Are you looking to buy Third Wave Water | Medium Roast Profile - 40L/20 Sachets in Australia?

The perfect water to brew your medium roasted coffee is here! The Medium Roast Profile has double the alkalinity of the Classic Light Roast to help these types of coffee find a better balance between acidity within the pH. Coffee is considered a weak acid, but still requires a healthy level of alkalinity to avoid astringent flavours and unwanted aftertastes. 

This is our recommended water profile for cupping protocols. The Medium Roast Profile provides a perfect balance for cupping anywhere in the world. From farm to cup, this is the magical water profile helping fuel the coffee industry to make sure we all get the best coffee possible.

  • Just add one Third Wave Water Medium Roast Profile stick to distilled or RO water, shake, and use to brew your favourite coffee. Your coffee has never tasted so good!

Why Third Wave Water?

Coffee requires certain minerals in the water to extract the correct flavours the way the roaster intended. The Specialty Coffee Association created a water standard to guide you on what should be in your coffee brewing water. We took that standard and used it as a template to create our Classic and Espresso Profiles to make sure you are getting the most out of your coffee.

Achieve Optimum Extraction

According to the SCA water standard, your water should be at around 150 total dissolved solids (TDS). TDS represents the amount of "stuff" in a liquid. This stuff can be organic matter, minerals, and even some chemicals (depending on where your water is coming from). If your water has more than 250 TDS it will not be able to extract enough because of the high mineral content. If it is below 50 TDS, you won’t get the correct balance of sweetness and body out of your coffee. Think of it like water is "carrying" ions and the less it's carrying the more it will stop and pick things up along the way. If its arms are full it will keep walking. We decided to create the Classic and Espresso Profiles to sit in-between these thresholds in order to get the most out of your coffee.

Reduce Bitterness

The taste of your coffee is reliant on the amount of buffer, or alkalinity, it has. Without enough buffer, your coffee can taste overly acidic and potentially bitter. If it has too much of this buffer, it can taste rather dull or flat, lacking many of the bright flavours that we have grown fond of in specialty coffee.
Dark roast coffee has a tendency to be overly acidic and bitter tasting. For this reason, we created the Dark Roast Profile with significantly more buffer in the form of sodium bicarbonate, which increases the perceived sweetness, allowing the tasting notes of your coffee (caramel, baker's chocolate, nuts, etc.) to be more pronounced.

Balanced Water Chemistry

Third Wave Water is engineered to protect your equipment as well. Your kettle, coffee maker, and other machinery is just as important as the coffee brewed with it, so we decided to create mineral profiles that both improve your coffee's taste and protect your equipment. All of our mineral profiles are created with permanent hardness minerals to prevent scale and are designed to help you experience the tasting notes on your favourite bag of coffee.
