This post begins with an admission.
I have been known to (ahem) forget to pay the water bill and not discover the oversight until the county cuts the utility. But I learn from my mistakes! As soon as it happens, I explain to the children that not showering is fun, and you can always brush your teeth with one of those big jugs of spring water that daddy rushed to the store to buy.
The last time this happened, the utility came back on a mere four hours after it was cut, and we had several gallons of spring water left.
I decided to use some of this water to make a pot of coffee, and let me just say: wow, wow, wow, wow.
The coffee tasted so fresh and clean. We had two whole-bean blends in the house (Batdorf & Bronson’s Dancing Goats, and Peet’s Major Dickason Blend), and we could really taste their distinct differences like never before. The Dancing Goats, which we often buy, reveals a lively sweet note when made with spring water. The Major Dickason tasted more smoky.
We’re never going back to tap.
Has anyone else made this leap?
