Why Filtered Water?
Here’s a coffee break trivia for you: tap water can contain substances like chlorine, lead, pesticides, bacteria, and even traces of pharmaceutical drugs. Now, that's a mix that might make you rethink filling your kettle straight from the tap. Besides potential health concerns, these uninvited extras can have quite the negative impact on your coffee experience.
Chlorine, for instance, is great for keeping our water supply safe and bacteria-free, but it's not exactly renowned for its flavor-enhancing qualities. Brew your coffee with a chlorinated water, and you might just end up with a cup that has subtle notes of, well, swimming pool. Similarly, high levels of minerals (often found in hard water) can lead to over-extraction, muddling the unique flavors of your coffee and leaving you with a bitter aftertaste.
On the other hand, filtered water steps in like a superhero with one mission: protecting your coffee from taste-detracting villains. By significantly reducing these contaminants, filtered water provides a blank canvas for your coffee, letting the true flavors of your beans burst into the limelight.
It’s like taking a high-definition photo. You wouldn't want specks on your camera lens, would you? Those specks could blur the image and detract from the vibrancy of your shot. Similarly, you wouldn't want impurities in your water that could cloud the full-bodied, rich flavor profile of your coffee.
So, for a clear, crisp, and true coffee taste, filtered water is your go-to companion. It's time to let your coffee beans shine in all their glory. They deserve it, don’t they?
