    I'mma stick to... water
    There is no such thing as "water" in the real world. All kinds of things leach into "water"...Pesticides, prescription drugs flushed down the toilet which is then sent as processed gray water to irrigate farmlands that then makes it's way into underground aquifers and back into potable municipal water. Then there is water hardness...total dissolved solids or TDS. So "coffee water" is a term that recognizes that the coffee beverage is 97% of whatever liquid is used to brew the beverage....and that there should be some interest in knowing exactly what that liquid is.

    There is such thing as Water. All the living things are made out water and it is the base of life.
    however, we still do not know exactly what water is. Some smart guy can say it is made out of atoms that join together to form molecules of 3 atoms, H2O (2 hydrogen and one Oxygen)
    But that is the terms that we gave to classify water.
    There is water but we do not know what exactly it is.

    If I have to answer, it is life and the origin. that is all I can say.

    Well, not only we know exactly what it is, we know how to make it too. Ever ride on a hydrogen bus before? Its exhaust is water: we/bus made it!

    But what kind of water is more tasty or good for coffee is completely subjective. Personally I like zero water/nothing but water.

    I think minerals in water is a hoax: you can get much more of those from food.

    Well, no and yes. There is no doubt that minerals affect the taste of water. In fact, your preference for the taste of water without minerals makes that point. So, as far as taste is concerned, I do not consider minerals in water a hoax. If anyone asserts that you "need" minerals in your coffee water for dietary reasons I would agree that is a hoax.

    There is a lot of research out there that proves your statement wrong. To prove it to yourself - go get a gallon of distilled water - brew one cup/pot with distilled water than one cup/pot with normal tap water. You will taste the difference. Pure distilled water without minerals will result in a bland, dull cup of coffee. Heck, even if you have ever cooked any food in your life you know salt adds flavor - salt is one of the minerals in water that enhances a cup of coffee.

    THE BEST water for making your coffee?

    An old post on another coffee related forum provides a LOT of links to info on the search for the best water for brewing coffee. If you want a lot of information, some misinformation, and plenty of food for thought, click HERE.

    I believe it is a lot deeper than that.
    like we can not define soul/spirit as a brain activity.

    but this is not really related to coffee nor coffee water, so we should stop here.
    I just do not want this to be spun around to something else....
