    Dry mouth

    Hi,

    I have been searching for the answer to a coffee question and joined this forum in hopes of meeting with success in my search.

    My question:
    Some coffees cause very dry puckered mouth and others do not. What is the difference between coffees that cause this and those that do not? Thanks in advance for any light that you can shed on this.

    Jeff

    Caffeine is a diuretic and the higher the caffeine level in the coffee and quantity you are drinking can can cause dehydration to the point of experiencing a dry mouth.

    Try decaf. to see if the problem goes away

    I just bought a Nespresso. I have been drinking dark roast all my life, but from day one my Nespresso causes dry mouth. I wii experiment with decaffeinated.

    Is this the only time you experience the dry mouth? And after how many cups?

    Are you sure you're experiencing dry mouth, or is it more like a harsh bitter aftertaste after drinking a lot of coffee? Does it go away after you brush your teeth (and tongue)?

    Yes, it’s true that caffeine is a diuretic. That is why heavy coffee drinker looks for water after finishing a cup of coffee. Arabica coffee has lesser caffeine than other coffee, thus Arabica tastes better. To avoid dryness in the mouth, you better drink coffee that has lesser caffeine concentration or drink more water.

    It's best to drink plenty of water during the day in addition to the coffee that you drink.

    Might not be a bad idea to check with dentist if is happening at other times also.

    Hello BuddyHolly,

    Have you started taking a new medication recently? Some medications cause dehydration and "dry mouth"

    Did you experiment with decaf yet?
