Many of our patients love the taste and smell of coffee, but not the way it makes them feel when they are dealing with chronic GI issues, like acid reflux, constipation, gas, bloating, etc. Research has show that coffee can contribute to symptoms of acid reflux and IBS for many reasons including: pesticide residues on the beans, histamine intolerance, caffeine, and more. 1
We have never been big coffee drinkers, but we do love the taste and smell. There are also many health benefits to a warm and soothing beverage. That is why we were happy to find Teeccino, an organic prebiotic herbal coffee with no caffeine, no gluten, and a reduced chance of exacerbating acid reflux and other GI issues.

1 Tbsp of Teeccino
16 oz of Boiling Water
Homemade Cashew Milk
1 Cup of Soaked Cashews
2 Cups of Filtered Water
Pinch of salt
Pinch of Cinnamon
1-2 Medjool Dates
Drip of Vanilla Extract
Steep the Teeccino for 2-3 minutes using a french press, coffee maker, or tea cylinder.
Blend all of the milk ingredients until you have a cashew milk consistency. You can also use a store bought milk of choice.
Add the milk to the brewed Teeccino in a 50:50 ratio or less depending how you like your latte.
Just for the record, we are not against drinking a high quality, organic and 3rd party tested coffee. We just find that most of the coffee people are drinking can be highly contaminated, people usually drink too much, and they become highly dependent on it. 2
If you are suffering from severe dysbiosis and unable to tolerate most FODMAP rich foods, Teeccino can potentially be an issue as well. Consult your knowledgable care team/integrative dietitian as each person is different and may need customized approaches.
