1st installation kit..... 'HERO'
'Hero-R' is now called 'Hero'. And added to the range is Hero+ which is described further below.
'Hero' is our new premium water seasoning system that incorporates 2 x different BRITA professional filters plumbed in series.
They work together to attract CATIONS from the incoming water.
BRITAs' Quell cartridge is 1st inline and exchanges incoming Total Hardness (Cations) with Hydrogen, The adding of Hydrogen Ions to the water reduces the PH level down off highs (approx 8.3@25 deg C - HK water) to lower levels close to even lower than basic. This variable parameter (PH) is adjustable to aid further tuning (extraction hence taste).
BRITAs' Finest cartridge receives the seasoned water out from Quell. It strips back further CATIONS (e.g Ca & Mg) through Ion exchange with NaCl. Total Hardness levels are further reduced. This type of water chemistry helps minimize scale whilst at the same aid coffee extraction for delicious results.
The filters both contain activated carbon reducing Chlorine levels in the water just before use.
With the above occurrences, espresso extraction is optimized with significant enhancements to the flavor notes of coffee.
With regards to the above figures, conditions do apply as water supply systems can vary between areas and piping to some sites contain unwanted elements that influence the water readings.
Please, therefore consult us for further information and to talk about the water at your location. We have systems setup and operating for inspection at our Roastery & lab facility and also have mobile equipment for onsite tests & demonstrations. Call us to make an appointment.
