Meet the Founder

My name is Arby Avanesian, and I am the founder. It's my personal opinion that improving one's brewing water is one of the most impactful avenues for improving the resulting coffee and tea.

(See our World Class Testimonials!)

Over the years, I've come to the conclusion that at great detriment to the community, the main impediment to quality has been a lack of access to truly fantastic brewing water. I did my best to avail the situation by providing free, open-source recipes on my blog, Empirical Tea.

However, my DMs soon began to be flooded with requests to buy my water recipes for personal use. That was when I realized that not only was I not alone in wanting an easy solution for good water, there was a legitimate functional void to fill in the community. I found myself at the right place and time, already having a particular set of skills and being asked to use them. So I did!

Enter empirical water, the natural culmination of years of dedication to the craft.

empirical water is my offering to all the other folks out there who are so unnecessarily serious about specialty brewing. I hope you'll give my creations a chance to knock your socks off.
