A local kombucha brewery just launched their first coffee kombucha...They use coffee in place of the green tea. What is your guys' take on this? Would you try it? Isn't coffee essentially phytic acid juice?

I love coffee, and believe there are healthful benefits in coffee, but not sure how I'd like sour tasting coffee. It would be worth a taste.

Coffee can lead to a feeling of being jittery and an increased heart rate. It's possible to drink coffee and not have any of these experiences.

Do you put anything in your coffee? Most coffee creamers, both dairy and non dairy, have a ton of unnecessary ingredients and hidden allergens. Coffee allergy is pretty rare so I was thinking it could be something else like that.
