Have you thoroughly cleaned and descaled it lately? Often even a poor coffee
maker can be half decent after a good Cleancaf session. Scale exacerbates
low brew temp problems plus the obviously nasty old oils etc need to be
removed. If brew water temp still way low after cleaning with Cleancaf might
try the hot water in the tank trick to help.

On the topic of brew tempertures, I started looking at the technivorm
brewers the other day, as that is the one really nice thing I felt I
was lacking.  I wanted to see how far off, my actual coffee pot was,
with regards to temp.  So I attacked the problem, from a few areas to
see what my free Gevalia coffee pot was doing.
The coffee pot is a bit over a year old and I just descaled/fully cleaned it.
I placed a thermal probe, in the drip chamber on top of the coffee,
and Had the handy, IR probe near by.  Brew time on this pot is about 5
min or so for a full 12 cup pot.  (This was not really a scientific
exploration here, more just curiosity.)  Well the first readings I got
from water pouring over the probe were 160, then it quickly (within
the first "cup" on the side reading) went to 180, and by the 10 cup
mark sat at 194.   Thinking this was going to be pretty much right
where it was going to stay about half way though the pot, I lifted the
top and took a thermal reading right on the water coming out of the
head on the unit.  209.1
So, I wonder how much of the cup profile of the coffee am I missing, I
know it takes a bit for this coffee pot to warm up however I don't
have the money to upgrade it at the moment.  Based on what I have
read, I would say for a free coffee maker this is doing pretty good.
PS.  I never have nor never will subscribe to Givalia.  I got
(permenently borrowed) this coffee maker from my parents since they
had an extra when I my other died.

Ok, I'll bite ... what's "the hot water in the tank trick"?

Just that, fill tank with hot water rather than cold water. I don't know how
well it works from personal experience (haven't done drip in years) but
others have written it helps raise overall brew temp, especially early brew
temp.

This can help significantly.  Quite some time ago, I would run water
through my Mr. Coffee (that I no longer have) then use that hot water
to actually brew the coffee.  One must be careful though because it
will brew much more quickly.  I had to monitor the brew and throttle
with the on/off switch.  The coffee did turn out better.

Floyd, Floyd, Floyd...
Contrarianism IS supported on this list.
But the answer is: Drink Folgers...
Good enough for Tom, good enough for many on the list, it just might have
some basis for being good....
