[Homeroast] Distilled H2O

Problem with bottled water is FDA has no standards for water.  They 
don't consider water a food, yet all food contains water.  Point is 
there is NO testing done for bottled water.  Anyone can start a company 
bottling any water they choose.  You would have to get a lawyer to find 
out if the water is really from the spring they say it comes from.  
Also, those plastic bottles they put it in will leach PCBs and other 
chemicals into your water when sunlight hits them.

Where I live, water comes right out of the well, totally unprocessed, 
but it contains so many minerals and things, it doesn't bond to coffee 
like pure water does.

> Depends on how good your tap water tastes (whether or not you filter it) or if you use bottled natural spring water as I do for my espresso machine.  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.
