Top Commercial Water Filters for Coffee Machines

The aroma and taste of coffee depend on many factors, including the quality of coffee products, the grind of the roast, the equipment used, and the level of the barista's skills. However, all this can quickly depreciate due to inappropriate water, which is the basis of all drinks. What's more, it also affects the longevity and performance of accessories and espresso makers, as the scale is the primary cause of expensive machinery to fail. In this case, commercial water softeners and specialised water filters for coffee machines are necessary to dramatically reduce the loss of business resources and maintain the highest quality of the barista's work.

Preparing Water for Espresso Machine

Correct preparation of water for an espresso machine is as essential as proper roasting and grinding of coffee beans (as amended that the quality of the coffee product is less critical for the operation of the coffee equipment). This nuance is especially true if you use tap water to be thoroughly cleaned from mineral salts and impurities. Commercial water filters are great at removing harmful particles of heavy metals, chlorine, and bacteria. It is the primary preparation required for any drinking water, regardless of the application.

Next, you need to adjust the hardness of the water – the content in the liquid of hydrocarbonates and carbonates of magnesium and calcium. This step is critical for the water used in espresso, as soft water interacts better with the coffee particles and therefore better reveals their taste. Commercial water softeners do a great job. The products trap ions of harmful particles, regulating the pH to the ideal level and minimising limescale formation inside the espresso machine.


Bottled Water VS Commercial Water Purification Systems

Purchasing ready-to-use bottled water is an excellent alternative to barista's routine maintenance of commercial water filtration systems. However, this option is better suited for home, office and small coffee shops where the amount of coffee brewed justifies the hassle of supplying and changing bottles. On the other hand, for mass production and large businesses, where professionals create a diversity of coffee drinks every day, installing commercial water purification systems is a more practical and convenient option. 

Besides, mineralisation and impurities in the water are essential when it comes to commercial water filters selection. Each type of coffee is unique and provides specific requirements for the composition of the water to unleash its full flavour potential. On the other hand, the bottled water is more consistent. In turn, commercial water softeners and coffee machine water filters allow baristas to adjust the mineralisation level according to their preferred characteristics. Thus, the purchase and maintenance of commercial water purification systems are more expensive, but it fully pays for the quality of freshly brewed coffee. Additionally, the market offers many inexpensive products for home use, far more beneficial than the constant use of bottled water.


Tips for Using Commercial Water Softeners

Integrated commercial water softeners and sachets contain a resin inside that traps heavy calcium particles, preventing them from accumulating on the surfaces of the coffee machine. The effectiveness of these products is fantastic if baristas follow a few simple rules:

  • Change commercial coffee machine water filters regularly, depending on the hardness of the water used.

  • Rinse the water filters for coffee machine with running water and soak for ten minutes before installing to remove the resin smell & taste.

  • Try to prevent the water from being boiled again and heated above 100ºC.

  • It is wise to purchase multiple commercial coffee maker water filters for individual tanks for multi-boiler espresso machines. The steam boiler tends to get hotter over 100ºC, and it needs to be serviced more often.
