Golden Ratio is a low acid, lighter tasting alternative to traditional black coffee. Our "gold roasted" coffee beans are roasted at lower temperatures to create a smooth tea-like coffee, gold in color, with no loss of caffeine!
Gold coffee has been described as both “tea for coffee people” and “coffee for tea people.” It’s lighter than black coffee with no bitterness, and tastes like a wonderfully rich tea with a hint of coffee.
Golden Ratio tests at a pH of 6 (similar to earl grey tea), whereas most other coffees test closer to 5 (more acidic). pH is measured on a logarithmic scale, which means one point higher is actually 10x greater, but we say 5x because occasionally the difference in pH between gold coffee and regular coffee is less than a point.
When you drink Golden Ratio, you immediately taste the difference in acidity with regular coffee. Gold coffee goes down incredibly smooth with no astringent feeling in your mouth and throat.
