When it comes to crafting the perfect cup of coffee or tea, we often focus on the quality of the beans or leaves, the brewing method, and even the grind size.
However, we seem to always neglect the second most important ingredient: water.
Clean, high-quality water is the unsung hero behind every exceptional brew.
Something we often don’t think about is how important clean water is when it comes to brewing coffee, but there are so many ways water impacts the flavors, aromas, and overall experience of your cup of joe.
The Importance of Clean Water for Coffee
Water acts as a solvent, extracting compounds from the coffee or tea during the brewing process. If your water contains impurities such as rust or chlorine, you might pick up on some unusual and unpleasant flavors in your coffee.
Clean water allows all those wonderful flowery, nutty, smoky, or acidic notes to really make their presence known in your cup of coffee.
Making sure to always use a high-quality water helps maintain consistency in your brewing process. This is especially crucial for coffee shops that want to provide a consistent taste to their customers. By using the same fresh and clean water every time, you can be sure that every cup is delicious and predictable.
Water quality can also have an impact on your coffee maker. Minerals deposits and impurities present in the water over long periods of time can lead to scale buildup, clogging, and corrosion of your brewing equipment. By using clean water, you can reduce the risk of mineral buildup, protect your investment, and ensure optimal performance for years to come.
