    No matter how much sugar I drink it with, it gives me diarrhea generally the morning after. Why dpes it happen so?

    Same here, the acid is to much.

    Try to drink a big glass of water with some ~500mg Baking Soda before coffee. In Italy and France they serve every coffee with a glass of water - they know why.

    It’s not the acid but perhaps some of the volatile oils that get left behind.... especially with unfiltered methods like MOKA pots, French Press, and Espresso..... it also has opiate antagonist that contribute to this

    Coffee speeds up the digestive system, releases bile, increases stomach acid etc. This can cause loose stools. Think the best think is to keep with it, it eventually improves.

    Drinking it with food can be helpful. Also, the quality of coffee definitely plays a role. Locally roasted is ideal and usually available. Unless you live in Siberia :)

    Oh, and actually found that taking extra K2 helped with coffee tolerance.

    Chlorogenic acid is the main gut irritant in coffee. Milk proteins bind to it to some extent.

    I need to balance the amount of coffee I drink with enough food in order to prevent diarrhea. Further, a darker, richer roast tends to promote looser stools or even IBS like symptoms.
