This. I have some picky ones, I'm also in the hoosier state donatello, there are some grounds with water I wouldn't shower in let alone drink...there is one that comes to mind that has the worst sulphur/rotten egg water ever. I don't use kool-aid but use gatorade powder, changes the taste & adds electrolytes.
