Hello Phil.  Looks like an old thread that got active again.  Since my original post I drink just regular coffee again, no decaf.  I try to stick to no more than 4 cups a day. Also I have found that, believe it or not, a cup of mint tea about an hour before bed stops any nightime acid reflux issues.  I was in to a TUMS kick, but found out that caused other digestion issues.

Oops...sorry for the necromancy...I saw dates of May but of course neglected to note :D that they were in 2006.

Mint tea, huh?  Mint is supposed to relax the LES valve, so it is interesting that this works for you.

I believe that an excess amount of it may; however a moderate amount (not overly strong) helps alot in digestive issues.  Spearmint tea have been used for eons for such:

Lots more on the net.  I swear by it.  I used to use prilosec, axid, tums, and the others, but wanted to stop using them and go a more natural herb route.  Tums killed my lower digestive tract, gave me horrible gas/diarrhea.  The spearmint tea did it for me.

Hi Len,

I feel better now, even if you are at near abstinence it is better than no coffee at all.  Faced with that prospect I would consider the surgery which nennafir mentioned even though the thought of knives applied to my body makes me shudder.

Hello.  I have that freakin' acid reflux issue that hits alot of us coffee drinkers.  I had it in the past, before I started roasting.  Now I have it again and it really stinks.

The problem is that I cannot drink caffeinated coffee.  It is the caffeine that causes the reflux, believe it or not.

So I guess what I am asking is do any of you know a great decaf blend that tastes super?  Again, no caffeine, real low in acid, tastes great.

Please let me know.  I am on my 4th day with no coffee at all.  I am past the major headaches, however I have to do a 2 week stretch here.  And afterwards I do not want to go through this again.

NEED GOOD DECAF BAD.  HELP ME ~~~~~~~~~...........

Phil, have you ever tried peppermint tea?  A glass a day before bed has helped me out alot.  I don't even take antiacids anymore.  I get my tea loose at coffeebeandirect.com.

For bulk herb purchases I like www.herbalcom.com I have been buying tea from them for years. Peppermint is under $5/lb. They have a flat handling fee of $7 (free shipping) so I try to make sure I buy a couple pounds at once.

I read somewhere that using a paper filter helps with the acid issue. When I'm not drinking espresso I make coffee with a Clever Coffee Dripper and paper filter- both available at SM's. Haven't had any acid trouble since I started making coffee that way. FWIW.

Hi Len,

I got some Stash Herbal Tea Bags of Peppermint tea.  There may be something to this. I had a cup last night. I was feeling generally lousy and it seemed to help.  It isn't hard to drink.  Is it OK for a Coffeegeek to admit this?  I'm not a tea person. Are tea bags the abomination that we would consider instant coffee crystals?

Phil
