Brewing coffee with filtered water.
There is no doubt that the quality of water effects the brew positively. If you consider that a regular coffee is over 90% water, the assumption would be that it is rather important to the outcome of the brew.
Water out of the tap is different in different areas of the country. In East Anglia the tap water is particularly hard. This means that the water coming out of the tap has passed through layers of geology and the water contains an appreciable quantity of dissolved minerals (like calcium and magnesium).
These minerals in hard water areas do effect the taste and therefore effect the outcome of the brew.
Another consideration with hard water is it's effect on coffee machines. The limescale build up in the machines will most certainly lead to it failing before it should. For this reason it is more economical to filter the water than it is to replace the machinery.
Here at Coffee Express we recommend using Brita filters as an economical way of looking after your machines and the taste of your brew. We also make sure of compatability with the machines.

Water filtration makes for a tastier brew and is essential for keeping machines working properly. See our Brita filtration products.
