Is coffee a extremely acidic?


Wiki User

the acidity of coffee variously depends on the mtehod of brewing and the kind of seeds(arabica or robusta). robusta has higher percentage of caffeine and acidity. therefore it is not appropriate to generalise coffee as an extreme acidic beverage. however for people who suffers from gastritis (gastric problem), drinking coffee in empty stomach is not recommended because the sudden intake of caffeine might trigger the production of acid in the stomach which furthermore instigate gastritis problem.
