Creative water for coffee and hot beverages


Truly great coffee is borne out of enthusiasm.  A meticulous dedication and determination to ensure ‘our coffee’ is as good as it can be.

All good baristas realise every aspect from machine to bean has to be right, but only a few understand that truly great coffee starts with the main ingredient – water!

Problend™ from WaterCare Africa is the ultimate in flexible water treatment technology. Problend™ first strips back water to its purest form via a 5-step filtration process, then it allows the user to re-introduce minerals which are beneficial to coffee extraction and taste.


Great Coffee

Exceptional water purification

Great coffee starts with perfect water. Some water treatment systems simply remove most minerals, even if they are beneficial to flavour and extraction. This attitude to treating water can result in dull flavours and a poor crema.

Problend™ puts back some beneficial minerals that allow the intricate, bright flavours of coffee to burst from every bean.

Perfect water from a neatly designed clever, yet compact unit

Coffee is 98% water – so it is absolutely vital that the water used to make the beverage is the best it can possibly be. Unlike most other water treatment systems, Problend™ allows the barista/operator to return some of the minerals to the water that are needed for proper coffee extraction and aroma.

Problend™ puts back some beneficial minerals that allow the complex, bright flavours of coffee to be properly extracted.
