    Always filter water for any home usage. I've moved around too much to install systems, but always have pitcher filters which are cheap to maintain and easy to use/clean. HomeDepot for the pitcher, but Amazon has the same stuff online with reviews... Good luck on finding something for you!

    Here in Portland, Oregon our water source is snowpack runoff via underground lava tube springs. It is so soft and mineral-free it could almost count as distilled. It makes great coffee and I have to add a little mineral content when brewing beer.

    When I visited my folks in Mexico I took my hand grinder, pour over, and some top shelf, freshly roastedd, whole bean. I struggled with poor results for two days, when I remembered that the city water (Mazatlan) comes from a desalination plant and the home water system uses filtration, UV treatment and a heavy dose of softening agents.

    I made coffee with bottled water and voilą, great results ala Portland.
