I swear you will make the best coffee ever when you have quality coffee and filtered or mountain fresh water.

Something tells me all the bacteria in your mountain fresh water disagree with you...

Absolutely not. Apparently you've not been to Japan.

..Then water is important. Regular tap can be ok, depends on where you live. But garranteed that filtered or mountain fresh water is the best for making coffee. The combination of them makes it best.

Seriously you need to try it. Regular drip is fine for everyday though. I do that. Just never foldgers, maxell house, etc..

about time coffee machines came with "a camera for a QR scanner."

Yes -- along with the Internet, that will make it easier to get rid of troublesome people by 'fixing' their coffee. :shiftyninja:

An 11,000 coffee maker to accomplish the same thing as a $40 french press...

If you live on a mountain, then you really don't know what you are talking about. Claiming that the local water doesn't make you sick is a no brainer and a pointless statement. For everyone else, not so much. The two times I made the mistake of drinking water in the wilderness I got sick from it. Once in Colorado and onces in Austria. Never again. You saying you live on a mountain and its safe is about as trustworthy as a mexican saying the water there is safe.

2 years ago i got a french press for christmas now my mr coffee sits collecting dust in my garage. I only use fresh ground beans (dark roasts) and spring water. Its the Best tasting coffee.

Canned coffee like folgers, maxwell house and yuban all made from robusto beans, which is an inferior coffee bean. Arabica is the best

The video has some valid points. I wasn't talking about bottled water.

But hey, just keep drinking what's good for you. (Y)

Actually he does know what he's talking about. You don't seem to understand that bateria is everywhere. In different areas there will be different variations. So that's why you likely get a little sick from drinking water in other areas. IF you stay there long enough you'll be use to it. I've drank water in different parts of Japan and did not get sick. I did get sick while in Thailand. So it's natural. Other part is it also depends on if there are contaments in the water.

Partly true. Most American coffee is meant to be weak. But then they are not usually 100% Coffee either.

You neglected to point out the most obvious thing: Coffee tends to be made with boiling hot water, which kills most if not all bacteria.

With all the problems we have in this world, this is what they waste time on.

:/

Fair enough, but what are you doing about those problems yourself?

True. If you weren't simply drinking the water. It goes without saying that water is heated to make coffee. Otherwise it would not taste the same.

This is horrible. It looks like an operating table from 1960.

I am so glad that the two shining examples you told of are indicative of everything else in the world. I have never gotten sick off of mountain water, and I have been all over the world in places you cannot even conceive of. I await your troll response.

Lots of coffee machines already do this. The slight variance in temperature between this machine and other commerical machines will approach placebo difference range.

Which is my point. There is no reason to make yourself sick on purpose.

No its not, unless you are using a cheap $5 coffee pot/maker. Most expensive coffee makers use pipes that run next to the heating unit to make the coffee instantly hot. In order to make bacteria filled water safe to drink, it has to have a rolling boil for several minutes, even after that, it still isn't safe because you have to let it cool and then decant the water from the top into another container to avoid any sediments that fell to the bottom from getting into what you are going to drink.

I am pretty sure I can conceive of Mexico... so go there, drink some water from a local water source, and then tell us how the diarrhea feels. Also, look up trolling because it doesn't mean what I think you think it means. Then look up the TOS of Neowin regarding calling people trolls on here. If you want an example of a troll, see .Neo's comment about elementary school.

I have. Never ended up with diarrhea either. I guess it must have been because I was in the mountains.

For an $11,000 machine they could have spent some more time on the design.

okay. Where was it said that people needed to make themselves sick?

On topic: my point has been that you don't need to spend 11,000 to have great tasting coffee. And trust that there is a difference in coffee. Just that if you smoke you might not tell the difference between cheap and quality. But then sometimes quality coffee coffee isn't prepared well either. I know of a place that does that.
