A Guide for Coffee Machine Water Filters

A cup of great coffee starts with the water. Coffee is over 97% water, so commitment to water quality should be no less important than your attention to your beans, grind, and contact time. 

Attention to water quality is absolutely critical. Water quality allows for the full extraction of the flavor notes from the coffee.

A water filtration system will also protect your coffee and espresso machinery from being destroyed by scale, but retain enough mineral content to ensure proper extraction transpires during brewing. 

The best water for brewing coffee is crystal clear, odor-free water with zero chlorine, a light amount of water hardness, a neutral pH of 7, and moderate mineral content (around 150 TDS).

Water within these parameters promotes exceptional flavor extraction and full-bodied taste and smell. Since 98% of coffee is comprised of water, the water chemistry of your brew will leave a marked impact on the appearance, smell, and taste of the coffee.

The presence of chlorine risks tainting the coffee with an acrid chemical smell and aftertaste. If your water is too soft, the water won’t extract the subtle flavors of the coffee bean, leaving the brew with a flat taste.

There are three key water quality factors that must be absent from the water in order to brew coffee. The water must be free from any aroma, color, and chlorine for the full taste, body, and smell of the coffee to emerge.

Coffee and espresso filtration systems are water filtration systems designed to achieve ideal brewing quality. They help to remove Odor, Color and Chlorine from water and offer a purer, greater tasting of water.
