DCILY x PUR Clean Water Contest

09.29

Happy National Coffee Day! Yesterday I posted about the importance of clean, quality water when brewing your coffee. Today, thanks to PUR water, you have a chance to win a new PUR One-Click Faucet Mount for yourself, so that you can brew the best possible cup at home. Here’s some more info about the prize on the line:

PUR’s new line-up of one-click faucet mount filtration systems make getting clean drinking water instantly from the tap easier and more convenient than ever before. The first and only faucet mount design that not only installs in one easy click, but offers up to 100 gallons of great-tasting drinking water with just one click. It removes 99.9% of microbial cysts and reduces many other contaminants – just snap it on, and drink it up (especially the next time you brew that pot of coffee). The PUR faucet mount system also has a space-saving design that offers consumers a swiveling head and quick disconnect feature that helps move the filter out of the way when needed.

So here are the rules:

Beginning today, September 29th through Midnight (EST) on Friday you can enter for a chance to win (US residents only, sorry guys!).

For every new PUR Facebook fan, we will donate 10 liters of clean drinking water to children in the developing world! Also, 1 System = 1 Week: For every PUR system purchase, one week of clean drinking water is provided to a child in the developing world.  To-date, PUR partnered with the Children’s Safe Drinking Water program (CSDW) to provide 2 billion liters of clean water to children and their families around the world.

So enter to win clean water for yourself and your coffee, but more importantly, help provide clean water to those who need it most. Good Luck!

Quality water equals quality coffee

09.28

Tomorrow is National Coffee Day, so what better way to celebrate than with a tip about an often overlooked way to improve the quality of your coffee and a contest to help you do just that. The coffee we all love so much is roughly 99% water, which means the quality of the water used to brew it, drastically affects the quality of the end product.

The water you use is very important to the quality of your coffee. Use filtered or bottled water if your tap water is not good or imparts a strong odor or taste, such as chlorine. If you are using tap water let it run a few seconds before filling your coffee pot. Be sure to use cold water. Do not use distilled or softened water. –The National Coffee Association

The Specialty Coffee Association of America even has standards of acceptability for the water used to brew the highest quality coffee possible. Now the last thing I would do is advocate using bottled water for making coffee—that’s ridiculous—however, I would suggest filtering what comes out of the tap.

I use to have a filtered water pitcher, but I left it behind during my recent move. Thankfully, PUR was kind enough to send me one that clicks easily onto my faucet. This means no more pitcher refilling and easy access to quality water, making sure all the coffee I brew is equally as good.

Check back tomorrow for the launch of the contest and all the details on how you can win your own PUR One-Click Faucet filter.
