Water Filters for Espresso (Expresso)

Espresso Machine Espresso machines put a demanding load on water filters. Just sit down and watch one in any busy coffee shop - the staff rarely stops making espresso through the day - the pace just switches between fast and faster! And even though many modern machines incorporate their own internal water filters, the internal filters are only intended to reduce chlorine. The internal filters do nothing for scale control and are marginally successful with chlorine.

The small brew chamber of a espresso machine is very sensitive to scale buildup caused by minerals in hard water depositing on the internal metal surfaces. The first symptoms are usually inconsistent brew volume and if left unattended long enough, scale buildup will cause your eqiuipment to fail. But the solution is simple - install a filter that's designed to reduce scale and reduce chlorine to almost nothing. In areas where hard water is a problem a external scale reduction filter will easily recover it's own cost many times over with increased equipment service life.

It is extremely important to change your scale reduction filter on schedule. Each scale reduction filter has a rating in grains. Water hardness in the mid-west and mountain regions range from 2 to 4 grains per gallon of hardness while coastal states range from 0 to 2 grains per gallon of hardness. A scale reduction filter will reduce hardness until its capacity in grains is used up then it will just stop working with no reduction in flow.

While any chlorine and scale reduction filter will reduce chlorine and help reduce scale in your espresso machine boiler, we specifically recommend the filters listed below for your machine because they work.
