Distilled Water for Coffee, Tea and Other Drinks
Have you been considering using distilled water for coffee, tea and other water based drinks? If you answered yes, then prepare yourself for the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had. If you are a real coffee connoisseur then you likely spend quite a bit on high-quality coffee beans. You might also be using a French press or other high-end equipment so as to get the best flavor possible. Beyond the beans, you should turn your attention to your water. Distilled water provides a clean, flavorful cup of coffee.
Save Money on Coffee Beans
Did you know that using distilled water almost always allows you to use less coffee? The reason is that you are starting with a blank canvas instead of tap water that has hard minerals and other contaminants that throw the flavor of coffee off enough that you have to use more to get the right taste. 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 and who likes waiting in line anyways? Instead of paying over $2.50 or more for a cup of coffee, you could be making your coffee at home. How much would you save every month? The average American spends $1,100 annually at coffee shops.

Are you making your coffee or tea with bottled water? There’s another place you can save money. 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 and we offer financing.
Does Your Coffee or Tea Taste Strange? It Shouldn’t.
Tap water can pick up contaminants in pipes, and have added chlorine and fluoride. If your water tastes sweet or chlorinated, then it has contaminants. Water shouldn’t taste like anything but plain water. 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. If you select a dark or light roast, or if you grind your own beans, or even a dirty coffee pot can make your coffee taste better or worse. Leaving your coffee or tea on a warmer can allow it to continue to cook which will make it stronger or more bitter. The only way to get the perfect cup of coffee is to experiment to find what suits your tastes.
Not only can you use distilled water for coffee, 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
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
