Actually, distilled water could be the worse type for your espreeso machine. H-B thinks that Crystal Geyser Alpine spring water is the best water to use. Here is a little info from WWL on the subject you might find interesting.

This thread is a must read for anyone new to "Internet Coffee." Unfortunately it gets buried all too often and doesn't get read (for example it took me about 15 minutes to find it and I knew what I was looking for!).
The thread. It hasn't been updated in a while, but it will still help with a lot of the random acronyms that we just throw around without even thinking.
