US-based low-acid coffee company trücup has partnered with coffee roaster Farmer Brothers, as part of which the latter will be responsible for increasing trücup’s footprint across the US.

Farmer Brothers will reach out to new businesses, restaurants and foodservice industries to increase trücup’s national distribution.

trücup co-founding partner Andy Gomes said: “This partnership will bring trücup’s low-acid coffee to market to an entirely new audience.

trücup offers a third category of coffee, which uses a patented water and steam process to reduce acid.

The company claims that its light roast is less acidic than other national brands.

“Our goal is to distribute great coffee. With trücup low-acid coffee, we know we are bringing a unique, high-quality product to millions of Americans who have been skipping their daily cup of coffee because of stomach issues.”
