    No water is the same. Between different purification processes and varying mineral contents, the search for the best water to brew coffee with can be a daunting task. That search is now over.

    The Espresso Profile is the water that you want to put in your espresso machine. Coffee is 98% water so using high quality water makes a big difference in your cup. Using Third Wave Water not only gives you more delicious espresso, but it also protects your machine from harsh minerals and chemicals. The Espresso Profile works with semi-automatic and automatic espresso machines such as the Breville The Dual Boiler™, La Marzocco, Rocket, Rancilio, as well as manual espresso brewers and machines such as Leverpresso, La Pavoni, and Olympia.

    Just add one capsule of Third Wave Water to the appropriate amount of distilled or reverse osmosis water to achieve the perfect mineral combination and get brewing delicious coffee. Designed for optimal coffee flavour through a precise blend of Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium with just the right amount of Bicarbonates and NO Chlorides.

    • Each pack includes 12 capsules
    • Each 1 Gallon capsule treats 4 litres (1 gallon) of distilled or reverse osmosis water for a total of 48 litres per pack
    • Each 5 Gallon capsule treats 19 litres (5 gallons) of distilled or reverse osmosis water for a total of 227 litres per pack 
    • Blend of Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium

Working well so far; tastes good, and theoretically better than tap water. But water wastage...

I have used about 20L/5G of Third Wave Water in my Rancilio Silvia so far. I confess that I have not done any side-by-side comparisons of taste, as it is a hassle to change out the water tank and get a consistent shot. However, I like the taste of my current shots, and I like knowing that this water is theoretically better for coffee. I have not experienced any issues, and my espresso tastes great. The only downside is one that is not really avoidable: I now spend a lot of time thinking about wasting this comparably expensive water. Now when I am purging the group head, temperature surfing, or thinking about decalcifying the machine, I am keenly aware that this water is more expensive and should be conserved as much as possible, which I wasn't worried about with filtered tap water. The solution was simpler with normal brewing: I have two kettles, one for third wave water and one for filtered tap water used to rinse filters etc. I am not aware for a comparable solution for my espresso machine. I suppose less water is required for espresso, so on a cost per cup basis, it may actually be comparable to brewing. I will probably continue to use third wave water for the time being, but especially if I can find a suitable way to either filter tap water, buy the water outright for cheaper, or make it myself, I will explore those options. This isn't really a problem with third wave water specifically, but an issue with more expensive water in espresso machines. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

Worth it!

I live in a rural area with hard water. Too hard for my Linea Mini. Distilled or reverse osmosis is “better”, but in actuality too soft (corrosive). So, I’m using Third Wave because it protects my espresso machine better than my other options, but it also does taste better too. Only wish they sold a 12 pack of the “5 gallon” boxes. It’s expensive...

Worth the Hassle!

Didn't realize this was a thing until the great folks at Eight Ounce introduced me to it. Definitely makes a difference to the taste of my Espresso. My only regret is it means that I'm buying 1 Gallon jugs of distilled water, and I hate thinking about the environmental impact of that....Otherwise, these are great!

Excellent and easy

I was told about this product from the gentleman that I buy coffee from. Been using it over a year now and have told others how much better coffee tastes and how easy it is!

Excellent

After using this stick with RO water, I felt that I was tasting what the roaster meant for me to taste. It was one of those “why didn’t I do this earlier” moments.

Better coffee

This is the first thing I would recommend to anyone interested in getting into coffee or wanting better tasting coffee. Even before buying better beans, a new machine, French press, etc. Third Wave mixed in distilled water will make even Folgers taste exquisite.
