Modified water recipe for spring water?

Greetings from Helsinki. This is my first post.

My problem here is distilled water is not readily available for reasonable price, and RO equipment is out of question.

I just received data about bottled spring water, sold near me in 5 liter bottles, stating:

Total hardness 22 ppm
Alkalinity 18 ppm

Now I’d love to ask you knowledgeable members how to adjust this to optimum coffee brewing water.

Hi! This is my first answer here :slight_smile:

My company deals with water treatment. The easiest solution (at an reasonable price) is to use an Everpure filter. There are 2 models which contain resin and activated carbon. So you can use tap water and treat it with a single filter (you only need head and fittings). What you get is a decrease of scale and the removal of chlorine (which make coffee more bitter). If you’re interested I can tell you more.

Best regards,


Hi Hans, I’m interested in this topic because I would like to install an undencounter filter. It’s not the first time I hear about Everpure, but I never had one. Can you please tell me more?

Of course I can, but first I need to know something more. What are the problems? Did you notice anything particular? Bad taste, bad smell, limescale or something else?

Yes, water has a bad taste of chlorine. There is also visible particulate matter, how can I remove it?

Well, this is a really simple problem. You can install an Everpure 4C (with head), I can give you the product link on my site, but there are many other companies that sell it.
Here you can find the filter:
Here the head:
You need then a faucet, you can choose a 1- or 3-way faucet.

Thank you very much! What about the faucets? What are the advantages of having 3 ways?

Hi Sophie, sorry for the wait. Well, the advantage is that you don’t need to make any additional hole in the sink, you just have to replace your current faucet.

Ok, that’s interesting. Thank you. Do you have any suggestions? How’s the quality of your faucets?

Our 3-way-faucets are made in Italy, this is synonymous with quality. Anyway, if there’s any problem you can return them within 30 days. Here some of our best sellers:




Thank you very much :blush:
