Food Safe (NSF 61?) Pipe Availability

I'm looking to make a contraption for an espresso machine that's under a cabinet whose water tank is not easily accessible.

I'll need food safe rigid pipe and some 45 or 90 deg elbows. Does anyone know where I might be able to find some in the GTA?

Well, regular copper pipe is food safe, of course, and it's good enough to supply water into our homes, so supplying the espresso machine with water from a hidden tank should be the same.

Does it need to be stamped NSF 61 certified?

Ice maker lines, both plastic and stainless work for water as well. CPVC is used a bunch at our cottage and is water safe.

I’d tee off a water supply line and run 1/4” to it like an ice maker with a convenient valve.
