Coffee or Tea Being Ruined by Hard Water?

Are you a coffee or tea lover like many of us at Water Doctors? Would you like to learn how to make your coffee or tea taste even better? The answer is simple and only three words…. Reverse Osmosis Water!

When making your coffee or tea, the quality of water used to brew is one of the most important parts. After all, they consist of 97% to 99% water!

If you think about it, if you are not filtering your water, what else is in your water? There are minerals-that naturally occur in ground water, bacteria, chlorine- city added to travel safely to your home or any sort of contaminant, and all those are going to affect the flavor of your coffee or tea. All in all, the purer your water is, the more of the coffee or tea you will be tasting.

A reverse osmosis (RO) system is the ideal solution for drinking water in your home. The RO system has four layers of filtration used to provide 99.999% pure drinking water right at your kitchen sink. It removes total dissolved solids (learn more about TDS on our Water 101 post), heavy metals and taste & odor.

If you are on city water, part of the municipality’s water treatment process is the addition of chlorine to ensure that water travels safely from the water treatment facility through all the piping (new or old) into your home. Yuck, think about how far the water has traveled and what in. And, chlorine (bleach), used to bring it safely, double yuck!! You are drinking all that if you are not filtering the water prior to consumption. Chlorine is one of the common ways to ruin a cup of coffee of tea!

There are some that don’t believe using reverse osmosis is the best choice for brewing your coffee or tea because the removal of the minerals takes away from the flavor and produces coffee or tea that tastes “flat.” However, the one thing all experts confirm is water too hard will make a terrible cup of coffee or tea.

If you want to have the perfect tasting cup of coffee or tea every time, reverse osmosis is the way to go. It will provide clear, odor free, chlorine free water. Ready to brew that great cup of coffee of tea, our experts are here to help with reverse osmosis water.
