This is what I have here and it has been operating flawlessly for around 
10 years.  I modified it myself to do variable brew pressure.  The pump 
is still going strong.  We buy pure steam distilled water and refill our 
bottles weekly. I put a layer of calcite on the bottom of the one used 
for coffee. I use a flojet pump to supply pressure to the plumbed-in 
Aurelia. I also use calcite in my water pitcher so that the distilled 
water becomes slightly mineralized and delicious. It is far better for 
coffee than RO and as long as you filter out the other minerals and 
particles from your well water, you won't have a problem.

I can recommend the Nuova Simonelli without any reservation.
