SEATTLE, WA - Trücup, a low-acid coffee company, has announced a partnership with Farmer Bros. Co. (Northlake, TX), a national coffee roaster.

Trücup is described as a "third category" of coffee that uses a patented water and steam process to reduce acid. According to the company, this process makes Trücup an option for the 25 million Americans who have had to give up coffee due to GERD, acid reflux and other gastrointestinal issues.

The Farmer Brothers partnership is expected to increase Trücup's national distribution to even more businesses, restaurants and foodservice industries across the country.

"This partnership will bring Trücup low-acid coffee to market to an entirely new audience," said trücup cofounding partner Andy Gomes. "The unique processing of our coffee beans means that Trücup can be easier on the stomach, but it is also smooth, easy to drink and delicious." Trücup's light roast is said to be up to 4.6 times less acidic than leading national brands. It's available in five roast colors including light, medium, dark, espresso and French roast.

"We are looking forward to a great partnership with Trücup," said Scott Siers, senior vice-president and general manager of Direct Ship for Farmer Brothers. "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."

Farmer Brothers, founded in 1912, is a leading national roaster, manufacturer, wholesaler and distributor of coffee, tea, spices and other culinary products to retail and foodservice businesses. Trücup, established in 2012, is marketed and distributed nationally.

Farmer Bros. Co. generated net sales of over $600 million in fiscal 2018.
