I tried distilled water for drip, and the coffee tasted flat--I have good tap water and I use it filtered for drip.  Never use distilled in an espresso machine, since both auto-boiler refill and tank sensors need a trace of minerals to detect water.

I will just add that I have used distilled water in my Behmor Brazen, in 
my Lelit espresso machine and in my Gaggia platinum vision (and 
aeropress, syphon machine, tea, etc) for over a year and I have had no 
problems. YMMV.
