Anyone have any experience using Kirkland Signature Water with their espresso machine?

Kirkland Signature Water is evidently rebranded from Niagara water as per Consumer Reports. The water analysis from Niagara is in the link below.

I will leave the impressions of the report to the experts here as I am learning about waters myself.

I've used this more recently a replacement to my tap water for my cold brew. I noticed a much more consistent taste and maybe more important to me is that any cream/milk mixes better with it.

Probably not feedback that's as useful in a espresso setting though.

From reviewing several threads, I get the impression this would be a 'safe' water to use and would probably benefit from adding additional alkalinity like potassium bicarbonate ~ 40 mg/L.

Price per gallon is not bad ~$0.75/gallon.
