I know we offer French Press but I know its unrealistic to serve every customer with the Press.
Can you change the temperature of your machine? Just an idea i guess.
I don't really understand the whole "so hot that my taste buds fall of my tongue" hotness of coffee.
What really scares me is when people want their milk that hot...eeek.
I think I can agree with your testing. From what I understand, the closer the coffee is to our body temp ~100 degrees, the more we can recognize all the flavors present.
I usually find all the best flavors start jumping out about mid-cup, which is probably near 120. I really don't start drinking my coffee until about 140 anyways.
I'm not sure how to rapidly bring it down without compromising the cup. I wonder if there is a natural progression that must take place, or could you blast the stream with some Freon and cool it down on the spot. :)
What if you brewed it into a chilled vessel? And then tested that vs. the normally brewed coffee when both are at the same temp... see if there is any difference in flavors.
Best bet is to tell everyone, "Don't burn your face off." or "I'd recommend waiting four minutes before drinking that. The flavors REALLY start to come out then. Trust me, you'll be glad you waited."
There's the ever popular. "Dude, what's the f#ckin' rush?"
Most likely you will have to invent something spectacular and sell your great idea to everyone else after you are penniless from all the R&D.
I am in coffee so I am already penniless but the idea of maximizing it so I am dollarless is appealing....
I am not talking about milk nor espresso. I am talking about drip coffee. NOT french press which gets funky if its cold but filter drip.
100 degrees of heaven.
