Coffee Temperature

What coffee temperature should you use? Brew coffee with water at 195 to 205 degrees for the best coffee extraction. There is no right coffee temperature for drinking, because the flavor changes with temperature. Most people drink coffee at 140 degrees. The recommended drinking coffee temperature ranges from 120 to 160 degrees, depending on how much you want to feel warmth versus flavor in the cup.
