perhaps there is a thread for this shit already, but I fucking brewed coffee at 180F for a million years. Somehow that fucking number has stuck in my brain. Currently the internet says, "The brewing temperature of the water used is very important. It should be between 195 F (91 C) and 205 F (96 C). The closer to 205 F (96 C) the better. Boiling water (212 F - 100 C) should never be used, as it will burn the coffee."
Fuck what have I been drinking for eons.... brown fucking water?! Doh!
