From what I understand, cold brew coffee is a lot lower in acid (I've read it has 2/3 less acid) than regular brew coffee. Now, you mentioned you wanted a hot drink, not a cold one, but if you make cold brew coffee at home, it's concentrated -- meaning you can add hot water to it without having "weak" coffee. This article has some interesting info on an experiment with coffee acidity: www.bruer.co/blogs/news/58999428-cold-brew

I think cold brew coffee tastes better as well - less bitter. As others have mentioned, you can also try lower acid coffees to start; they'd be even lower if cold-brewed.

I had a kidney stone, and it was not oxalate related. I drink tea every day, and I have not had another stone.
It is a shame to stay away from something you like, when you have no proof that you need to!
Have you been eating spinach, chocolate, rhubarb. etc? If so, you can have the tea too.

No, I was not diagnosed. The nurses told me. I had no idea about chocolate. Thanks for letting me know!

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll check into them.

Have you tried any of the low acid coffees? www.littlecoffeeplace.com/coffee-beans/low

What about herbal tea - dandelion root tea tastes very similar to regular tea and is quite good for you.

Your stone was evaluated and found to be caused by oxalates?
Do you also avoid chocolate, spinach, rhubarb, and other oxalates?

I was going to recommend cocoa, but if you can't have tea, you can't have chocolate either....

I have changed my eating habits and now I realize coffee gives acid reflux. I have been at this about two weeks and have cut my coffee in half. From three cups to one and a half. This has been way harder than changing my diet.

I can't switch to tea. I actually started drinking coffee once I couldn't have tea anymore.
(Kidney stone).

Do you guys have another hot drink to recommend? ( No alchohol) ,

THhanks!
