I didn't see another specific thread for this, so thought it might be worthwhile posting. Maxwell has put a kickstarter live -with his collaborators - which is intended to help filter tap water to use with coffee at home.

 

 

Sounds interesting and it would certainly be nice to reduce the bottles that I'm going through.


Everything my heart could desire (more or less). . .

@jlarkin - thought this was due up tomorrow, so thanks for posting a link.

Per my comments on the other current water thread (sufficiently unrelated), my views are similar re plastic bottles

Better be quick if you want the early bird starter pack. I'm #71/100!

Hope it can handle the London chalk solution.

I’ve backed it too! Living here in Scotland, thankfully that’s less of an issue.

I honestly don’t know how you guys do it - if I lived in England I’d be installing a water filter to my water supply to the house. Ruins your skin!

Only a £2 saving anyway. Just do the £20 one so £22 in total

I think it's too late for the early bird backing but pretty sure you can still back it, it'll just be £20 rather than £18 :)

Early bird starter back with 12 filters is mighty tempting. Thanks for posting about this.

Definitely good to reduce plastics.

That’s the one I’ve gone for - if you’ve committed to the jug, might as well commit for 2 years you know!

Did no one here think about asking questions. The facility is there on the site, but it is a big fat zero so far?

 

First off; these bicarbonate busting resins, what are they made of?

 

Well marketed, but not a lot of substance, though I agree about city to city variance, even within city variance, and then here in Leeds and over to York. I do respect the effort that went into 'water for coffee', but for me I think a work top jug filter is another dispatched into the cupboard solution. I cannot get out of my thoughts that if a filter has a 'working life' it must also have a sweet spot, beyond which it is not as good (either side). Trouble would be identifying that sweet spot I guess, and spending more time than just tasting the coffee.

Having asked a couple of questions, I understand they’ll be adding an in-depth FAQ tomorrow (the answers I got were positive enough to make my mind up about pledging) - which will hopefully help to allay some valid concerns

I’m not a kickstarter member yet so can’t ask questions.

 

Could someone please enquire on the volume of water that each filter should process? I guess the four “power” levels of filtration will impact effective lifespans, so likely one filter will process 25-250 litres, say?

 

The difference in price between a single filter and a 13-filter package is £60 for 12 extra filters, so at £5 per filter (presumably a discounted Kickstarter price??) is a lot of money and needs to filter at least 25 litres to even match Ashbeck’s price.

 

Very interested in the concept but don’t want to hamstring myself to what could be one an expensive and niche system.

They estimate that the 13 filter pack will last 2 years.

@rob177palmer

 

I asked a not dissimilar question - so I’m confident the FAQ will answer it when it’s added to the page

I wonder whether the jug would be any good for soft water that doesn't have much minerals which is the problem I am facing. At the moment I am using a epsom salts & bicarbonate soda solution to fix this but it's a hassle and not that straightforward.
