If drinking hot coffee causes such issues for you, try switching to cold-brewed. The benefits will still be present, but hopefully the discomfort won’t. If you truly prefer hot coffee, simply brew it cold and strong, and mix in hot water before you drink it. Making this small change in your routine could mean the difference between feeling bad and feeling better.

The process of making cold-brewed coffee is simple: Steep ground coffee (preferably coarse) in water using a coffee filter, cheese cloth or nut milk bag. While steeping, store in a room temperature or colder setting, soaking for 12 hours or more. Cold-brewed coffee doesn’t go stale as quickly as hot-brewed, so feel free to make a big batch and enjoy the ease of your new morning coffee!
