Perfect water, Perfect coffee...
The question often arises, "Should I use a filter in my new Jura coffee machine?". There are many reasons why it is advisable to do so. First and foremost, it protects your investment. "But I have a system installed in my home" you say. Well that reverse osmosis system, water softener, or cartridge filter may not do what is required to ensure a perfect cup of coffee. Jura say, "the water hardness may fluctuate a lot even if using a descaling system. This is often due to the regeneration quality, which is unknown. What's more, softeners do not remove substances with a smell and taste, such as chlorine, from the mains water."
Coffee contains 98% water. In addition to calcium, minerals and fluorides, the mains water in many areas contains traces of lead, copper, aluminium and chlorine. Water quality and water hardness vary from place to place and depending on the time of day. With the formula Jura have developed, the Jura Clearyl filter cartridges are ideally suited to mains water anywhere.
What is more, the water that has passed through a Jura Clearyl filter is optimized for coffee. Some calcium (hardness) is required for good coffee. That is why distilled water is not recommended. neither is bottled mineral water, since that has high mineral content, by definition.
