  1. I have seen we discussed water boilers on various topics, but I think is best to have all that information in one place. If there was a previous topic about this (which would mean that my search skills are rubbish) my apologies. As I'm planning to serve a lot of teas in my future tearoom, I want to get a hot water boiler. Preferably one that has an under counter unit and a faucet on top. 0 I have various brands like Marco, Instanta, Lincat, Bravilor, Buffalo, Adexa, but I would like to know what you are using and what are your experiences with those (or other) brands. Did your boiler ever break down? Had any troubles with it? How fast is when you are in a rush (I don't want clients waiting for their tea because my boiler takes ages) and how reliable it is when you need a certain temperature (because I will need various temps like 75 or 80 degrees). Also, I'm located in a hard water area so any softner recommendations are also welcomed (especially about some decent cheap ones). Thank you!
  2. Hi, the video gives you a step by step tutorial how to repair your Nivona CR 740 when you'll find water under the machine: YouTube video The video has a German soundtrack, but English subtitles are available on YouTube. Enjoy it, Jürgen
  3. Espresso & boiler friendly water: Not all water that meets non-scaling parameters makes coffee that tastes nice. The shorthand answer is to find water with a bicarbonate level between 50-80mg/L as ion/bottled water label (as CaCO3 alkalinity this would be 40-60mg/L) for your espresso machine, that tastes nice. If your water is in this range and all your coffee tastes bad, change the water for different one but still in this range. Using a particular water that doesn't scale, but is of a make up/so soft that makes your coffee taste bad/low body isn't a great idea. Plus you generally want some bicarbonate & a pH over 6 to lessen the chances of corrosion. It's swings & roundabouts, very soft water won't scale but can cause corrosion, harder water is less likely to be corrosive, but more likely to scale. If Volvic tastes OK, no need to change. Volvic sits just outside of recommended spec for boiler care, but just outside, lots of folk will testify it's fine regarding lack of scaling. Waitrose Essentials Lockhills is smack bang in the middle of desired range, the only UK bottled water that is. Here's a link to UK bottled waters & mix ratios to achieve boiler friendly water... https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/187vd8fjVQGCrvaoEz071BoSEOl-IY3rTl0-fZXLGx1w/edit?usp=sharing Manual brewing Choices are much wider here, kettles are easier to descale if necessary. The make up of the water has no impact on objective extraction yield, you don't need high mineral content to extract the flavour. Water make up does change the taste of the coffee, so just use a water that doesn't ruin your coffee (this could still be Volvic or Lockhills if that's what you can easily get). You probably don't want your brew kettle scaling up if it has its own element, but if you get good brews with high mineral content water & your kettle & brewers are easy to clean/descale, then carry on. But bear in mind, high mineral content water usually also comes with high bicarbonate, which can flatten acidity and make the body seem overly chewy. I personally like to use very soft water at home for brewing, using a steel/glass kettle, because I like the taste & clarity (~GH 20mg/L & KH 20mg/L as CaCO3, such as Deeside, or Voss but it's very expensive, or a mix of Zerowater & tap). At work, or visiting friends & relatives, I use regular N Surrey tap water (hard). I still get some very tasty brews here, especially with long steep immersions. As an example of difficult water to brew with, I found the water in Menorca very hard to get a decent drip brew & had to use some bottled Estrella I, which is similar to Highland Spring in make up & the softest water I could reasonably find there.
  4. Hi All, I'm looking for a sanity-check from forum folks, and any insights from existing users (or those knowledgeable in) water softeners and filters... I live in a hard water area (Shropshire) and experience high levels of scale in a kettle after just a couple of weeks use. I filter drinking water via a BWT jug (for improved taste) and use Volvic in my coffee machine. As part of a full-house renovation, I'm looking to protect our new household appliances from scale build-up (kettle, dishwasher, etc.) and also improve drinking water quality (my wife doesn't like the taste of the tap water - but it's fine after filtering). I'm currently looking at a whole-house softener on the incoming supply, with an additional in-line filter for a drinking water tap in the kitchen. It would be great if the filtered drinking water could replace Volvic for the coffee machine, but this is not essential. I should also mention that we are on a water meter, so need to be mindful of waste. So, a few questions: 1. Is a softener sufficient to reduce scale build-up in appliances, or would an additional scale reducer (e.g. electromagnetic device) be needed as well? 2. Would pre-softened water impact the lifespan or effectiveness of an in-line drinking water filter? 3. Can anybody on the forum share their experiences of living with a whole-house water softener? (pros/cons/issues) I'd appreciate any insights, recommendations, or general feedback.
  5. I had been interested in an alexia evo but on checking the manual the company do not encourage or give instructions for descaling and I suspect it would invalidate the warranty They suggest using softened water and you shouldn’t need to descale. what do others do? do you use volvic or alternative or use water filters or just descale regardless? Am thinking of moving from a bean to cup to a fairly future proof machine and thought the alexia looked a good option Thanks for any advice on this
  6. Anyone seen these 2 versions around £500 or so! If filters well, it looks like be hard to fill a jug say to add to espresso machine. https://virginpure.com/
  7. Hi all, I am looking to use tap water here in Dublin, Ireland to brew with. I have some questions about my water filter and water parameters here in Dublin which I have been told is soft water. I currently have a HMA filter set up with which I use to filter my tap water for drinking. It has 3 filters, a sediment filter down to 1 micron, a PCB-10-CM carbon filter which removes chlorine and chloramines and the 3rd filter which is a pentek carbon filter. I have used this water to supply my aquarium but thought I could use it with my tap water to use in an espresso machine. Water profile: Colour (Hazen)................................................ Turbidity (NTU).............................................. pH................................................................... 7.5 - 8.5 Conductivity (µS/cm)....................................... 140 - 150 Chloride (mg/l)................................................

My PH is at 7.5 so on the higher side. I am within the SCAA adequate brew zones. Thanks for any advice, Simon.
  8. The subject of espresso machine water tanks is rarely discussed and unfortunately sorely misunderstood by manufacturers and consumers alike. I'll list a few misunderstandings 1. Wash the water tank every 2-4 weeks 2. Building a machine where you cannot remove the water tank without significant machine disassembly, so much so they never get washed and end up turning from white to brown (you know who you are) 3. Water tanks can be washed out with warm soapy water (rather like warm fluffy clouds) 4. Users believe manufacturers The water tank should be removed and washed weekly, every month it should be cleaned with Milton or similar, leave the tubes in the tank for this...but don't put Milton through the machine, which should be off. Lastly, for some reason users think the tank should be filled to the brim so they don't have to fill it more than a couple of times a week or even once per week for their 1 coffee per day. Noooo...don't do that. You fill the tank appropriate for your usage. If you have to fill the tank each day even if you fill it to the brim....fantastic. However with a dual boiler and not using the machine as a kettle, with a minimal warming flush of 30 ml, you are unlikely to use a full tank per day, based on most machines tanks holding from 2 to 3 litres. Just because your tank holds 2 or 3 litres, does not mean it requires you to fill by that amount, fill with an amount that means you have to fill it once per day and see how that goes, because you'd like the water used to brew your coffee to be fresh wouldn't you? Not having sat in the tank at 30+C for a week.....
  9. Only recently, after a few misadventures with an Aqua Optima filter, have I realised the need to fill my Fracino Cherub with bottled water. Most of the talk on the forum seems to be about Volvic or Tesco Ashbeck (which I can't find here in Wales - just a locally-branded Tesco own brand alternative). However, what about Asda's offering? As I understand it, the critical variables for reducing scale are calcium and dry residue. Asda's own brand seems better than Volvic or any others I've seen in that regard - calcium is only 13mg per litre and dry residue 92mg. Is this the best bottled water for espresso?
  10. https://www.sevenmiles.com.au/editorial/the-science-of-perfect-water-for-coffee/ Interesting article/podcast uploaded recently. Unlike some previous "studies" they actually measured the concentrations of flavour compounds extracted in espresso. Would like to see more of the data and methods behind this but is interesting nonetheless. I'd also be interested to know the sensitivity of human tastebuds to the amounts of these flavour compounds (e.g. is going from 14 to 18 on their "nutty/chocolate" scale actually perceivable to a human?)
  11. Hi All First post from a long time forum browser! I've struggled to find a definitive answer to this question: Will a BWT filter jug (or other brand) reduce the hardness of London water enough for a HX espresso machine? Currently using Ashbeck and getting sick of the waste. Plumbing a heavy duty in-line filter isn't an option. Thank you in advance for any help.
  12. So... i finally tested my water with one of cheap testing kits. I know my water is hard/very hard - and it indicates 250 ppm, so probably in the right ballpark. The bottled water i use (forum recommendation - not this forum or country though!) looks closer to 500ppm!!!!!!! Might be time to change water and maybe descale the machine after 12 months! Have been trawling the forum and the internet and it seems a toss up between: 1) 5-Stage RO for £150 (£35 filters/membrane). 2) £110 for a Claris Ultra kit (2500L cartridge for £65) ... or BWT/3M equivalent. Questions and concerns i don't have a succinct answer for: - Is RO water good for coffee? I'm no super-taster, but i seem to recall reading the almost total absence of minerals is bad. But then i read the opposite... - How often does one change that £35 filter set in the RO? - BWT/Claris/3M cartridges. I recall reading that if they'r not used every couple of days they need to be flushed, or binned if not used for a few weeks. But never on any official documents. True? Any insight much appreciated
  13. Recently moved from Edinburgh to South London and struggling with a solution for my dual boiler. I don't want to continue buying bottled water due to the plastic waste. Renting so I can't plumb in my own filtration system. I know a Brita filter just doesn't cut it in these 'ard parts. Can't find a shop that sells RO water by the gallon, except expensive high volume delivery services. Was hoping to find a cafe that I could fill up a jug at every 2 weeks or so. Would be happy to buy a coffee at each refill to support the cafe. Haven't had any luck at the places I've visited so far. I appreciate it can be a challenge for them due to plumbing/liability issues. Anyone know a cafe that might help me out, or can suggest a different solution to the problem? Any help much appreciated.
  14. We use the usual recommended bottled water for our machine but for the kettle we use a Brita filter jug, and for drinking we use distilled with Celtic salt added. Our water here here is VERY hard. The kettle is showing signs of scale within weeks of cleaning it despite changing the Brita filter every 3 weeks. And I am just not enjoying the drinking water as much as I was when we had Hildon bottled still water. My aim aim is to have as little plastic waste as possible, to have a clean kettle, and to know I’m not glugging a load of rubbish in my drinking water. If it could go in the L-R then it would be a bonus but as we don’t use a huge quantity then I can live with bottled for that. Plumbing in isn't an option. Would something like this be any good - has anyone got something similar? https://www.amazon.co.uk/AcalaQuell-Reservoir-capacity-Filtration-Technology/dp/B01BJ9AQFY Or a jug system with better filtration? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Epic-Water-Pesticides-Industrial-Pollutants/dp/B01FRRN9YY Advice welcome, and thank you in advance
  15. Hi folks, I'm not sure if this is of interest since a majority of people seem to hold a good understanding of the mineral contents of waters, and how mineral wreak havoc on coffee equipment -- but I certainly didn't have as much of a clue, and spent an hour this afternoon collecting the mineral content of common UK bottled waters. I'm aware there's a big debate on the ideal composition of water etc. for flavour, but perhaps the following table is of use to someone: [TABLE=class: grid, width: 1377] [TR] [TD]Water Source[/TD] [TD]Calcium[/TD] [TD]Magnesium[/TD] [TD]Potassium[/TD] [TD]Sodium[/TD] [TD]Bicarbonate[/TD] [TD]Sulphate[/TD] [TD]Nitrate[/TD] [TD]Chloride[/TD] [TD]Dry Residue[/TD] [TD]pH[/TD] [TD]Hardness[/TD] [TD]Source[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Ashbeck Natural Mineral Water[/TD] [TD]11mg[/TD] [TD]3.5mg[/TD] [TD]2.5mg[/TD] [TD]10mg[/TD] [TD]25mg[/TD] [TD]11mg[/TD] [TD]15mg[/TD] [TD]14mg[/TD] [TD]85mg[/TD] [TD]6.2[/TD] [TD]41.5mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Volvic Natural Mineral Water[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]8mg[/TD] [TD]9mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]74mg[/TD] [TD]9mg[/TD] [TD]7.3mg[/TD] [TD]15mg[/TD] [TD]130mg[/TD] [TD]7[/TD] [TD]62mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]essential Waitrose still natural mineral water[/TD] [TD]18mg[/TD] [TD]4.5mg[/TD] [TD]0.8mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]39mg[/TD] [TD]17.5mg[/TD] [TD]7.8mg[/TD] [TD]26mg[/TD] [TD]110mg[/TD] [TD]6.7[/TD] [TD]63mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]essential Waitrose still natural mineral water (MildredM Sample)[/TD] [TD]20mg[/TD] [TD]6mg[/TD] [TD]2.5mg[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]61mg[/TD] [TD]14mg[/TD] [TD]23mg[/TD] [TD]16mg[/TD] [TD]122mg[/TD] [TD]6.7[/TD] [TD]74mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Nestle Pure Life Water[/TD] [TD]27mg[/TD] [TD]10.5mg[/TD] [TD]3.5mg[/TD] [TD]35.3mg[/TD] [TD]211.8mg[/TD] [TD]9.2mg[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD]7.6mg[/TD] [TD]273mg[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [TD]109.5mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Highland Spring Still Water[/TD] [TD]40.5mg[/TD] [TD]10.1mg[/TD] [TD]0.7mg[/TD] [TD]5.6mg[/TD] [TD]150mg[/TD] [TD]5.3mg[/TD] [TD]3.1mg[/TD] [TD]6.1mg[/TD] [TD]170mg[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [TD]141.65mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Stockwell And Co[/TD] [TD]38mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]3mg[/TD] [TD]8mg[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]5mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]219mg[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [TD]143mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]ASDA Smart Price Still Spring Water[/TD] [TD]38mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]2.5mg[/TD] [TD]8mg[/TD] [TD]135mg[/TD] [TD]14mg[/TD] [TD]5mg[/TD] [TD]12mg[/TD] [TD]219mg[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [TD]143mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]ASDA STILL Natural Mineral Water[/TD] [TD]40mg[/TD] [TD]14mg[/TD] [TD]3mg[/TD] [TD]6mg[/TD] [TD]166mg[/TD] [TD]10mg[/TD] [TD]8mg[/TD] [TD]11mg[/TD] [TD]228mg[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [TD]156mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Harrogate Still Spring Water[/TD] [TD]46mg[/TD] [TD]13mg[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]42mg[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]26mg[/TD] [TD]1mg[/TD] [TD]58mg[/TD] [TD]N/A[/TD] [TD]7[/TD] [TD]167mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Buxton Natural Mineral Water[/TD] [TD]55mg[/TD] [TD]19mg[/TD] [TD]1mg[/TD] [TD]24mg[/TD] [TD]248mg[/TD] [TD]13mg[/TD] [TD]0.1mg[/TD] [TD]37mg[/TD] [TD]280mg[/TD] [TD]7.4[/TD] [TD]213.5mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sainsbury's Caledoniann Still Water[/TD] [TD]60mg[/TD] [TD]16mg[/TD] [TD]2mg[/TD] [TD]15mg[/TD] [TD]240mg[/TD] [TD]28mg[/TD] [TD]6mg[/TD] [TD]11mg[/TD] [TD]255mg[/TD] [TD]7.4[/TD] [TD]214mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sainsbury's Water, Basics[/TD] [TD]54mg[/TD] [TD]20mg[/TD] [TD]4mg[/TD] [TD]68mg[/TD] [TD]300mg[/TD] [TD]22mg[/TD] [TD]1mg[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD]420mg[/TD] [TD]7.7[/TD] [TD]215mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Evian Natural Mineral Water[/TD] [TD]80mg[/TD] [TD]26mg[/TD] [TD]1mg[/TD] [TD]6.5mg[/TD] [TD]360mg[/TD] [TD]12.6mg[/TD] [TD]3.7mg[/TD] [TD]6.3mg[/TD] [TD]309mg[/TD] [TD]7.2[/TD] [TD]304mg[/TD] [TD][link][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Glacéau Smartwater Still[/TD] [TD=colspan: 3]NO INFORMATION AVAILABLE[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD]N/A[/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Excel file available at: https://1drv.ms/x/s!ApUH5V8ysTJv5FVVcWPhfbb_Qaf6

  17. I have seen this Stockwell and Co water sold by Tesco at 17p for 2 ltrs is it ok for using in Sage barista express?
  18. hi all People on here were super helpful with problems a couple of years back, so posting again.. I recently descaled my Gaggia Baby (after leaving it a bit too long for a hard water area). It was fine before the descaling. The descaling went fine, but now I have an issue with almost no water flow through the filter holder apparatus. It will just about make a coffee, but takes about 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds, and I'm worried it will give up altogether. Water seems to be escaping back into the water reservoir, as you can see bubbling in it as the machine is straining to produce a few drops of coffee. What to do? Thanks :-)
  19. This one I have generally used following comments and advice on the forum, currently we are away from base. ASHBECK. This is option one. And option two. If I was only to consider based on Calcium it would be an easy choice, but it's how the other constituents play a part. Jon.
  20. Ok, so I recently joined the forums looking to improve my coffee. I predominantly drink filter coffee using a Melitta Therm Look IV using pre-ground coffee (I know, I know, I'm a beginner, what can I say!). Realising my best option to improve the flavour without splashing out on a new Brazen Plus, would be moving over to beans and grinding them myself, so, thanks to recommendations from here, I have purchased a Wilfa Svart grinder which should be with me on Monday/Tuesday. I like the idea of a V60 or Chemex but realistically would prefer to keep the brewing process as simple as possible hence the filter machine. I put the machine on, walk the dog and get back to fresh coffee before I start the days work. So I am now looking at what else I can do to improve it, which led me onto water. I have checked the water hardness for the area, which is rated as Hard, 115.2 Ca mg/l, 288 CaCO3mg/l (whatever that means). I have no idea of the TDS. I am thinking of using a Brita or BTW filter jug as I would prefer not to use bottled water from a conservation side of things. Now, I have no clue as to what I have just told you about my water, or what filter would be most suitable and I'm wondering whether anyone would be kind enough to point me in the correct direction before I buy something totally unsuitable! I have added the report from Southern Water if that helps anyone, it just confuses the hell out of me!! ZH524.pdf
  21. At work on an offshore rig I got two water options. From tap, which is produced on the rig, and bottled water. The tap water is no good, so I'm using bottled water. I'm not too happy with the water quality though. Brews made with the same beans I use at home tends to be more acidic and overall less great. I brew V60. Is it possible to add something to the bottled water to potentially improve the quality of my brews? I know some people make their own brew water with distilled water and some minerals. If the bottled water is low in minerals or the balance is off somehow, would it be possible to add some minerals to it?
  22. Hi all, I've got the following back from our water supplier and just wanted advice on how best to proceed for decent brew water. I have access to distilled or deionised if required. Calcium 84.5 mg Ca/L Magnesium 5.9 mg Mg/L Sulphate 19.1 mg SO4/L Sodium 12.4 mg Na/L Chloride 42 mg Cl/L Bicarbonate 173.8mg HCO3/L Alkalinity 142.5mg CaC03/L Thanks, Joe
  23. Evening all, One area I've never got to grips with is water composition, so advice on the water I'm now stuck with using (unless it's so bad that I install a filter at significant expense) would be really helpful. Primarily after reassurance it's not going to knacker my Nuova Simonelli, but any tips on what it will do to the taste (and any straightforward things I could do to counteract this) would be really appreciated too. Picture of label attached, but some key numbers. (mg/l) TDS 108 PH 6.7 Calcium 7 Magnesium 2.33
  24. Long time lurker, first time poster. Current setup is a gaggia classic about 6 years old and going strong paired with a massively overkill mazzer mini e grinder. The classic has the opv set to 9 bar and running the Silvia steam wand. Wondering if the classic is not long for this world as the pump is making different and somewhat disturbing noises. Also curious about using bottled water. Volvic seems to get mentioned a lot. Wondering why?

    RO system

    I want to try Xpenno's SodaStream water method but don't have access to RO water. Would this work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Compact-Reverse-Osmosis-Aquarium-Tropical/dp/B00A4EP2BO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1462717843&sr=8-2&keywords=reverse+osmosis ? I'm only going to be using it for 10L a week.
