Our Range of Low Acidity Coffees

For many coffee lovers, the level of acidity within their favourite drinks is a factor that greatly affects their choice of beans, and you may prefer low acidity coffee for taste reasons, or perhaps high acidity levels just don't agree with you.

There are many variations in the acidity levels in coffees, determined by roasting, processing and the growing conditions of the beans, and at Coffee-Direct, we offer a fantastic range of delicious, full-flavoured coffees that are low in acidity.

What Factors Contribute to Acidity in Coffee?

In terms of flavour, the amount of acidity desired in a good cup of coffee is a personal choice; some drinkers love bold acidity in their coffee as it brings an additional sharpness to the flavour, while other drinkers prefer low acidity, with more mellow characteristics.

Acid in coffee is natural, but the way in which coffee beans are processed will impact the level of acidity; beans that are roasted for longer will usually burn off and remove more of the naturally occurring acid, so that a dark roast coffee will generally have lower acidity than a light roast coffee.


Monsoon Malabar – From £13.99

One of India’s most sought-after coffees, Monsoon Malabar is a unique coffee variety, produced from Arabica coffee beans grown in Malabar, one of the wettest regions of India and known for its wild monsoon season.

Our Monsoon Malabar is a heavy-bodied brew that makes a wonderfully mellow and smooth cup of coffee, with deep, rich flavours and aromas. The roast is often described as bold, earthy and sweet, having tobacco and wood notes, as well as intense aromas of dark chocolate and nuts.

Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee – From £17.99

This medium roast Arabica bean from Brazil creates a full-bodied brew with low acidity and minimal bitterness, and it is 99.9% caffeine-free and 100% chemical-free.

The Swiss Water Process is an environmentally friendly process that is 100% natural and involves no added chemicals such as ethyl acetate. It’s a highly intensive procedure that can take up to 10 hours to complete and requires diligent monitoring of time, temperature and flow of water.

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – From £43.99

Grown at altitudes of 900-2350 metres, Jamaican coffee plants thrive in the mountainous conditions of the majestic Blue Mountains, some of the highest peaks in the Caribbean. In this environment, nitrogen and phosphorus-rich volcanic soils, high rainfall, optimum drainage and the protective shading and cooler temperatures of the island’s misty cloud coverage, all combine to produce a clean, subtle and nutty brew with a beautiful balance of aroma and a smooth acidity.

To be classified as Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, beans must be grown above 900 metres in the protected plantations of Saint Thomas, Saint Andrew, Saint Mary and Portland.

Colombian Medium Roast Coffee – From £13.99

Medellin Excelso is an excellent example of the exquisite, full-bodied coffee that Colombia is known for, and testament to the county's reputation as one of the finest exporters of coffee in the world.

Made from beans that have been cultivated in the rich, volcanic soil of Central Cordillera, Medellin Excelso produces a heavy body when roasted, resulting in a delicious nutty flavour with just the right amount of acidity.

Dark Maragogype Coffee – From £16.99

The particular bean used in our medium and mellow Dark Maragogype is known as the 'Elephant Bean', which, as its name suggests, is selected because of its larger size. The Elephant Bean, grown in higher, temperate regions, produces a coffee that is smoother and richer in flavour than standard arabica beans, combined with a slight acidity, resulting in an all-round coffee that can be enjoyed from cafetiere or filters, or as a punchy espresso.
