Coffee 101 - Acidity
ACID: Now what about acidity? There is a lot to say about acid in coffee hence it receives its very own singular position as Part 3 in Coffee 101.
Coffee beans have been found to have about 30 types of acids, many familiar such as those found in citric fruit, malic acid found in apples, and acetic acid found in vinegar. The primary acids in coffee are part of a group called chlorogenic acids and are largely responsible for flavor. These are actually antioxidants and beneficial.
