    What is the best water to use for espresso?

    Long time on the M/B......... I'm a lurker, but getting back into Espresso/Cappuccino...(decaffeinated)
    I've been wondering, what is the best water to use for espresso?
    Filtered tap water, bottled water distilled water ph index
    Is less TDS water (total dissolved solids) better? (%)?
