How to Make the Best Homebrewed Low Acidity Coffee

Something spectacular happened about 2 months ago now – our coffee maker broke. After the initial shock and horror wore off, we decided to pursue the brewing of a better cup of coffee. We were aiming for something both flavorful and low acidity, since my wife has a highly sensitive stomach and we both love our morning cup of joe. This is what we landed on.

Shopping List:

  1. 1 x Half pound bag of Guatemalan French Roast (whole beans) from Dunn Bros. ($10-$14)
  2. 2 x 5 liter glass jugs. These can be oddly expensive to buy, but you can get a cheap table wine in a 5L jug for $15 and just reuse the jugs. Also, the wine jugs come with a cap, which helps for shaking things up without a horrible mess.
  3. 1 x Aerobie Aeropress. ($22 on Amazon) Perhaps there’s another way to filter coffee as effectively, but we found using the Aeropress works a whole lot better than anything else we tried.
  4. 1 x funnel


  1. Grind 1/2 pound (8 oz.) of beans and funnel them into the 5L jug.
  2. Fill remainder of jug w/ filtered water.
  3. Cap the jug and place it in a dark place at room temperature for 20-24 hours.
  4. After the 20-24 hours is up, filter the entire coffee mixture with the Aeropress into a new jug. Replace the filter every 3rd load. The coffee gets a bit acidic if you overuse the filters.
  5. Store the filtered coffee in your fridge.
  6. Drink at your leisure.

Give it a shot. It definitely adds a notch or two to your quality of life in the early morning.
