The two variables that have the biggest impact on your coffee are the coffee beans themselves and the water you use to brew them. Lotus Water allows you to craft water that can increase the desirable flavours in your coffee and mute the undesirable ones. Each kit comes with four ingredients and a mixing bottle. Using our recipes here on the website you can explore the different flavours of a single coffee by changing the mineral balance of your water. 

One bottle can mineralise up to 95 liters of water (assuming SCA target hardness of 70 ppm) with magnesium hardness. Each kit contains enough concentrate to make up to 450 litre of mineralised water. 

Magnesium:

Magnesium is our preferred source of hardness for medium roasts and is great at increasing the body and mouthfeel of coffee while also adding complexity of flavour. Magnesium is an ingredient in Lotus Water recipes as well as many roaster water recommendations. 

Details:

Ingredients: distilled water, magnesium chloride

1 drop of concentrate in 450 mL of water adds 10 ppm as CaCO3 of magnesium hardness 

Calcium:

Calcium is our preferred source of hardness for light roasts and great at accentuating the fruit notes in coffee while maintaining a high degree of clarity. Calcium is an ingredient in Lotus Water recipes as well as many roaster water recommendations. 

Details:

Ingredients: distilled Water, calcium chloride

1 drop of concentrate in 450 mL of water adds 10 ppm as CaCO3 of calcium hardness 

Sodium:

Sodium bicarbonate is used to add alkalinity to water which serves as a buffer to acidity. Sodium bicarbonate is an ingredient in Lotus Water recipes as well as many roaster water recommendations. 

Details:

Ingredients: distilled water, sodium bicarbonate

1 drop of concentrate in 450 mL of water adds 5 ppm as CaCO3 of alkalinity

Potassium Bicarbonate:

Potassium bicarbonate is used to add alkalinity to water which serves as a buffer to acidity. Potassium bicarbonate is an ingredient in Lotus Water recipes as well as many roaster water recommendations. 

Details:

Ingredients: distilled water, potassium bicarbonate

1 drop of concentrate in 450 mL of water adds 5 ppm as CaCO3 of alkalinity
