That seemingly harmless kettle. If you're serious about your beans and your gear, you need to get yourself a temperature-controlled kettle. The perfect water temperature for coffee hovers between 195 and 205 degrees, well below the 212-degree boiling point. So if your water is too hot, the beans will over-extract, and you'll get a bitter taste; in contrast, if the water is too cool, you'll risk a sour, slightly weak taste.
The temperature-controlled kettle fixes this dilemma. Most models allow you to choose the temperature within a couple of degrees and hold that temperature awhile, if, say, you need to blow-dry your hair or something. Plus, this simple gadget improves dusty, less-oiled preground beans, as well as subpar beans.
Mornings just got more regimented—and way better.
