Soma

Water Filtration Carafe

Pure Pour

The Soma water filtration system includes a carafe and filter. But unlike plastic pitchers, the innovative Soma vessel is artfully designed with German engineered, shatter-resistant glass, and the filters are organic and compostable. It keeps water fresh and clear, with the added benefit of being elegant enough to serve at the dinner table.

Soma founder Mike Del Ponte envisioned a water filter that was beautiful, easy to use and made of sustainable, plant based materials. He enlisted the help of water expert David Beeman, who designed filtration operations at Starbucks, Peets and Coffee Bean. Together they formulated the Soma filters with Malaysian coconut shells, an all natural solution that naturally screens chlorine and other harmful chemicals.

The carafe has a minimalist hourglass shape, with no bulky handle. It’s sized to fit ergonomically in your hand and comfortably inside the refrigerator. This water pitcher is as crisp and clean looking as the water it pours.

    Hi Everyone!

    Meredith from The Grommet Discovery Team filling in for Soma. As the tester of this product, I came to love its elegance when set on a table. The carafe is something you will be proud to put on display when you entertain guests. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Hi - do you know if the filter removes floride?

    Hi Suelynn,

    Thank you for your question. The Soma does not remove flouride, but this is a great suggestion for Soma as they continue to innovate water filtration. Thanks!

    How much water does the carafe hold? How much are replacement filters? Thanks!

    Hi Marianne,

    The carafe has a 48-ounce capacity. You can always find that information in our details section by clicking the "Buy" button above. At this time The Grommet is not offering the replacement filters, but the filter it comes with should last you about 2 months. We hope to add the filters in the future. Thanks!

    @Meredith Thanks, Meredith! Do you know where I could get replacement filters?

    Will this filter purify water? That is trap bacteria within the filter. If so, what is the smallest micron size it will trap? Finally, when you pour out the water into your glass, does the filtered water travel back thru the filtration medium? ERNIE H.M.

    Hi Ernest,

    Thank you for reaching out. The water does not go back through the filter when you pour. Soma is meant only for microbiologically safe drinking water. I have asked Soma to provide us with the specifics on the smallest micron size the filter will trap. Stay tuned!

    @Meredith In a word no. It says it meets NSF/ANSI 42: Drinking Water Treatment Units - Aesthetic Effects

    NSF/ANSI 42 establishes the minimum requirements for the certification of POU/POE filtration systems designed to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (chlorine, taste, odor and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water.

    The scope of NSF/ANSI 42 includes material safety, structural integrity and aesthetic, non-health-related contaminant reduction performance claims. The most common technology addressed by this standard is carbon filtration.

    So, no it only makes the water more "ascetically pleasing", it will not filter out bacteria, microbes and viruses.

    @William Thanks for your info. So would I be correct in assuming that this does not filter out heavy metals either?

    Hi William and Ru,

    The Grommet team wants to ensure that we relay proper information here so we are getting in touch with Soma to ensure you receive an answer very soon. Stay tuned.

    Nice alternative to plastic! This reminds me of the old drip coffee makers with the hourglass shape. Could this be used to brew coffee too? - that is, can it be used with boiling water?

    Hi Robert,

    The Soma wasn't designed for this purpose and the team here didn't test it in this way. Therefore, we wouldn't be able to recommend using the Soma for coffee or hot liquid.

    If you can't buy replacement filters, what good is the pitcher?

    Hi Kathleen,

    At this time The Grommet does not sell the replacement filters. The filter it comes with will last you for two months. When Soma begins selling the filters individually we will most certainly add them. Thank you.

    Are there any carbon or sulfite based materials used in the filter?

    Hi Samantha,

    The filter is made from a coconut shell carbon. There is no sulfate in the filter.
