I recently had the chance to try out Tyler's Regular Acid Free Coffee. I love coffee, but quite often coffee doesn't love me... if you get my drift. For this reason, I was really excited to give Tyler's Coffee a good solid go. Tyler's Coffee is made from South American Arabica beans and then brought to their roasting facility in Arizona. They use a special computerized process, called the Z-roasting process, that allows for high levels of caffeine (yay!) while at the same time creating an acid free coffee (even bigger YAY!). The benefits of an acid free coffee are less tooth enamel wear, and less stomach issues for those with sensitive stomachs.
I made a pot for myself since hubby decided to forgo helping me with this review, and put in my usual sugar and cream. Honestly, I didn't really care for the taste. It was... different. I wouldn't exactly say it was an aftertaste, and the overall boldness was great. (I like my coffee STRONG.) Maybe I'm just picky, but I can usually down any sort of flavor and brand of coffee without batting an eye at the difference in taste. I set my mug down, and tried it again about 30 minutes later, after it had cooled off. I usually never manage to finish and actual cup of coffee before it gets cold anyway. This time around I liked the flavor of the coffee better at room temperature. I would probably recommend Tyler's Coffee cold over ice. That different taste that came out while it was hot, seemed to disappear, or at least decrease the colder it got. I may have also made the coffee a little too strong. I made 6/7 cups with the 2oz package I received instead of the recommended 10 cups.
If you are looking for a substitute for your usual coffee because of a sensitive stomach, I think this is a decent substitute. It's certainly much better than the stomach pain I've suffered with other brands of coffee. At the very least it's worth a try! I did enjoy what seemed to be an additional boost of energy which is probably due to their roasting process and higher levels of caffeine.
I didn't get to try the decaffeinated version, however Tyler's Coffee says they use a Swiss Water Based process to decaffeinate the coffee and use NO chemicals! If something is chemical free, it is definitely worth a try just for that fact alone.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
