Dear Anne
Thank you for your kind words which make my day. Pure coffee and/or caffeine should not cause bloating under normal circumstances unless you suffer from a digestive problem like gastritis, ulcers or irritable bowel syndrome. The general recommendation by nutrition experts worldwide is that 4 cups of brewed or pure coffee are regarded as acceptable. Excessive coffee drinking and intake of caffeine can lead to a variety of symptoms such as irritation of the stomach lining, sleeplessness and irritability because caffeine is a stimulant.
Have a good day
