Works pretty well for us but YMMV.
I will pass this on. It's been many years since I gave up my two mugs of morning coffee because my stomach started complaining. I still enjoy an occasional cup of good coffee as a treat, though.

It would be bad if slugs or snails actually liked coffee. Instead of being sluggish or moving at a snail's pace, it would be, "look at that escargot-go-go!"
