I used to drink brewed coffee before by the liter. It' really no wonder why I had GERD. Coffee is very, very acidic and if it's the only thing you've had in a 24-hour period, done over a prolonged period of time, you'd really get sick like I did.
So it's been a while (since October last year) since I had coffee especially the brewed kind. But since I turned 34, I've been craving to have a taste of my favorite food and drinks once again. Perhaps if I do it in moderation this time, I'll be okay.
So I started my forbidden adventure with instant coffee. But it's not just any other instant coffee, it has to be the cappuccino or latte kind. It's great timing that we discovered two instant coffee brands that seemed to be good for me (meaning I'm not experiencing any heartburn or acid reflux after drinking a cup) --- Kopiko's Kopiccino and Good Day's Vanilla Latte, Chococinno and Mocacinno.
In fairness, they do taste good even if they're instant. Plus, the coffee creamer that's mixed in there is non-dairy so good for me too! For around Php7.00 per sachet, these instant coffee mixes are able to imitate the real goodness of lattes and cappuccinos. How amazing!
These instant cappuccinos and lattes also go very well with my homemade Grilled Edam Cheese and Honey Sandwich. Yay! Even Peter loved the pairing!
So anyway, I've been having a cup of these coffee goodness since last week and so far I'm feeling good. I need to stay awake to finish up all my responsibilities before I head off to another exciting vacation. Thanks Kopiko and Good Day! Whoever made you, they're awesome. :)
