Waterdrop Is the Official Water Filtration Sponsor of the World Cup Tasters Championship

The WCTC awards the professional coffee cupper who demonstrates speed, skill, and accuracy in distinguishing the taste differences in specialty coffees.
Coffees of the world have many distinct taste characteristics and in this competition format the objective is for the cupper to distinguish between the different coffees.
Three cups are placed in a triangle, with 2 cups being identical coffees and one cup being a different coffee. Using skills of smell, taste, attention and experience, the cupper will identify the odd cup in the triangle as quickly as they can. A total of 8 triangles are placed in each round.

Making Coffee with Filtered Water

Consider the process of making coffee: beans plus water equals coffee. Notably, your cup of joe is approximately 98.75% water, with the remaining 1.25% being soluble coffee fragments.
The water flowing from your taps is a complex mixture of various minerals and chemicals – these components vary with your geographic location and water source. As a result, brewing identical coffee with different waters can yield distinct taste experiences.
Therefore, it is strongly advised to brew coffee using filtered water to enhance the flavor. Waterdrop’s water filtration system is an excellent option for obtaining purified and safe drinking water. Utilizing reverse osmosis, it effectively eliminates almost all contaminants from your tap water, delivering pure water suitable for both cooking and drinking for you and your family.
