[Homeroast] Distilled H2O vs RO

Good and BAD flavors too.  Too each his own.  And sadly, your beliefs 
do not match the experimental data AT ALL.  There is this nifty thing 
called co-extraction.  Basically, minerals in water, carrying a 
heavier charge than water, can and do actually extract more flavor 
components from your coffee.  It's generally why (and resoundingly 
so) people find coffee brewed with water with mineral content find it 
has 'more body'.  It's not the minerals you are tasting per se, but 
the extra compounds in coffee that it is pulling out.

But as it's been said before, too each his own, and enjoy.
