Where I live the water is super hard and most homes have a water softener for general house use and an undersink RO system for drinking.The water thing has been one of the most mysterious/frustrating things about making coffee. Haven’t been able to get RO for a while and seeing scale build up in my kettle now. May switch to mixing with distilled.
What supermang was alluding to is RO water alone will not extract well when brewing. There are minerals in the water that bond with the coffee and release flavors. RO water without the additives creates a flat taste. I use RO with additives to avoid a build up of scale.Where I live the water is super hard and most homes have a water softener for general house use and an undersink RO system for drinking.
Yeah im in it deep (fellow aeropress espresso attachment, nespresso machine, two beans canisters, baratza encore and hario hand grinder, aeropress and a scale). I hadn't wanted a nice kettle because i knew id go: no reason to not have a pourover now....Welcome, it's one hell of a rabbit hole. My recommendation is a scale, they can be relatively cheap and will help you create consistency.
