Does Your Coffee or Hot Drink Taste Off?

You have everything you need to make the perfect cup of coffee: trusty coffee maker, tasty beans, your favorite mug…but something still tastes off. Before you buy a new machine or run through your grocery store’s entire coffee selection, ask yourself: could it be your water? Any barista will tell you that the secret to truly great coffee is the water. The same is true for tea and other warm beverages, like hot chocolate. With fall on its way and cool temperatures on the horizon, now is the perfect time to make sure your water is in top drinking shape.

The minerals found in tap water can leave an unpleasant taste in your beverages. Most tap water contains chlorine. Hard water in particular contains large amounts of sodium and magnesium, as well as minerals called bicarbonates that make coffee bitter. You may also find that your tap water tastes metallic or acidic on its own, which will give your warm beverages the same problem. While some of these problems can be fixed by using filtered or bottled water, it won’t solve everything and can become expensive. The better option is to treat yourself and all the hot drink lovers in your home to a new home filtration system.
