How Hot Do You Like Your Single Serve Coffee?
We all know this question comes up or a reaction to having coffee from a certain machine or cafe - how hot do you like your coffee? How hot is it? Brew temperature is one thing, but having the right temperature in the cup is another. There's also a variety of factors - do you have milk in your coffee? Do you like it with a lot of milk or none? Do you put it in a travel mug or just sip from a regular cup? Our preference is for it to start piping hot and stay hot in our Bodum Verona coffee mug for at least 5 minutes, and then we enjoy it a bit more on the medium hot side.
What's your preference? How hot do you like your coffee?

I can usually drink right after my Bosch Tassimo brewed my coffee. Having milk does not seem to affect the temperature much to me since the milk is being dispensed through the machine as well. With weather being this cold, my coffee does not take long to cool.
I use the Nespresso D290 and I'd like my coffee hotter because they usually turned warm after I got got milk frothed. Any suggestion in getting a hot cup of coffee out of my D290 will be great, thanks.
I wait 3 to 5 minutes before drinking anything that comes out of my Keurig B50 or Bosch Tassimo, so I'm guessing 140F to 150F? (never actually measured it) I hate the "surface of the sun" temperature most coffee chains use (Tim Hortons, Starbucks, etc) since it takes at least 15 to 30 minutes before I can tolerate a sip. Any Cannuck will tell you that a "large black double-double" can substitute for an instant hand warmer in the Winter or a "3rd-degree burn-inducing device" in the Summer.
My Keurig B70 leaves the joe a little hot for my tastes. When I drop a double k-cup in my travel mug, I leave it black & keep the top off for about 10 minutes. When using a ceramic cup at the house, a splash of milk & a good stir makes for a perfect temperature beverage.
192 degrees F. The exact temp of my Keurig B70 is just about perfect.
Actually, if it were a couple degrees warmer, I wouldn't mind all that much. Might even be better, although I seem to recall someone telling me that hotter isn't necessarily better. I'm sure some coffee geek will come along and correct me.
