What water can I use as a base for Lotus Water?

Distilled or reverse osmosis water is best but you can also use low ppm (< 10) tap water. Another option is to use something like a Zero Water Filter to remove the minerals from water. Please note that not all water filters are created equally and many do not filter out a significant portion of minerals in your tap water especially as they are used. 

What is the shelf life of Lotus Water?

Lotus Water is shelf stable but we still recommend to replace your concentrates within one year after opening. The high mineral concentration and sanitization of the bottles prior to bottling means that it is unlikely for any bacteria growth to occur unless your concentrate becomes contaminated. If at any time you observe the water to be cloudy or contaminated please discard that concentrate. 

Is Lotus Water okay for use in espresso machines?

Espresso machines use different materials and finishes, as such, users should always default to the water recommendations made by their espresso manufacturer. Our espresso recipes specially use magnesium in place of calcium to limit the possibility for scale and limit the amount of chlorides in the water to reduce the potential for corrosion. To summarize, our espresso recipes are well within the water specifications for most espresso manufacturers but there is always a risk for damage to you machine regardless of what water you use. 

How much minerals does each drop add? 

When dosing into the provided mixing bottle each drop of calcium and magnesium adds 10 ppm as CaCO3 and each drop of potassium bicarbonate or sodium bicarbonate adds 5 ppm as CaCO3 of alkalinity.
