Or, rather than making everyone suffer through "water dressed in
brown" masquerading as coffee for the sake of the one person who
doesn't like the flavor of coffee (or perhaps the flavor of rancid,
overroasted stale beans), you should make it proper strength, make an
explanatory sign, and provide an accompanying pot of hot water for
people so inclined to use to dilute the coffee to their preferred
potency.  Then everyone can have a chance to enjoy the coffee.
