The Perfect Cup of Coffee

According to the National Association of Coffee (NCA), coffee is the lifeblood of more than 65% of Americans. Between our daily jobs, side hustles, school, and more, there’s no end to the list of things to do. But if your morning cup of joe doesn’t fuel you to tackle the endless barrage of tasks, chores, and obligations, how do you get through it all?

Hard Water and Your Home

Did you know that nearly 85% of American households have a problem with hard water in their homes? Even more homes in California are subjected to hard water due to our proximity to mountain ranges like the Sierra Nevada, San Gabriel, Cascade Range, and more.

Hard water is caused by spring water picking up minerals and sediment as it flows on its natural course to eventually be collected into our water systems. Trace amounts of magnesium, calcium, and iron may not sound like a big deal, but in the quantities we use in our daily lives, they can make or break many elements of our morning.

How does hard water affect my coffee?

Thanks to the different types of sediment and minerals flowing through our home’s water supply, our water can taste strange or metallic. When you create coffee with strange tasting water, it can taste different than how you imagined (or like).

Fight Back Against Hard Water

Investing in a whole home water purifier or filter can reduce the amount of sediment and minerals in your home’s water supply, which can save your plumbing fixtures and skin as well as your morning cup of coffee.
