Reflux: The majority of reflux can be treated with lifestyle changes alone including diet changes. You should also avoid eating 3 hours prior to sleep and sleep with your head elevated. The extremes which you follow depend on the severity of your symptoms. If your symptoms are worse with coffee, there is your answer. I would see the ENT doctor to ensure that your head and neck exam is consistent with LPR.
