For those who want to make their home brew taste just as smooth as a cup from their local cafe, a company called Third Wave Water has developed a unique brewing solution. Instead of adjusting the flavor of the beans or the equipment used for brewing, the company focuses on the quality of the water being used.
Third Wave Water is a line of mineralization packets that work to improve the taste of coffee. To use the packets, users simply start with distilled water or water from a reverse osmosis system and then add the mineralization packets for the perfect blend of sodium, calcium and magnesium. This water can then be used for brewing the perfect cup of coffee.
Third Wave Water insists that its mineralization packets are key to creating the perfect cup by pointing out, "Coffee is 98% water, so don't ruin your morning creation with the same water you flush your toilet with."
