Up to 75% of your body is water and over 98% of your coffee is water. Makes sense to rehydrate and re-caffeinate with the best water, doesn't it? Global Customized Water specializes in customized water for large commercial coffee operations, and they've developed this easy-to-use water treatment solution for home coffee creators to enjoy.
How it Works
Create coffee's ideal balance of mineral water by adding both capsules to a gallon of distilled water. Shake up to mix thoroughly and then use as normal in your espresso machine, coffee maker or other coffee gear (such as coffee presses or pour overs).
Can you please give a breakdown of the final numbers when this product is added to distilled water? TDS, Ca hardness, total alk, pH, sodium, etc.

Best Answer:I didn't test all aspects. The ph was neutral around 7-7.5. Hardness was about 0 grains from what I could see. I was getting better tasting coffee from Crystal Geyser than from this to be honest. Felt like I kept getting under extracted coffee from this.
I'm thinking of storing my water for brewing in a half gallon glass container, with the formula mixed in at 200% concentration, then diluting it with my RO water 50/50 at the time I use it. This would be much easier than using a gallon container to mix the solution. Do you see any problem with this plan?

Best Answer:Bad idea. I tried exactly what you suggested and it resulted in a thick buildup of (calcium?) powder on my glass containers. I asked certain coffee geeks whether the 200% solution was the culprit and a chemist answered affirmative. After dropping the concentration to 100%, the glass remained clear month after month.
I don't see why that wouldn't work just fine. I don't think the solution needs to sit after mixing for any length of time. As long as the ratio is right when you brew your coffee. I use a gallon glass container that has a spigot at the bottom that I keep in the refrigerator.
Best Answer:It might, but it is not going to be effective in bringing out the flavor of stale coffee. Since Keurig style pods contain coffee that is not freshly ground, you may not notice any difference.
Coffee is 98% water so I believe AB Formula would improve it no matter how it's made. I use a French press with freshly ground beans and have tried different several types of water but AB Formula always brings out the most flavour in my coffee.
Works well with fresh roasted high quality beansReview by barkingburro
This product was a revelation. It brought out a wider range of flavor, with greater fruitiness in medium to medium light roasted coffee. I had used different brands of bottled water, finding that Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood was right: too much carbonate or chloride buffering will rob a good roast of its fruitiness. I prefer my coffee well-balanced, with plenty of roasty flavors (chocolate, caramel, nuttiness, etc.) as well as fruity top end (citrus, plum, strawberry, etc.). Using this product always made my coffee better, more vivid, tastier, and more complex. It will also bring out the truth in your brewing technique. (Posted on 6/11/2016)
Perfect WaterReview by Ellie
This makes perfect water to brew coffee or tea. You must use reverse osmosis water (that's what I do) or distilled water NOT tap water. It adds the perfect balance of minerals for great tasting coffee or tea. I've used it for years. I keep a glass gallon container with a spigot in the refrigerator. I also use a French Press, and the freshest highest rated coffee beans I can find. (Posted on 1/29/2015)
Not my best cupReview by hopshlooken
If you have made coffee with pure water and not liked the result, you may not like this product. I am used to hard water, which has high alkalinity (softening doesn't remove alk). This counteracts the acidic nature of coffee.
This product made coffee that is very bright and astringent. If you like that, it should be fine. (Posted on 6/25/2014)
