Besides a great grinder and fantastic technique, one of the most important factors in great coffee and espresso is the best quality water your can get. Sure you could go Brita... but how about going even better? How about a filter system that has been described as "the world's most sexiest water filter pitcher"!
The Mavea Elemaris XL water filter is German designed and has a built in computer that keeps track of your filter use and informs you when it's time to change filter. The lid design is very advanced, and it even has a rubberized handle and feet for no slip usage.
Three packs of the filters for this pitcher run $22, and are available here.
