Subject: Primo water for coffee..
 

Has anyone heard of the premium water brand "Primo water"? They come in big machines at local walmarts and super markets. I'm interested in using water from this source, but i'm unsure if the water is good enough to use for coffee. Reason being, it uses Reverse osmosis and other filters to clean the water, and I fear it doesn't still have minerals in it to brew coffee correctly. Any thoughts?

Think RO process takes out all the minerals. I'm getting a Berkey water filter system myself but not ready to buy yet. They filter out all the bad stuff but leave in all the minerals. These sit on your counter and filter using gravity, you can actually filter pond water in these. They cost up front (not horribly $) and filter 6,000 gallons before replacing the minimum 2 filters (3,000 gal per) that come with it initially---then just a matter of replacing filters. The Big Berkey holds 2 plus gallons, will filter about 7 gal an hr if needed, so seems fairly quick to me. I've only seen these online, may ship free (?).

For what we personally use/drink it would pay for itself in a year---beats carrying water in from the store!

I was gonna get a Berkey too, I guess its my only option. That'll save me more money then.
