The Best Commercial Coffee Brewer Water Filters are Made in America!

Commercial coffee brewers are working overtime in 2017 as more Americans are drinking coffee, a reversal of four years of declines, as gourmet brews continue to gain in popularity, according to a recent National Coffee Association (NCA) report. All of these wonderful Specialty Coffee beverages are approximately 98.7% water so the contribution that a high quality water filter makes of both protecting expensive commercial coffee brewers and delivering clear, clean delicious water cannot be understated and all of us have more than likely tasted the difference it can make. According to the Specialty Coffee Association; For a superior quality extraction of coffee solids, the brewing water should have these characteristics:

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


6.5 – 7.5
Sodium 10 mg/L At 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 filters is 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.
