So, is acidity in coffee good or bad? Well… it depends. There are good and bad acids where taste is concerned. Though there are many sources of acidity in coffee, it is only a mildly acidic beverage, with a pH of around 5, as compared to the pH of 2 in wine.
You may have heard acidity being described positively as “brightness” when it tastes good, and negatively as “sourness” when it doesn’t taste nice.
Brightness lifts a coffee in your mouth and gives its structure. A lot of the sweetness in coffee is also elevated from such brightness.
Coffees grown at higher altitudes, like the Arabica coffea tree, often exhibit more structured, complex and positive acidity.
Some of the coffees contained in Moving Beans compostable coffee pods have a pleasant level of acidity which give the coffee a unique character. Let us know which you think has that note of "brightness".

Are you someone who loves coffee and usually uses a Nespresso machine? We all can’t deny how using Nespresso machines and coffee pods are indeed super convenient, Though we also know that every cup of coffee we make using a Nespresso machine can contribute to polluting our environment.
It's early days, but the Aussie-made Moving Beans seems to be a hit down under.
We've learnt a lot from Australian coffee culture - some of the world's best coffee roasters are Australian and even London's burgeoning coffee scene is heavily inspired by Australian coffee culture.
So what we tried to do is pack that great culture and great taste into our compostable and biodegradable coffee pods. A great example of this is our Australian Classic Espresso Blend.
