[Homeroast] Distilled H2O- Berkey filtered water

I have been making coffee the past two years with water filtered through a
Berkey filter. We have one at home and one at the office. They make
great-tasting water that tastes like water from nearby mountain springs. The
Berkey removes chlorine and dirt but leaves minerals which gives good water
such a pleasant taste. Further, it greatly improved the taste of my coffee-
much more than Brita filtered water did. As a side benefit, if there is a
disaster and city water is contaminated, the Berkey can filter water from a
mud puddle. The filter is the same as used in backpacking portable filters
on a larger scale.

Just wondering how many on this list brew coffee with distilled water..  
Many years ago, I used to drink mucho beer.  I stopped that and began
drinking mucho coffee, all the time.  I found out getting whole bean and
grinding just before brewing made it better.  Then I found a 'gourmet' 
coffee shop and got better beans.  At that shop, I mentioned using spring
water making it better.  She said try distilled.  There's absolutely nothing
bonded to the atoms yet, so it pulls more flavor from the beans.

I found she was SO right.  Not only that, the health benefits of distilled
water cleansing everything out of your body as you drink it.  
That was in '91 I began using distilled H2O for coffee, then later for all
food prep especially boiled noodles, beans, etc., that normally fill up with
all the stones (minerals) in the condensed boiled tap water.  
Now I can eat heaps of spagetti and never get that bloated feeling.  As for
health, I haven't needed to see a doctor since '91, I'm turning 58 this year
and am far healthier than I was at 38.

Additional benefit, I can have a cup before bed, still sleep like a baby.
