Costco Coffee, Starbucks Roast - Anyone React To It?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever had a reaction to COSTCO whole bean coffee, regular arabica (not decaf), roasted by Starbucks - especially recently?

I am able to drink other brands without an issue, and in the past have used this brand (probably without issue but not sure - I'm still trying to get on the other side of occasional gluten episodes).

Note: It could also be my coffee maker or my grinder. Not sure, so I wanted to check to see if others have had any problems.

Thank you.

Am having tea this morning -- don't want to risk a "test" with our home coffee. Hoping some folks will reply here. Thanks!

No one commented on this, but I will several years later.  I've been gluten free for over 2 years, but kept bloating.  I kept removing other food and chemicals out of my diet.  After a trip away from our home coffee (which was Costco) with less bloating, I eliminated Costco coffee (Seattle Mountain brand which is the Arabica whole beans).  About a month ago, Costco coffee made it's way back into my kitchen.  After many months of almost no bloating, once I started drinking the Costco coffee, I was bloated every day.  I took Costco coffee out of our kitchen.  I was almost back to normal except today.  I had a cup of Starbucks decaf around noon.  It is Arabica beans also.  I bloated right after that.  I can have Starbucks House Blend without issues. 

 

Also notice that my GERD came back with a vengeance when Costco coffee snuck back into our kitchen.  After I took Costco coffee back out of the kitchen, GERD disappeared UNTIL the decaf Arabica coffee from today.  I'd like to hear if others have experienced this also.

As a heads up, my doctor also told me to be aware of teas.  Many factories use a glue to hold together the bag which is wheat-based.

That is an old internet rumor.  Bags are heat sealed usually.  A wheat based glue would dissolve in hot water. 

 

A few teas are "malted" so you would want to check ingredients for barley or malt.

I have been using Folgers Special Roast coffee without any issues. I haven't tried any of Starbuck's since going gluten free. I hope that is of some help.

I am new to this and am still in the diagnostic stage, but would be very unhappy if I have to give up coffee. What  other coffees would you recommend for someone with celiac disease?

Coffee is gluten free. Drink whatever brand you like.
