I love coffee but I am having more problems with heartburn the older I get.  I am going to try to brew my own going forward to see if I can make coffee I like that will like me back.  I prefer espresso and darker roasts.
Can anyone tell me if any of these brewers will be better or worse on heartburn?

technivorm drip
Kalita Wave, Yama sock, wood neck
Chemex

Thanks for any opinions and info.

I switched from using a French Press to Chemex in the last 6 months and I definitely have less heart burn and indigestion.  I'd like to tell you that the Chemex traps more of the sediment and oils and thus reduces indigestion, I really can't say that it has much to do with it in my case.

I've changed a lot of things in my life.  I drink maybe 1 soft drink a week whereas I use to drink 2 or 3 a day.  I drink much more water.  I have less stress in my life.

I've read caffeine is a major contributor to heart burn so I think giving up the soft drinks is what helped me and I drink as much coffee if nor more than I use to.  So, you might want to look at other factors and not blame just the coffee.

Cold brew:  I just take a big jar and I fill it about 1/3 full of ground coffee.  I match the volume with water, so then the jar is 2/3 full.  I put the lid on and shake it up, then loosen the lid to allow the coffee to bloom.  In about an hour (or whenever, I may add more water.  It's really all up to your taste.  If I'm just doing an overnight, I leave it on the counter.  If I'm going 24 hour, I'll let it sit in the refrigerator.  To separate the solids, I'll pour it through my regular kitchen strainer, then go through a regular coffee filter (or into my chemex).  After I wash the original jar, I'll pour the finished cold brew back into the jar because I like to keep the lid on.

I like to try different beans.  Every now and then I come across one that gives me heartburn (usually a light roast) while using my more typical brewing methods (pour over or moka).  So I will revert to cold brew to finish up the beans.  When the heartburn/reflux is a side effect of medicine I take, I just have to cut down the size of my one cup of coffee/day or have tea instead.  Good thing I like tea.  Yea, I've had to cut soda too -- for iced tea.
