handle it well! Seems only weaker coffee sits ok with me. Folgers Simply Smooth seems to be fine and other just lower end coffee brands.

 

Has anyone else had this experience? I LOVE the flavor of the really well made stuff (with supposedly less mold and toxins that can be irritable to the gut) However I seem to be the exact opposite, the stronger stuff is the irritant to my gut and the Folgers of the world coffee selection sit just fine...I'm wondering if other Celiacs have had a similar experience?

Thanks!

Sorry,I can only report that I love all kinds of coffee and happily, coffee loves me. I drink mine with cream and a teeny bit of sugar. Nothing flavored. No "coffee house jazzy stuff like half-caf mocha soy latte stevia" thingers.

But I switched to decaf.

(because too much caffeine makes my heart pound a little too fast...)  ^_^

I have no troubles with coffee, and I drink a lot of it. I don't drink flavored coffee, not because of a gluten concern, but because I just like my coffee to taste like, well, coffee.

This is me too.

My stomach has always had a hard time with coffee.  I basically no longer drink coffee... I used to have a latte or something when I was needing the caffeine, but I now (rarely) will drink 5 hour energy if caffeine is what I desperately need.  I know some coffees can have less acid and stuff than others, but since I am not a coffee connoisseur, I can't really guide ya.  But if you go to one of those nice gourmet places that have a ton of selection you may be able to talk to someone and buy enough to sample of a few kinds.

Try switching to decaf, it's easier on your stomach.  I know my Dad had issues with coffee and they all went away after he moved to decaf.  We suspect he might have been celiac but was never diagnosed though.

I was sensitive to coffie and chewing gum untill I stopped eating something that was bothering me (don't remember what it was). Maby (or maby not) there is something weakining your stomach making you intolerant to strong coffie. It might me worth the try looking into a food diary and see if there is a pattern.

I absolutely loathe, detest and despise coffee.  :wacko:  Nothing to do with my celiac diagnosis.  But I love the smell!  :P

I used to love the smell when I was a kid and when I would ask my Mom if I could try it she'd give me a sip of hers. YUCK!! I hated the taste!

 

But when I was older I tried it black. (Mom used milk and sugar.) BLACK coffee tastes just like coffee smells when you open a new can. If it's fresh it is not bitter at all. It is absolute heaven!

 

I honestly believe that coffee is one of the greatest gifts God has given us. I would give up ICE CREAM before I would give up coffee! It's my number one favorite ingestable substance. :D
