As you likely know, I have had the privilege of being involved in varying scientific research in coffee in collaboration with experts from various fields. The Project that really kicked this off was Water For Coffee. Water is undoubtedly one of the biggest impactors on a cup of coffees favour and quality. It has been thrilling for all involved to have been able to contribute to this topic in coffee.
We are looking to utilise the global coffee communities interest in the topic to map as much of the worlds tap water as possible.
At the same time we at Colonna we are excited to be working on a device that seeks to improve coffee in peoples homes around the world through altering brewing water in varying amounts depending on the location.
Colonna will be working with Water For coffee in the development of the project.
We would be thrilled if you would take a few minutes to fill out a simple form based on the source water at your location.
To fill out the form you will need a titration test kit and a conductivity meter. You will also need to know where you are…. The book order number is optional. The idea is simple. We would like you to measure the water out of the tap, the water you start with, not filtered water. Utilising a titration test kit we would like to get readings for the bicarbonate content and metal ion content (calcium and magnesium) in your water.
We would also like to gather Ionic conductivity meter readings of the water. Ideally we would like all of the readings for each location but if you don’t have them all that is also ok, We will happily receive the data you can acquire.
The results will be collated and presented for all to see. They will also be utilised by the Colonna water project to develop that product.
