Topic: Hammacher Schlemmer (9 msgs / 172 lines)
1) From: John M. Howison
We coffee geeks have got a problem.  I cling to the faith that the
likes of Tom and Mike and the "poster" boys and girls reading this
post have the finest noses -- the finest, best-trained  tasting organs
--  available.  I recall no argument on this list that our Fahrenheit
195/205 brewing temperature range is debatable.
Whoa.  Along comes a brewer-merchant with a reputation for responsible
testing  procedures offering a "the best single serving coffee maker"
that allows a brewing range topping at 192 degrees and bottoming at
187 ! !!
Does HS's mass market consist of coffee drinkers whose tasting organs
have been perverted by habit -- leaving to us thoughtful geeks the
awareness that hotter is better?  Or perhaps HS's coffee-maker
Maintains repeat Maintains 187/192 throughout a three-or-four-minute
brewing cycle while my French Press or Clever filter only Start repeat
Start at 195/295.  Perhaps . . .
What's the real deal?

Actually I believe the Aeropress also recommends 185 range. Too hot brings more bitter.

You really think they have "responsible testing?"  I'd suggest it's a 
lot closer to really good marketing and attention to profit 
margins.  The best single server coffee maker was likely the Clover 
and might now be www.trifectaexperience.com, but there is no way it's 
a machine from HS.

Well, for 3400.00 per copy for the Trifecta I would hope I would be 
satisfied.  At that price I would never admit it if I was not either.

Some like one temp. Some like another. Good coffee so so subjective perfect
can not even be part of our coffee vocabulary. Well I guess I can be but it
doesn't do any thing for me. Did I make that perfectly clear?
