Topic: water filter (5 msgs / 130 lines)
1) From: silas coelho
I have been using my expresso maker (Gaggia Classic) for quite a while, but
lately I realize that there are some clear spots on the at the top of
expresso . Looks a kind of 'discoloration', but I'm concerned that it is a
water contamination or soemthing like that (I just use water straight from
the door of refrigerator (My own does have an internal filter).
Is it a water contamination or something else?
 Talking on water contamination, a have some dreams to open a small Coffee
Shop in Brazil (It will take a lonnnnng time), in that case should I have a
industrial filter?If so, what should be the characteristics of this filter?
Hope keep doing well (even with the employment notices around)
Regards
Silas

Silas,
There are a number of ways to answer this question as there are many brands
and company's selling water filter systems out there. Here is a first hand
way to answer it. You can't go wrong with a good water filter system in your
kitchen. No public water is perfect when it comes to all the factors
considered. LIke PH , hardness, softness, mineral content, etc etc. Sooo, if
we want to futher complex this issue we could talk about reverse osmosis
systems to add as well but for paragraph length consideration I will only
say that I own a brand new 2 nuova simonelli aurelia. The company would not
install it without a mim. water filtration system consisting of, first a
carbon filter then in my cast two filters inline. This is what was
recommended. The brand is Everpure. Easy to google. They make all sizes for
consumers and Pro's. Check around you might be able to build your own if
your so inclined.
As to your future coffee shop, stay on track and you will have it
eventually. I started out a homeroaster right here with you. I'm have a shop
now because I stocked and researched the current local and global market. In
your case I that would start with the local where your thinking about
putting it.
If your not careful you could end up like me waking up and bleeding coffee
so bad it is all you talk about 27/7. Just ask miKe M on this list, I just
saw him last night and wished him the best with his next cafe he is about to
open on New years in Vancouver Washington. It's going to be a hell of a spro
throw down bash. Hope to see ;as many of you there as possible.
Sorry to ramble on when all you wanted to know was a not so simple water
filter question.

Silas,
Try buying a gallon jug of filtered water and see if the problem resolves
itself that way.

Ah yes, test first before you make a move. Test test and test again. Some
kind of old rule I'm sure John.
