Our Story

Mitte was founded with a pioneering spirit and visionary aim: To improve lives with better water.

Meet Mitte

The water we drink, as essential to life as the air we breathe, is increasingly unsafe and impure. Chemical spills, unprotected water sources, contaminated supplies, severe weather changes, and chronic pollution all pose significant challenges for maintaining safe drinking water.

As people dive into different potable water options, the plastic bottled water industry generates mind-blowing levels of unsustainable waste at a staggering rate while conventional home water systems are often ineffective and inefficient.

The regulations and solutions out there are uncertain, unreliable, and unpredictable.

In late 2015, Moritz met Faebian, and the pair bonded over a shared vision to make water better. Determined to find a way to make water safe and mineralized for everyone and revolutionizing the way we drink water at home in the process, Moritz and Faebian founded Mitte.

Human-centered design
Inspired by nature’s water cycle, our process is led by a holistic users-first approach. Our machine not just looks beautiful, but is also extremely user friendly and durable.

We believe in honest designs; every machine part is functional and essential, there is nothing more and nothing less.

Our commitment to society
Helping change lives with water

We believe everyone has the right to safe water, yet almost 663 million people worldwide lack access to it. We’ve made it our goal to help change this by supporting Water.Org.

For every liter of Mitte water that you drink, we will make a donation to help change lives – at no extra cost to you. Together, we are helping Water.org bring safe water to the world through access to small, affordable loans.

Be part of our efforts to help transform millions more.
