About Espresso Machine ProfileUpdated 6 days ago

Espresso Machine Profile Use Cases:

This water profile, now called Espresso Machine Profile, is specially engineered for your espresso machines by avoiding the use of water boiler destroying chlorides. It helps protect your machine's boiler while simultaneously providing fantastic shots of delicious espresso.

We recommend using only Espresso Machine Profile in your espresso machine. However, you can also use Espresso Machine Profile for your favorite manual brew method (V60, Chemex, Kalita Wave, etc.)

Espresso Machine Profile, like every Third Wave Water profile, is created with permanent hardness minerals to prevent the buildup of scale in your equipment. Not only this, but it also does not contain any chlorides, which will prevent corrosion from occurring in your boiler.
