Minimum order $250 for wholesale pricing

Volume Discounts

For wholesale customers who wish to increase their margin and reduce their costs, we offer a volume discount of 10% on orders over $1000 in value (before shipping and taxes)

This discount applies to your entire order (excluding shipping and taxes), with some exceptions. The following exceptions are in place because of tight margins, reducing our ability to offer larger discounts.

We strive to keep our prices as low as possible, and on a few of products it is impossible to offer further discounts on the wholesale price. Rather than increasing the wholesale price for our smaller customers, we prefer to keep pricing accessible to everyone. In essence, the wholesale price is equivalent to a 10% discount, but is available to everyone. We have reduced the prices on some wholesale products to reflect this.

Exceptions to volume discounts:

Electric Brewers
Electric Grinders
Nut Milk Makers
Parts and replacements
DF Grinders
Fellow Ode
Frank de Paula
Getchu Some Gear Canada
Pacific Foods
Peak Water
VAC Coffee
VARIA VS3 Grinders
Weber Workshops

Once your order reaches $1000 you will see what your discount is on each item at checkout. If no discount is listed, it means it is excluded from volume discounts.

Effective February 1, 2024, our 15% discount tier was discontinued and free shipping extended. Please click here for more information.

    The flavour of your water has a direct impact on the flavour of your coffee. The flavour of water is determined by the minerals and other matter present. The content of your tap water largely depends on where you live and how the water was treated. If you live near an ocean your water may have a slight sulfur smell due to the presence of sulfur producing microbes. Water taken from lakes can taste earthy from leftover plant matter and so on. The key takeaway is that any off flavours in your water before you brew your coffee are still going to be there when you're finished making it. Starting with distilled or reverse osmosis water is the best way to ensure you are starting with a clean slate when brewing coffee.

    Potassium bicarbonate is used to add alkalinity to water which serves as a buffer to acidity. Potassium Bicarbonate is an ingredient in Lotus Water recipes as well as many roaster water recommendations.

Worth a try

A convenient and effective tool to dial in water recipes. Good for both building a water profile or dose single brews.

Daniel C. (Lake Forest, US)
Fair price for a great tool

Being able to buy each bottle separate is really nice if you find a recipe you enjoy.

K.W. (Toronto, CA)
Expensive but worth it

Whether the tap water in your area is ideal or not, it's nice to have that extra bit of control over your brews. In a blind test between Lotus Water and tap water, the tap water brew seemed sour and flat by comparison. Personally, I prefer the results I'm getting with Lotus over Third Wave Water, but it is a pretty big cost up-front.
