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.

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

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.

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.

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.

You are right. Nobody ever gets sick from drinking local water in Mexico... which is why all traveling agencies and insurance companies as well as the locals tell you not to do it.

Starbucks? Don't they double roast most of their beans which is were that burnt flavor comes from. Sad that they control most of the market in the USA now. Even local shops that have to compete with the neighborhood Starbucks, Gets interesting since many of them are buying from Starbucks subsidiaries and basically buying and reselling Starbucks coffee, sometimes without knowing it.

Interesting perspective. Yea I'm not fond of Starbucks coffee. Their market is selling espresso tasting coffee and surgary drinks. Although given that I do like a good espresso sometimes I do prefer Starbucks over others. Thanks for bringing that up. My point about tastes in coffee. Try Starbucks, Seattle's Best, and McDonald's coffee. Compare the regular coffee, then their darker coffee. You should taste a difference.

There's a difference between mountain water from proper wellsand sources and open nature water where animals have been defecating and dying. one is about as clean as water gets, the other, marginally better than you average American tap water.

Yep. Some people will never be able to figure that out though.

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

:/

guess they need to drink some good coffee before they can go solving the great problems in the universe. :laugh:
