What is the Best Water for Coffee?
Should you use distilled water for coffee making? Yes. Distilled water is the best way to make a clean, flavorful cup of coffee. It’s hard to imagine spending extra money on high-quality beans only to pour standard tap water over them. Coffee lovers know that tap water isn’t good enough, so many choose to use bottled water or filtered water, but distilled water has many advantages over other types of water.
Save Money on Coffee
Using fewer beans per cup will save you money. One way you will save is by needing less coffee to create the same strength of coffee. Distilled water is like a blank slate allowing the drinker to focus on the coffee’s flavor, not whatever else might be in the water. In addition to that, you will find that you won’t need to descale your coffee maker as often.
Making coffee at home will also save you money. What if your coffee was the best? Instead of paying over $2.00 for a cup of coffee, you could be making your coffee at home. How much would you save every month?
Stop buying bottled water to make coffee and you will save money as well. Many brands of bottled water simply filter tap water. Why pay for filtered tap water and add to the plastic waste problem? Plus, no one likes lugging huge packages of bottled water from the store every week. Keep in mind that bottled water is more expensive than distilled water. Most Pure Water home water distillers pay for themselves within a year.
Does Your Coffee Taste Bad? It Shouldn’t.
Tap water can pick up contaminants in pipes, and have added chlorine and fluoride. If your water tastes like something, then it has impurities. Water shouldn’t taste like anything. Don’t allow low-quality water with contaminants like pesticides, pharmaceuticals, microplastics, or high levels of magnesium and calcium to ruin your perfect drink or your health.
Other things that can affect the flavor of your coffee are the coffee itself, of course. If you select a dark or light roast, and the quality of the beans makes a big difference. How long you leave your coffee can make your coffee stronger or if it sits on a warmer. If you choose to make your coffee with paper or another kind of filter, the coffee might have more oils in it. The type of coffee maker you select makes a huge difference as well. The only way to get the perfect cup is to experiment to find what suits your tastes.
Not only can you use your water distiller for coffee making, but you can also use it for high-quality drinking water, making ice, cooking, baking, and so much more. Learn more about all of the great uses of distilled water.

Distilled Water is Used at Restaurants
Distilled water saves restaurant owners money and provides customers with a much better tasting cup of coffee, tea or juice. The following is an excerpt from a letter sent from a Perkins restaurant in Eaton, Ohio.
“This coffee test has proven to me that distilled water has a definite place in my restaurant operation as well as in my home. My next step is to start using distilled water in other areas of food preparation. I have already found many other uses for distilled water in items such as tea, juices, carbonated beverages, gelatin, etc.
Thank you for your help. We were hard to convince at first, but now there is no way I could operate without the distiller.” Jerry Beavers, Owner
