Coffee is 98.7% water

Water Filters

The best beans are nothing without the right water quality! Water filters do more than just remove unwanted dirt and bacteria… they can condition your water to fall within the Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) guidelines for coffee making.

Why use a water filter with your coffee machine ? The answer lies in ensuring that you have the right quality water to make great coffee and that the water will not cause a limescale buildup in your boiler or hot water tubes that will damage your coffee machine.

The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe has set out the parameters for alkalinity and general hardness of water that are required for great coffee. Get these wong and your coffee will taste flat or chalky! You can read more the reasons for installing a water filter here.

Scaling up of boilers leads to poor heat transfer and ever declining water temperature of your coffee and steam, and an all round drop in coffee quality as extraction is affected. 

Ensure you have the RIGHT water filter to enjoy your coffee machine and that cup of speciality blend coffee.

Our Filters

We are the exclusive supplier of Microfilter water filters in South Africa. Microfilter are suppliers to Samsung, Bosch, LG and other leading brands and hold the sought after NSF certification in a number of classes. 

Remove bacteria, CYsts, microplastics and dirt


The FX-10 water filter is one of the first certified by NSF/ANSI in the USA to remove microplastics greater than 1um from drinking water. Microplastics pose an incredible health risk and are found in most tap water. 

This water filter removes bacteria, cysts, chlorine taste and odour and reduces turbidity.

The perfect water filter for soft water areas with a rated treatment capacity of 30 000 litres.



The key to good ice formation, and longevity of ice cubes in a drink, is water quality. Contamination of water leads to poor ice crystal formation and more rapid melting. 

The FX-15 water filter not only removes particulate matter (including microplastics) but bacteria, cysts, chlorine taste and odour and turbidity, leaving your ice, crystal clear!

With a rated capacity of 60 000 litres, your ice machine will produce great ice for a long, long time!
