So, from what I gather I have very soft and highly alkaline water. Is this really a problem? I've read it can lead to very flat tasting coffee, and worse, scale build-up. But, what can I do about it besides buying bottled water, like crystal geyser? My googling has turned up many was to soften water and increase ph, but not the reverse. Any suggestions?
For what it's worth, I also have a RODI system that I use for my salt water fish tank, so if there was a good way to add back minerals to that, it would also be an option. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the input. To clarify, the RODI system I have isn't a whole house system, but rather something I plumbed next to the washer in the basement and only use for fish tank water changes. However, I will certainly look into adding a mineral cartridge to the end of the chain for coffee purposes. The only problem is I imagine I would still want to bypass the DI (Deionize) section...
