San Diego Water Quality Solutions

Welcome to our water quality page.

Water quality is incredibly important when operating equipment for any food or beverage based business. In regards to coffee, quality water as important as clean air for our lungs. You can serve award winning coffee from the finest high-priced brewing equipment, but without quality water all your efforts are all for naught.

Since coffee and tea are 98% water let's serve the best damn water possible!

See our recommended espresso machine water filtration and other filtration products below.

Good: Everpure ESO-7 Better: 3M/Cuno P-165B Best: Reverse Osmosis

 



BEST!

Reverse Osmosis or RO is by far the champion of quality water! RO systems are capable of filtering out everything forcing water through a membrane to produce nothing buy pure water. Although not ideal for drinking, RO systems are equipped with an adjustable bypass in order to reintroduce the flavor minerals we want and reach our target tds of about 115 to 130.

In past years to achieve this older systems waste 3 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon (3 to 1 ratio). Today newer technology ratios are 1 gallon of waste to produce 1 gallon of water.

RO systems are manufactured to produce any desired amount of storable water. In other words prices vary. Expect to spend $850 to $5000 or more on an RO system.

Better.

The P-165BN is 3M's latest espresso machine filtration option which is much more effective, at 25% bypass, than Everpures ESO-7. The P-165B our Best Value and we highly recommend these if a RO system is not in your budget.

Good:

Everpure's ESO-7 does a decent job to reduce scale and soften water for espresso machines. Its 40% bypass is designed to allow minerals back into the water to achieve the flavor profiles needed for espresso. Problem is that number needed is fixed.

Pre-filtration

Pre-filtration or fiber filters are designed to filter out larger particles in order to save the life of your standard water filter. These pre-filters take on a bulk of the large debris and are very effective. Best part is, the pre-filter housing or canister are available in a clear color so you can see when they're discolored its time to change them out. We swear by these.

Fiber or Pre-filter available in 10" $8.95 and 20" $10.25
