The World of Coffee 005

When customers contact us about our products, we always listen.
“I bought a package of my favorite Maruyama Coffee beans,” one customer told us, “but they don’t taste the same when I make a batch at home.”
We needed to know why.
First off, we wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with the beans.
We had the customer send the beans back for a tasting, but we couldn’t find any problems in the product—the roast was perfectly fine, as was the quality of the beans. There was nothing wrong with how the customer had brewed the beans, either.
After eliminating a wide variety of possible causes, we finally located the source of the problem: the water.
Our customers weren’t the only ones picking up on the differences.
We’d been noticing some taste variation among our different store locations, too.
We knew that we had to get our water from a source that could help our coffee live up to its full potential.
Enlisting the help of water experts, we held meeting after meeting
and taste-tested over 60 types of spring water from across the country
until we found our perfect match: water from Azumino, a city in Nagano Prefecture.
Water is the basis of any cup of coffee.
Enjoy your Maruyama Coffee the way we envision it to taste:
with water that brings out all the delicate aromas of the beans as faithfully as possible.
That’s exactly what “Maruyama Coffee Standard Water” does.

「丸山珈琲の店で飲んで気に入って豆を買ったのに、家で淹れるとだいぶ味がちがう」
そんなご意見をいただいたことがありました。

ところが、豆を送り返していただきテストをしても焙煎や品質、お客様の抽出方法にも問題が見当たらない。原因を探ると、どうやら水の違いがコーヒーの味に大きく影響していることが分かりました。
もともと丸山珈琲の店舗間でも味わいが微妙に変わることがあるという疑問を抱いていたこともあり、丸山珈琲のコーヒー豆のポテンシャルを表現できる水を探すことに。

水の専門家を招き、ミーティングを何度も繰り返し、全国60種類以上の天然水でテストをした結果、最終的に長野県安曇野の天然水が選ばれました。
味の基準となる水だから、名前は「丸山珈琲の基準水」。
丸山珈琲がイメージする味わいを、繊細な風味・特性まで最も忠実に表現できる水です。
