"Needed" maybe debatable, desirable absolutely. Ability to fine tune the
brew temp is one of the features of the much touted Clover. Easy to confirm
benefit via manual brew methods.

miKe, did you ever try the Clover?  If so, what were your thoughts?  I've
only had one cup, at a Starbucks.  I thought it was better than their
regular drip coffee, but that may well have been the "special" beans that
are only available with the Clover cup.

Seth,
I've had "clovered" coffee at Cafe Grumpy in Manhattan a number of
times.  It makes a fairly clean cup, (which I tend to like,  I dislike
chewing on french press mud).  To my palate it's better than ordinary
drip brewing.  It's a great way for a high volume shop to
brew-to-order, which is it's major strength.
The advantages are all on the commercial end of things... you can
adjust temperature on the fly,  and can make a fresh cup in a short
amount of time, with minimal hands on effort.  I've heard complaints
that it uses a LOT of coffee (much like the aeropress).
On the home side, we can have the same level of control of temp and
brew time without the $11,000 price tag,  just that we can't do it a
few hundred times a day.
