    There is already talk about gold , and I would like to return to the topic of water and how it affects the taste of coffee.

    I was always interested in the question of whether water affects the taste of coffee. I conducted a study and learned that both hard and soft water affect the taste of the drink, and make it worse.

    Coffee will become bland if you use hard or mineralized water. However, too soft water for coffee also does not add flavor to the aromatic drink. You need to choose something in between.

    I conducted an experiment with distilled water. I know that there are people who specifically buy a water distiller for the house (by the way, there are a lot of models to choose) and like to make coffee with it. I also bought, cleaned the water and made a cup of coffee. The taste was strange. But all right, it means we’ll just drink clean water, and for a coffee machine I'll buy water in gallons.

    have you ever had coffee with distilled water?

    Yes, thank you for not bring up GOLD matter :+)
    honestly speaking, NOT YET.
    but perhaps I can buy a distilled water and experiment it vs RO water that I use for my coffee methods.
    I think that I can do it today...

    Honestly speaking, anything involves "taste" can't be called a "study", unless you specify how many people you tested like A and how many like B, what percentage each.

    Also you have to test the water right before it touches coffee, the source alone is irrelevant because anything can happen in between. Many new machines, like Krups and Jura, have water filters built in. You have to convince them those are useless if you can still taste the same water you put in.
