  Our society has spent years perfecting the art of coffee—we know everything about different kinds of beans and how they’re roasted, but there’s one crucial coffee ingredient we’ve been neglecting: water. Coffee is 90% water, so why haven’t we been paying more attention to its effect on our coffee? The right kind of water can drastically change the quality of your coffee. It’s not just an ingredient—it also acts as a solvent when it comes into contact with your coffee. Here’s what you need to know. What Water Does Water is absolutely essential for the extraction of coffee flavor itself.

How Sparkling Water Compares to Bottled Water

sparkling water

With the rise in popularity of sparkling water, there are a lot of rumors being passed around—it’s often presented as a familiar alternative to sugar sodas, but is it really just as healthy as regular still water? The Rumors Because of its carbonation, sparkling water has been said to erode tooth enamel, leach calcium from your bones as well as lead to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). So the question is really about the carbonation—is too much carbonation bad? We’re pretty accustomed to thinking bubbly drinks are bad for us, but nutritionists have confirmed that sparkling water is basically harmless. Regular sparkling water is sugar-free and calorie-free, and it hydrates you just as well as still water does. When it comes […]

How to Stay Hydrated While Exercising

We all know that hydration is important and that hydration is especially important if you’re exercising, but you may not know what water temperature is ideal for preventing dehydration and enhancing performance! The Temperature Difference The temperature of your water can actually affect how well it hydrates you. Studies have shown that people drink about 50% more cold or cool water compared to warm water when they exercise, and those same studies show that these people are less dehydrated. Cold water keeps your core body temperature, which allows you to exercise longer. The hotter you get, the quicker you’ll feel the fatigue setting in. People who exercise in heat and humidity have a slower and lower rise in core body […]

Why You Should Ditch Bottled Water

It’s almost second nature to load that bulk pack of water bottles onto your cart at the grocery store. Bottled water is better—so you’ve been told for years, but it has some negative impacts you may not have heard about. We have a few compelling reasons for why you should ditch bottled water altogether. Bottled Water is Not Sustainable The reality is, that plastic bottle will stick around for thousands of years longer than it took you to drink the water. Even with recycling efforts on the rise, six out of seven plastic bottles in the United States are “downcycled,” or sent somewhere to slowly degrade. For the next millennia, toxins from these degrading bottles will seep into soil and […]

What Actually Happens During the Water Treatment Process?

We all know that our drinking water is “treated,” but most of us don’t know how. While drinking supplies in the U.S. are among the safest in the world, water can still become contaminated with water-borne germs such as Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Hepatitis A, Giardia intestinalis, and other pathogens. Every community is different—they have different regulations and processes to treat their water—but here’s what the average treatment system looks like. Coagulation and Flocculation Chemicals with a positive charge are added to the supply of water that’s being treated—these neutralize the negative charge of other things in the water like dirt and other dissolved particles. These particles then bind with the added chemicals to form larger particles, called floc. Sedimentation and […]

You need about eight cups of water each day to keep your body happy and healthy. When you don’t drink enough over time, you can become something worse than just dehydrated.

Here are eight important symptoms to look out for when your body is telling you it needs more water every day. #1: Constant Fatigue We lose fluids in all kinds of ways—sweat, urination, diarrhea, or vomiting—and when we don’t replace it, the blood can become thicker and slower. The heart has to work harder to get oxygen to all of your muscles and […]

Eye-Opening Facts About Water Pollution

While there are many environmental issues plaguing our planet today, one of the most pressing issues directly affecting us is water pollution. Though it’s fairly well-known that this is a problem in most developing countries, we should all be aware that it affects us too.

This includes our oceans and freshwater sources. At this rate, nearly 46% of the world’s population will have to deal with shortages of drinking water by 2050. The main cause of these problems? Humans. According to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program for Water Supply and Sanitation, around 1.8 billion people […]
