Roaster Guild: There's something in the water – results

Some interesting results from each region. Auckland tasters seemed to follow the science, preferring water with the lowest alkalinity and hardness, with group rankings getting steadily worse as hardness and alkalinity increased. However, Wellington and Christchurch both favoured their own city’s water (is it what they’re used to, or was the blind tasting not-so-blind after all?) and NZ Natural bottled water scored well with all tasters.
