Pentair Everpure’s 2022 Commercial Coffee Brewer Water Filter System Line Up!

As winter continues to drive folks to the hot beverage side of menu this year, operators are also dealing with some very sophisticated taste buds that are demanding much higher quality. A few years ago, only the most dedicated barista paid attention to the acidity, the body, and balance of the coffee they brewed. But as the specialty coffee industry has grown and customers have learned more about what makes “the perfect cup,” expectations have risen dramatically. COFFEE is 98.7% WATER! How a cup of coffee tastes depends as much on the quality of the water as it does on the beans. The right water treatment system lets operators keep water chemistry consistent across locations and dial in the ideal mix of minerals for brewing. In addition to making sure that you are not ruining the taste of the expensive coffee and tea that you have invested in, the right water treatment system can also increase the efficiency of your expensive brewing equipment while protecting it from dirt, scale or corrosion.

According to the Specialty Coffee Association; For a superior quality extraction of coffee solids, the brewing water should have these characteristics:

CharacteristicTargetAcceptable Range
Odor 1Clean/Fresh, Odor free 
Color 2Clear color 
Total ChlorineO mg/L 
TDS 3150 mg/L75 – 250 mg/L
Calcium Hardness4 grains or 68 mg/L1-5 grains or 17 mg/L – 85 mg/L
Total Alkalinity40 mg/LAt or near 40 mg/L
pH7.06.5 – 7.5
Sodium10 mg/LAt or near 10 mg/L

The Entire Family of Made in America Pentair/Everpure Commercial Coffee Brewing water filters are designed to consistently deliver this “superior” quality water while also protecting expensive commercial coffee equipment. These filters have been changing the taste of coffee all over the world providing clear, fresh, premium quality water for consistently great tasting coffee. Everpure’s unique filters utilize a refined activated carbon to eliminate chlorine taste and odor and other offensive contaminants. These filters also save energy by reducing scale build-up. A proportioned scale inhibitor feed inside each filter dramatically prevents limescale from forming in brewing equipment. New and improved Micro-Pure II media with AgION™ antimicrobial protection inhibits any potential bacterial growth inside the filter. With precoat submicron technology, dirt and particles as small as ½ micron in size are reduced, eliminating health contaminants such as asbestos fibers, Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The Sanitary cartridge replacement is simple, quick and clean, and no tools necessary. Internal filter parts are never exposed to handling or contamination. All of these filters are both NSF/ANSI 42 and 53 certified for health effects.

The only real difference between any of the above precoat filter systems above are capacity and flow, (gpm) gallons per minute. The OCS², (Office Coffee System) is designed for small brewers in commercial office settings and features a 1500 gallon capacity with a ½ gpm flow rate. The BH², (Brewer Hot) filter is designed for all commercial brewers, Bunn, Cecilware, Fetco,Wilbur Curtis, etc. requiring a flow rate of ½ gpm or less and features a 3,000 gallon capacity. The MH² ( Multiple Hot) cartridge is also designed to take care of multiple commercial brewers (Bunn, Cecilware, Fetco,Wilbur Curtis, etc ), with a flow rate of 1.67 gpm and featuring a 9,000 gallon capacity paired with the QC7i head, EV9272-41 or 18,000 gallons when used with a QC7i Twin Head, EV9272-22!

The 2021 Specialty Coffee Holiday Season is Heating Up!

Starbucks is officially kicking off the holiday season with its new holiday lineup, including a brand new sugar cookie latte! For the first-time ever, the company will debut a non-dairy beverage in its holiday lineup, the Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte, which can be either cold or hot. Starbucks is also bringing back its well-known favorites like Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee, Chestnut Praline, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and the Irish Cream Cold Brew. Dunkin’s new drinks include a Toasted White Chocolate Signature Latte and a new White Mocha Hot Chocolate! The Dunkin Peppermint Mocha is also back on the menu this year. Caribou Coffee has three new holiday additions, the Ho Ho Mint Mocha, the Spicy Mocha and for egg nog lovers the Fa La Latte! Dutch Brothers also has three new Holiday additions, the Peppermint Bliss Cold Brew, Hazelnut Truffle Mocha and Glacier Peak Rebel! People don’t want to miss out on limited time seasonal offers and they all have one major ingredient in common, water! Espresso is 85-96% water and that water is extremely important to delivering not only a great shot of espresso but not damaging a very expensive espresso machine. Chlorine can alter the aroma and increases acidity. It also bonds with organics creating an earthy or moldy overtone to the flavor. TDS, (total dissolved solids), can cause poor extraction of the grounds, under extraction leads to weak and sour drinks and over extraction leads to bitterness so taking care to treat coffee and espresso beverage water is extremely important. Regardless of which one is your favorite, operators know and work diligently to make sure that all of these beverages begin with a great shot of espresso. Pentair continues to lead the Industry in taking care of coffee and espresso water quality by working directly with Specialty Coffee Operators and Espresso Equipment Manufactures. Both the Everpure and Optipure product lines deliver proven solutions to help  Operators engineer the water they need to deliver the espresso beverage that meets their specifications. For espresso, that means a softer water that also protects the equipment from both hard water scale and corrosion from chloride. For a superior quality extraction of coffee solids the Statistics & Standards Committee of the Specialty Coffee Association of America has determined the following standards for the water used to brew specialty coffee.

Characteristic Target Acceptable Range
Odor 1 Clean / Fresh, Odor free
Color 2 Clear color
Total Chlorine O mg/L
TDS 3 150 mg/L 75 – 250 mg/L
Calcium Hardness 4 grains or 68 mg/L 1 – 5 grains or 17 mg/L – 85 mg/L
Total Alkalinity 40 mg/L At or near 40 mg/L
pH 7.0 6.5 to 7.5
Sodium 10 mg/L At or near 10 mg/L
1 Odor is based on sensory olfactory determination
2 Color is based on sensory visual determination
3 TDS measured based on a 4-4-2 conversion


The Target is the most desirable point in the Acceptable Range, although falling within the range is considered meeting the standard. These variances are in place to take into consideration real world circumstances, and the target gives the optimum measurement of each characteristic to strive for. For an operator then, the place to begin is with a POE, point of entry standard Everpure water test, DEV7013-73. This test includes the water bottle and lab analysis of 30 contaminants and characteristics. The test usually takes from 7 to 10 days to analyze at the laboratory located in Chicago and the following is a sample of the delivered analysis;

download-3

In order to provide both a superior quality shot of espresso and protect the equipment from scaling and/or corrosion this water would be way out of specification. La Marzocco publishes the following water quality specification for the warranty of there espresso machines;

This water has hardness of 257 ppm and chlorides of over 308.8 ppm   so the recommendation would be an Optipure BWS reverse osmosis system to actually take the mineral and chloride out of the water and deliver water with the correct specification of both TDS, total disolved solids between 90ppm and 150ppm and chlorides of less than 3o ppm in order to protect the machine from corrosion.  The size of the unit is determined according to the amount of beverage water that will be needed at peak operating time within the facility.

Optipure BWS Systems include;

These systems can be sized to fit one piece of equipment or all of the coffee, espresso, beverage, etc..equipment that you are using to insure that the water you are using will protect your equipment from whatever changes occur within your water supply and provide the perfect water and ice for your beverages.

Filter Pure Systems, Inc., Everpure, Pentek, Shurflo, Holiday 2021 Lead Times!

Excessive Lead Times;

For the past several months, we have been experiencing longer than normal lead times with all of our manufacturers. The extended lead times have been attributed to a number of factors that are currently happening worldwide and not just in the United States.

Materials used in most all manufacturing plants globally are in critical low supply and the distribution of goods has slowed dramatically for last several months causing longer delays than expected on shipments to be delivered. Instead of days or a couple of weeks we experienced in the past for deliveries, those waiting periods are now turning into several weeks and months.

For the time being and in the foreseeable future, it is recommended that product ordering should not be a last-minute decision. If you use or are needing replacement water filters, new filtration systems or any other filtration products, please order those items as soon as possible and do not wait. The longer you wait, the longer the lead times.

Please call us directly at 800-942-7873/813-626-9600 or email us at info@filterpure.com for pricing and availability.

The importance of Hydration in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic!

Our bodies are made up of 60%  water which is why staying hydrated and re-hydrating is so important. Water is in every cell of our body. It is used by our major organs, such as our kidneys, liver, heart and brain. Hydration is also key to regulating our core temperature, and dehydration can exacerbate an existing fever. Small losses in body fluid can cause body temperatures to rise. The amount of water needed to stay hydrated has gone up from the typical 8 glasses a day that was typically recommended, “Our bodies need quite a bit of hydration every day. For women, 2.7 liters about 11 glasses of water. For men, about 3.7 liters, about 16 glasses. Staying hydrated also means healthy membranes, when we cough, sneeze and just breathe, membranes in our nose and mouth eliminate bacteria. Moisture helps heal the broken membranes so additional infectious organisms can’t enter the body. A high quality source of drinking water in your home is one of the best ways to ensure that you and your family stay hydrated and healthy. Utilizing the same technology used around the world in restaurants and coffee houses, Pentair Everpure brings superior filtration into your home. Everpure commercial grade water filtration systems reduce contaminants that affect water taste while preserving the valuable minerals and vitamins naturally found in drinking water. Pentair Everpure can provide peace of mind with clean, great-tasting water in your home.

If you tour the kitchen at a world renowned restaurant, you’re very likely to see the Everpure name. We’re the industry leader that professional chefs trust most for excellence in water filtration. They love our ability to remove the impurities that make water taste bad, while preserving the valuable trace minerals that create refreshing flavor. A commercial grade Everpure system takes away all sorts of unpleasant substances – and even some unhealthy ones – that may be in your tap water:

  • Particulates that leave a bad taste or odor
  • Chemical substances that may affect health and add unpleasant tastes and odors
  • Bacteria and viruses that can cause illness
  • Limescale that damages your expensive water-using appliances

Everpure filtered water lets you drink, blend beverages, and cook with confidence.

  • Better tasting coffee and tea
  • More appetizing food – chlorinated water can cause cooking water to taste odd, which can affect food, such as pasta. Chlorine also can affect food color.
  • Tastier homemade bread – chlorine can affect yeast, which is a particular problem in sourdough recipes.
  • Cleaner fruits and vegetables – washing produce in filtered water prevents contamination with chlorine and related byproducts. Even washing salad in chlorinated water can have negative effects.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer urges water limits due to Covid surge and the use of liquid oxygen in the treatment of Orlando water.

The Mayor of Orlando asked residents on Friday, August 20th, 2021 to stop watering their lawns and washing their cars for at least a week, saying water usage needed to be cut back because of the recent surge of Covid-19 hospitalizations. The Orlando Utility Commission treats the city’s water with liquid oxygen and supplies that ordinarily go toward water treatment have been diverted to hospitals for patients suffering from the virus. The city-owned utility typically goes through 10 trucks of liquid oxygen a week but its supplier recently said that it would be cut back to five to seven trucks a week to accommodate hospitals, said Linda Ferrone, OUC’s chief customer and marketing officer.
