Must either be measuring temp in the brewed cup or brew temp with a very
slow thermometer. Don't know of any beans that like actual brew temps way
down at 175f!

I'm really glad you said that miKe. I was just thinking this
morning that so far I really haven't found any coffee that I like at 200f.
I have been enjoying most of my home roast between 175 and 185, maybe
occassionaly hitting 190. Maybe it's just me, but anything over 190, so
far, lends toward an overcooked, ever ever so slightly "burnt" taste. Well
burnt is too harsh, but I don't know how else to describe it. Of course I
am still quite new at this and I have only experienced maybe a dozen
different beans so maybe I will soon come across those that like higher
Now I very seldom grind to a drip level, and that may be the case.
I don't do drip, I will do AP, FP, SGP, Chemex, KMB.
