Hey guys, I'm new here. I asked this question on quora & someone told me to ask my question here...
I love drinking coffee, specially in the morning before going to uni, & in the evening after coming home & relaxing.
But I still haven't found my type!
I tried a type of coffee many years ago & that was my favorite. It was full bodied, but not acidic. It had chocolaty/cocoa-like taste, or maybe nutty! And a bit bitter, but not too much.
Idk what it was, but I still haven't found anything like that.
I guess I'm sensitive to coffee. Specially in the morning. I try to drink a cup of coffee, but then my stomach starts feeling weird.
Generally,after drinking coffee, I start feeling an annoying kind of warmness in my stomach. My stomach gets kinda watery, as if I have drunk 3 glasses of water. Yet it feels very empty (from food). Just like how we wake up in the morning, or when we get very hungry. & sometimes I can hear sounds, specially if I also have stress at that time. It gets awkward when I'm sitting in a classroom.
& "sometimes" it can give me depression or stress, but not always. This usually happens when I drink coffee at coffee shops (espresso based ones I guess).
Idk if it's due to acidity or caffeine. Cuz drinking cola and other fizzy drinks, doesn't give me any of those symptoms. (Though drinking them with empty stomach or without ice cubes can kinda be unpleasant).
& about blends I've tried ;
nestle blend 43, it was ok, but still not good.
Carte noire decaf, (it had a golden color instant coffee granoles) & it was awful. It had a sour citrusy taste that seemed like lime juice coffee! The worst taste ever! Hated it! I guess it's from blonde roast coffee. right?
Molinari (espresso I guess), gave me depression and anxiety for a few hours. Very strong for me.
Turkish coffee, not like others, but I didn't like the taste!
dark roast Espresso (I got it from a store, it doesn't have a brand name), still made my stomach weird and the way I explained.
A nameless french roast (lighter than espresso), it was better than the others, but still not that good.
Starbucks house blend (medium roast), had a good taste, but still gave me stomach problem. And it wasn't full bodied.
I guess the only type of coffee I've tried without having problem was cappuccino (of any brand). & "sometimes" mocha.
But they're hard to make when I'm in a hurry, like in the morning. & I also have to buy expensive coffee machines to make those, but I can't.
What do I do? Which roast/brand/blend should I buy?
