One of the main reasons that coffee house drips taste so much better than the ones you make at home is the water. While not often talked about, using quality water for your coffee can make a bigger difference than fancy grinders, pour over systems or exotic beans. It makes sense if you think about it: the average cup of coffee is 99% water and 1% plant matter. The Peak Water filtration jug was just launched on Kickstarter and aims to bring coffee house caliber water to your home. The Peak jug uses a maze-like filtration path that forces water through filters while removing unwanted trace chemicals and achieving a balanced pH level. In addition to that, the design is sleek and minimal and would look great on any countertop.
