Default which one sounds better in English?

Hi everybody

I would like to know which sentence sounds more natural when you say that something you ate gave you a stomach ache.

A) The coffee didn't agree with me/disagreed with me.

B) The coffee didn't sit well with me.

C) The coffee made me sick to the stomach.

I appreciate your help!

As is, I'll go with A.

B and C need to be altered slightly for me:
B) The coffee didn't sit well with my stomach.

C) The coffee made me sick to my stomach.

If those changes were made, all of them would be fine in my book.

In American English, all are equally good, except that C should read:
The coffee made me sick to my stomach.
