PS: Your coffee — and its propriety roasting process — has undergone extensive testing to ensure it has significantly lower levels of acid than other coffees on the market. Why does that matter?
Low acidity matters for everyone but in particular for moms. Acidic foods and beverages are hard on the digestive system and also can negatively impact bone density. During pregnancy, many women experience sensitive stomachs and acid reflux, making us particularly affected by acid in the things we consume. Additionally, because, as pregnant women, we are not only taxing our own bones but also growing the bones of a baby, bone health is of utmost importance.
PS: You also offer a variety of levels — decaf, 1/4 caf, 1/2 caf, and full caf. Does having those options really make a difference?
As pregnant women, while we may want to significantly reduce our caffeine intake, I think we can agree that drinking a few tablespoons worth of coffee is not at all satisfying. Mommee Coffee's unique 1/4 caf and 1/2 caf options allow you to have a full cup of delicious coffee while still keeping caffeine consumption low. And if you plan on getting all the mileage you can out of the 200-milligram cap, you may still want to take advantage of our lower-caf coffee so you can indulge in multiple cups a day.
PS: Do you have any qualms about offering a full-caf coffee?
We did have discussions early on as to whether or not to include it. We decided to do so for two main reasons. First and foremost, we want to maximize options so that each mom can decide what is best for her at any given stage. Also, because our coffee offers features that are beneficial to everyone, we wanted post-baby-stage moms, friends of moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas to be able to share in the goodness of Mommee Coffee.
