    What's more important, a good grinder or a good water filter?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm new around here, this is my first thread. I thought I'd just introduce myself by running a question by you guys to see what you think.

    I've been really getting into coffee over the past few months and love my french press. The two best investments I have made so far are in my burr grinder and my water filter, but I'm torn as to which one actually made the most difference to the taste of my coffee!

    What do you think? Which is more important to you, a decent grinder or good water?

    Cheers

    I's say get a good grinder and buy bottled water if your local supply isn't that good.

    99% of your coffee is water. A good filter is a good investment. Ofcourse it is nice to have a good grinder but it is possible with a cheap grinder to get good results. Not easy but possible.
    If you have a good grind but still bad water, coffee will not taste.
    But I like Eldub's solution

    I'd say grinder, since most water supplies are fairly decent. Even good for teeth...well depending on water supply.

    The problem here is you can't just simply say what's more important. A good grinder goes a long way at achieving consistency which will affect the over all quality of the coffee you will be drinking. At the same time water is the bulk of what you will be drinking and if your not filtering at the top of your game pollutants will creep in and ruin the taste.

    I think the thing for people to understand is in the short term using tap water and a blade grinder is a good start. But for those who will be long term drinkers who demand more from their cup need to go the extra mile and add a better grinder and water filtration to the list. These are the items required to make a good cup of joe.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Both are important and have their own advantage.

    the major portion of cup of coffee is water, so its better to have good water if your watere suppply is not too good, but having nice grinder is also not bad. so dont worry and just enjoye the combination fo both becuase both are good.
