While getting to know local communities in both Vietnam and Indonesia, we saw first-hand the necessity of being able to have access to clean drinking water every day, irrespective of how developed an area is. In Indonesia, we partner with the Pituq Foundation, providing funds from your coffee purchases. Pituq distributes much-needed water filters to rural communities, which are made in Bandung, a small city in the mountains of Java, the second biggest island of Indonesia. Each water filter provides clean drinking water for about 25 people. The ceramic-charcol filter inside can be cleaned by cooking it in boiling water. Rather than importing water filters from abroad, we prefer to support the distribution of water filters made locally in Indonesia. This has been one of the important factors for us to answer to the question:
"Which water filter is best?"
