Bill Hall, Google Review

Every pot of coffee I brew using this water comes out consistently delicious. Their certified pure drinking water really helps you detect the varietal flavors of the beans, which will make any java aficionado happy. I.B. ClearWater is truly the best water store in Imperial Beach!

Great place for superb water in I.B.
