We've mentioned the importance of good water on our blog. It's also the third of our four coffee brewing basics. Good water is vitally important! And Third Wave Water makes it easy to make perfect coffee brewing water
What makes up your tap water, spring water, or your favorite bottled water depends on where that water came from. The terroir of water is much like that of coffee. Where the soil type, rainfall, and solar intensity affect the flavor of coffee; the flavor of water comes from subterranean minerals like dolomite, halite and limestone. The occurrences of such minerals varies across the globe, thus explaining some of the variation in drinking water from city to city.
The SCA has guidelines on where your water should be to achieve optimum brewing results. The problem is that most people don't know what to do with these guidelines. To bring your current water within this range requires not only knowing where your current water is but also which specific filtration techniques apply to your specific water situation. This is why we developed the Third Wave Water (TWW) capsules. Start with either distilled water or water from a reverse osmosis system, then add the TWW re-mineralization capsule to blend in the perfect amount of calcium, magnesium and sodium. Whether you are brewing that perfect cup in your fortress of solitude or visiting your cousin Eddy for Christmas, your favorite third wave coffee will taste its best when brewed with Third Wave Water.
