Aquasana Celebrates 25 Years of Providing Cleaner, Healthier Water

Leading water filtration brand marks 25th anniversary milestone with steadfast commitment to improving the health and wellness of homes across the country

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Aquasana, a leading maker of high-performance water filters for the home, is proud to commemorate 25 years of innovation, expertise and an unwavering commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of U.S. households with cleaner, healthier and better tasting drinking water. To celebrate, Aquasana is giving away 25 prizes – worth up to $449.99 in value each – via social media to mark 25 years of excellence, along with significant savings of up to 58% off the company’s countertop, under sink, and whole house water filters at Aquasana.com. Starting today through the end of September, visit @Aquasana on Instagram to enter for the chance to win one of the 25 prizes, including the award-winning Clean Water Machine, Shower Filter or new SmartFlow™ Reverse Osmosis.

“Our very first product, the Aquasana shower filter, was born from a father’s quest to help soothe his son’s respiratory illness, which was exacerbated during bath time,” said Derek Mellencamp, General Manager of Aquasana. “Twenty-five years later, we remain laser focused on finding newer, more effective ways to protect American families from potentially harmful contaminants in their home’s water. From becoming the first water filtration brand to achieve NSF certification for reducing PFOA/PFOS in 2016, to this year’s launch of our SmartFlow™ Reverse Osmosis which reduces the broadest range of contaminants in Aquasana history, we’ve been at the forefront as new contaminants emerge and remain iron clad in our dedication as we look ahead to the next quarter century.”

Concerns at the tap are climbing, and it’s no wonder given the growing frequency of water crises in news headlines nationwide, including PFAS hotspots, train derailments, lead contamination, natural disasters, and the omnipresence of microplastics. It was recently reported that an estimated 45% of the nation’s tap water contains the “forever chemicals” known as PFAS. Additionally, the EPA recently announced that nearly a tenth of the nation’s drinking water service lines contain lead. According to Aquasana’s recent fifth annual Water Quality Survey, concern over drinking water quality in the U.S. has more than doubled over the past two years to 70%, and nine in 10 Americans (91%) now filter their drinking water at home.

“As we always say, installing a water filter is an easy and effective way to instantly improve the overall health and wellness of a home,” added Mellencamp. “Concerns about our drinking water will continue to compound as emerging contaminants like PFAS, a diverse group of 10,000+ chemicals, become more pervasive. Thankfully, awareness of water quality issues and contaminants in the U.S. has grown significantly since 1998. Over the past few years, we’ve seen more and more Americans choosing to protect themselves from potentially harmful contaminants by using a water filter at home.”

Over the past 25 years, Aquasana has been at the forefront in protecting U.S. households from emerging drinking water contaminants, from chlorine and chloramines, to lead, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and pesticides, and now PFAS and microplastics. Following the shower filter, the company developed its high-performance Rhino® whole house water filtration systems, along with its advanced Claryum® filtration technology for under sink and countertop systems, which removes bad contaminants while preserving the beneficial minerals in water, including calcium, potassium and magnesium. In 2019, Aquasana introduced the first whole house filter certified for the reduction of lead, cysts and PFOA/PFOS. Today, Aquasana offers a full array of whole house, shower, and drinking water filters for the home, including under sink and countertop systems that are tested and certified to remove up to 99.99% of 90 contaminants, including chlorine, fluoride, arsenic, lead, pesticides, PFOA/PFOS, microplastics and more.

Edelweiss Coffee in Iron Mountain, Michigan Celebrates 19 Years of Growth with Support from Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea

Edelweiss Coffee, an independent coffee shop in Iron Mountain, Michigan, is celebrating 19 years of continuous growth. Owners Jenni and Tom Wender attribute part of their success to support from Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea, an award-winning coffee roaster and coffee business consultant.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Coffee entrepreneurs Jenni and Tom Wender are celebrating 19 years of success as owners of Edelweiss Coffee in Iron Mountain, Michigan. This independent coffee shop is renowned for its distinct drive-thru-only setup and coffee that always satisfies.

“I would absolutely refer Crimson Cup to anyone opening a coffee shop. The product and training have met or exceeded any expectations I ever had. The support was unexpected and has been extremely helpful to me over the past 19 years. ” – Jenni Wender, Eidelweiss Coffee, Iron Mountain, Michigan

“We focus on providing the highest quality products at competitive prices,” said Tom Wender. “We’re the place where quality meets quick service.”

Jenni Wender said the couple has built their success on doing things the right way for the right reasons. “It’s a blend of exceptional customer service and serving a top-notch drink. Our customers may pop by for just a moment, but in that time, we strive to give them the best. We’re always bustling, always caffeinated, always ready!”

The Wenders opened Edelweiss Coffee at 201 Ridge View in Iron Mountain in August 2004. They attribute the shop’s continuing success to its unique operation and support from Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea, an award-winning coffee roaster and coffee business consultant.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Edelweiss Coffee’s 19th anniversary and the incredible journey they have had,” said Crimson Cup Founder & President Greg Ubert. “It has been an honor to support Jenni, Tom, and their team every step of the way. We are committed to empowering independent coffee shops and sharing our passion for exceptional coffee.”

Ubert set up the company’s 7 Steps to Success program to teach entrepreneurs with little or no coffee experience how to open a coffee shop.

Based on his book, 7 Steps to Success: A Commonsense Guide to Succeed in Specialty Coffee, the program has helped over 300 entrepreneurs in 30 states start and run independent coffee shops serving their local communities. Many Crimson Cup customers like the Wenders have been thriving for 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years after opening.

7 Steps coffee shop startup consultants assist entrepreneurs in everything from writing a coffee shop business plan to training employees and marketing to attract new customers.

“I would absolutely refer Crimson Cup to anyone opening a coffee shop,” Jenni said. “The product and training have met or exceeded any expectations I ever had.”

“The support was unexpected and has been extremely helpful to me over the past 19 years. Whether I need help with equipment or how to prepare a beverage, Crimson Cup has already done it and can help me.”

“The coffee is the best,” she added. “Customers tell us all the time, ours is the best coffee they’ve had, and significantly better than chain store coffee! If they are visitors, they make sure they get our coffee when they’re in town. College students can’t wait to get back to Edelweiss. And our regular customers are the most loyal of all.”

Tom said he counts on Crimson Cup to provide products that will make the best coffee drinks around at a reasonable cost. “They’ve made a lot of changes during the last 19 years, but I just stick with their recommendations, and I have never been disappointed,” he said.

Thinking about opening your own coffee shop? Tom offered this advice:

“Make the coffee shop your full-time job. Believe in yourself and your business plan.”

“Especially in your first year, consistency is king. Put personal flair on the back burner and prioritize a standard approach to preparing drinks. It ensures every cup is as memorable as the last. Imagine running your coffee shop like a franchise – everything is done a certain way every single time!”

Jenni said she thought the independence of being her own boss would be the best part of owning a coffee shop. “But it really has been getting to know so many customers.”

The Wenders invite everyone in Dickinson County and the Michigan Upper Peninsula to pick up an exceptional latte, mocha or other beverage at Edelweiss Coffee. The shop at 201 Ridge View in Iron Mountain is open 7 days a week. To learn more, visit the shop’s website.
