Are there any types of coffee that won't aggravate my GERD?

I have been having chronic problems with GERD/acid reflux/heartburn for the past couple months. I've had issues for years but much more sporadically and only after a day of eating particularly acidic meals and/or drinks.

But after a really bad bout of heartburn a couple months ago, it's become a constant battle. I went to see a Gastroenterologist and he recommended I take Prilosec every morning for a month and see how I feel. I have been doing that and I've been careful about what I eat, but the one thing I'd really like to be able to have is coffee. Unfortunately, one cup triggers acid reflux that lasts for two days. I tried decaf, doesn't help. I tried low acid coffee, didn't notice any difference, it still triggered terrible heartburn. Am I doomed to have to give up coffee forever? Any suggestions?

What do you put in your coffee? I had to give up milk and drink black coffee.
On January 2021, I switched Medium to Dark Roast Colombian Excelso EP (with Melitta Pour-Over) and I have less to no symptoms of GERD after coffee.
