Reverse Osmosis Water has arrived @Coffee Lab Cafe

RSS By Anna McGregor | Aug. 16, 2017

Water has a phenomanal effect on coffee flavor as we have found. Auckland has great water but in New Zealand we dont have enough magnesium in the water which is essentailly what you need to grab out the fruit notes hidden in the coffee as the water passes through. Reverse Osmosis is a system that strips out everything from the water and then passes the water through a remineralization filter of MAGNESIUM CARBONATE, CALCIUM CARBONATE and SODIUM BICARBONATE with the concentration of magnesium being the highest, then calciium and a touch of sodium. Our water in NZ is calcium heavy unfortunately unlike the northern part of the globe in the Nordic countries for example where the coffee community say the water is "touched by the angels". It has magnesium that makes coffee flavor come alive on the palate. The Total Disolved Solids (TDS) of the water is about 18-25 as oppossed to 58 TDS with our standard water filtration and the coffee tastes completely better!!!! Long black and short black and filter coffee drinkers are saying its the best coffee they ever tasted and the water is the difference! Thank you La Marzocco for the sytem and BWT for the filters. It was an expensive install but my its been worthwhile! Come and let us know what you think! 



Happy Easter Everyone!
