Folger's Coffee

I just tried some Folger's Coffee that stated was 'easy' on the stomach. Do you know it is? I do notice difference since I have had two cups already this morning. I surely will get it again. I am going to try to find out why the difference? Wonder why they never did this before. Well, anyway maybe some of you have tried it. I just noticed it yesterday due to fact I had some time. Otherwise, I shop for what I want not browse the aisles. Glad i did find it.

Decaf?

They do have decaffeinated coffee too but I took the regular. I just am grateful that I do like it! Many times I have been disappointed. I just tried the smaller size. Next time i won't be hesitant about getting large one.

It may be a low acid coffee. Kava sold that many years ago but it seems to have dropped offf the map.

It is the acid. If you are sensitive to coffee's acidic qualities, I suggest investigating making coffee by the toddy method. You put ground coffee in cold water and let it sit overnight. Then filter off the grounds and keep the concentrate in the fridge, using it like "instant coffee". It truly makes a wonderful cup of coffee that you can control the strength. And you can immediately notice the "smoothness" of it--quite remarkable.
A brand of coffee that is also very smooth, and therefore I assume less acid is Cafe Britt. It is a Costa Rican organic coffee that is exceptionally good--great espresso. You can buy it on the net, of course.

In other words, you don't use the coffemaker at all? Just pour the grounds in water? I really have never heard of this. Some times I feel like I am living in the woods. I will surely try it with coffee I have on hand.

This Cafe Britt you put that in coffeemaker don't you? I haven't noticed this brand in the store but as you said can get over the net. Thanks you so much. Really a good idea

Cafe Britt is a major plantation in Costa Rica--excellent coffee. You would have to order it.
For toddy coffee, there is an actual "maker" for it, but if you don't mind a bit of mess, it is easy to do yourself.
Put

Let me go find the right measurements and I'll be back and edit this.
This is what a toddy maker looks like
Amazon.com: toddy coffee

to make it without this.
Mix 2C ground coffee with 6C cold water. Put the grounds INTO the water and just push it down gently. DO NOT stir.
Let sit overnight on the counter.
Filter out all the solids. You can use a sieve lined with a coffee filter--or even a paper towel
Put the concentrate in a jar and store in the fridge.
Add the amount of concentrate to a cup of hot water to make the coffee the way you like it.
The directions say to use coarse ground coffee. Last time I used my fine grind that I always use. It was fine.
This makes a cup of coffee you would swear was brewed. It is a great tool to use when having a group over that you are not sure are going to drink much coffee.

Just like you drew me a picture. (what they say around here when I can't figure something out) Well, anyway I know just how to do it but as you said it does take time and I want to know how it is and will surely let you know when I do.


I am so thankful I mentioned this about Folger's Smooth Coffee. As I said, like I am living in the woods!

As for Folger's, it has been decades since I tasted it, but it was never my fave. Too weak. You will enjoy the toddy coffee--and truly notice the difference immediately in your taste/mouth. It is quite remarkable.

I checked the link out that you mentioned and would you mind telling me which one you prefer? I had no idea they had different ones. Thanks
