Using soft water is vital for your espresso machine, but the minerals found in water are also crucial for excellent tasting espresso. BWT makes their water softening pouches to give you the best of both worlds.
By exchanging minerals that cause scale for magnesium, you can ensure your coffee tastes great and that your espresso machine's internal components remain scale-free. Other water softening pouches use a sodium ion system, which can alter the water's flavor, making it ever so slightly saltier. Magnesium does not negatively impact taste, ensuring that your shots taste as the roaster intended.
